How Can a Lawyer Help With a Car Wreck Injury?

Even the most experienced drivers can find themselves in harm's way if a negligent driver makes a mistake on the road in front of them. Whether it’s an honest mistake or a careless move, suddenly, what was once a quiet and orderly road becomes a nightmare, sending motorists into a frenzy as they try to maneuver themselves away from the damage. Unfortunately, these kinds of situations happen every day all over the world, often leaving the victims to pick up the pieces of their wreck on their own with newfound painful injuries, including emotional damage that’s caused many individuals to never get behind the wheel again.


While major car accidents will almost always require hospitalization, minor wrecks can also cause serious physical harm that prevents you from living a normal life. In some cases, car accident victims have developed disabilities from their injuries, forcing them to change their way of living to cope with their new condition. All of these injuries will result in a significant medical expense once you’ve received medical treatment, and if you aren’t independently wealthy, it can take a serious toll on your financial security and quickly become more stressful than the accident itself. You likely want to focus on your physical recovery, but with so many other aspects of your accident requiring your attention, it’s easy to become overwhelmed with the stress of the situation. However, you shouldn’t worry too much; a car accident lawyer can help mitigate the consequences and guide you towards the best possible outcome.

Teaming up with a skilled car accident lawyer is an investment in your future, one that will give you the highest odds of recovering the full extent of the damage you sustained. Car wreck injuries vary wildly, but one fact remains the same: without rightful compensation, you could end up paying for the consequences of your accident out-of-pocket, which is incredibly unfair when you didn’t cause the accident in the first place. At Morgan & Morgan, we understand this very well, and we’re prepared to do everything in our power to ensure that you recover everything you’re entitled to, regardless of the size or severity of your case.

In the most difficult moments of your life, you can trust that Morgan & Morgan has your back. Contact us today to get started.

  • What Does a Car Wreck Injury Look Like?

    Car wreck injuries encompass anything from minor scrapes and bruises to life-threatening conditions. However, even minor fender-benders can cause a driver to sustain a permanent injury, so it’s important to speak with your attorney about all of your damages to ensure that you’re compensated fairly for the harm you’ve endured. Here are a few examples of car wreck injuries:

    • Lacerations/broken bones
    • Internal bleeding
    • Head injuries, such as concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
    • Whiplash
    • Herniated discs
    • Soft-tissue injuries
    • Emotional damage, such as PTSD
    • Burns
    • Arm, wrist, and hand injuries
    • Eye damage

    A seemingly minor injury can worsen to become life-changing under the right circumstances, so it’s important for the attorney who represents you to maximize your compensation. In fact, many car accident victims sustain injuries that require consistent rehabilitative treatment, which can add up to a sizable amount over the years. You should make sure that your attorney understands all of your internal and external injuries so they can help you reach compensation that will protect you for years to come. 

    In more serious accidents, there’s a possibility that one or multiple drivers could lose their life. Losing a loved one is never easy, but it’s even more painful when their life was lost in an accident that could have been prevented. The surviving family members could recover funeral benefits in these situations, and while compensation can’t reverse the damage, it can give you the opportunity to pay off the surrounding expenses and move on.

  • How Can an Attorney Help With a Car Wreck Injury?

    Your attorney will serve as a buffer between you and the organization you’re seeking damages from, allowing you to take a back seat to the process. Their involvement creates an opportunity for you to sit back and focus on your physical recovery, which is something you might not have been able to do previously. Instead of fielding calls and trying to decipher legal paperwork, your attorney is now responsible for all those aspects, and they can use their legal expertise to ensure that everything is in order. They can also offer legal advice during an uncertain time in your life, point you towards the path with the greatest possibility of success, and make sure that your interests are always at the forefront of the litigation.

    Having an attorney by your side also helps your situation when it comes time to negotiate a settlement. Every injury affects one person differently than another, so it’s often difficult for a third party to look across the table and accurately diagnose the extent of the damage. You understand how much pain you’re in, but without the help of an attorney, the third party might not understand, which can result in a lower settlement offer for you and your family. An attorney will be able to use their experience to display your injuries and suffering to the at-fault party to make them understand your condition and, in the end, maximize your compensation. They can also advocate for future treatments and therapies if your condition calls for them, allowing you to live your life knowing that you can afford the medical care you need to support your condition.

  • Can I Afford an Attorney?

    You may have heard the stigma that car accident lawyers are costly to hire, but we at Morgan & Morgan have worked hard to change that industry standard. We understand that you’re coming through our doors because of a financial burden caused by an unforeseen accident, so it isn’t right to shackle you with additional expenses while you’re trying to recover. Rather than burden you with legal fees, we take our fee from the favorable settlement or jury award to allow anyone the ability to afford proficient representation during an uncertain time in their life, regardless of their financial situation. Not only does our contingency keep the costs low for you, but it also centralizes everyone involved around one singular goal: getting you the best possible results in your car accident case.

  • Why Choose Morgan & Morgan?

    When you’re searching for a lawyer to help with a car wreck injury, you’ll find that there are thousands of law firms who all say the same thing. Each webpage looks similar but with different information about how that specific firm is the only choice, so it’s difficult to trust one of these organizations based on their word alone. Instead, you should focus on what they’ve done for their clients in the past, as this is a good indicator of the level of service you’ll receive once you’ve retained one of their attorneys. In your research, you might find that many of these firms have difficulty finding success for their clients or that they haven't seen the inside of a courtroom in years, which are all signs of a law firm that is all talk and no action.

    At Morgan & Morgan, our settlements and verdicts speak for themselves, and our attorneys relish the opportunity to advocate for our client’s rights in the courtroom. Over the last three decades, we’ve helped thousands of individuals escape the consequences of unforeseen accidents and recovered over $10+ billion on their behalf, earning us the title of America’s largest personal injury firm. Despite our success, we’ve never let our size take away from the aspects of our firm that made us who we are today, so we offer a best of both worlds approach for all our clients: the resources of a corporate giant and the attention that only a small firm can provide. You never have to sacrifice when you choose Morgan & Morgan, nor do you have to worry about the attorney who represents you failing to put your interests at the forefront of the process. Our attorneys want to help. Fortunately for you, they’re some of the best in the business.
