Crush Injuries and Possible Complications

Crush Injuries and Possible Complications

Auto Accident
Severe crush injuries do not just impact the limb. This can even be a life-threatening injury and can have far-reaching ramifications. This could result in a larger settlement check when someone else is to blame for the accident. How Crush Injuries Happen Usually, crush injuries happen when a part of the body is caught between two heavy objects. This often results from vehicular crashes or work accidents. The body could be caught under the car before the victim is freed. Crush injuries happen when there is an extreme external force on the limbs or torso. This results in severe compression, which impacts the internal tissue. The problem is that the impact does not recede when the force goes away. Instead, it could result in necrosis and permanent damage to the…

Common Fatal Injuries

Common Fatal Injuries

Wrongful death
When people die in an accident, not much is known about the actual cause of death. It is important to know this for an accident lawsuit. Here are three common fatal injuries. Head Injuries Trauma and damage to the head are the most common causes of accident-related injuries. With a brain injury, the person can suffer a hematoma and bleeding on the brain.

This is one that could often be prevented with…

Señales de Conductores Intoxicados

Auto Accident
Conducir en estado de ebriedad es un factor en más de una cuarta parte de todas las muertes por accidentes de tránsito en los Estados Unidos. Si bien a menudo es difícil evitar a los conductores ebrios, aquí hay algunas señales de que un conductor puede estar ebrio. Diferencia de Velocidad Los conductores ebrios rara vez viajan cerca del límite de velocidad, ya que la percepción y los sentidos del conductor están sesgados por el alcohol. O viajan muy por encima del límite de velocidad o muy por debajo de él. Los Focos Están Apagados Encender los focos es una de las cosas básicas que debe hacer cuando enciende el automóvil. Excepto que no es así para alguien que está ebrio porque olvida incluso este simple paso. La mayoría de…

Debería Llamar al 911	Después de un Accidente	 Automovilístico?

Debería Llamar al 911 Después de un Accidente Automovilístico?

Auto Accident
Mucha gente nos pregunta si deben comunicarse con el 911 después de un accidente automovilístico. Nuestra respuesta es siempre sí. Hay dos razones principales para ello. La Policía Vendrá En realidad, quiere que la policía esté en la escena de cada accidente automovilístico. Una vez que sean llamados, emitirán un informe policial del accidente. Si bien esto no es admisible como prueba si su caso va a juicio, así es como se podría utilizar el informe policial: ● La compañía de seguros revisará el informe policial al determinar la responsabilidad. ● Si el otro conductor ha violado la ley, puede ser evidencia de negligencia. ● El informe policial puede identificar a los testigos que podrían ser llamados a declarar en el juicio. Además, desea que la policía esté en la…

Abril es el Mes de la Concientización sobre Conducción Distraída

Auto Accident
El problema de la conducción distraída sigue siendo tan grave que es necesaria una campaña pública de sensibilización. Esto sucede todos los años en abril, donde se realizan esfuerzos para educar al público sobre los peligros de conducir distraído. Este esfuerzo intenta enseñar a los conductores lo que sucede cuando apartan la vista del camino. Por supuesto, el ejemplo clásico de conducción distraída es cuando un automovilista lee su teléfono o envía un mensaje de texto mientras conduce. La verdad es que conducir distraído es mucho más que eso, incluso comer detrás del volante o participar en una conversación intensa puede distraer peligrosamente. Cualquier cosa que le impida concentrarse por completo mientras conduce un automóvil podría considerarse conducción distraída. Estadísticas sobre Conducción Distraída A continuación, presentamos algunas estadísticas alarmantes que…

Cuánto Vale su Reclamo	por	Accidente Automovilístico

Cuánto Vale su Reclamo por Accidente Automovilístico

Auto Accident
Esta es quizás la pregunta número uno que siempre nos hacen en una consulta inicial. La respuesta que generalmente damos es que debemos mirar más de cerca, pero debemos tener una buena idea de cuánto podría recibir cuando revisemos sus registros. Esto se debe a que su cheque de liquidación dependería de cuánto haya sufrido personalmente. Su indemnización por accidente automovilístico cubriría daños económicos y no económicos. Los daños económicos le devuelven el dinero que realmente perdió. Esto incluye cosas como: ● Salarios perdidos ● Facturas médicas ● Daños a su propiedad Los daños no económicos están destinados a pagarle por su experiencia. Esto incluiría cosas como dolor y sufrimiento, angustia emocional y pérdida del disfrute de la vida. Puede estar seguro de que la compañía de seguros tendrá una…
