- Minor Car Crash Injuries Can Lead to Big Medical Costs
More than 140,000 Arizona car accidents occur on an annual basis, and when these situations occur they lead to more than 65,000 injuries. While some of these injuries are extremely serious, thousands of them are of a nature that people would describe them as minor. Unfortunately, many people who suffer from what they believe are minor injuries do not explore their legal rights and options with a Phoenix car accident lawyer until it’s too late and they have incurred enormous medical bills and suffered through excruciating pain. Below is a look at how seemingly minor injuries can lead to enormous medical bills and other costs.
Minor Injuries Resulting from Arizona Car Accidents
There are many different injuries that can result from Arizona car accidents, and examples of those that are common and that are thought of as minor include the following:
- Broken glass injuries – Injuries sustained because of glass that breaks or shatters during an Arizona car accident generally includes cuts and abrasions.
- Seat belt injuries – Many do not consider the fact that a seat belt can lead to minor injuries that include bruising and sprains of the joint areas.
- Whiplash – Whiplash is considered by some to be a minor injury because it cannot generally be seen on an X-ray test result and because many people simply think that it’s not a serious injury.
Any of the injuries listed above and many others can become serious problems both financially and medically for those who do not have them treated immediately. These problems that can develop include the potential for infections to develop from broken glass-caused cuts and abrasions, ongoing tendon problems caused by an initial seat belt injury and serious and never-ending neck and shoulder problems that result from the unnatural motions that lead to whiplash injuries. These problems can ultimately require extensive medical care and treatment and even surgery.
How An Attorney Can Help Get Compensation
Anyone who is involved in an Arizona car accident and who suffers what may seem like a minor injury should not simply assume that their problems will disappear. Instead, even if someone suffers a minor injury, he or she should seek medical attention and then seek the advice of a Arizona auto accident attorney who understands the legal process and how minor injuries can become major problems.

Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.

Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
