A car accident may result in injuries to the driver, passengers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists.

The firm’s goal is to remove the physical and financial burden of such injuries and to make the process as simple as possible for victims and their families.
Common Automobile Accident Injuries
One of the most common injuries sustained from a car accident is whiplash. Whiplash occurs when abrupt or abnormal force is applied to the neck and causes it to move beyond its normal range of motion. This causes damage to the soft tissue, specifically the muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and can be very painful, but can usually be treated at home using over-the-counter pain medication and ice and heat therapy. In other cases, the injuries that a victim sustains may be catastrophic and the medical costs astronomical. In these instances, victims will be facing extreme challenges to their financial well-being and even their own survival. Other injuries include:
- Broken bones
- Internal organ damage
- Spinal cord injury
- Head trauma
- Brain injury
- Facial injuries
- Dental trauma
Victims of auto accidents should seek immediate medical attention for any injuries sustained, since claims for damages typically depend on medical records that link the car accident to the injuries the victim received. Although most cases are handled by insurance companies and settled quickly, the goal of insurance companies is to minimize the amount of money paid out. The Law Offices of Boston work to obtain the maximum compensation possible for victims and their families.
