An automobile accident in Alameda can inflict injuries that are shocking to witness. Survivors may struggle with obvious impairments, from the loss of limbs to scarring and disfigurement.
The professionals at the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, APC, know that some serious injuries one could suffer in a car crash include soft tissue injuries. Muscle damage, whiplash and similar internal injuries can leave victims suffering with their aftermath for years, perhaps even for the rest of their lives. Chronic pain is not uncommon with soft tissue injuries, for example, and sometimes nerve damage can lead to paralysis.
And yet, perhaps because these injuries may not be immediately obvious from the outside, we see time and time again that insurance companies try to play hardball with car accident victims who've suffered soft tissue injuries. They know they might be on the hook for expensive treatments, possibly over the long term. Faced with this, some insurance companies will even try to pretend that you don't have an injury at all. Suddenly, the burden of proof is on you to convince the world that you are hurt, that you are suffering and that you need help.
The Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, APC, have more than three decades of experience representing car accident victims in situations like this. We want to hear from car accident victims at the first sign of any unusual pains so that we can quickly take action on your behalf. Whether through a jury award or an insurance company settlement, we can help seek the compensation you need for the full range of care you may need with your soft tissue injury.
