Consequences of Car Accidents in Columbus
It can be easy to forget just how large and dangerous cars are. Collisions between motor vehicles can throw drivers and passengers around, leading to severe injuries, including:
- Broken Bones and Fractures
- Damage to Ligaments
- Internal Injuries to Organs
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and Concussions
- Injuries to the Spinal Cord and Neck
In severe cases, individuals can lose limbs or suffer from paralysis. The worst car accidents can even lead to the wrongful death of innocent victims.
Recovery from these injuries often demands extensive medical treatment. You might need multiple surgeries and physical therapy to recover. In some cases, you may never fully return to perfect health. Even worse, all of these treatments cost tremendous amounts of money that you should not be expected to pay on your own.
The team at PMHP Law is dedicated to providing tireless support to car accident victims in Columbus. We will work aggressively to ensure you receive the medical care you need and the compensation necessary to pay your bills.
Let Us Investigate Your Car Accident
Your health is the most important issue after a car accident. We encourage our clients to focus on their recovery while allowing us to take on any legal challenges associated with your collision.
We will begin working on your case immediately by interviewing witnesses, reviewing the scene of the accident, and accessing any police reports tied to your collision. We may even reconstruct your accident in some circumstances.
It is vital that you contact us quickly after an accident. Memories fade over time and it can be more difficult to prove another driver’s fault as time goes on. Additionally, the state of Georgia only gives you two years to file a claim after a car accident. If you wait too long, you may be unable to get any compensation for your injuries.
