Car accidents put the human body through unnatural impacts we were simply not meant to endure. For even an accident that seems “minor”, the physics of speed, mass, and force can result in serious injury. Unfortunately, a lot of people carry misconceptions about personal injury claims.
Based on commercials and television, there is a commonly held belief that a car accident or injury has to be “extreme” to have a claim for damages. We have heard people say things like: “I don’t have visible injuries”, “I’m not injured enough”, or “I walked away from the car crash.” They say this with the belief that they have no basis for a personal injury claim. As personal injury attorneys who have recovered millions of dollars in damages for our clients, we would urge you not to underestimate your potential personal injury claim.
You May Have a Claim for Personal Injury Damages
The truth is that no personal injury claim is the same as the next. To successfully recover personal injury damages, there is no requirement that a car accident results in mangled wreckage, of what an accident looks like, the type of injury suffered, or that an injury is visible. Nevada’s personal injury laws allow victims to seek various types of damages against people or companies whose negligence caused the car crash. These damages can include:
- Medical bills resulting from the injury, including hospitalization, doctor’s visits, medical procedures, and physical therapy.
- Lost wages as a result of missing work and lost future earnings.
- Pain and suffering due to the injury.
Even a relatively light impact can result in neck or spine injuries that cause you to miss work, to require expensive medical care or physical therapy, or even suffer long-term harm. Don’t let misconceptions about car accidents and injuries allow you to sell yourself short. Speak with an attorney, who can help you explore whether you have a viable claim for damages.
