Car Accident Injury Claims

The types of accidents involving cars are either rear-end, front end, side impact or T-bone, or rollover. The major cause of car accidents is driver distraction when the driver has his or her attention elsewhere, not focused on the task of safe driving. Texting while driving, using a cell phone or an electronic device, as well as eating, reading or talking with the passengers can contribute to car accidents. Driver fatigue, poor visibility, wet or icy slippery roads, tire blowout, or mechanical failure can also cause car crashes. Drunk drivers account for some of the more serious accidents with major injuries and deaths. Common injuries suffered in car accidents can include the following:

  • Severe whiplash
  • Broken or crushed bones, dislocations, amputations
  • Traumatic brain injury, internal organ damage
  • Spinal cord injuries, paraplegia, quadriplegia
  • Burns, coma or death

If a negligent or reckless driver caused a car accident, he or she may be liable to the victim for damages and monetary compensation for lost earnings when unable to work. The victim may be eligible for compensation of medical expenses and future medical treatment and damages for pain and suffering. It is important to have legal representation from an experienced car accident lawyer when dealing with insurance companies. Insurance adjusters can be intimidating and the insurance claim process can be complex with a settlement offer less than the worth of injuries.
