One of the most common, and most serious, injuries you can sustain in a car accident is a neck or head injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, you could be dealing with high medical bills, time away from work and a lengthy recovery period. A personal injury claim may help you recover some compensation to deal with these expenses, and a Gainesville car accident attorney can help you file your claim. 

However, you may be able to prevent a neck injury altogether by following these safety tips: 

  • Make sure your headrest is installed and positioned at the correct height.
  • Wear your seat belt.
  • If you think you are about to be in a car accident, put your head back against the head rest and keep your body facing forward in your seat.
  • Buy a car with high rear-crash safety ratings – some of the worst neck injuries occur in rear end collisions. 

Even with the best safety precautions, you can still become injured in a car accident. A Gainesville car accident attorney can help if you call 540-341-0007 and schedule a free case evaluation. Let the team at Dulaney, Lauer and Thomas fight to get you the compensation you deserve.

I think it’s important that the victim take action. Negligence that results in harming someone else is unacceptable, which is why it’s necessary to take legal action, just so the negligent person will try and avoid to be negligent again in the future.
