MINNEAPOLIS CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS – $5 MILLION IN AWARDS FOR REAR END CAR ACCIDENT COLLISION SETTLEMENTS
MINNEAPOLIS INJURY LAWYERS at the Schmidt Salita Law Team have recently settled car accident injury claims of more than $5 million dollars where the injuries were caused by the fault of the driver that “rear-ended” the car in which the Schmidt Salita client was a passenger.
REAR END COLLISIONS ARE A MAJOR CAUSE OF MINNESOTA CAR ACCIDENTS.
Nearly 80% of the car accident cases handled by the Schmidt Salita Law Team have involved rear end collisions. Rear end collisions cause whiplash injuries and concussion injuries. The force of the rear end collision causes significant trauma of the neck and back of the victim. It sometimes causes trauma to the brain as it is smashed back and forth inside the skull, causing a brain concussion injury resulting in chronic Post Concussion Syndrome, a form of mild Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI).
WHIPLASH INJURIES CAN RESULT IN PERMANENT DISABILITY.
Whiplash injuries are no joke! Whiplash injuries can involve permanent damage to the muscles, ligaments, nerves, and intervertebral discs of the neck and back. In some cases, surgery is required. In other cases, physical therapy and injection therapy is needed long-term. In other cases, the injury victim simply lives on for many years with the misery of chronic neck and back pain. The American Medical Association has declared low back pain as the #1 cause of disability and medical bills in the US workforce.
CONCUSSION INJURIES CAN RESULT IN PERMANENT DISABILITY.
Concussion injuries can result in Post Concussion Syndrome which can result in permanent disability due to long-term cognitive, vision, balance, and psychological disabilities.
