Are You a Car Accident Victim?

Even if you practice safe driving habits, you may still end up in an accident, even worse, injured. You cannot control what other drivers do behind the wheel. Actions drivers perform that often lead to car accidents include:

  • Drivers under the influence of illegal drugs, alcohol or prescription medications
  • Distracted drivers including those using cell phones behind the wheel
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals, such as running a red light or a stop sign
  • Speeding or reckless driving, and more

Perhaps, you weren’t involved in an accident, but a family member was injured – such as a teen driver in your household – and you need to know their legal rights. In any case, the aftermath after the accident occurred when involving an injury can be a challenge to deal with as can insurance companies. Damages likely incurred, perhaps misdemeanor charges have been filed against the person who caused the accident, a traffic ticket may have been issued or, maybe someone was injured.

Types of Car Accident Injuries

Injuries from a car crash can be minor to severe. Common injuries include whiplash, traumatic brain injury, bruising, joint or limb pain and more. Severe injuries may result in a lengthy hospital stay, costly medical bills, physical therapy, and other sacrifices.

In addition to physical hurdles, Indiana car accident victims may deal with emotional and psychological trauma following the event. This trauma can last weeks, months or years – and seriously impact the quality of life. In the worst cases, car accidents can result in loss of life. While a family member or loved one can never be replaced, filing a car accident claim seeking damages can ease financial burdens.

Ways You Can Seek Damages

When filing an injury claim seeking financial relief after a car accident, the following are a few examples of what we can help you seek damages for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Current and future personal expenses
  • Loss of income, and more
