Even if you are a safe driver and take all necessary care and precautions on the road, you cannot control the actions of other drivers and you are still at risk of being involved in a serious auto accident. Collisions generally occur when you least expect them and no one can truly be prepared for a crash on the road. Not only are auto accidents highly stressful but they can also cause devastating physical injuries and financial losses for victims. It is understandable that many victims do not know where to turn for help or how to go about beginning to seek compensation from the party that caused the accident.
Tanzillo Stassin & Babcock, P.C. represents injured car accident victims in and around Munster and Northwest Indiana. We can guide you through the aftermath of an auto accident and help you receive the compensation you need to cover all of your losses.
In order to have a valid claim following an auto accident, you must be able to prove that another person or party was negligent in causing the collision. Many different parties can be negligent including other drivers, car manufacturers, government entities, and more. In addition, acts of negligence that cause accidents can be extremely varied and often difficult to identify and prove. Some examples of negligence in auto accident cases can include:
The evidence needed to prove negligence will vary depending on the type of negligence that occurred. An investigation may be necessary to identify negligence and gather evidence to support your claims.
Auto accident injuries can range from relatively minor bumps and bruises to severe and life-threatening conditions that may leave victims with permanent disabilities. Some common injuries that we see after auto accidents include:
Following an accident, you should always undergo a medical evaluation. Even if your injuries are not obvious right away, they may develop and worsen over time and a diagnosis is key in obtaining compensation for your medical bills and other losses.
