Knee injuries following a car accident

I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury lawyer. The trauma and blunt force of a truck or car accident can cause some serious health risks. Items within and from the vehicle are thrown about the vehicle during a car crash including parts of the windshield, unsecured objects in the car, parts of the steering column and others. In addition, the force of the spin or sudden stop can put stress on your entire body and that of your passengers – especially children.

Car accidents can affect many parts of the body; however, the knee is consistently affected in vehicle crashes. Symptoms and issues occur following an accident and are sometimes difficult to identify.

Hit-and-Run Accident in Goleta

I’m Ed Smith, a Goleta car accident attorney.  Sadly, hit-and-run accidents happen way too often.  What you will typically see with hit-and-runs is that the individual driving is either uninsured or guilty of some other unlawful offense. Due to this fact, the driver decides to leave the scene of the accident rather than wait for help and the police to arrive.
