Car Accident Incidents

Car accidents can instantly change your life and the life of your family. Injury victims whose insurance companies do not fully cover their injuries can be left responsible for thousands of dollars in medical expenses at a time when their income is severely limited. If your car accident was caused by another driver’s careless or reckless conduct, however, you may be entitled to financial compensation to assist you in meeting these bills and obligations.

Common Types of Car Accident Injuries

Have you been involved in an Allentown car accident? You may be suffering from a wide variety of injuries ranging in severity from mild to severe. Car accidents involve significant amounts of forces all acting upon your body, leading to injuries like:

Traumatic Brain Injuries

That can affect your functioning and ability to engage in daily activities. Some traumatic brain injuries (abbreviated as TBIs) can result in permanent disability.

Spine and Neck Injuries

Resulting from “whiplash” forces that cause your head and neck to rapidly accelerate and decelerate in a number of directions. Temporary or permanent disabilities can also result from these types of injuries.

Internal Trauma

Which occurs when a blunt force has been applied to your body and the resulting damage occurs to your muscles and organs. These injuries may or may not have outward symptoms, but if left untreated they could be deadly.

Cuts and Lacerations

Caused by sharp metal and glass pieces are seen frequently in car accident cases. Some of these cuts may be deep, allowing an infection to set in. Others can leave a person with permanent scarring.

The one thing most types of car accident injuries have in common is that medical intervention is usually necessary to stop any further damage from occurring and to repair the damage that has already occurred. This can cost you thousands of dollars in medical expenses and require you to miss a significant amount of time from work. A successful car accident lawsuit can help alleviate some of this financial pressure, allowing you to focus on your recovery.

Investigating a Car Accident Requires Resources

You only get one chance to win your car accident lawsuit: if you do not appropriately investigate the facts of your case and present them persuasively to a judge or jury, there is no option to “try again” and you will be left in a worse financial position than before. That is why it is important to have an experienced and resourceful Pennsylvania car accident law firm representing your interests. By identifying and preserving important witness testimony and evidence shortly after a car crash, you can dramatically increase your lawsuit’s chances of success.

Witnesses and their testimony form an important part of your trial strategy. Some car accident injury victims mistakenly assume that they can win their lawsuit solely by testifying about what happened themselves. This tactic rarely yields a positive result. You will want to have other eyewitnesses available to testify and who can corroborate your version of events. Sometimes, the investigating officer’s observations and impressions about the accident scene can be useful in establishing who is at fault in causing the accident. And, of course, any witness who overheard the other driver admit fault will have valuable testimony to share in court.

Evidence can also be used to support your version of events and establish fault after a car accident. Photographs of the accident scene and your injuries can be used to help “paint a picture” for the judge or jury. Your medical records and bills may be highly relevant to show the extent of your injuries and support the amount of compensation you are requesting. Other evidence that can be useful in supporting your lawsuit’s contentions include diagrams and drawings of the accident scene, cell phone records, or reconstruction simulations.

Gathering all of these witnesses and evidence requires a significant amount of time and resources. Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C. has been helping car accident victims for over forty years. We know what it takes for your car accident case to be successful and are ready to use our firm’s resources to help you succeed.
