Rhode Island and Massachusetts Auto Accident Arm and Leg Injury Attorney
Car crashes are so frightening because so much can go wrong in such a short span of time. They happen with little to no warning, rocking their victims in the blink of an eye.
Most car crashes cause some degree of injury, ranging from minor pain to catastrophic damages or even death. On this page, we will focus specifically on arm and leg injuries, which rank among the most common car crash damages in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Because they do not house our vital organs, arms and legs are sometimes dismissed as less serious sites for injury. The truth, though, is that our limbs are linked to everything else in our bodies, and damage to any arm or leg can have a direct impact on other body systems and our whole-body health.
There are economic and quality-of-life impacts too. We use our arms and legs in our daily lives. They help us do the things we need to stay alive — eat, move about, connect with others, and make a living. Impairment of the limbs can directly affect all of those important capacities. Moreover, arm and leg injuries can cause substantial pain, anguish, and emotional distress.
That’s why it’s so important that anyone suffering with arm and leg injuries from a motor vehicle accident be able to recover compensation that covers the full value of their many losses.

Permanent Disability Caused by Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the biggest concerns relating to arm and leg injuries from a motor vehicle accident is loss of use.
Sadly, car crash victims often face a long road toward recovery, and some never completely heal. Accordingly, they may endure a lifetime of sluggish and painful movements. Some are forced into a wheelchair. Their social lives and emotional health are affected as a result. Many have to change careers, and some are completely unable to work.
