Spinal cord injuries from car accidents have life-changing impact

Spinal cord injuries from car accidents have life-changing impact | Car Accident Attorney | Scoop.it

Volunteers have pitched in, but once the house is adapted the man will have to provide for his children. His line of work is not clear, but an article about the accident says that the family currently has no source of income. Of course, there are several jobs that paraplegics can do, but the man may need retraining to qualify for one of those positions.

 

Scott J Corwin's insight:

Suffering a spinal cord injury in an auto accident may change your life forever. Broken bones eventually heal and back or neck pain can be managed, but paralysis can be permanent. Because of some other driver's negligence, you might never walk again.

Video: What is my Car Accident Case Worth - Avvo.com | Car Accident Attorney | Scoop.it

There are numerous factors that determine the value of your car accident claim. I have outlined some of the most important.  Some of the components that carry weight in a potential motor vehicle accident claim are more easily quantifiable than others.  

 

Past and Future Medical bills play a significant role in determing the value of an injury claim.  Head and brain injuries, concussions for example, can have long term affects on a victim's health and subsequently result in large settlements. Spinal injuries also have high medical costs that will yield larger compensation for the victim.  The costs include your medical expenses incurred for all examination and treatment of your injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident.  In addition, costs of future care that are needed to take care of your injuries in the future are allowed as long as they can be predicted with a reasonable value.  Purely speculative damages are not permitted under California law.

 

Property Damage also plays a role in determining the value of a motor vehicle accident claim.  The greater the physical damage to the vehicles involved in the accident, the more easy it becomes to persuade the insurance company adjusters, defense lawyers and ultimately a jury that the victim has incurred injury as a result.  It is essentially the common sense issue that if one sees a lot of damage then the person must have been injured.  Of course, people can sustain injury from a minor property damage accident, however, persuading the insurance company adjuster to pay on these claims becomes much more difficult.

 

General Damaegs for Pain and Suffering for the injured victim's injuries.  This is in fact the largest component of damages for the injured victim in a motor vehicle accident.  This component of damages is less precisely quantifiable, and depending on the severity and permancy of the injuries, has a large impact on the potential value of the claim.  

 

Policy Limits and other assets can place artificial limits on the amounts that can be recovered.  Even if the person at fault does not have adequate or any insurance at all, the claim may still have value if the injured victim has uninsured motorist coverage

3 Factors That Affect Your Whiplash Injury Claim

3 Factors That Affect Your Whiplash Injury Claim | Car Accident Attorney | Scoop.it

While some auto accidents are avoidable through defensive and cautious driving, many are not. Whiplash is the most common injury sustained in motor vehicle accidents. Whiplash occurs during the sudden stop when a car collides with another object and the drivers head is forcefully moved. This sudden movement can strain muscles in the neck and back, damage vertebrae and even concuss anybody in the car at the time of the accident.  Knowing how a whiplash injury affects your injury claim is important as it may impact how you proceed with medical treatment.

Scott J Corwin's insight:

Whiplash Injuries, often caused by motor vehicle accidents, often require intensive care to facilitate a full recovery. If you sustained a whiplash injury from a car accident or other motor vehicle accident in the greater Los Angeles area, contact Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation (310) 207-4030 or visit their website: www.sjclaw.com.  Car Accident Scott J.

Video: Uninsured and Underinsured Auto Accident Claims Guide - Avvo.com

Video: Uninsured and Underinsured Auto Accident Claims Guide - Avvo.com | Car Accident Attorney | Scoop.it

What is an Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Claim?

An Uninsured Motorist or Underinsured Motorist claim can arise when a driver or passenger of a motor vehicle is injured by another driver who is at fault who either has no insurance or insufficient insurance to cover the damages sustained by the injured victim.  California law mandates all drivers and owners maintain liability insurance coverage.  Many do not.  Many who do have only the state minimum which is $15,000 per person and $30,000 per accident.  A serious injury will easily exceed those state minimum limits.  If either of these situations arise, a person who carries Uninsured (UM) or Underinsured (UIM) coverages then proceeds with the claim against their own insurance company, who stands in the "shoes" of the UM or UIM at fault driver.

 

How should I proceed with my Uninsured or Under-Insured Motorist Claim

 

1. Gather information from all the involved parties, including witnesses

The fact of the matter is that if the claim becomes a battle of "he-said, she-said,"  the value of the claim diminishes and the claim becomes much more difficult to settle.  To solve this, collecting information from the involved individuals can help your attorney greatly, even if it is just a license plate (in the case of a hit and run). Interviewing and collecting contact information from witnesses of the accident can give great credibilty to a case.  In a hit and run case it is indeed vital to have the license plate or other identifying information.  It is critical if it is a "no contact" accident, for example if someone swerves into your lane and you then swerve to avoid the collision and crash.  The ID of the other party is determinative of whether you can bring a UM claim under those particular circumstances.

 

2. Seek Medical Attention 

If you were injured in an accident of any manner: car; bike; motorcycle; bus or any other automobile, you may need medical attention to address your needs.  Serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries, head and neck injuries, amputations or lacerations all need to be taken care of professionally.  This applies equally in a UM or UIM claim.

 

3.  Contact an Experienced Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claim Attorney

Most automobile accident attorneys offer free consultations to review your case and advise you further in your claim.  Given the fact that most motor vehicle attorneys collect fees on a contingency, you have no out of pocket expenses and no risk in contacting and retainingthe best UM and UIM auto accident attorney that you can find.  Representing yourself in a car accident claim does not typically yield the results that hiring a professional can. UM and UIM claims can be more complex in that you are bringing a claim against your own insurance company that becomes your adversary.  An experienced attorney is important to help you with these types of claims.
