If you or anyone else involved in the accident is injured, seek immediate medical attention. Even if you feel fine, it's still recommended to get checked out as some injuries may not manifest immediately.

Common injuries from car accidents

No matter what the cause of your car accident, it can cause serious and sometimes devastating injuries. These injuries can resort in pain and suffering. And they can cause you to lose a ton of your time running around to appointments. Moreover, not knowing how you’re going to pay your bills adds additional stress.

Here are some of the most common injuries caused by car accidents. 

  • Neck and back injuries: The sudden acceleration and deceleration during a car accident can often cause a person’s neck and back to move unnaturally. This can lead to painful injuries like sprains, herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, and many other related injuries. This often leads patients to have chronic pain, mobility limitations, and other types of repercussions that can severely affect their lives.
  • Brain injuries: Car accidents can cause concussions or other, more severe brain injuries. These injuries can be devastating, causing symptoms like loss of consciousness, memory problems, or even personality changes.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries are almost always extremely serious. These injuries can lead to long-term or permanent disability. And recovery is often a long and difficult process.
  • Whiplash: The back-and-forth movement of a car crash can often cause whiplash. This is a category of neck and upper spinal injuries. The effects of whiplash can include muscle strain, headaches, and dizziness.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Automobile accidents frequently cause strains, sprains, and tears in soft tissues like muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These injuries can cause pain and swelling and limit mobility.
  • Burns: Burns can cause pain, scarring, and disfigurement. More severe burns can be excruciating.
  • Broken Bones: The physical forces involved in a car crash can lead to fractures and broken bones.
  • Arm Injuries: Car crashes can cause damage to the bones, joints, and nerves of the hands, arms, and shoulders. This can lead to problems with grip and fine motor control.
  • Leg Injuries: Similar to arm injuries, car crashes can cause injuries to the legs that limit the ability to walk and move around.
  • Shoulder Injuries: Car crashes can cause shoulder dislocation, rotator cuff tears, and other shoulder injuries. These types of injuries can limit your ability to function. Additionally, shoulder injuries often require painful physical therapy.
  • Amputation: Some car crashes can lead to amputated limbs, which can cause severe emotional and physical pain and require a long and difficult adaptation process.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Every car accident is unique, but there are some common patterns that emerge. Dangerous situations that can lead to car accidents include:

  • Distracted driving tops the list of dangerous driving behaviors. Examples include texting, talking on the phone, or adjusting the radio.
  • Speeding in excess of the speed limit can limit reaction times. Apart from increasing the likelihood of an accident, speeding can lead to greater severity in a crash.
  • Driving under the influence affects reaction time and the decision-making process, making driving extremely dangerous.
  • Reckless driving behaviors like tailgating, running red lights, or weaving in between lanes can increase risks for everyone on the road.
  • Inclement weather, like rain or snow, can limit visibility and cause your car to lose traction.

How is Liability Determined in a Car Accident Lawsuit?

It can be difficult to tell who is at fault in a car accident lawsuit. An attorney experienced in personal injury law for auto accidents would be a critical ally for determining liability and proving it for your claim. Responsibility  for a car accident can involve considering the following factors:

  • Did anyone break any traffic laws?
  • Did any driver breach their duty of care by driving recklessly?
  • Was any driver’s vehicle in an unsafe condition to drive?

Types of Evidence Commonly Used in Car Accident Cases

Evidence is essential when it comes to preparing a strong case. Specifically, it can be tricky to find useful evidence for car accident cases, which is another reason that hiring a car accident attorney will benefit your case. Some of the most common types of evidence considered in car accidents include:

  • Medical records. The observations of medical personnel and records of your treatment can testify to the severity of your injuries, how you most likely received them, and the costs of your treatment.
  • Police reports. These often include detailed evidence of what happened.
  • Eyewitness accounts. People who witnessed the accident or the aftermath can corroborate your side of the story.
  • Expert testimony. Experts like accident re-constructionists can provide a clearer picture of what took place. By constructing the sequence of your car accident and  communicating it clearly, re-constructionists help everyone understand complicated evidence.
  • Photos and videos. Pictures or videos of the scene of the accident or the automobiles involved can help tell a story.

TYPES OF COMPENSATION YOU CAN RECOVER AFTER A CAR ACCIDENT

Victims of car accidents can suffer significant financial hardship on top of the physical and emotional pain. Fortunately, you can seek compensation for various car accident damages through a personal injury claim. Here’s a breakdown of what you might be owed:

  • Medical expenses: This includes past, present, and future medical bills associated with your injuries, including doctor visits, hospital stays, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and any future medical needs arising from the auto accident.
  • Lost wages: If your injuries prevent you from working, you can recover compensation for lost wages. This includes salary, bonuses, commissions, and any other forms of income you miss due to your injuries.
  • Loss of earning capacity: In severe injury cases, your ability to earn a living in the future might be impacted. Compensation can be recovered for this loss of future earning potential, often in one large payment.
  • Pain and suffering: This compensates you for the physical and emotional pain caused by the accident. This includes physical discomfort, emotional distress, scarring, and any mental health issues stemming from the car accident.
  • Property damage: You can recover the cost of repairing or replacing your vehicle or any other property damaged in the motor vehicle accident.
  • Loss of consortium: If you’re married and your spouse’s injuries significantly impact your marital relationship, you may be able to recover compensation for this loss.
  • Wrongful death: If a loved one dies in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to recover damages such as funeral expenses, lost income of the deceased, and loss of companionship.

Our team of experienced attorneys can evaluate your case and help you determine the level of compensation to seek.

THE CAR ACCIDENT CLAIMS PROCESS

Dealing with the legal system can seem daunting, but our skilled team at Werner, Hoffman, Greig & Garcia will guide you through every step. Here’s a general overview of what to expect:

  • Initial consultation: You can contact us for a free consultation to discuss your case. We will review the details of your accident, assess your injuries, and explain your legal options.
  • Investigation: We will gather evidence to support your claim, including police reports, medical records, witness testimonies, and accident scene photos.
  • Negotiation: Insurance companies are often reluctant to pay out what they owe, and may try to get away with a lowball settlement offer. We will handle communication with the at-fault party’s insurance company and negotiate a fair settlement that reflects the full extent of your damages.
  • Litigation: If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, we will prepare your case for court and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Remember, it’s crucial to act quickly after a car accident. Evidence can disappear over time, and Florida has a statute of limitations that restricts the timeframe to file a personal injury lawsuit.
