Common Car Accident Injury Questions

Q: Do I Need to See a Doctor After a Car Accident?

A: Yes, you do. Seeing a doctor is the most important thing you can do after an auto accident. Not only will seeing a doctor ensure that you receive the medical treatment you need to heal, but it will also ensure that your accident and injuries are documented. We can then use this medical documentation to prove the injuries you’ve sustained, and we can use your medical bills to help prove the extent to which your injury costed you when filing a personal injury claim against the party responsible for your accident.

Q: Can I Sue if a Car Accident Made a Pre-Existing Condition Worse?

A: Yes, you can. Though it can be difficult to prove exactly to what extent your pre-existing condition was aggravated by an accident, we can prove as much by showing how your pre-existing condition affected your life before and how it impacts your life now, after your accident. In some cases, this can increase the amount of compensation you receive for your injury.

Q: What Should I Do if I Sustained a Catastrophic Injury in a Car Accident?

A: A catastrophic injury is an injury that significantly and permanently impacts a person’s life. Some examples of catastrophic injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or disfigurement. If you’ve been catastrophically injured, the most important thing you can do is receive immediate medical treatment. Once you’ve done so, you should hire a competent personal injury attorney who can fight for the maximum compensation to which you are entitled.
