A sudden, devastating accident turned your life upside down. You are in terrible pain, unable to work, and are worried about how you are going to pay your medical bills. If this sounds familiar, we urge you to schedule a free consultation with our personal injury team to find out how we can help you overcome these challenges. As attorneys who focus on the most serious injuries, we are prepared to fight to get you the compensation you deserve—and you won’t owe us a dime unless we are successful.

Types of Accident Injuries

We see all types of accidents in our practice. Many of our personal injury clients were victims of car accidents caused by distracted and reckless drivers. Some of our most severely injured clients were involved in accidents with negligent commercial semi-truck drivers, or were run off the road while riding a motorcycle. Regardless of the type of accident they were in, our clients come to us with a variety of serious injuries, including the following:

Back, neck, and spinal cord injuries. 

Injuries to these areas can cause chronic pain, limited mobility, and even paralysis. Victims may need years of physical and rehabilitative therapy to live with these injuries.

Traumatic brain injury

Ranging from a mild concussion to permanent cognitive and physical impairment, brain injuries must be diagnosed quickly for the best chance at a positive outcome. 

Fractures and soft tissue injury.

Broken bones can be serious and even life-threatening. Soft tissue injuries such as whiplash can lead to a lifetime of pain.

All of these injuries have the potential to cause life-long complications without the right kind of treatment and therapy and can even be fatal in extreme situations. If a loved one was killed in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, our team will investigate the possibility of a wrongful death claim.

Why You Should See a Doctor Right Away

If you or a loved one is in a Northern Virginia vehicle accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Seeing a doctor immediately is important in order to:

Diagnose your injuries.

The excitement and adrenaline caused by an accident can mask symptoms of a serious injury. A doctor will be able to determine if you have broken bones, a back or neck injury, soft tissue damage, or a concussion.

Start treatment.

Some injuries require immediate treatment to prevent long-term and even fatal consequences. The sooner your injuries are diagnosed, the sooner you can start life-saving treatment and avoid lifelong problems.

Provide documentation.

Medical records from your emergency room visit will be important to prove the seriousness of your injuries in an insurance claim later on. Delaying medical treatment can jeopardize your injury claim.

After your initial medical assessment, your next step should be to contact the injury attorneys at MacDowell Law Group, P.C., for a free legal assessment.
