Floridians already know that our state is one of the most dangerous in the nation for auto accidents. But as they say, the numbers don’t lie, and sometimes we all need a reminder of just how dangerous our state’s streets and highways truly are. In 2009, there were an average of 646 auto accidents in Florida every day. That shocking statistic illustrates the scope of our auto accident problems but is woefully inadequate for illustrating the real costs of these accidents. The real costs are serious injuries, and head injuries are some of the most serious of all to victims and their families. Here in Florida and elsewhere, auto accidents are the leading cause of head injuries, and many head injury victims lose the ability to work and enjoy their favorite activities through no fault of their own. They need an experienced Orlando auto accident lawyer who knows how to help them receive the fair and just compensation they deserve. That’s why they call Orlando car accident attorney James O. Cunningham.

Head Injuries Change Victims’ Lives Forever
The severity and lasting effects of a head injury are often as unique as the victims are, but if there is one common thread that they share, it is the steep costs of medical treatment. Head injuries often require immediate and extensive medical treatment, and between the procedures, lengthy hospitals stays and follow-up care, medical bills quickly climb into the tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars for head injuries such as these:
- Severe concussions
- Contusions (bruises on the brain)
- Skull fractures
- Scalp lacerations
- Facial injuries that require extensive reconstructive surgeries and therapy
- Hemorrhages and hematomas
- Other devastating head injuries
