Traffic Accidents

Traffic accidents make up a considerable portion of personal injury claims, and better understanding traffic accident claims can help you better understand personal injury cases in general. All of the following points pertain to traffic accidents and their claims:

Every motorist is responsible for driving safely. This includes not just obeying the rules of the road but also adjusting one’s driving for the condition of the road, including taking the effects of inclement weather into careful consideration. This amounts to the duty of care every driver owes everyone else on the road.

Professional drivers shoulder an even heavier duty of care that includes strict hours-of-service restrictions that are intended to keep drowsy truckers and bus drivers off our roadways and zero tolerance when it comes to driving while impaired.

Driver negligence can come in many dangerous varieties that include exhaustion, distraction, impairment, excess speed, and aggression. Distraction is a very common form of driver negligence, and one of the most dangerous forms of distraction is texting behind the wheel, which is becoming all too common. Driver negligence is often the impetus behind serious traffic accidents, and it represents – in every iteration – a breach of the motorist’s duty of care towards other drivers.

Traffic accidents are exceedingly dangerous accidents that are, all too often, deadly.

Common Injuries

Personal injury cases can involve nearly any kind of injury, but there are a few types that are overrepresented, including:

Broken Bones

A broken bone is an exceptionally painful injury that tends to be slow to heal. Further, when a broken bone heals badly, it can lead to chronic pain, a physical disability, and even to amputation.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can happen anywhere on the spine and can result in significant problems and pain. If the spinal cord is severed in the accident, the victim can suffer permanent paralysis.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

TBIs, because they affect the brain, are among the most serious and most unpredictable injuries. Victims of TBIs can experience significant issues, including problems concentrating, difficulty with speech and communication, and other cognitive problems. The overwhelmingly negative physical and emotional consequences of a serious TBI should never be discounted.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are some of the most excruciatingly painful injuries a person can endure. Burns can affect the underlying muscle, tendons, and even bone and can lead to life-threatening infections. The larger the area of the burn, the more dangerous, and even the healing process can lead to life-threatening secondary concerns, including a tightening of the burned area that constricts breathing. Finally, when a burn is on or near the face, it can be disfiguring.


Electrocution-related injuries often result in burns and also cause significant internal injuries as well.

Any one of these injuries can lead to extensive physical, financial, and emotional damages.

Your Damages

Your Damages

It’s important to carefully assess the full spectrum of damages you experience as a result of the accident that leads to your personal injury claim. To achieve your most complete recovery, you need to obtain just compensation, which is predicated on demonstrating the extent of the damages you’ve suffered. Consider the following categories of damage:

Medical Costs – Serious injuries often lead to secondary health concerns that elicit overarching medical expenses into your future. Experienced personal injury attorneys are practiced at predicting long-term medical costs and at ensuring these expenses are well represented in attendant personal injury claims.

Lost Hours and Earnings on the Job – If you’re saddled with a serious injury, you’ll likely be off the job for a considerable amount of time, which typically means a downturn in pay. If your injuries stop you from continuing to advance your career, you could also be facing a decrease in your earning potential into the future, which can add up to a lifetime of financial losses.

Pain and Suffering – While the physical pain and suffering associated with a serious injury are difficult to deny, it's more difficult to calculate the associated damages. To make things more complicated, there's also your emotional pain and suffering to consider, which can also be immense. Your pain and suffering can amount to a significant portion of your damages and should receive adequate attention in your personal injury claim.
