When a driver or car manufacturer’s negligence causes an accident, that party might be liable to pay the victims’ compensation. Compensation can include the value of a variety of things, including:
- Your medical costs and expenses such as visits to doctors, surgeries, hospital stays, prescription drugs, physical therapy, and assistive devices
- The income you lost for missing work because of your injuries.
- Lost future income if you can’t return to work for some time (or ever).
- Pain and suffering caused by your injuries
- The emotional trauma that results from your injuries and the accident

Injuries from car accidents range in severity. Some injuries are evident immediately at the scene of an accident. Other injuries might not appear until days or weeks later. You must seek medical attention after a car accident, even if you do not have overt signs of an injury.
Our lawyers at Levine and Wiss handle all types of car accidents and see a variety of injuries. Some of the common injuries that result in Brooklyn car accident claims in and lawsuits include:
Brain Injuries from Serious Automobile Accidents
Head-on collisions and rear-end collisions often result in brain injuries called TBI or traumatic brain injury. TBI occurs when your brain suffers a severe rattling or shaking due to a serious blow to the head. The result of such a trauma is often quite serious. Since TBI is a closed head injury, you don’t always know right away that it has occurred.
TBI can result in memory loss, vision impairment, headaches, nausea, and dizziness. These can be permanent or temporary.
Brain injuries from car accidents can also include brain hemorrhages, skull fractures, coma, and permanent brain damage.
Lawsuits for Spinal Cord Injury Caused by Car Accidents
Head-on collisions and rear-Spinal cord injuries are some of the worst injuries caused by car accidents. Spinal cord injuries can result in permanent or temporary paralysis, loss of muscle control, inability to eat, walk, and breathe on your own. Even if temporary, spinal cord injuries can result in years of physical therapy, painful surgeries, assistive devices, and the need for in-home care.
Lawsuits for Back Injuries and Whiplash from Auto Accidents
Most car accidents result in some type of back injury just from the force of getting hit. It is common to have bulging or herniated discs, back strain, or neck pain (whiplash) in the days and weeks after a car accident. These can be extremely painful conditions that often require surgery. Physical therapy is inevitable.
Proving the cause of back and neck injuries can be tricky. They don’t always appear immediately. This is one reason that seeing a doctor after your car accident can be a crucial part of establishing a record of your injuries.
Lawsuits for Broken Bones from Automobile AccidentsBroken bones often result from even minor car accidents. We often see clients who have suffered broken noses, hips, ribs, legs, and more. Broken bones surely mean you will miss some time at work. Depending on what you break, you might never get back to normal activities. You also might need surgery and physical therapy.
Lawsuits for Emotional Trauma from Car Accidents
It is not uncommon to suffer PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), depression, or anxiety after a car accident, especially a big one. You might be afraid to drive, afraid to drive above a certain speed or on certain roads. You might begin to suffer panic attacks. Any of these emotional injuries can affect your ability to work, earn a living, and participate in the life you used to have.
All of these injuries can cause medical bills to pile up. At the same time, you are losing income while you try to recover. How will you keep up? This dilemma can make it difficult to focus on your health and wellness. It can make you accept a fast settlement for less than you really deserve.
