Whether you’re traveling on highways or through town, it’s always important to remain cautious and focused on the task at hand. But when people are in a rush or thinking about the errand they’re running or what they need to do once they get to their destination, they can make mistakes while they’re behind the wheel. Failing to signal, speeding, and looking at their cell phones are all examples of negligence that can lead to auto collisions. These accidents can cause terrible injuries, but victims of the accident can seek compensation. A Greenbelt car accident lawyer from Belsky & Horowitz, LLC will stand by your side and assist you in recovering the losses you incurred.
Fatal Greenbelt Car Accident
Greenbelt has seen its fair share of accidents. A multi-vehicle crash on Greenbelt Road caused one fatality and placed seven people in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. A car was involved with a rear-end collision and hit a minivan, which in turn struck a bus. The driver of the car that hit the minivan passed away at the scene.
These accidents show how many people can be affected in a collision. When a car hits another, both drivers will have reduced control of their vehicles. If they’re in traffic or are in close proximity to other vehicles, such as when you’re stopped at a traffic light, the crash’s impact can make you hit other vehicles and injure other people as well.
How Can Your Injuries Affect Your Life?
Car accidents may result in devastating injuries. Your injuries could range from minor to severe. You may have injuries that will heal with time and physical therapy, but you could also have injuries that will limit your range of motion or cause chronic pain for the rest of your life.
The best thing you can do for your claim is to get to a doctor as soon as possible. They’ll give you a medical evaluation where you will learn the extent of your injuries. You can start treating your injuries and you’ll have a record of needing to see a doctor after the accident, which will be helpful to your case.
Waiting to see a doctor could put your chances of getting maximum compensation in jeopardy. If you waited to see a doctor and your injuries progressed, you may only be able to recover for the injuries the accident initially caused. This could put you in a financially difficult situation later. To avoid situations like this, reaching out to reputable Greenbelt car accident attorneys will ensure you protect your rights and your claim.
The Advantages of Having a Car Accident Attorney
Car accident cases may be more complex than you’d think. After your wreck, you may get the impression from the other driver that they’re apologetic because they were at fault for the accident. However, when you’re moving forward with the legal process, they may not be so forthright. This is why it’s imperative to have a personal injury lawyer on your side.
The lawyers at Belsky & Horowitz, LLC are all experienced and skilled representatives who have helped personal injury victims with the legal process. Our lawyers know that to build you a successful case, we need to find evidence that the other party acted negligently, their actions caused this crash, and your injuries were a result of the accident.
As we look at your case, we’ll conduct a full investigation. This will include reviewing police reports and interviewing eyewitnesses. Accident reconstruction specialists will also review your accident and can provide insight into what happened. We’ll find all the crucial details to clearly present how you were a victim in this situation.
Our lawyers also gather evidence of how your injuries have affected your life. Reviewing copies of your medical records, treatment, what the injuries have cost you in the past and will continue to cost you in the future, as well as the work you’ve missed and will still need to miss. Damages such as these are considered economic and have a dollar amount assigned to them. However, our attorneys also take other damages into account, called noneconomic damages. Your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life are possible outcomes of your accident and you deserve compensation for having to suffer through painful outcomes. We’ll review how extensive your noneconomic damages are and how they’ll continue to affect your life and take that into consideration when determining compensation.
