Helping Injured Victims

Most car accidents don’t just leave the car itself damaged, but leave the passengers injured as well. Even if you don’t think you have been injured right after the accident, some injuries will show up days or weeks later, such as muscle strain, bruising, and back pain. Even serious injuries like brain trauma and whiplash aren’t realized by the victim until long after the day of the accident has passed. Don’t delay in seeking medical attention. For serious car accidents, all parties should get checked out immediately. Sometimes the adrenaline we experience after an accident can mask what is going on internally. Injuries such as internal bleeding can be diagnosed by a medical professional even if the victim doesn’t feel any different. Unchecked, these types of injuries can lead to shock or cardiac arrest, creating even more damage. It is best to be on the safe side and seek medical attention than to brush off a catastrophic injury.

Although we know to seek immediate medical attention after realizing we have sustained an injury from the accident, sometimes we neglect seeing a specialist in fear that our insurance won’t pay. Some insurance companies do use strategies to delay payment or nullify the contract you have with them, but T.J. knows how to elude these tactics to get you your compensation quickly. Not only will T.J. get you compensated for your medical bills, but also the funds for:

  • Time away from work

  • Pain and suffering

  • Lost wages

  • Lost earning potential
