Every year, there are hundreds of auto accidents. It is one of the most common reasons for sustaining injuries. In fact, many accidents also result in deaths. There are two types of accidents that occur more frequently than others do: those caused by another driver, or those caused by your negligence. When on the road, every driver tries to keep their car safe.
When on the road, it is your duty to obey the rules of the road. In Indianapolis, there are stringent driving requirements and fitness tests that you and your car, must pass before you can drive on the road. Accident injuries not only cause severe physical and mental trauma, but it may even result in a permanent disability. Needless to say, auto accident injuries also result in a heavy financial loss.
According to the laws of the State of Indiana, all those who drive are required to maintain liability insurance. In case you get involved in an accident, the insurance will help you protect yourself.
In case of an injury to the neck, back, brain or any other part of your body, you will have to file a claim under bodily insurance coverage. As per the law of the State, the party at fault is required to pay the damages and any due compensation. However, settling such a case is rarely so easy. Instead, cases pertaining to auto accidents tend to stretch out for months.
Insurance firms hire adjusters that are specifically trained to settle at the lowest possible amount. They will assess the nature of your injury before proceeding further. For instance, if you have sustained a brain, neck or back injury, the financial damages will be much greater.
That’s simply because a brain injury may leave you mentally impaired. Similarly, physical injury can also lead to permanent disability. Depending upon the nature and extent of the injuries sustained, the final settlement amount may vary.
Types of Personal Injuries
Anything can happen in a car collision. From breaking a leg to becoming mentally impaired, anything can happen. Here are just some of the different types of accident injuries, as well as their related symptoms that you can sustain from a car accident:
Head, brain and Neck Injuries
Commonly known as intracranial injury, traumatic brain injuries usually occur when a powerful external force hits the head. Traumatic brain injury can affect the body in many different ways, and has a whole host of different symptoms. The most common symptoms include loss of consciousness, impairment of essential bodily functions or physical disability.
Motor skills may be lost as a result of traumatic brain injuries as well. In case you get injured, you need a very strong, experienced lawyer to handle your case. The effects of brain injuries last a long time. Some may even be permanent. Your lawyer will not only help you get justice, but will also get you adequate financial compensation that is sufficient for long-term rehabilitation.
Injuries to your backside can be extremely harmful in the long run. The intervertebral disks are situated in the lumbar spine regions. In certain traumatizing accidents, this can lead to permanent disability as well. CT and MRI scans are carried out in order to diagnose such injuries. Common symptoms of injuries to the back side of the body include numbness, a tingling sensation, and weakness in the arms or legs. Needless to say, the rehabilitation period is pretty long.
You will have to take a number of prescription medicines in order to dull the pain, and may even have to start physiotherapy as well.
