Being involved in an auto collision is one of the most stressful events a person can endure. Even car crashes that occur at low speeds can have a devastating impact on your life. In these events, thousands of pounds of force are exerted on every part of your body. This can lead to significant physical injuries that require extensive medical care. These incidents can also result in substantial emotional trauma and harsh economic consequences.

If another driver was to blame for a crash, you can demand that they provide full compensation for your losses. However, you must establish their fault in the wreck as well as how the event has changed your life. A Depew car accident lawyer can help with this process. Our committed personal injury attorneys are ready to investigate the cause of a crash, determine how it has changed your life, and protect your legal rights every step of the way. Call Richmond Vona, LLC, to learn more.

Common Causes of Car Crashes

Car crashes are sadly common events in New York and across the United States. Something as simple as someone taking their eyes off the road for a second could lower their reaction time and lead to a collision. People hoping to collect compensation following an auto wreck injury must be able to point to a specific reason why another driver was to blame for that crash.

Many accidents are the product of simple carelessness. This may be a person’s distraction due to a phone conversation or their tiredness after a long day at work. Others result from violations of the rules of the road, such as speeding, failing to yield, texting and driving, and operating a vehicle while under the influence.

In every example, injured people must prove that another’s actions were the main cause of a crash and resulting injuries and losses. A Depew car wreck attorney is ready to obtain and preserve evidence such as police reports, eyewitness interviews, and camera footage to showcase how an accident occurred and who was at fault. In more severe circumstances, expert witnesses such as accident reconstructionists can be utilized, as well as black box recorder data from the vehicles.

What Compensation is Available After a Car Wreck?

The goal of any car accident case is to make an injured person whole again. This means providing compensation to account for a person’s financial losses connected to the incident. These losses can include present and future medical bills, including ER visits, surgery, prescription medications, medical devices, and follow-up and rehabilitative care. Economic losses also cover property damage and lost income from missing time at work or permanent disability.

Importantly, crashes can impact a person’s life in other ways. For example, they may be experiencing emotional traumas connected to the collision, such as PTSD, nightmares, anxiety, or depression. They may also have difficulty enjoying time with family and notice a loss of enjoyment of life. Our attorneys are ready to evaluate every way in which a Depew car wreck has changed a person’s past, present, and future. When we understand these facts, we will pursue a case for its full value.
