Common Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries run the gamut, from those that will eventually heal to those leaving permanent disability in their wake. Catastrophic injuries are severe injuries, generally to the head or spine, which can leave a person incapacitated and no longer capable of working or living independently. Common car accident injuries include:

  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Internal organ damage
  • Loss of limbs
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash

What to do After a Car Accident

The immediate aftermath of a car accident is a trying time, but if possible, collect as much evidence as possible. That means using your smartphone to photograph or video the accident scene, as well as making a record of your injuries. Get the insurance particulars and the contact information of the other driver—as well as any witnesses or passengers in the affected vehicles. Write down or record your memories of the accident immediately while it is still fresh in your mind. Of course, report the accident to local law enforcement or the State Police at once.

Always seek medical attention after an auto accident, even if you do not think your injuries are serious. Failure to do so can harm your claim, as the other driver’s insurance company may argue you were not badly hurt or that some other misfortune caused your injuries.

Do not agree to any insurance settlement before obtaining legal counsel.

Every state limits the amount of time in which a person can file a personal injury lawsuit for car accident injuries, and in Virginia, this statute of limitations for most injury cases is two years from the date of the accident. If a person dies from their injuries, the personal representative of the estate has a limited amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

If the accident involves a government vehicle, whether on the municipal, county, state, or federal level, the statute of limitations is much shorter, often a matter of three to six months.

Working with Poquoson car accident lawyers as soon as possible is critical. An investigation should start promptly before evidence disappears and the memories of witnesses begin to fade.

Damages, or compensation, in a Virginia car accident may include:

  • Medical expenses, present, and future
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress

What I loved about my Rutter Mills experience was the team approach they provided from start to finish. The paralegal Selena D. was always keeping me updated and accurately collecting information to make sure my case was on a strong foundation. My attorney, Adam Lotkin raises the bar to the highest standard. Adam's knowledge, experience, and grit afforded me the strongest settlement in my case. Top 1% settlement is the best way to describe it. Your attorney matters and I am so glad I choose Rutter Mills, Adam Lotkin, and team to represent my case. I will use Rutter Mills again for my future needs.

Rutter Mills did exactly what I needed. Took all the pressure off of me, negotiated a fair settlement, and treated me royally in the process. At a low point in my mood, they even sent me cookies! My attorney Mr Boran, Kathy, Julie and the rest made a bad situation as painless as possible. I feel lucky to have chosen them after my accident. Thanks Rutter Mills team

Firm is solid, professional, and they care about their clients. Mr. Porcaro and his assistant are awesome. They have your best interest at heart. They really want you to be treated fairly and that is invaluable. They are professionals and I give them both 5 stars out of 5. Win or lose they battle for fairness, and for your best interest, and that is what it is about.

I was hit from behind while sitting at a stoplight . The other insurance company kept dragging their feet and trying to minimize the damage that was done and the medical issues I had after the accident. Gina Montgomery was a joy to work with. She kept me posted on what was going on with my case. She asked for my opinion on how I wanted to handle things during the case. She even took the time to pull me aside during the deposition when she saw me getting upset at the other lawyer trying to trick me. At first, I did not plan to contact a lawyer. I definitely did not think I had a Rutter Mills case. But I'm so glad I called them.

My experience dealing with Rutter Mills was amazing! Gina Montgomery and Adam Lotkin answered every question and made sure I had a clear understanding of everything. They are hardworking individuals that will get every detail down in court! I would definitely recommend them to any and everyone! It was a blessing working with them and if I ever need them in the future, they will be the lawyers I'd call!
