Common Injury Types

While every accident is different, our lawyers have discovered that a substantial number of the Madison, IL accident victims who visit us have suffered similar personal injuries. Below are a few examples:

  • Broken bones: these can range from small breaks on fingers or toes that are more as a distraction than anything, to agonizing shattered bones that result in extended rehab and physical therapy.
  • Whiplash: this is a condition that most commonly is caused by car accidents, and happens when a sudden force or change in direction causes muscles and soft tissue to move faster than they would under usual circumstances.
  • Cuts and scrapes: while many people think that these are minor injuries, these can potentially cause infection if not immediately dealt with.
  • Traumatic brain injuries: the speed and sudden impact of car accidents or falls often results in concussions or other head injuries. If not dealt with properly, TBIs can lower brain function and potentially cause insomnia and recurring headaches. Most accident victims ignore the likelihood that they might have suffered a TBI, and thus do not get treatment until it is too late.
  • Internal bleeding: this most commonly happens in more serious accidents, like high-speed car accidents or falls from great heights. The forces from these accidents can cause damage to your organs, and without urgent treatment, these injuries can be life-threatening.
