After you are injured in a car accident, you need to take quick, decisive steps in order to be fairly and fully compensated for your accident. As a driver or passenger, you need to be well informed regarding what to do after an accident happens, because car accidents continue to happen with alarming frequency in Kentucky. In fact, there have been more traffic fatalities in Kentucky today than there were in 2014 at this time last year. Here are two ways you can recover from a car accident.
Injuries from Car Accidents
Keep in mind, that it is vital to seek medical attention for car accident injuries even if your pain is not severe. Also, delayed pain from car accidents is commonplace and caused by many factors including adrenalin circulating throughout your body as a result of the shock of being in a car accident. The other driver’s car insurance company will likely contact you after the accident.
The car insurance company for the other driver may deny coverage if you were previously injured in the same area/part of your body. For example, insurance companies may attribute the severity of your neck and/or back injuries to injuries or illnesses previously suffered to your neck and/or back. This is not a valid reason to deny you the fair compensation for your current injuries. The injuries from car accidents often involve tendons, ligaments and muscles.
There are countless instances where clients suffer excruciating pain as a result of accidents with soft tissue injuries involving tendons, ligaments and muscles. Seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer when you are injured in a car accident soon after an accident.
Property damage is also an expensive, inconvenient loss that Kentucky drivers lose in a car accident. The car or truck that has been reliable for you whether it is one year or six years is severely damaged. In many instances, the other driver’s insurance company should compensate you for the damage to your vehicle within a month after the accident.
