Common Injuries Sustained in Car Accidents in Union and Middlesex County, NJ, and throughout North Jersey
Car accidents in Plainfield, Rahway, Roselle, Scotch Plains, Springfield and the surrounding towns often result in serious, if not deadly, consequences. This is even more true if the car crash involved a motorcycle, truck or bus. Common injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents include:
- Internal injuries
- Head, neck and spinal trauma
- Broken and fractured bones
- Whiplash and concussions
- Heart attacks and strokes
- Severe mental anguish
What’s worse is that many less obvious injuries are not immediately known directly after the accident. In the hours and days after a crash, shock and adrenaline often cloud one’s judgement and ability to feel pain. It’s important to seek medical treatment immediately and follow doctor’s orders exactly. Additionally, if you find yourself dealing with any new symptoms, blurry vision, nausea, severe pain, etc., you need to go back to the doctor to be re-evaluated.
Mr. Calcagno will review all your medical records in an effort to make sure you receive maximum compensation for your injuries. He won’t be bullied by insurance companies looking for a quick settlement. He will protect your rights and interests following your car, truck or motorcycle crash in Summit, Union, Watchung, Westfield or anywhere else in New Jersey.
Andrew Calcagno Will Hold All Responsible Parties Liable for Your Auto Accident Injuries
Car accident lawyer Andrew Calcagno will work tirelessly to protect your rights and obtain maximum compensation if you or a loved one has been injured in any of the following types of auto accidents:
- Rear-end collision
- Hit-and-run accidents
- SUV rollovers
- Motorcycle crashes
- Truck accidents
- Bus accidents
- Train and subway accidents
Following a car accident, it’s important to get a full understanding of what happened that caused the accident. Mr. Calcagno works with skilled accident investigators and reconstruction specialists. He will review all medical records, witness statements and police reports. He will determine whether any illegal factors are in play: was the driver of the other car drunk, driving recklessly or using a cell phone and therefore distracted?
There are many potential liable parties including the driver(s) of the other vehicles involved in an accident or possibly the manufacturer of your car or any car parts. For example, if your car is equipped with a recalled Takata airbag, and you are injured in an accident due to metal shards flying out from the airbag, you may be able to hold the product maker liable for your injuries.
Whatever or whomever caused your accident, rest assured, Mr. Calcagno will get to the bottom of it and use the information to get you the compensation you deserve. If the person who caused your accident is uninsured or underinsured, you can rely on Mr. Calcagno to fight hard to win you the damage you need to pay your bills and more.
