Why Do You Need a Car Accident Lawyer?
Victims of motor vehicle accidents may sustain significant injuries. Broken bones, concussions, lacerations, and even loss of movement are examples of these. Victims of vehicle accidents who experience serious injuries may be entitled to compensation. Medical bills, missed wages, and other expenses may be covered by compensation.
Receiving this compensation, however, is impossible without adequate legal assistance. Insurance companies frequently contest who was at fault and frequently downplay the severity of your injuries in order to limit the amount you are reimbursed.
These corporations routinely underpay and question vehicle accident victims in order to avoid giving them fair compensation. Even if it is evident that you are the victim, they will ask who was responsible for the accident. They may doubt and downplay the seriousness of your injuries.
With the help of an expert automobile accident attorney, you will be able to identify whether insurance companies are using victim-blaming methods and fight for the reimbursement you deserve. A skilled lawyer will be able to:
- Conduct a thorough inquiry into the accident;
- Gather evidence, such as videos and witness statements;
- Create a compelling case to demonstrate that you were not at fault;
- Determine who is to blame;
- Make a deal with the insurance companies;
- Evaluate and present your injuries correctly to ensure you earn the greatest compensation from your accident claim.
The first step toward maximizing an automobile accident victim’s rehabilitation is to preserve all evidence related to the event. Evidence can take various forms, and all of them can help strengthen a victim’s case.
The following are some examples of typical types of evidence that should be kept in a vehicle accident case:
Preserving physical evidence may entail photographing the vehicle damage or securing the cars for investigation. While your car may need to be repaired following an accident, always take lots of photos with a time and date stamp on them and have one or more expert repair shops offer a thorough written estimate of the damage prior to repairs. You should take photographs of yourself as well as the car if you have evident bodily injuries from the collision.
The statements of neutral witnesses to an accident can go a long way toward showing carelessness, or culpability, in an accident. Although a police report may include witness identity and contact information, it is advised not to depend on it. It would most likely be very beneficial if you can talk with witnesses at the scene of the accident and obtain contact information. If not, it may be essential to dispatch an investigator to try to identify witnesses from neighboring establishments or households to confirm your account of events.
Weather and road conditions
Road and weather conditions can both play a part in an automobile accident. A badly planned or maintained highway, for example, might have contributed to the accident. Similarly, a faulty traffic light may have caused a collision. The weather might also play a problem if another driver fails to reduce his or her speed for unfavorable weather conditions. All of these potentially important situations must be recorded using photographs, official reports, or records.
Injuries Caused by Different Types of Car Accidents
Vehicle accident injuries are classified into two types: impact injuries and penetration injuries.
These are typically caused by a body component colliding with an interior vehicle surface, such as a steering wheel, dashboard, windshield, or headrest. Broken and crushed bones, wounded internal organs, and internal bleeding is all common outcomes of impact injuries. Whiplash and head trauma are two more types of impact injuries that can cause spinal cord injury, brain damage, and concussion. While seat belts and airbags help reduce the severity of many crash injuries, they cannot eliminate all of them. Airbags are useful in head-on and rear-end crashes, but not in side-impact incidents such as T-bones.
Cuts, lacerations, and punctures are examples of penetration injuries sustained by a victim in an automobile accident. Broken glass or shredded metal from a car’s frame can cause these types of penetrating injuries. They can also be caused by loose things in the car that become airborne projectiles during a collision. In the commotion and wreckage of an accident, seemingly harmless objects such as pens, mobile phones, coffee cups, glass bottles, and aluminum cans can inflict major puncture injuries.
What Types of Damages Can I Recover Following a Car Accident?
Our experienced attorneys can help you seek both economic and non-economic damages from the at-fault insurance provider.
Economic damages will account for all of the financial losses you have suffered as a result of your injury, from medical expenses to missed pay while you are out of work. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, may encompass any and all of your personal losses, ranging from emotional upset to physical discomfort.
