Types of Auto Accident Injuries
Car accidents can cause a wide range of serious injuries, but some of the most common types include:
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury
- Broken bones and fractures
- Burn injury
- Chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
Distracted driving, drunk driving, speeding, and even defective vehicles can all contribute to a car accident. If we accept your case, we will work with a team of investigators to thoroughly investigate the wreck, gathering the evidence you need to not only prove the other party's fault, but also to demonstrate the impact that your injuries have had (and will have) on your life.
Liability in Car Accidents
In some auto accident cases, liability is easy to determine. For example, drunk drivers are almost always at fault for a car accident. Similarly, if you have been rear-ended, the car behind you is usually considered the liable party by default. However, other cases can be more complex and difficult to prove, especially if the other driver contests your version of events - or if an insurance company downplays the severity of your injuries.
With our experienced Miami injury attorneys on your side, you can trust that your rights will be protected during every stage of your case. Attorney John H. (Jack) Hickey was once a lawyer for insurance companies, and his experience working for "the other side" has given him unique insight into the tactics that insurance companies use to underpay victims. He can help you negotiate for the full amount of damages you are entitled to - and as a board-certified trial lawyer, he is prepared to take your case as far as it needs to go if a settlement cannot be reached.
What to Do After a Car Accident
If you have been involved in a serious car accident, it is important to gather appropriate evidence in order to maximize your chances of obtaining compensation. Always collect contact information from every party involved in the accident, including:
- Names and addresses
- Driver's license numbers
- Insurance policy information
- Phone numbers
- License plate numbers
Also be sure to collect phone numbers and names from any witnesses at the scene.
If you are unable to take pictures of the accident yourself, have a friend or family member do so on your behalf. Pictures really are worth "a thousand words" in a personal injury case. Be sure to include photos of the damage to your vehicle (from multiple angles), any visible injuries, tire marks, road conditions, and more. We can provide you with the advice and experience you need to effectively pursue the compensation you deserve.
