COMMON INJURIES IN SACRAMENTO TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS
Posted on Thursday, July 2nd, 2020 at 5:31 am
Traffic accidents continue to be one of the most common causes of wrongful death and personal injury. Negligent and careless drivers cause accidents that change the lives of victims forever. Those drivers can and should be held liable for the common injuries, damages and losses they cause. Our Sacramento personal injury lawyers fight for the rights of accident victims to receive fair compensation for their damages after a car wreck.
Common Injuries Sustained in Traffic Accidents
A traffic accident can result in debilitating and life-threatening injuries. The type and severity of injury vary by accident. Some auto accidents have a higher risk for fatalities and catastrophic injuries, such as crashes involving commercial trucks, pedestrians, head-on collisions, and bicyclists. However, even a low-speed impact can cause serious injuries. The type of vehicle and the victim’s overall health can impact the severity of injuries in a car crash.
Common injuries from traffic accidents that our lawyers handle routinely include, but are not limited to:
- Skull Fractures
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Coup Contrecoup Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Back and Neck Injuries
- Fractures and Broken Bones
- Seat Belt Injuries
- Airbag Injuries
- Internal Bleeding
- Lung and Organ Damage
- Chest Injuries
- Closed Head Injuries
- Penetrating Head Injuries
- Burns, Scarring, and Disfigurement
Our lawyers work with your doctors to document the severity of your injuries and potential future damages. If you sustain a disability or permanent impairment, you might be entitled to additional compensation for future damages.
Damages for Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries
The damages for accident claims vary. Some of the factors that could affect the value of your injury claim include:
- The type of your injuries;
- The severity of injuries;
- Whether you are partially to blame for the collision;
- The availability of insurance coverage;
- Your total financial losses;
- Whether you sustained a disability or impairment;
- The duration of your recovery;
- How much time you miss from work; and,
- Whether you hire an experienced car accident lawyer to handle your case.
Another factor in the value of your personal injury claim is your actions following the crash. Did you admit fault at the accident scene? Did you delay medical care? Have you posted information on social media? Did you provide a statement to the insurance provider? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you could have harmed your chances of success.
