Obtaining Compensation for Injuries Sustained in a Car Crash

Avoidable accidents cause many crashes and injuries. Thousands of Kansas residents are injured in car accidentscaused by negligent or reckless driving every year. Sustaining an injury in a car crash can take a devastating emotional, physical, and financial toll on injured parties and their families. But you can and should obtain compensation from the at-fault parties who caused the crash.

Common Car Accident Injuries

While many car crashes involve collisions between two or more cars, others are caused by road hazards, missing signs, drop off shoulders, dangerous low volume roads, defectively designed or manufactured car parts, or broken traffic or train lights. There are a few injuries that are seen again and again in car accidents, including:

  • Spinal, arm and leg fractures;
  • Minor to severe lacerations;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Nerve or organ damage;
  • Paralysis;
  • Whiplash;
  • Head trauma;
  • Traumatic brain injury,
  • Spinal cord injury, and
  • Back and neck injuries.

Collecting Damages

The medical costs involved with treating a car wreck injury can be extremely expensive. This is especially true for those who sustain serious and permanent injuries that may require:

  • Prescription medications;
  • Appointments with specialists;
  • Reconstructive surgeries;
  • Physical therapy; and
  • Long-term nursing.

Passengers injured in car crashes may be unable to return to work for months as a result of their injuries, which can put a significant strain on a family’s finances, especially when a household is supported by a single income. Car accidents also often result in damage to the vehicles involved.

These expenses can quickly add up to overwhelm an injured party and his or her family. Fortunately, if an injured party can establish that another driver caused the accident, he or she may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Hospital, doctor and medical costs;
  • Property damage;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of future income;
  • Scarring, disfigurement, and
  • Loss of function from pain and restricted motion.
