I Was Injured In A Car Accident

No matter how safely we drive, we always run the risk of being involved in a car accident due to another driver’s poor driving. Through no fault of your own, a bad driver could ruin your day—and even your life. Red-light runners, drunk drivers, and distracted drivers cause preventable accidents to happen every day, often resulting in serious injuries or even fatal injuries. These negligent drivers can be held liable for the destruction they caused in civil court so that victims can get the compensation they deserve for their pain and suffering. If you have been hurt in a car accident, contact us for a free consultation.

After the accident happens

Being in a car crash can be a confusing experience, especially if you are hurt, leaving you unsure of where to turn to next. Here is what you need to do after a car accident:

  • Get medical help right away, even if you think your injuries are minor. Some injuries take time to become painful, but once they do, the pain can be excruciating (common with whiplash injuries).
  • Gather documentation related to you accident. This could include photos of injuries, contact information of accident witnesses, copies of medical bills from injury treatment, and copies of pay stubs showing wages lost as a result of missing work due to injuries.
  • Discuss your case with a knowledgeable attorney. An attorney who specializes in civil law can review your documentation and use it to begin to build a case for the courts.

Negligence and liability in traffic collisions

A driver whose negligence causes an accident can be held liable in court for the damages that resulted from the accident. For example, if a person receives a text message while driving and takes their eyes off the road to read the message and fails to notice that they are approaching a red light, they can be held accountable for the destruction that happens when they inevitably rear-end a stopped car and cause a domino-effect multi-vehicle collision. The court may demand that these negligent drivers pay money to the accident victims in the form of damages, and victims may be able to recover financial compensation for damages caused to their person (i.e., injuries) or property (i.e., wrecked car).
