What are some of the most serious injuries associated with car accidents?
Though a variety of other injuries may occur after a car accident, some of the most serious injuries include traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) typically require extensive treatment, therapy and rehabilitation. Furthermore, many victims may suffer from the effects of traumatic brain injuries for the rest of their lives. Additionally, spinal cord injuries require significant medical attention as well and can cost victims to lose some or all of their mobility. In both situations, victims may be unable to perform their previous jobs and may require long-term care.
I was involved in a car accident but do not feel any pain. Do I still need medical attention?
Yes – always seek medical attention after a car accident. Many victims do not immediately feel any pain. Thus, they do not seek medical examination now only to experience severe issues later. Medical professionals can assess your condition and then treat you before minor pains turn into significant injuries.
I may have been partly responsible for my car accident. What should I do?
Understand that after an accident, you may not be in the best position to determine whether you were at fault or not. Many drivers cannot properly evaluate the situation as a crash is happening. They may not then be aware of any negligent behavior by the other driver. You should not confess to any wrongdoing before allowing investigators to determine the cause of the accident. They may determine the accident was the fault of the other driver or even a mechanical failure of one of the vehicles in the accident.
How can I determine who is at fault in a car accident?
Contact our Nashville car accident attorney. He can determine what factors may have played a role in the collision. It may be necessary to do an accident reconstruction.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you must first find a medical professional to examine you and treat any medical issues. When speaking with police, the other driver or anyone else, speak only about the facts, and do not admit fault. If possible, take pictures and get the contact information of any other drivers and witnesses. Finally, contact Nashville car accident lawyer Stanley Davis for a free consultation about your accident.
What damages may I receive from a car accident lawsuit?
Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for medication costs, medical bills, lost wages due to injury as well as other damages, such as pain and suffering.
