What to Do If You’ve Been Hurt in a Car Accident

To protect your rights to compensation, take the following steps after your car accident:

  • Call 911: It’s critical that law enforcement file a police report. Make sure you obtain a copy of that report, or we can help you get one.
  • Take Pictures: Take plenty of pictures or videos from various angles of the scene of the accident. Make sure you get photos of your injuries and the damage to the vehicles, as well.
  • Exchange Contact Information: Get the name, contact information, and insurance details for any other drivers involved. If there were eyewitnesses, get their names and contact information.
  • Seek Treatment Immediately: Do not wait to get medical care. Go to the ER, urgent care, or your own doctor right away. This will give you the best chance at recovery and ensure your injuries are properly documented. Follow your treatment plan and save all paperwork related to your medical care.
  • Consult with a Lawyer: Schedule a free and confidential consultation with an experienced Dallas Ft Worth area car accident attorney, like ours at Law Office of John Nwosu, PLLC. An attorney can manage all communication with the insurance companies and the other parties involved.

What You Need to Know About Dealing with Insurance Companies

No matter how helpful insurance adjusters may seem, they are not actually looking out for your best interests. Insurance companies will try to minimize the amount of money paid out on each car accident claim.

 Insurance adjusters routinely deny claims or make offers that are only a fraction of the case’s actual value. Keep the following tips in mind when dealing with insurance companies:

  • Be careful what you sign. Always carefully read any form or document from an insurance adjuster. Be very cautious of what the other driver’s insurance company asks you to sign. You could sign away your rights. This is why it’s highly recommended that you do not sign anything before consulting with an experienced Dallas Ft Worth area car accident lawyer.
  • Don’t give a recorded statement. The at-fault driver’s insurer may ask you to provide a recorded statement. Don’t do it. They will try to trick you into saying something you don’t intend to and later use the record against you. You have the right to refuse to give a recorded statement.
  • Don’t accept a fast payout. Never accept a quick settlement. You might think that your injuries are minor. Then weeks or even months later, you are still coping with symptoms and need additional medical treatment. If you were to accept a quick settlement, you wouldn’t be able to get additional compensation, not even for medical bills, even if your injuries are more severe than you originally thought.

We strongly recommend that you avoid talking to the at-fault party’s insurance company whenever possible. As soon as you can, reach out to an attorney from Law Office of John Nwosu, PLLC.

 Our team can deal with the insurance company so that you don’t have to. We will handle all communication with insurance adjusters and fight tirelessly to help ensure you receive the full, fair amount you deserve.

Common Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of bodily injury in the United States, including catastrophic and fatal injuries.

Common injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents include:

  • Neck Injuries and Whiplash: An injury to neck muscles, ligaments, and spinal discs, whiplash is among the most common of all car accident injuries. It’s typically caused by a sudden jerking motion and can lead to severe pain, memory issues, lack of concentration, and insomnia, among other symptoms. Accidents may also cause neck fractures and other severe neck injuries.
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): An injury that results in bruising, tearing, or other damage to the brain is known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A mild TBI would be a concussion, which usually heals over a few days. A severe TBI, on the other hand, is typically chronic and can cause a range of life-altering complications.
  • Arm and Leg Injuries: The force of a car crash can cause serious injuries to the arms and legs. Be it sprains, strains, crush injuries, or fractures, these injuries can occur in a variety of ways. Often, accident victims will try to brace themselves for the collision, and arms and legs suffer the brunt of the force.
  • Chest Injuries: Depending on the impact of the crash, chest injuries can vary from mild to severe. An example of a minor chest injury would be bruising from the seatbelt or airbag. If the crash is severe, it can lead to broken ribs or internal organ damage.
  • Back Injuries: The spine is not designed to withstand heavy impact. Back injuries are a common result of car crashes, as are spinal cord injuries and paralysis. The pain and disability associated with a back injury can be severe and long-term.
  • Burns: If the vehicle involved in the accident catches fire, occupants can sustain burns. Severe third-degree and fourth-degree burns could require surgery and skin grafting. Some motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle crashes, can also lead to friction burns, or “road rash.”
  • Facial Injuries: When an auto occupant’s face strikes the dashboard, steering wheel, windshield, or other objects, serious facial injuries occur. This includes fractures, deep cuts, jaw damage, and disfigurement.
  • Soft Tissue Damage: When muscles, tendons, or ligaments are torn or stretched during the accident, sprains, strains, and bruising can result. Soft tissue injuries can be painful and may result in a variety of adverse effects.

18-Wheeler Accidents Can be Catastrophic:

Most 18-wheeler accidents can result in catastrophic injuries for those involved. That is because the average passenger vehicle we found on our roads weighs about 3,000 pounds, whereas a loaded 18-wheeler can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. When a commercial truck accident with one of these huge trucks happens, people can be seriously hurt or even killed.

You can bet that the 18-wheeler company has lawyers and insurance personnel on standby to provide immediate damage control after an Austin truck accident with a passenger vehicle. In other words, 18-wheeler companies have someone in their corner, ready to fight and protect them in the event of a truck accident. Just like them, you need an experienced truck accident lawyer in your corner who understands how to immediately preserve evidence and has the resources to have accident reconstruction and trucking safety experts start working on the case immediately.

Due to the sheer size and weight of 18-wheelers and semi-trucks, truck drivers and companies are required to follow specific safety regulations and rules set by government agencies to safely operate their trucks on the road and protect those that share the roadways with them.

Other motorists’ lives are put at risk when truck drivers or truck companies fail to follow these rules. Common factors that play a role in trucking accidents caused by negligent truck drivers include:

  • Driver fatigue, possibly caused by violating hours of service rules;
  • Unsecured loads or overweight trailers;
  • Speeding or aggressive driving;
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
  • Improper maintenance and pre-trip inspections of the truck; and,
  • Improper driver training by the trucking company.

These behaviors put us all at risk and constitute negligence by the driver and his/her employer. Call an experienced truck accident lawyer today for a free consultation at 214-631-4646.
