Types of Injuries Caused by Car Accidents
Car accident injuries come in all shapes and sizes. The type and severity of an auto accident injury depend on different things, such as:
- Whether the individual was wearing a seatbelt
- The overall health and well-being of the injured accident victim
- The type of impact
- The speed at which the accident occurred
Accidents that occur at high speeds often result in head injuries where the victim may hit their head on the wheel or dashboard because of the force of impact. Injuries from such force can result in a concussion, bleeding, or a fractured skull.
Among the most common injuries in car accidents are neck injuries, commonly referred to as whiplash. In many cases, an individual who suffers a whiplash may also have a more serious spinal cord injury where the impact of the collision results in a herniated disc in the cervical spine.
Seek Medical Attention Right Away
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, it is crucial to seek medical attention right away to avoid serious complications.
Many car accident victims fail to seek medical attention right away because of a lack of health insurance or other financial reasons and do not seek treatment until their condition worsens. However, it is important to document your symptoms from the point of the injury to protect your right to recovery.
Our firm is here to help you and your family every step of the way. If you are uncertain of the best course of action in your injury case, contact our Orange County car accident attorney to discuss your situation and how we can help protect your rights.
Single-Car Accident Cases
Single-vehicle accidents are those that involve just one car. This does not mean, however, that the driver is always at fault. In many cases, user error is the cause of a single-vehicle accident. If there is a vehicle defect, the injured party may be able to pursue compensation.
Our team knows how to investigate potential auto defect claims; we often work with accident reconstructionists, medical experts, and other specialists who can help us obtain a clear, comprehensive picture of what happened and, most importantly, who is liable.
Were You Involved in a Hit & Run?
Injured in a hit and run accident? This scenario can cause a lot of unknowns for the victim since the at-fault driver is no longer at the scene of the accident. Because the other driver’s insurance won’t be there to help you pay your claim, your own policy’s uninsured or underinsured coverage should kick in to cover your damages.
We can help you determine whether you are covered by uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage and what to do next to recover compensation.
Choose an Experienced Car Accident Lawyer to Protect You
If your car accident was the result of another person's negligent actions, you deserve to collect compensation for all of the consequences, both economic and non-economic. Our state uses a system of liability known as pure comparative fault, which means that even if you were partially responsible for the accident, you are still entitled to some level of compensation.
The degree of compensation you receive, however, will depend on the extent of your injuries and whether you will return to your state of health before the accident within weeks, months, or years. Your compensation will also be reduced by your at-fault percentage (if you are determined to have been partially to blame for the accident). Given that, it's important to have an attorney who understands how to maximize your recovery through aggressive negotiations or by seeking recovery in court.
