FOR ACCIDENT AND INJURY VICTIMS

All About Car Accident Injuries

Auto accidents are a leading cause of injury and death for both adults and children nationwide.

Injuries occur in every kind of situation — at high speeds, in stop-and-go traffic, even parking lots. Many injuries can take weeks or months to appear, which is why working alongside a dedicated and experienced attorney with decades of litigating auto accidents can make all the difference in the recovery.

The most disconcerting and painful fact? Most car accidents are 100 percent preventable.

‘I’m Hurt — What Do I Do?’

Don’t…

  1. Panic. Accidents are traumatic. Take a breath, and get yourself together. You can do this.
  2. Talk Too Freely. Be discreet. You can harm your case just by saying “I’m fine.”
  3. Talk To Your Neighbors. Insurance investigators will note any discrepancies.
  4. Leave The Scene. Stick around to talk with police and gather information.

Do…

  1. Collect Evidence. Photos of the scene, and of you and your injuries, will be valuable later.
  2. Collect Information. From the other driver and from eye-witnesses.
  3. Call Your Insurance Agent. This may be even more important than seeing a doctor.
  4. Get Help. Hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Maximum Compensation For These And Other Injuries

  • Amputation injuries: When a part of the body, such as a limb or digit, is lost during the accident itself or as a necessary surgical operation as a result of the injury.
  • Head and brain injuries: Sudden and severe impact to the skull resulting in concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are some of the most common injuries to the head, along with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
  • Back and spinal cord injuries: These injuries can include compression fractures of the spine, fractured vertebra, paraplegia, quadriplegia, neck injuries, cervical or lumbar herniations, disc injuries, nerve injuries or damage, nerve compression injuries, whiplash and more.
  • Burn injuries: Fires and vehicle explosions during and after a crash can easily result in severe, life-altering burns on a section or all over the body.
  • Broken bones: Fractured and broken bones, simple, complex, comminuted or avulsion fractures, including broken arms or hands, legs, ankles or feet, ribs, collar bones, are a common result of car crashes and other accidents.
  • Dog bite injuries: A vicious dog bite can not only cause physical harm, lacerations and other external injuries but also lifelong scars and potential emotional trauma.
  • Soft tissue injuries: These injuries often involve serious damage to the internal organs and structures of the body.
  • Abrasions and lacerations: These include air bag abrasions, serious lacerations from flying windshield glass, road rash from motorcycle and bicycle accidents, and more.

If you were injured, or someone you love was killed because of another driver’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. Choose an attorney who is experienced, aggressive and dedicated to working hard to get fair compensation for your injuries. Choose Attorney Scott J. Corwin of Los Angeles.

What causes most car accidents?

The most common factors in auto accidents relate to attention. They happen because:

  • Drivers are exceeding the speed limit.
  • Their attention is on something besides driving: using their cell phone, arguing with a passenger, looking for an address, eating a sandwich, changing stations.
  • They don’t obey stop signs or red lights.
  • They are driving under the influence, and your safety is not their concern.

Sometimes the party at fault isn’t another driver. It can be the city or municipality that failed to keep the road safe. Or it can be the manufacturer of a part that fails at a crucial moment.

Auto and Car Accidents By The Numbers
