New Jersey Car Crashes
Car accidents have become a serious issue in the United States and throughout the state of New York. Every year, over 6 million car crashes happen throughout the country that cause millions of people to sustain injuries and tens of thousands to lose their lives. Approximately 43% of the traffic collisions reported in the United States end in injuries.
If you were involved in a collision, always contact the police, even if the crash seems minor. Even fender benders can end in serious injuries with lasting impacts on victims. While it’s imperative to obtain a police report of your accident, you should not admit fault, even if you think you may have contributed to the cause of the collision. Issues beyond your control, such as the negligence of the other driver or vehicle malfunctions, may have been the root cause of the incident.
You should always seek proper medical care right away after your accident, even if you don’t think you sustained any serious injuries. Some injuries may not be apparent until days or even weeks after your accident, and you may not be able to detect them without the help of a skilled medical doctor. This means either heading to the ER or an urgent care facility or seeing your own doctor. Even if your injuries do not seem severe, do not attempt to ‘wait and see’ or ‘tough it out.’ Some injuries, especially such as whiplash or other musculoskeletal injuries, may not completely manifest until a day or so after the crash.
Failure to seek prompt medical care may result in the responsible party’s insurance company attempting to downplay the severity of your injuries or even claim your injuries are unrelated to the accident itself. When you sustain serious injuries in a crash, working with a skilled lawyer can help you deal with the insurance companies and get the compensation you deserve. After you’re hurt in an accident caused by a negligent driver, you may be eligible to collect compensation for medical bills, vehicle repairs, wage loss, and more.
