Experienced Counsel Is A Necessity

Philip L. Arnel is an experienced personal injury attorney in Massachusetts. He understands that significant visible property damage is not necessary for serious injuries to have resulted from the car accident. However, when there is little external damage to the vehicle, it can be difficult to obtain fair compensation from the insurance company. The insurance representatives may belittle the claim or offer far less compensation than what would cover the medical expenses and other damages. Through his experience and relentless perseverance, attorney Arnel seeks the full amount of compensation to which his clients are entitled.

Mr. Arnel handles all types of personal injury cases arising from low-impact or rear-end collisions, such as:

  • Wrist injuries: When a driver sees an imminent crash in the rearview mirror, it is common to brace against the steering wheel. However, when the vehicle is struck from behind, even at low speeds, the force of the accident can cause the driver to suffer wrist injuries.
  • Knee injuries: Motorists and passengers who are involved in rear-end collisions may be thrust into the dashboard or into the seat in front of them, sustaining broken kneecaps and other knee injuries.
  • Neck injuries: Even low-impact accidents can seriously jar the necks of the people inside the vehicle. The force of the rear-end car accident causes the neck to be jolted forward and backward again — which can cause soft-tissue injuries, such as whiplash.

In many cases, even when there are no broken bones, people suffering from these injuries will endure tenderness and pain for extended periods of time. The pain may require special medical treatment, costly pain medication and time away from work. As an experienced personal injury lawyer, Philip Arnel helps clients recover the compensation they need to alleviate the financial burdens associated with their injuries.
