An automobile accident can be a life-altering, traumatic event. Even if your injuries are relatively minor, a car accident can still be very disruptive. In the aftermath of an accident, it is critical that you work with a lawyer who will help you recover the financial resources you need to move forward.
Based in Rutland and serving people throughout Vermont, Meub Associates, PLC, provides skilled, knowledgeable legal representation to people injured in motor vehicle accidents. Our attorneys regularly represent people who have suffered so-called “soft tissue” injuries, such as whiplash, bruises, strains and sprains. We also help people who have sustained catastrophic injuries, such as broken bones, spine and back injuries, and head injuries. Our law firm also serves families who have lost a loved one in a car accident.
Our law firm represents people injured in T-bone accidents, rear-end collisions, distracted driving crashes, texting while driving accidents, collisions caused by DUI or drunk driving, and every type of accident.
We regularly represent people who have been hurt in low-speed collisions. Even low-impact car accidents at relatively low speeds can cause severe back and neck injuries. When a person travels in a car, even at low speeds, the body builds significant momentum. When a car impacts another vehicle, the momentum stored in the body goes to a person’s neck, since a person’s neck is not restrained by a safety belt.
The driver’s or passenger’s head often snaps forward at a high speed, causing the back of the neck to stretch beyond its natural curve. The term “whiplash” describes how a person’s head and neck take the force of all the momentum in the body. This can cause serious injury, even where there is little damage to the vehicle. The human body is simply not designed to withstand these kinds of forces.
Whiplash can lead to sprains, strains, herniated or ruptured disks, and a host of other problems. Even if you felt “OK” immediately following an accident, the effect of this accident could cause significant pain later on.
At Meub Associates, our Rutland car accident attorneys know how to build strong cases designed to maximize your compensation for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering. Whether your case is resolved in settlement or trial, we will be at your side throughout the process.
At Meub Associates we have made it our mission to meet the many different legal needs of people across Vermont.
