Commonly Overlooked Injuries
At our firm, we help clients who suffer 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. These injuries can cause temporal headaches and 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 violently stretched, leading to occipital neuralgia. This nerve damage can cause inflammation, pain and numbness at the base of the skull.
Over our years of practicing personal injury law, we have built a network of medical professionals and experts. We often consult with these experts to determine the exact cause and extent of our clients’ injuries. This allows us to seek full and fair compensation for our clients, including their present and future medical expenses, lost wages, and damages for pain and suffering.
