What Are Some Common Car Accident Injuries?

Car accident injuries can be quite severe. Crash victims frequently have to deal with long recovery times that keep them out of work or injuries that leave lasting health issues behind. Common injuries include:

  • Broken and fractured bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Concussions and traumatic brain injuries
  • Back, neck, and spine injuries, like whiplash
  • Burns
  • Nerve damage
  • Facial trauma
  • Bruised or broken ribs
  • Loss of a body part or function
  • PTSD and other mental health issues

Can I Sue Over Car Accident Injuries?

You can sue for damages if you believe that someone else caused your injuries through their actions or negligence. It can be tough to prove negligence on your own though. An attorney from our firm can help you build a stronger case and fight for a fair compensation offer.

How Long Do I Have to Sue Over Car Accident Injuries?

New York gives you three years to sue over car accident injuries. That can seem like a long time, but you would be surprised at how quickly time can pass while you focus on recovering and getting back to life as usual. This is why we recommend acting quickly and hiring an attorney.

The faster you act, the sooner your attorney can start building your case. Not only will you not have to worry about being cut off by the statute of limitations, but this also makes it easier for your attorney to secure potential evidence, like surveillance footage, and talk to witnesses while their memory is fresh.

Will I Need to Go to Trial?

If you are worried that suing for damages means a long, drawn-out trial, don’t be. Your case might go to trial, but it’s likely to settle before then. A lawyer from our firm will do their best to negotiate for a fair settlement. If you do end up having to go to trial, we will build a case that can succeed in front of a judge and jury.
