What Are the Most Common Injuries After a Car Accident?

Any auto accident has the potential to cause serious injuries. Your injuries will likely depend on the severity of your accident and what the at-fault driver did to cause the collision.
Below are some of the most common injuries victims experience after a car accident:

  •  Broken bones
  •  Cuts, bruises, and contusions
  •  Whiplash
  •  Spinal cord injuries
  •  Loss of limbs
  •  Burns and scars
  •  Paralysis
  •  Knee damage
  •  Neck injuries
  •  Back injuries

  •  Permanent disability

These injuries can impact victims for the rest of their lives, amounting to thousands of dollars in medical expenses and other bills. Our team will help you recover compensation for your current expenses plus future medical expenses so you aren’t stuck paying for your healthcare out of pocket.

A personal injury claim can cover all kinds of medical bills, including long-term hospital stays, emergency care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and more.

What Kind of Damages Can Victims Seek?

After an accident, victims can seek compensation for any expenses they accrued because of the accident. You must provide evidence of these damages and show proof of financial loss to receive compensation. While your specific damages will depend on your injuries and the nature of your accident, there are some common damages that many victims claim.

The most common damages you can seek as a car accident victim include:

  •  Lost wages
  •  Loss of earning capacity
  •  Medical bills, present and future
  •  Pain and suffering
  •  Mental anguish
  •  Emotional distress
  •  Loss of consortium
  •  Punitive damages
  •  Wrongful death
    Surviving family members of a deceased individual can pursue wrongful death claims. If your loved one passes away due to injuries from a car accident, you can seek compensation for things like loss of companionship, pain and suffering, and loss of earning capacity. In most cases, the surviving spouse and any children can receive compensation in a car accident case for wrongful death.

What Can a Car Accident Lawyer Do for Me?

While you don’t technically need a car accident lawyer on your side to pursue most Florida car accident cases, working with our team of auto accident attorneys greatly increases your chances of receiving compensation. Our attorneys will work with you every step of the way, exploring all legal avenues to get you the payout you deserve.
As your personal injury attorney, a member of our team will do the following:

Investigate the Accident Scene

Photos, videos, witness statements, and police reports are all helpful when proving the acts of a negligent driver. Our team will investigate the accident, gathering evidence to support your claim.

File Your Claim

Filing car accident claims with an insurance company can be confusing, especially when trying to prove the negligence of the at-fault driver. Our team will work with you to submit a claim with your own insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company.

Negotiate with Insurance Adjusters

Insurance adjusters are trained to give individuals the lowest payout possible. Our team will call your insurance company and negotiate with the insurance agents to get you the compensation you deserve. If the insurance company refuses to cooperate, we will then escalate your car accident case.

File a Lawsuit in Court

If an insurance company is not willing to give you the fair compensation you need, our team will then move on to filing a lawsuit on your behalf. In a car accident lawsuit, you can seek damages from the other driver and prove negligence to have your medical bills and other expenses paid for.

Should I Consult a Car Accident Attorney?

Auto accident victims often experience devastating injuries with life-long symptoms. If you have been in a car accident, you deserve to focus on your rest and recovery, not gathering evidence and proving negligence to get the payment you deserve. By working with our team of car accident lawyers, you can seek compensation while recovering from your injuries.
