Traffic accidents happen more often than you think. Fortunately, many of them result in little more than a fender bender with the victims being able to walk away with a few scrapes or bruises. However, severe traffic accidents can cause critical injuries and even death. This is particularly true in traffic accidents that occur at high speeds or those that involve a large commercial truck. If you or a loved one were the victim of a traffic injury, you may be able to recover damages for your losses.
Common Injuries Seen in Traffic Accident Cases
Some of the most commonly seen injuries in traffic accidents include but are not limited to:
- Open and closed head injuries
- Brain injuries, including concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Whiplash and other neck injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Loss of limb
- Wrongful death
These injuries can be devastating to the traffic accident victims and their loved ones. Life is unlikely to ever be the same after a traffic accident, and a family can be emotionally, financially, and physically affected after one or more of their loved ones are hurt in a crash.
Traffic Injury Expenses
There are numerous expenses related to injuries resulting from traffic accidents, including:
- Hospitalization, surgery, and other medical expenses
- Lost wages from being unable to work
- Vehicle repair costs
- Ongoing treatments
In addition to the financial and physical damage suffered by a traffic injury victim, it is highly likely that the victim will suffer emotional damage as well. Pain and suffering are very real, tangible effects of a car crash and should be justly compensated.
Why File a Traffic Injury Claim
When you or someone you love are hurt in a traffic accident, it may feel like you have no recourse. However, by filing a traffic injury claim against the person or company who is responsible for the accident, you may be able to recover substantial damages. With enough to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other accident related damages, you can begin moving forward with your life after such a devastating incident.
