Investigating Car Accidents Requires Expertise, Experience and Resources
Getting to the bottom of why the car accident occurred in the first place is the main focus of the investigating attorney and it may take a considerable amount of time and money to fully assess the various aspects of the accident. The source of the car accident that caused your injuries and who exactly is responsible for those injuries will need to be identified, and to do this, the investigating attorney will need to look into whether the accident was the fault of another driver. Or, perhaps a negligent bicyclist or an inattentive pedestrian was liable for the crash. Environmental factors may have played a role in the accident; or, perhaps defective tires, brakes, or other mechanical or electrical parts may have contributed to the car accident. It takes a team of highly skilled and knowledgeable car accident attorneys to thoroughly investigate your car accident case.
An important part of investigating a car accident is to consult with experts outside of the law. For instance, it may be important to your case to consult with a master mechanic or mechanical engineer if there is the possibility that a defect in the vehicle may have been a contributing factor to the accident. If there is the possibility that the physical condition of the roadway was a contributing factor in your car accident, then civil engineers may be consulted to give their expert opinion on the condition of the road and how there may be a deviation from how the roadway should have been constructed, designed or maintained.
Evidence is time-sensitive in a car accident case, so photographs should be taken immediately after the accident. Photos of the scene of the accident, the vehicles involved in the accident, and the injuries that you sustained need to be obtained before the scene can be cleaned, the cars can be repaired or your injuries start to heal. Preserving the evidence is of the utmost importance. Witnesses statements will need to be documented and any video evidence of the accident should be collected for presentation at trial.

Common Types of Injuries Caused by Car Accidents
When you are involved in a car accident, there are a number of different injuries that you could suffer. There is also no correlation between the severity of the car accident and the seriousness of the injuries you sustain. Some of the most common injuries associated with car accidents include, but aren’t limited to:
Traumatic Brain Injury
In a car accident, the head is often jostled around due to the sudden impact of the vehicular collision. A blow to the head could cause an injury to the brain, even if no wound is visible. Untreated brain injuries can be life threatening.
Spinal Cord Injury
The body experiences a great deal of force during a car accident, which can cause damage to the spinal cord. Spinal cord damage can cause loss of sensation in certain parts of the body, nerve damage and partial or full paralysis.
Car accidents often involve a collision, which can result in impact-type injuries. Broken or fractured bones, abrasions from broken glass, and injuries to the face when the airbag deploys are all common impact-type injuries sustained in car accidents.
Soft Tissue Injury
Many people involved in car accidents suffer sprains and strains, which are soft tissue injuries, after a car accident. A badly strained muscle or a severely sprained ankle or knee can be a serious soft tissue injury.
Airbags deploy due to a chemical reaction inside the airbag. These chemicals often burst out of the airbag during a car accident and onto the face, arms and chest of the vehicle occupants, resulting in chemical burns to the skin.
Many people that are involved in car accidents suffer a degree of psychological damage afterwards due to the trauma and shock that they experience during the accident.

I researched and filled out a short form online, CP&R came up on my list, and I contacted them first and last. I live across the country; I took a gamble because I had nothing to lose. Later I found it was the right decision.Isaac R.
