Jury Verdict

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries in Florida. In fact, an estimated 31,270 people suffered car accident injuries in Miami alone in 2018. Injuries can range from mild bruising to permanent paralysis or disfigurement.  

If you have suffered car accident injuries in Miami, it's important to understand your rights and which steps to take following your injuries.

The Most Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to traumatic brain injuries that have life-altering consequences.

Some of the most common types of injuries include:

Cuts and Bruises

Even minor car accidents can cause cuts and bruises. While this may not sound like a big deal, some bruising and cuts can be very painful or require stitches. But in most cases, these minor injuries don't require additional medical attention and will typically heal within a few weeks.

Whiplash

It's very common for accident victims to suffer whiplash from a car accident. When a vehicle collides with another vehicle or object, the impact can cause the body to jostle in ways it shouldn't and at high speeds.

Whiplash strains the muscles and ligaments in your neck. It's a painful injury that can take weeks to heal.

Broken Bones

The impact from a car accident can lead to broken bones. Your chest may hit the steering wheel, leading to broken ribs. Your body may be flung towards the car door, breaking your arm in the process.

Depending on the severity of the injury, broken bones can take several weeks or months to heal.

Concussions

Concussions are one of the more common head injuries from car accidents. During a collision, your head is very vulnerable and can hit many parts of the vehicle. A hard enough hit can cause a concussion, which can cause severe headaches, memory issues and long-term damage.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Car accidents can cause more than physical injuries – they can cause psychological trauma as well. Many accident victims suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), particularly if the accident was severe or another passenger suffered serious injuries or death.

PTSD can cause debilitating anxiety, insomnia, and aversions to certain sights, sounds, or activities, such as driving.

Internal Injuries

A car crash can force your body into other objects, causing internal injuries and bleeding. Flying debris can also cause internal injuries. No matter the cause, these injuries are severe and require immediate medical attention. Ignoring internal injuries can lead to death.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Unfortunately, car accidents regularly cause traumatic brain injuries that can have lifelong consequences.

TBIs can be fatal. The CDC estimates that the majority of TBI-related deaths are directly caused by car accidents.

It's not uncommon for TBIs to cause long-term disability and motor deficits.

Back Injuries

Car accidents can cause back injuries that can lead to severe pain and even disability. Sometimes, these injuries can take a few days to start showing symptoms, so it's important for car accident victims to seek medical attention even if they aren't in pain or experiencing any symptoms.

In severe cases, car accidents can cause spinal cord injuries that can lead to paralysis or long-term disability.

Who Is Responsible For My Car Accident Injuries?

If you were injured in a car accident, you may be wondering who is responsible for your injuries. The answer depends on the circumstances of the accident.

If the other driver's negligent behavior (running a red light, speeding, texting while driving, etc.) caused the accident that resulted in your injuries, he or she may be held liable for your losses.

Determining liability can be a complicated process that requires the help of an experienced lawyer.  

Most states are considered "fault" states, which means that financial responsibility for accident injuries lies on the person considered at-fault for the collision.  

What Are the Next Steps After Getting Injured in A Car Accident?

The steps you take following a car accident injury will have a direct impact on your injury claim. Some of the most important steps to take after your injury include:

Getting Medical Attention

The most important thing you can do is seek medical attention for your injuries. No matter how minor the injury, it is crucial to see a doctor right away.  

Some injuries take a few days to start showing symptoms. If you fail to seek medical attention right away, it can hurt your claim.

Gathering Evidence

If you can, gather evidence. Talk to witnesses and get their contact information. Take photos of the accident scene. Write down any details that you can remember. The sooner you can do this, the better. Shortly after an accident, the details will still be fresh in your mind.

Contacting a Lawyer

When a car accident causes injuries, it's in your best interest to contact a lawyer. A lawyer will help you understand your rights and determine the best course of action to take.

How Can A Lawyer Help Me After I Sustain Car Accident Injuries?

If you were injured in a car accident, a lawyer can help you fight for the compensation that you deserve. Insurance companies are not in the business of handing out money in settlements. They want you to settle for as little compensation as possible.

A lawyer will advocate for your rights to help you receive fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, future care, and pain and suffering.

Your lawyer will deal with the insurance company, so you can focus on your recovery.

FAQs

How long after a car accident can injuries appear?

Most cart accident injuries will be noticeable right away after the accident. Sometimes it will take a couple of days to notice the symptoms of internal bleeding or soft tissue injuries. Brain and neck injuries (such as concussions and whiplash) can take even longer to show up. PTSD can make itself apparent weeks or even months after the incident. This is why you should seek medical assistance as soon as possible after an accident so that you can find out about your injuries as soon as possible.

How do you not get hurt in a car accident?

The best way to avoid getting hurt in a car accident is to wear a seatbelt and drive very carefully. Keeping up on car maintenance is another way to make sure you are as safe as possible. Practicing defensive driving and always being aware of the other drivers on the road will also help prevent accidents and injuries.

Can you get a concussion from a minor car accident?

Absolutely. It does not take much force to cause a concussion. Even if your head did not collide with anything else, a quick enough motion can cause the brain to hit the inside of the skull hard enough to cause a concussion. If you have been in an accident, and especially if you have a headache or other signs of concussion, you should seek medical assistance immediately.
