Automobile Accident Injuries
Automobile accidents cause damage to vehicles, property and, most importantly, injury or even death to drivers, passengers or pedestrians. The bills build up quickly, and the recovery process can be long and painful – in fact, you may never recover completely from automobile accident injuries. As long as you were not responsible for causing the accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages or other income, pain and suffering and even diminished quality of life. This compensation may come from the insurance of other drivers, commercial establishments, governments responsible for infrastructure maintenance and design, or even your own underinsured motorist insurance coverage.

Take, for example, these photos. The first (below) depicts Chris S.’s broken jaw. Chris had an unusual type of automobile accident. A tool fell off of a truck in front of him, bounced through the windshield and struck Chris in the jaw, fracturing it in several places. The truck had no insurance, but Douglas Standriff used these photos in court to prove the severity of Chris’ injury, and he was able to get obtain a large award from Chris’ own uninsured motorist coverage.
The second photo (on left) shows Karla Z’s neck. She was rear-ended by a commercial vehicle. Her brand new Mustang was a total loss. After two years of physical therapy, injections and pain management efforts, Karla, just 27 at the time, was forced to undergo spinal surgery. The damaged disc ("herniated disc" at C4-5) in her neck was removed and replaced with bone grafts, which were in turn held in place using a metal plate and screws, with the ultimate result of Karla’s neck bones fusing together. These dramatic photos showed beyond a doubt that Karla’s injury was severe and permanent, and she received a significant settlement.
