A variety of injuries can arise from involvement in an auto accident including but not limited to:
- Back Injuries - Among the most frequently reported injuries in auto accidents, back injuries can range from mild sprains and bruises to fractured vertebrae and spinal cord damage. Medical treatment for back injuries can be costly, in some cases costing well over $100,000.
- Whiplash Neck Injuries - While whiplash is most commonly associated with rear-end collisions, it can result from any type of auto accident in which the force of impact causes the victim's head to be whipped around. Whiplash can frequently lead to sprained muscles and tendons, pain in the neck and shoulder region, blurred vision, and nausea.
- Head Injury - One of the most serious types of auto accident injuries, head trauma often result in cuts and bruises, concussions, skull fractures, blood clots, or even death. This type of injury is extremely serious and victims should seek immediate medical attention, as delaying treatment can be life-threatening.
- Knee Injury - Though less common than the aforementioned injuries, knee injuries can be serious, often resulting in damage of the ligament or kneecap.
Regardless of the type of injury, most auto accident claims will require the following:
- Medical Records - Medical records linking the victim's injury to their auto accident are imperative and should include a doctor's note, as well as documentation of any treatment or diagnosis that occurred.
- Photographs - Photographs taken at the scene of the accident can be incredibly beneficial to any case. Look for car, sign, and even foliage damage in the surrounding area, and take pictures of skid marks and any other incriminating evidence such as possession of alcohol in or around the other driver's car.
- Witness Statements - Reach out to anyone who may have seen the accident unfold. Witnesses can provide powerful testimony against a driver at fault by being third-party onlookers with no personal interest in the case.
- A Police Report - Police reports are often the best evidence to back up a victim's claims. Objective and unbiased, a police officer will typically speak to both parties and look for any evidence pointing towards the accidents culprit.
