More than 2.4 million people in the United States are injured in car accidents in a single year and more than 254,000 of those injured car accident victims are in the state of Florida. No area of the state is immune from car accidents, especially not the busier areas such as Sunrise, Florida. While this city started as a small community called Sunrise Golf Village in the 1970s, it experienced major growth over the next few decades and now boasts more than 90,000 people. With growth comes more traffic and with more traffic comes more collisions.

Collisions on the road can happen in many different ways, all of which have the potential to end in severe injuries to anyone involved. Despite modern protections such as seat belts and airbags, the human body is extremely vulnerable to trauma in head-on collisions, rollovers, or rear-end collisions. Though rear-end collisions are often minimized by being called “fender-benders,” even these crashes can cause serious injuries that can affect many aspects of a person’s life.
The following are some examples of common injuries that may result from your car crash:
- Moderate or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI);
- Back injuries;
- Neck injuries, including whiplash;
- Fractured limbs;
- Broken ribs or collarbone;
- Spinal cord injury (SCI);
- Internal bleeding or organ damage.
Even if your injuries seem relatively minor, it is still always wise to get checked out by a medical professional as soon as you can after a traffic accident. Some injuries can be “silent” for some time before symptoms arise and can wreak havoc on your life. In other situations, victims may have obviously severe injuries that require emergency trauma care and may need extensive treatment over a long period of time.
Whether your medical bills and losses are relatively low or are overwhelming, you still deserve to be compensated for your losses under the law, either through an insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit. You should have a capable attorney on your side who knows how to obtain the compensation you need following a crash.Our Sunrise, FL Auto Accident Lawyer Will Protect Your Rights
