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.

Working with Andrew and his team has been--without exception--one of the most pleasant, productive, and professional experiences of my adult life. I was seriously injured in an accident in July, 2018, in Virginia. I was driving a company vehicle that was registered in Maryland, for a company that was based in Wisconsin. And I live in New Jersey, where my personal vehicles are insured. The several jurisdictions involved presented a very unique case that demanded an experienced and nuanced strategy. I found Andrew Thomas (of Dulaney, Lauer, & Thomas) through some online research. And it is noteworthy that Andrew has worked the other side of the aisle--he used to work with insurance companies. Andrew took on my case with the assurance that he would work it with no less energy than he does each of his cases. At each turn, and with each question I had, Andrew and Paralegal Misty kept me informed, returned my calls, provided detailed explanations, and kept me feeling like I was in the loop and there was an eventual end to our journey. Nearly five years after the accident, we settled out of court for a significant sum in recognition of my personal injuries. The settlement was much more than I had expected. And without Andrew & Misty, I am sure the award would have been much less. If you are looking for professionalism, knowledge, dedication, answerability, responsiveness, integrity, and human-level communication from a personal injury attorney--look no further. You have found him. Thank you, Andrew and Misty. Gary Daley
