“I highly recommend Carman and Bevington. I went to them after getting into my first accident. They were very helpful and walked me through this whole process that seemed a lot less stressful with their guidance. Melissa was especially helpful and attentive, she was always available to answer any questions. All emails were responded to very quickly.”
“Allen, Mike, and Melissa I can't thank you enough for being who you are and operating this business the way you do. Most lawyers can be intimidating and demeaning, not at Carman & Bevington. Here you are treated with respect, and honesty, but most of all as a human being. I will never hesitate to recommend this office to anyone in need of a great attorney.

Types of Injuries from Vehicle Accidents
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that about 2.3 million people need emergency medical treatment for injuries from motor vehicle accidents each year in the United States. Others might have minor injuries that do not require an emergency room visit but might need later treatment at a doctor’s office.
Any type of injury from a traffic crash can result in losses, some more extensive than others. If another party caused your accident, they should be liable for your medical bills and other losses, including lost income and pain and suffering. Don’t wait to learn about your rights from a Brandon car accident attorney at the law firm of Carman & Bevington, P.A.
The following are some common types of injuries from vehicle accidents.
Head injuries can vary, and they include skull fractures, brain injuries, and more. Minor impacts can cause relatively minor injuries such as bumps and bruises. On the other hand, severe crashes can result in concussions and brain tissue damage. These types of injuries are hard to diagnose and may only feel like a mild headache, though they are quite serious. For this reason, you should always get a full medical evaluation if you believe you sustained any type of head trauma.
Bones can break when the physical force applied to them is stronger than the actual bone. Some bone fractures won’t have any open wounds. Compound fractures, however, will penetrate through the skin and require emergency surgery. Bone fractures can cause extreme pain and can prevent use of that body part for weeks or months.
Back and Neck Injuries
Back injuries are common following serious car accidents. In some severe cases, these injuries can damage the spinal cord and result in body paralysis. Milder injuries can cause problems like herniated disks or sprains. Similar to head injuries, back injuries aren’t always noticeable, so make sure you receive thorough screening after your accident.
Whiplash is a common injury after the neck undergoes rapid back-and-forth movements. This type of injury is common when the driver is rear-ended. Some symptoms to look out for include neck stiffness, pain, and headaches. In many cases, people who have whiplash will start to feel better in a matter of weeks with physical therapy and other treatment. Unfortunately, some cases will cause pain that’ll persist for months or years.
Some injuries are not visible to others, which can cause particular struggles for victims. These include brain injuries, internal injuries, and others that do not have outward symptoms.
Also, invisible, psychological injuries can happen following a traumatic event, such as a major car accident. Post-traumatic stress disorder is common following car crashes. For those struggling with heightened feelings of anxiety or depression, professional help and psychotherapy are often needed to properly heal.
