The Five Most Common Injuries Our Cherry Hill Car Accident Attorneys Handle
Injuries sustained in a car accident can range from minor to catastrophic. Every accident will be different, and the extent of the injuries will also differ from person to person.
Whiplash and Back Trauma
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries in a car accident. The violent motion of the impact can cause the neck to snap back and forth, which leads to whiplash. Even if you are secured firmly in your seat by the seat belt, whiplash can occur.
Whiplash and back trauma can lead to many different problems for the injury victim. In addition to the soreness of the neck and back from the whiplash, injury victims can experience intense headaches, tingling sensations in their limbs, and random muscle spasms. Without proper care and treatment, these side effects can last for an extended period of time.
Brain Injuries Including Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
It does not take a lot of impact to the head to cause an injury to the brain. Even the jerking motion of the impact can be enough to shake the brain within the skull and cause an injury. Brain injuries can range from a mild concussion to a traumatic brain injury.
All brain injuries are serious and require immediate care. Severe brain injuries may require extensive care over a long period of time.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries are very common in all car accidents. These are generally classified as sprains, strains, torn ligaments or muscles.
These types of injuries do not have visible cuts or involve broken bones. They can involve visible bruising and swelling.
The pain from these injuries can last a long time and, in some cases such as torn muscles and ligaments, may require surgery to correct.
Lacerations and Broken Bones
The impact of a car accident can cause lacerations and broken bones in any area of the body. Shattering glass can lead to cuts on the hands and face.
The impact of the other vehicle can turn the body in ways that cause harm to the bones.
Hairline fractures to the bones can cause significant pain and suffering. However, they are not always detectable at first. The chaos from the accident and the amount of adrenaline pumping through your body at this time can cause you not to notice the pain.
Even if you believe you have not broken any bones, you should be examined for fractures by a medical professional as soon as possible after the accident. You’ll also want to have a medical report for your Cherry Hill car accident lawyer to use when fighting for your compensation.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
Although your spine is designed to be the strongest bone system in your body, the amount of bones and soft connective tissue in your spine also makes it one of the easiest parts of your body to be harmed.
Impact during a car accident can cause harm to the structure of your spine, and that injury can also impact your spinal cord.
Your spinal cord protects the central nervous system, and damage to the spinal cord can have lifelong consequences. Even if you believe that your spine has not been injured in the accident, make sure to have a complete exam by a medical professional to make sure that your spine and spinal cord are okay.
Other common injuries that occur in a car accident can include trauma to internal organs, internal bleeding, and emotional trauma from the event.
Types of Compensation Available to Cherry Hill Car Accident Victims
During your FREE CONSULTATION, your Cherry Hill car accident lawyer will discuss the different types of compensation available to you based on the facts of your case.
Rosengard Law Group may seek one or more of the following types of compensation:
Medical Costs – Present and Future
Medical care for your injury will be part of your compensation package. This includes your current medical care costs and any costs that you may need in the future.
We will also include any out-of-pocket medical costs you have had for supplies that you needed to purchase per your doctor.
Medical care compensation also includes travel to and from your doctor or therapist.
Lost Wages and Benefits
All the wages that you lost because you could not go to work while you were recovering from your injury will be covered in your settlement.
We may also seek compensation for lost employer contributions to your benefits, such as health care and retirement benefits.
If you receive profit sharing based on attendance, your attorney may also seek this loss as part of your wage benefits.
Future Earning Capacity
Some injuries lead to reduced capacities or disabilities. If your injury causes you to be unable to return to work or makes you return at lesser hours or in a lesser paying job because of your abilities, your attorney is going to seek lost earning capacity.
This compensation only applies to a case if your ability to earn a living is impacted by your injury. Your Cherry Hill car accident attorney will discuss this with you during your consultations.
Cost of Services
Injuries can prevent you from doing your everyday work around your home. When you have to pay to have these services completed, you are entitled to compensation for the expense. This may include housework, yard work, auto repairs, home repairs, elderly care, childcare, or dog walking. If you did this prior to your accident and now have had to pay for these services, speak with your attorney.
Additionally, if you have had to make modifications to your home or vehicle to accommodate your injury, you are entitled to receive compensation for the cost of these services.
Loss of Consortium
If your injury has impacted the relationship you have with your spouse, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of consortium. Your attorney may also file a separate case on behalf of your spouse for this same type of compensation.
Pain and Suffering and Mental Anguish
Pain and suffering and mental anguish are non-economic forms of compensation. Your attorney will calculate this type of compensation using information from the medical care professionals treating your injury and from you.
The attorney will make sure that the compensation you receive is justified for the injuries and suffering you have endured.
You may be entitled to additional forms of compensation based on your case. During your FREE CASE EVALUATION, your attorney will discuss with you all the option that you have for compensation.
Understanding Comparative Negligence
The State of New Jersey has a law known as Comparative Negligence. This law dictates that fault must be assigned in an accident. Under this law, both parties can assume some of the responsibility of the accident. This law also states that if a person is found 50 percent or more responsible for an accident, they cannot seek compensation for their injuries.
Insurance companies have taken this law and used it to their advantage. For example, if a person is found to be 10 percent responsible for the accident that they were injured in, the insurer believes that they have the right to reduce the compensation package by 10 percent.
The comparative negligence law is one of the reasons it is so important to have a Cherry Hill car accident lawyer represent your case.
Too often, the police report assigns responsibility for an accident incorrectly. After all, the police were not actually there at the time of the accident and are using their limited time to fill out the report.
Your attorney can call in a professional reconstruction service that will recreate the car accident and determine fault based on the evidence of the case. This can help establish the true cause and the fault of all parties involved.
