Car accidents are terrifying, even if you and your passengers are not severely injured. Even more terrifying is the fact that these accidents can happen at any time, even when you are simply trying to get to work.
Why Do You Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
A personal injury attorney helps you receive the full compensation you deserve after you are in an accident. You may be in pain after your accident, which means you cannot focus as much time, effort, and energy on your case as you would like. This is where a personal injury attorney comes in.
What Injuries Can You Sue For?
Some types of car crashes are much more common than others. While your car is equipped with safety features like seat belts and airbags, you could still face injuries that leave you with lost wages and high hospital bills. You may be able to sue for injuries that stem from concussions, brain trauma, broken bones, spinal injuries, and more. After all, these injuries can lead to serious side effects like sleep problems, memory loss, and lack of concentration.
You can sue for medical expenses, pain and suffering, mental anguish, lost wages, and property damage.
Can You Sue the Vehicle Manufacturer?
Yes, in many cases it is a good idea to sue the manufacturer of a vehicle involved in your car accident. You can also split the costs between two individuals or organizations. For example, you may sue your vehicle's manufacturer in addition to the city or another driver depending on the situation.
When Should You Take Action?
It is a good idea to take action now. Injuries grow more expensive with time, and they may become more difficult to heal from without adequate care and attention. You should also make sure that you take action quickly to establish fault in the accident. Even if you are in a single-vehicle accident, somebody or something else may be at fault for your injuries.
Remember that simply because you take action now does not necessarily mean your case will go to court. You may settle before you even get to court. Your insurance company (or the at-fault party's insurance company) may offer you a fair amount. Of course, you should always consult with your attorney before accepting any amount of money.
