Oakland Car Accident Injury Attorney
About Car Accident Injuries in Oakland
The injuries a driver, passenger or other victim may sustain in a car accident will vary greatly depending on the particular incident. There are numerous factors that will come into play concerning the severity and type of car accident injuries that a person may experience, and at times it may even seem that luck plays a part. At the Law Offices of Clancy & Diaz, LLP we are experienced in representing clients who have sustained any type of injury in a car accident in the Oakland area. We welcome you to contact our law offices to schedule a free, confidential consultation with an attorney to discuss your case.
A person involved in a car accident may sustain any of the following types of injuries: head trauma, facial injuries, dental trauma, broken bones, lacerations, contusions, spinal cord injury, whiplash, damaged internal organs, internal bleeding, burns, and amputation. The following factors may influence what type of car accident injuries are sustained, and the severity of these:
Whether the victim was driving the vehicle, was a passenger, or was a pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicycle rider involved in the collision.
- Whether the victim was wearing his or her seatbelt at the time of the accident.
- The crashworthiness of the vehicle.
- The location and force of impact.
- The size of the vehicles involved (a great disparity between the size and weight of vehicles will generally mean that the occupants of the smaller vehicle will suffer greater injury, as in a car-truck accident.)
