Detailed Case Investigation

The strength of your car accident injury case will be up to your attorney's ability to collect and present evidence that will detail the other party's negligent driving and, therefore, their responsibility for the injuries and damages you sustained. 

Negligence refers to an individual or entity’s failure to meet the standard level of acceptable behavior, which includes paying proper attention while operating a motor vehicle, ensuring the safety of others.

 

Typical Causes of Automobile Accidents

In recent years, with an increase in the use of technology, the number of distracted drivers is on the rise. Spotting and proving distracted driving is the key to winning your car accident injury case. Look out for the following from the negligent party.

Was the driver:

  • Eating or drinking while drivingcar-accident-lawyer
  • Using the car’s radio
  • Attempting to program a GPS
  • Talking on the phone
  • Texting while driving
  • Checking other digital devices
  • Reading
  • Shaving or putting on makeup

 

Most Common Types of Injuries Seen in Road Traffic Collisions

If you are injured in a traffic collision and believe a distracted driver caused it, our injury attorneys can start an investigation into the crash to identify the signs of negligent behavior. Also, you can help by following these tips on what to do after a car accident.

Common Types of Car Accident Injuries: 

  1. Spine, Back, and Neck Injuries (including Whiplash): These are the most frequent injuries seen in car wrecks. With these injuries come strained ligaments, muscles, and tendons and may fall into the hard-to-prove "soft tissue injury" category. Severe spinal cord injuries may result in paralysis.
  2. Lacerations (Cuts): These injuries may occur when glass is shattered, or the vehicle's sheet metal is torn. Deep or serious cuts may result in loss of blood and cause the driver to go into shock. Scarring can also be an issue, so a patient may need to see a plastic surgeon to repair any damage.
  3. Broken Bones: Very common in vehicle accidents. Surgery may be necessary to repair the damage, and the injured person may need to go through months or weeks of physical rehabilitation.
  4. Concussion or Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): These are injuries to the brain resulting from a blow to the head, which causes the brain to swell. A minor concussion may be treated with bed rest and proper pain medication. A traumatic brain injury may require surgery, and in worse cases, result in permanent loss of function or death. Please keep in mind that concussion symptoms or TBI do not always appear right away. It may take an hour or more for the swelling in the brain to produce symptoms.
  5. Burn Injuries: Severe burns can be very serious, and may put the victim at risk of infection. Burns can cause disfigurement, impacting the quality of life of the injured person.
  6. Internal Injuries: Anything internal can be life-threatening and not immediately evident. In a serious accident, it is always best to be checked out by an emergency room team. 

 

Evaluating Damages 

auto-accident-helpTo determine the compensation you deserve, your attorney will need detailed information regarding your injuries and accident-related expenses, such as pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, towing services, rental cars, and property damages.

One of the most damaging factors to any personal injury claim is what is known as a "gap in treatment." This happens if an individual chooses to wait to seek medical treatment or fails to show for doctor appointments.

Seeking a physician's care immediately after your accident is crucial, even if you feel your injuries are minor. Waiting weeks or even days can greatly impact the result of your claim. Without detailed medical records and a consistent treatment history, there will be little or no evidence supporting and proving your injuries.

Filing A Car Accident Compensation Claim 

Your car accident injury lawyer will review the information obtained during the investigation process to file a lawsuit. Your attorney will include in your claim:when-to-get-an-attorney-for-a-car-accident

  • Injuries
  • Damages
  • Negligent Behavior 
  • Request Compensation

Your attorney will use your claim as leverage for a reasonable settlement for your losses. It is up to your attorney to negotiate on your behalf for a settlement while preparing your case for trial if necessary.

Your case will only proceed to trial if negotiations are unsuccessful. It will then be up to the judge or jury to determine what amount of compensation you should receive.  

If you are a victim of a motor vehicle accident, it is important to keep in mind that you should only speak with and disclose information to your auto accident attorney.

Making statements or comments to the wrong party could potentially harm your pursuit for compensation regarding your personal injury lawsuit.

Frequently Asked Legal Questions About Car Accidents

WHAT WILL I BE COMPENSATED FOR AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT?

If you were involved in a no-fault auto accident, you may receive the following compensation:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Property damage
  • Medical Expenses
  • Lost Wages

WHAT DO I DO IF AN INSURANCE COMPANY CONTACTS ME?

Do nothing. If an insurance company reaches out to you, do not say anything related to your case.

They will most likely contact you to make a statement about your accident. Depending on what you say, this can be used against you to reduce the amount of your settlement.

Although you may have to speak with the insurance company eventually, you should always discuss your options with an experienced accident attorney first. They will explain what you can and cannot say to protect the value of your case.

HOW MUCH DOES A CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY COST?

If you were involved in an auto accident, the type of lawyer you choose to represent you is a personal injury attorney.

A personal injury attorney's concentration is helping accident victims. If you were in an accident caused by someone else's negligent actions, a personal injury lawyer gets you the financial compensation you deserve.

Thankfully, these attorneys work on contingency. This means that you do not pay any straightforward legal fees, and your lawyer only collects a small percentage fee that comes out of your final settlement.

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY CAR ACCIDENT SETTLEMENT?

The duration of time that it takes to resolve a lawsuit depends on many different circumstances.

First, you should contact an attorney soon after your accident so they can start their investigation.

Second, the extent of the injuries and the seriousness of the accident can take longer. Insurance companies want the injured party to complete their treatment so that all medical expenses are valued before they settle.

Finally, it depends on the settlement size and when you can get a court date (if you cannot settle in mediation). If you are prepared to accept a smaller settlement, then your lawyer can wrap up your case in a few months. If you are going after a greater settlement, the process is lengthier and could end up going to trial.
