Know Your Rights:
When it comes to handling personal injury lawsuits following an automobile accident, it is important to understand your rights. You have good grounds for a personal injury claim or lawsuit if you are injured in a car accident that is not your fault. If another party is liable, that means that their negligent behavior caused the accident which resulted in your injury. It is important for you to understand that you have the right to file a police report, a right to contact the other driver’s insurance company, and a right to refuse to admit fault.
Understanding Your Injuries:
Feeling fine after an automobile accident does not mean that you are not injured or hurt. Sometimes, injuries take hours or even days to develop fully, so never admit in a police report that you are totally fine. Below are the most common injuries sustained by car accident victims.
- Whiplash (which can present as an injury to your muscles, tendons, and/or ligaments.)
- Head or traumatic brain injuries.
- Broken bones.
- Scrapes, cuts, and lacerations.
- Post-traumatic stress disorder.
Understanding what you are most likely to experience can help to expedite your medical care following a collision.
