We understand the types of injuries that are often overlooked and can help you pursue compensation for your injuries through a personal injury claim.

If you suspect you were injured in an accident, you should seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Then, an attorney can help you handle insurance issues and secure compensation for your injuries.

Commonly Overlooked Injuries

At our firm, we help clients who suffered from a wide range of injuries, including those that are frequently overlooked such as:

  • Carpal tunnel and nerve damage: Gripping the steering wheel or bracing yourself against the dashboard during an accident can cause carpal tunnel injuries, elbow injuries, wrist injuries and nerve damage, including ulnar nerve entrapment. Some symptoms of these types of injuries include numbness or radiating pain.
  • Jaw injuries and joint dysfunction: An injury to the jaw can lead to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), a dislocated jaw and other jaw injuries. This can lead to temporal headaches, jaw soreness and tightness as well as ringing in the ears.
  • Temporal and occipital nerve damage: With whiplash and other neck injuries, the occipital and temporal nerves can be stretched leading to occipital neuralgia. This nerve damage can cause inflammation, pain and numbness at the base of the skull.

Over our years of practice, we have built a network of medical professionals and experts. We often consult with the experts to determine the cause and extent of injuries. This allows us to seek full and fair compensation for our clients' injuries, including present and future medical expenses, lost wages and damages for pain and suffering.
