Have you been injured in an automobile accident?

Have you been involved in a car accident? Were you injured? Do you have any reason to think that you may not little or no liability for the incident? Do you have rising legal, medical or automotive repair costs associated with your crash? If so, you should strongly consider contacting a lawyer to determine if you are eligible to be represented and possibly receive reparations for the accident. Legally recoverable damages are categorized by the Habush law firm as:

  • Pain and Suffering
  • Past medical costs
  • Future medical costs
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Lost Wages

If you have experienced any of these damages due to an automobile accident, you should consider legal recourse, particularly if you think you might not be fully responsible for the accident. There are many reasons why you might not be held liable for an automobile accident injury. I will explore a few here, but please note that this list is by no means comprehensive. To be certain, you should perform your own research and contact a lawyer with any questions you may have.

Probably the most common type of accident occurs because of Driver Error or Reckless Driving. These categories involve behaviors like speeding, cutting other drivers off, driving aggressively, being distracted by cell phones or the radio, etc. If you were involved in a car accident, it is possible that one or more of the other drivers involved was driving recklessly or made an error. If this is the case, you should consider taking legal action. If, however, you made a driver error and/or were recklessly driving, there is still a possibility of receiving some sort of compensation, though it may be less. For example, if you were injured in an automobile accident but failed to buckle your seatbelt, you might only be eligible for reduced compensation or none at all. You should contact a lawyer to determine if there is a case to be made regarding your injury.

Unfortunately, many car injuries may not surface until hours or days following the car accident, especially if the injuries were internal. If you have recently been in a car accident and were not evaluated for any bodily harm immediately following the incident, you should consider seeking a medical evaluation to determine if the accident caused any physical damage. Alternatively, if you were evaluated after the accident and were found to have bodily damage, you might consider seeking legal help to offset any of the medicals costs associated with your treatment. To see if you qualify for legal representation, you should contact a lawyer with your questions and concerns.

Following an accident, a driver’s insurance company might request your medical records. Before taking any actions or revealing confidential information, it is important to know your privacy rights and whether or not you are obligated to comply with the insurance company‚Äôs requests. Make sure to contact a lawyer to discuss your options when dealing with insurance companies after an automobile accident.
