Proving Injuries in an Automobile Personal Injury Case
Accidents and wrecks via car, truck, trailer, motorcycle, and bicycle are frequently serious accidents, sometimes accompanied by lifelong permanent injuries and damages.
If you have sustained injuries in an accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. Nick Larby, Esq., can help facilitate those conversations with the insurance companies when it comes to settlement and he will help negotiate and litigate your case through the court system when necessary.
It Happens More Than You Think
Catastrophic injuries can occur in any multitude of accident types. High-speed accidents involving motorcycles, 4 wheelers, and bicycles are the most likely to result in catastrophic injury and damages since these vehicles do not provide riders and operators the same protection as an enclosed vehicle. Riders and operators of these vehicles are thus exposed to the ground, and when accidents happen, they tend to strike the ground and other objects more directly.
An example of some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries and damages suffered as a result of accident cases includes but is not limited to the following:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Broken Bones/ Fractures
- Lifelong Permanent injuries
- Paralysis/Partial Paralysis
- Cuts, Bruises, Road Rash
Reasons Insurance Could Want to Deny Compensation
Whenever an accident victim seeks compensation for an injury, the insurance company will look for a multitude of reasons to potentially deny or limit liability for those injuries and damages. As a measure of due diligence, the insurance company will search for other potential causes relating to the claim, such as the following:
- Any prior surgeries that could be related
- MRI/CT Changes
- Preexisting medical conditions
- Prior injuries and their relevance
- Prior Car/ATV/Motorcycle accidents
How Can I Prove What Happened?
The best way to prove damages resulting from a catastrophic injury is to obtain, attend and practice treatment and advice. Through expert testimony by a treating doctor or other health care provider, you provide validity and due diligence. An expert medical provider is able to testify about the injured client’s medical treatment and the lifelong or perhaps permanent nature of the injury or injuries sustained.
