Most people seeking compensation for injuries resulting from an improper lane change accident seek to hold the driver who caused the accident accountable. In order to do so, you will need to prove he/she was negligent or careless. It may be clear to you that the driver made an improper lane change, which ultimately led to the collision.
However, there is no stopping the driver from refuting your claims. If the driver denies liability or the insurance company believes you played a role in causing the accident, it could affect your ability to recover the compensation that you deserve for the injuries and damages you have suffered.
A Staten Island improper lane change accident lawyer can work diligently to gather the evidence you need to prove your case against the other driver and obtain a fair award or settlement to fairly compensate you for your injuries and damages.
Compensable Injuries that You May Have Suffered in Your Accident
If another driver or drivers are liable for causing the accident, you may be entitled to recover compensation for the injuries you suffered. Some examples of compensable injuries include:
Depending on the area that was fractured and the severity of the injury, an individual could suffer short-term and long-term effects. Fractures not only affect a person’s mobility, but it could potentially interfere with their ability to work and may prevent them from pursuing or advancing in their career.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a brain injury could affect a person’s thinking, sensation, language, and emotions. Depending on how severe the injury is, an individual who suffered a brain injury in an improper lane change accident may no longer be able to care for themselves or their loved ones and may not be able to continue working.
Spinal Injuries, Including Neck and Back Injuries
Injuries to the spine involving the neck and back can make getting through each day difficult, especially if the pain is unbearable and chronic. These injuries may require extensive medical treatment and surgical repair.
Joint Injuries Involving Tears of Ligaments, Tendons, and Cartilage
Injuries involving tears of ligaments, tendons, and/or cartilage often require surgical repair and extensive physical therapy.
Disfiguring Scarring and Facial Injuries
Injuries involving disfiguring scarring and facial injuries are costly to treat, and they can have psychological effects on a victim when the injury resulted in permanent disfigurement or scarring.
