When Do Car Accident Injuries Merit A Lawsuit?

When severe or life-threatening injuries occur as a result of a car crash, there is usually fertile ground for legal action of some sort. However, a common question is asked by those who have sustained minor or seemingly less serious car accident injuries: Do I Have a Case? As an attorney who concentrates on car accidents and who understands the complexities of accident insurance claims, I can help you figure out the answer in your case.

In reality, most car collisions are not catastrophic or life-threatening, but that doesn’t mean that medical costs and personal losses won’t come into play for an injured person. Some injuries are not obvious because they don’t show up on X-rays or MRIs (whiplash injury, soft tissue injury and certain types of back injury are good examples), but they can cause a person to miss work, and they may require significant rehabilitative, therapeutic or surgical treatment.

If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident, be wary of agreeing to settle quickly with an insurance carrier, and be cautious about giving recorded statements by phone regarding your injuries. Such statements may be used against you by a carrier trying to avoid or minimize payment on a claim.
