Auto accident injuries vary widely in degrees of severity. A driver and a passenger in the same accident can suffer completely different injuries. All injuries - from broken bones to paralysis - qualify for compensation if they have been caused by someone else's negligence.
If you've been injured in an auto accident in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, your top priority should be receiving immediate medical care. Even if you feel fine after an accident, get yourself checked out by a medical professional. It's important to understand that you have a right to copies of your medical records at a reasonable cost.
Seeing a medical professional is not only good for your health and well-being. It may also strengthen your personal injury claim. Injuries suffered as a result of car wrecks can vary widely. Someone may get bruised or cut, while another person in the same accident may sustain an injury requiring amputation or brain damage.
Accidents may result in burns, whiplash or other internal injuries.
If you were a pedestrian, you may be eligible for compensation if you suffered an auto accident injury. Remember, get all the information you can about the accident, including:
Additionally, if you were injured as a pedestrian, be prepared to answer questions about whether or not you followed traffic rules, used proper crossing locations, or otherwise acted in a safe and responsible manner prior to the accident. Although pedestrians have the right of way, the driver involved in the accident will likely try to prove that you were not being responsible. Don't let them intimidate you. Let us help you set the record straight. Do not give a statement. Call Flager & Yockey.
Passengers in an auto accident are considered free of liability for the collision, unless they blatantly distracted the driver.
If you were a passenger and sustained an auto accident injury, you may have a claim against all at-fault parties, including the operators of any of the cars involved in the accident. However, if you get into a car knowing that the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may have "assumed the risk" of being in an accident.
