Four At-the-Scene Tips for Your Car Accident Client
Nontraffic crashes include back-over crashes and single-vehicle crashes that did not occur on a national highway. An estimated 98,000 injuries occur in nontraffic crashes on private roads, collisions with pedestrians on driveways, and two-vehicle crashes in parking facilities, the report said, while 743,000 injuries happened from noncrash incidents like hyperthermia and electrocution. Unfortunately, accidents that happen while the car is parked or immobile are not covered by auto insurance, according to Sam Belden, vice president of Insurance.com. The short answer is that if someone is driving, its covered, Belden says. Its a pretty blanket statement. Second on the list is overexertion, causing 88,000 injuries annually. The category includes loading and unloading cargo or pushing a disabled vehicle.

Cohasset train versus car accident: no injuries
Even if the client thinks they are indeed at fault, there may have been unseen factors that contributed to the collision. Even a simple Im sorry could put their case at risk. Additionally, the client must not sign or agree to anything before speaking to you, the lawyer. They should not speak to the other drivers insurance agency, sign any forms or paperwork, or agree to meet at another location to sort out the details. All of these situations could potentially be dangerous to the client and to the validity of their case. 3. Gather Information While making notes about the accident was more of a subjective exercise, the client also needs to record some cold hard facts. Besides the usual required information like the other drivers insurance information, VIN, and contact information, your client should also gather the contact information of any witnesses and passengers. Be as detailed as even getting the name and identification number of any officers that arrive at the scene, especially the officer that fills out and files the accident report. This information is vital if there seem to be any discrepancies between the report and what actually happened at the scene. 4. Go to the Hospital This may sound a little dramatic, but if a client feels at all injured or shaken up from the accident, he or she should immediately visit a doctor, hospital, or urgent care center to get checked out. If you are not taken by ambulance because the injuries arent severe, the client should still take himself or have a friend drive.

Herniated disc injuries one risk after car accidents
Of these sorts of injuries, herniated discs can be particularly painful and may require surgery and rehabilitation. The vertebrae in the human spine are cushioned by small pads of tissue known as intervertebral discs. These discs have a tough outer layer, known as the annulus fibrosus, which contains a soft, jelly-like material known as the nucleus pulposus. Disc herniation occurs when the outer layer of the disc is broken, causing some of the softer material to bulge out. The herniation itself may not hurt, but it can place pressure on the nerves of the spinal cord, which can cause not only severe pain, but also numbness and weakness in the legs. In most cases, the best way to diagnose a herniated disc is a magnetic resonance imaging scan. An MRI scan can provide doctors with a clear view of soft tissues and can confirm a diagnosis. In some cases, those who have suffered a herniated disc can heal on their own in about six months. Doctors will typically prescribe treatment for pain or other discomfort and may recommend a physical therapy regimen to help restore and improve flexibility of the spine. In other cases, however, the disc is unable to heal on its own and surgery may be necessary. Doctors typically recommend surgery for those patients who have suffered severe damage to their nerves or those who experience significant weakness in their limbs.
