AUTO ACCIDENT LAWYER IN FAIRFIELD, CA HELPS WITH READ-END COLLISIONS

Rear-end accidents are the most common types of accidents that occur in the United States. These accidents vary widely in damage and injury and could be as harmless as a low speed fender-bender that leaves nothing more than some damaged paint. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. The accident could involve a vehicle traveling at full speed colliding with a vehicle at a complete stop, creating a far more serious and dangerous situation for both parties involved. Because the majority of minor accidents happen to be rear-end collisions, individuals involved in these accidents tend to overlook some of the important steps that need to be taken following any accident. This is a huge mistake! Even accidents that seem harmless can have unforeseen effects on your health and it is imperative that you get yourself evaluated by a medical professional and then seek out legal advice from an automobile accident lawyer.

Types of Injuries

  • Whiplash – This occurs when the head is thrown in a different direction from the rest of the body. The ligaments, tendons and muscles that hold your neck and head in place experience enough force to push them beyond their normal range of motion, causing pain, stiffness and damage in the neck and shoulder area. This whiplash effect is often what causes the more serious neck and back injuries described below.
  • Neck and Back Injuries – When serious whiplash forces take effect on the human body resulting from automobile accidents, more serious neck and back injuries are the result. These injuries are costly and painful and include: herniated or bulging disks, soft tissue damage (ligaments, tendons and muscles), and fractured vertebrae.
  • Face and Head Injuries – Airbags are generally designed to deploy during accidents that occur at speeds of 20mph or greater. The majority of rear-end accidents occur at speeds under 20mph, rendering the airbag useless. Rear-end accidents that occur at less than 20mph can still propel an occupants head/face into the dashboard or steering wheel, breaking your jaw, nose, and/or other facial bones. These types of accidents can even detach the retina in your eye requiring surgery.
  • Airbag Injuries – Airbags deploy in an attempt to prevent injuries and save lives, but sometimes the airbags themselves can cause injury to the neck and head. These injuries can range from whiplash and minor lacerations to serious neck, back and spinal cord injuries.
  • Seatbelt Injuries – In high impact crashes, the seatbelt that is used to save your life can also cause you injury. The force of your body being thrust up against the seatbelt during an accident can cause lacerations, bruising, and even broken bones in your hip, chest and torso area.
  • Wrist, Finger, Hand and Arm Injuries – The inside of a vehicle during an accident is a violent and chaotic scene – airbags have probably deployed, the sheer force of the impact has sent everything in the car up in the air and flying around, and occupant’s extremities get caught up in the mix. Your hands and other extremities could become wedged between the airbag and the steering wheel or they could be thrown through broken glass. The possibilities are endless, and there are a variety of injuries you could sustain: lacerations, bruising, broken fingers and torn ligaments, among others. If you have suffered any of the injuries listed above, contact a Fairfield automobile accident lawyer today.

If you have been in a rear-end collision it is important that you get yourself medically evaluated immediately. No accident is minor enough to skip getting yourself checked out. Whiplash and other neck and back injuries can go unnoticed immediately following an accident and still cause long term pain and damage.

    This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!

    Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.

    “This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
