Common Car Crash Injuries

Injuries sustained in a car crash can range from minor to catastrophic depending on the circumstances of the event. Some of the common injuries that can result from an auto collision include:

  • Cuts, scrapes, bruises, and broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Burns
  • Crush injuries and amputations
  • Damage to the lungs or other internal organs
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis

Obtaining prompt medical treatment after an incident will not only help ensure health and recovery, but it also strengthens a claim for compensation and aids the recovery process in the long run. In extreme circumstances, injuries can be fatal. A dedicated Kenmore attorney can help the family of someone who has been killed in a car crash file a wrongful death claim.

What to Do After a Wreck

After checking if anyone involved in the collision suffered injuries, and seeking appropriate medical care, individuals should contact the police to file an accident report. Even if the event is seemingly minor, a police report will document what happened while it is fresh in the drivers’ minds and can be used as evidence when proving liability. It is also a good idea to attempt to exchange contact information with the other driver.

Talking to witnesses and taking photographs of the scene are also important. However, injured parties should not admit fault or speak to the other driver’s attorney or insurance company without consulting with their own legal representation first.

How Can an Attorney Help After a Car Wreck?

It is crucial to have a trusted attorney to turn to after a Kenmore car wreck to help navigate the legal details. There are important steps to take to maximize the potential compensation amount of a claim. This includes finding, documenting, and preserving evidence that shows that the at-fault party is liable for the injured party’s damages. In some instances, attorneys may enlist the help of expert witnesses such as accident reconstructionists or physicians with this process.

Additionally, insurance companies will often try to get car accident victims to accept low settlement offers, preying on their lack of experience. Reviewing the circumstances of the event with a seasoned attorney gives individuals a better idea of the value of the case and provides them with guidance on what to say to avoid making costly mistakes.

Our team can also ensure injured parties receive adequate medical care even if they do not have health insurance, and provide compassion and support through a difficult time.
