The Most Common Injuries Suffered by Car Accident Victims 

Car accident victims often do not have time to brace for the force of impact they experience during a car accident. Unfortunately, many car accident victims suffer serious bodily injury. The following are some of the most common types of injuries that occur during car accidents: 

  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries 
  • Bone fractures 
  • Neck injuries 
  • Contusions 
  • Amputations 
  • Lacerations 

Although this is not a comprehensive list of the types of injuries a person may suffer during a car accident, it is a list of the injuries that happen most often due to car accidents. All accident victims should seek medical attention immediately after an accident. It does not matter if you think your injuries are minor. Some injuries may not produce noticeable symptoms until weeks or months after the date of the incident.

The Benefits of Retaining a Car Accident Lawyer 

By retaining a car accident lawyer you will be able to take advantage of attorney-client privilege and attorney-client confidentiality. These principles protect the communications you have with your attorney. A skilled personal injury lawyer can protect important information that is privileged. If you do not have legal counsel then defense attorneys may take advantage of your inexperience with civil litigation. 

Having legal counsel also enables you to have an advocate represent your interests during settlement negotiation, mediation, and arbitration. These are forms of alternative dispute resolution, and it is important to have a lawyer on your side during these proceedings. 

For example, a lawyer may object during a deposition because the other attorney is trying to obtain privileged information. Essentially, an attorney will protect your interests throughout the course of the litigation. 

The Types of Damages You May Claim In a Car Accident Case 

Accident victims typically claim general damages and special damages. General damages are less quantifiable losses such as emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. Special damages are more quantifiable losses and include lost earnings and medical bills. 

Punitive damages are available only in cases involving defendants who commit willful, wanton, or malicious conduct. These damages are designed to punish the defendant and to deter the defendant from committing the same conduct in the future.
