Various injuries from traffic accidents

Car Accidents Various Injuries

Thousands of drivers and passengers are injured in accidents each year in California. Many of these people are lucky and fully recover from their injuries. Others, however, have permanent disabilities or suffering. To protect your legal rights if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident in California It is important to consult an experienced California car accident attorney as soon as possible.

Compensation commonly reported in car accidents

Car accidents involve high impact forces, sudden movements, and often broken glass and debris.
Injuries suffered by the driver and passengers depend on the circumstances surrounding the accident, such as:

● Use of Seat Belts
● Where the victim's vehicle was hit (front, side, back)
● How to put yourself in the victim's seat
● Vehicle speed at the time of accident
● Whether the vehicle's airbags are deployed

Car accident injuries are divided into two types: impact and penetrating. Examples of impact injuries include hitting your head against a seat or being hit by the side of a vehicle. Penetrating injuries include lacerations and amputations. It can be caused by a broken windshield or an unsecured item in the vehicle.

Head and Brain Damage

A head injury is one of the most dangerous injuries an accident victim can suffer. Some head injuries, such as brain hemorrhage, can develop slowly over several days and can be fatal if not treated. Anyone who suffers a head injury in an automobile accident should seek medical attention immediately. Fractures of the skull are often reported after motor vehicle accidents. A skull fracture in which one of the skull bones is broken or cracked. In some cases, fragments of the skull penetrate the brain, causing further damage. A hematoma is bleeding that occurs under the skull. In some cases, hematomas can become large and fatal. A concussion, a type of traumatic brain injury, occurs when an accident victim receives a blow or shock to the head. Concussions can cause confusion, loss of consciousness, and even death when swelling or pressure builds up in the brain.

Back and Spine Injuries

Back and spinal injuries are common in auto accident claims. The spine generally includes the cervical spine that surrounds the neck; the thoracic spine, including the upper back; The lumbar vertebrae that make up the lower back. Injuries to the thoracic spine can be very serious. The thoracic spine is connected to the chest and ribs, and nerve damage in this area can lead to permanent disability. The lumbar spine contains some of the strongest muscles in the back and the five largest vertebrae. Lumbar injuries often cause pain, limited movement, and swelling. Cervical spine injuries can affect a person's ability to move their arms as well as their ability to breathe. This is because of the nerves that connect to this area of the spinal cord. Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis or permanent disability, regardless of which part of the spine is affected. People with spinal cord injuries often face a future of significant health care costs throughout their lives.


Broken bones and fractures are reported in many motor vehicle accidents. The forces involved in the collision are strong enough to easily break bones. There are many types of broken bones and fractures. A stable fracture occurs when the two broken bone pieces are slightly out of place. The ends are still lined up. In open compound fractures, the bone may protrude out of the body. In this type of injury, the skin is pierced. Accident victims are at high risk for this type of fracture. A transverse fracture occurs when a bone breaks along a horizontal plane. An oblique fracture occurs when the fracture line is jagged or skewed. A comminuted fracture causes the bone to break into several pieces.

Soft Tissue Damage

Soft tissue injuries affect ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Sprains and strains are common. A sprain occurs when a ligament is stretched or torn too much. Ligaments are pieces of tissue that connect two bones together. A sprain is when a tendon or muscle is torn or overstretched. Ligaments connect bones to other bones while tendons connect muscles to bones. One of the most frequently reported soft tissue injuries after an automobile accident is a whiplash injury. Whiplash is caused by sudden, sudden movements in an accident. Throwing the head forward and then bending it back damages the muscles in the back and neck.

Still, quite a few people think that in the event of a car accident, they will be able to handle everything with the help of their insurance company. But the important thing for customers to know is that insurance adjusters protect the interests of the insurer by spending as little as possible. That's why car accident lawyers fight against insurance companies and represent car accident victims to get the maximum compensation they are entitled to.

That's right. This is because there are no separate attorneys' fees and no fees from the client. Instead, our traffic accident lawyers receive a fee based on the amount of compensation from the insurance company, and if there is no compensation, we do not receive a separate fee.

When the term "Negligence" is used in personal injury law, it refers to the plaintiff's legal principle. Most auto accident claims and other types of personal injury lawsuits are based on this legal theory. A careless person has failed to do the permitted duty of care. It is an obligation on the part of the driver to exercise the same level of caution in the same or similar circumstances. In the context of an automobile accident claim, the duty of care generally refers to the driver's responsibility to obey traffic laws, drive carefully, and prevent automobile accidents.

Proving negligence in a car accident case requires clear and convincing evidence that the driver or other defendant violated his or her duty of care. A breach of duty is a breach of the level of care required by the circumstances. Next, the victim (or the victim's attorney) must prove that the defendant's breach of duty was the proximate or primary cause of the car accident. In other words, the conflict would not have occurred had it not been for the negligence of the accused.

Evidence of negligence is required to establish elements of an auto accident claim in California. Evidence can take the form of police accident reports, photographs and video footage, signed eyewitness statements, auto accident expert testimony, crash reconstructions, medical records, cell phone records, and commercial driver employment records. A lawyer can help you gather all the evidence to prove the defendant's negligence in a car accident case.

How does mutual negligence affect my car accident insurance claim?
Relative (both parties) negligence is usually a defense that the perpetrator of a car accident can use to try to lower the amount of a settlement or judgment. The victim also claims that he was partly responsible for the accident and that the defendant should be relieved of some liability for the damages.
In cases of both negligence in a car accident case, the amount of compensation you receive from the other driver may be reduced if relative negligence applies to you. For example, if your fault is found to be 10%, your recovery award will be reduced by a corresponding percentage.
California is a state that recognizes pure comparative negligence. This means that perpetrators can be held liable for up to 99% of car accidents and receive monetary compensation for the remaining 1%. To maximize your economic recovery, it is important to work with an attorney who can oppose comparative (relative) negligence defenses.

You may be covered if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance (UM/UIM).

A hit-and-run accident refers to an accident in which the perpetrator neglects to fulfill his legal duty of care, such as taking financial responsibility for the accident. In a hit-and-run case, you may not know how to proceed with a claim because you do not know the identity of the perpetrator. California's negligent auto insurance laws do not apply when the identity of the at-fault party is unknown. Luckily, your auto insurance company can provide a solution for you.

One of the first steps you should take after a hit and run accident is to call the police. Police can investigate crash sites and pursue negligent drivers. In this case, as in other car accident cases, you can proceed with a collision claim by filing a claim with the negligent driver's insurance company. However, if the police cannot identify the driver, they will instead file a claim for monetary compensation through the car insurance company. Call your insurance agent to report the accident as soon as possible. Your agent will tell you if you have uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance (UM/UIM) that can cover damages.

In California, it is not mandatory to have insurance for uninsured/underinsured motorists. However, if you wish to decline this coverage, you must manually opt out when purchasing the policy. If you have this insurance, your insurance company will pay for property damage repairs and medical expenses. Comprehensive and crash insurance can also pay for hit-and-run accident damages. Our LA auto accident attorneys can help you negotiate with your insurance company for fair and reasonable recovery compensation after a serious hit-and-run auto accident.

Another way to achieve financial recovery after a hit-and-run car accident is to hold someone other than the driver liable for the damages. A lawyer can tell you whether another party contributed to your accident, such as the hired driver's company, the city of LA in the case of dangerous roads, or the vehicle manufacturer in the case of a defective auto part. Contact our auto accident attorney's office today for a free consultation.

If you can claim damages, we can help you understand the type and amount you need to put in your initial demand letter against the abuser. Every car accident case is unique and the damage and loss suffered by survivors is different. Finding the right amount can increase your odds of securing a successful insurance settlement.

THE SANN LAW GROUP can review your case and calculate an appropriate amount to charge. They will then fight to get this amount or more from the insurance company or other defendants in LA County.
