Proving Negligence in an Auto Accident
To achieve a successful auto accident claim, you will need to prove elements of negligence, which include:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care;
- The defendant did not observe the duty of care;
- The defendant’s reckless actions ultimately led to your accident; and
- The accident played a significant factor in the damages you sustained
Furthermore, some accidents can also be caused by additional parties. For instance, even if a driver was speeding, a city agency may be partially blamed for designing and building the dangerous road where the accident took place. When it comes to filing a claim against a government agency, however, certain restrictions may apply. One of these restrictions is a strict statute of limitations, which allows a victim only six (6) months from the date of the injury to file a claim.
Devastating Injuries Attributed to Car Accidents
Depending on the severity of the auto accident, there are a plethora of injuries that can result in the aftermath of a car accident. A few of the most devastating injuries involve the following:
- Whiplash injuries, that can lead to nerve damage and long-term pain
- Spinal cord injuries, which usually result in paraplegia or even quadriplegia
- Traumatic brain injuries, which can have a wide-variety of consequences, such as cognitive issues and memory loss
- Broken bones
- Facial disfigurement
- Deep cuts and lacerations
It is important to understand that even when a car accident is seemingly minor, the injuries suffered in the accident may not become apparent straightaway. Far too many accident victims refuse medical attention believing they have not suffered any injuries. In reality, some of the most catastrophic injuries will surface several days or even weeks later. Because of this, it is widely recommended that you seek medical attention shortly after suffering an automobile accident. In addition to treating the injuries, obtaining medical attention will establish a medical record, which is one of the most important elements needed to obtain financial compensation.
