What Are Other Accident Injuries?
Other Accident Injuries Explained
What are “other” accident injuries? These types of injuries are generally the result of uncommon accidents that you do not often hear about. There is, however, a shared similarity between other accident injuries and more common accident injuries–each causes an injury victim pain and suffering and can often result from negligence.
Here are examples of each to show you what we mean:
Other Accident Injuries
- Airbag injuries and deaths
- Dangerous pathogen injuries
- Vehicle fires
- Rollover accident injuries
- Road debris accident injuries
- Self-driving car accident injuries
Common Accident Injuries
- Car accident injuries
- Motorcycle accident injuries
- Big rig accident injuries
- Bicycle accident injuries
- Construction accident injuries
- Passenger accident injuries
Determining Compensation for Other Accident Injuries
Ultimately, the amount of compensation you may be eligible to receive after an accident depends on the severity of your injuries.
During a free consultation, the personal injury legal team you contact will go over the details that led up to your accident through the point of contact with the law firm.
More specifically, they will evaluate any medical records and bills, police reports, accident scene photos, witness testimonies, lost wages, and other key documentation to develop a solid picture of what happened and who is responsible. From there, they can give you a better idea of the amount of compensation that you may be entitled to.
Insurance companies, on the other hand, will conduct their own accident investigation. They will be focused on measuring the severity of your injuries, getting a total amount of your medical bills and the length of your recovery time, as well as finding out if you may be—in any way—responsible for your accident. This is true whether it’s the defendant’s insurance company or your own.
It is important to note that a majority of insurance companies are more interested in looking out for their own financial welfare than their policyholder’s best interests. They want to find ways to deny you benefits after an accident. This behavior can make it more difficult for you to get what you deserve.
That is why no matter the type of accident you suffer, it’s important to seek legal assistance. Experienced local personal injury lawyers can help ensure that you are not taken advantage of by an insurance company and lose out on the benefits you deserve.
