Pinecrest Car Accident Lawyer

At Spencer Morgan Law, our Pinecrest car accident lawyer works hard every day to obtain the compensation you need and deserve. This compensation usually includes money for economic losses, such as medical bills, and noneconomic losses, such as pain and suffering.

Victims need this compensation to pay accident related medical bills, as discussed below, and to pay other accident-related expenses. Victims deserve this compensation because, if the injuries were the tortfeasor’s (negligent driver’s) fault, that person, or perhaps a third party, should be financially responsible for them

Pinecrest Car Accident Lawyers and Car Crash Injuries

Before the coronavirus pandemic, the number of fatal car crashes had been trending down. But that figure shot up in 2020 and again in 2021 and 2022. Drivers picked up some bad habits when roads emptied during lockdowns, such as driving drunk and speeding excessively. These habits, like so many other bad habits, were easy to form and hard to break.

The number of fatal crashes has increased, as has the number and severity of car accident injuries. Some of these serious injuries include:

  • Head Injuries: Airbags and other restraint systems absorb much of the force in a car wreck, but they do not alter the motion of a car wreck. When a victim’s head violently moves forwards and backwards, the motion usually damages nerves in the cervical spine and causes whiplash, or the motion slams the brain against the skull, causing a traumatic brain injury. Many unfortunate victims sustain both these injuries.
  • Broken Bones: Restraint systems do not protect the legs and arms. Usually, these limbs flail wildly and strike a solid object, like the dashboard. Since doctors must use metal parts, like pins and screws, to reconstruct these bones, physical therapy is longer, more difficult, and more expensive.
  • Internal Injuries: Car crashes cause major head injuries and broken bones, but in many cases, they cause small abrasions on kidney, livers, and other internal organs. However since these organs do not have protective skin layers, they usually bleed badly. In fact, many victims lose about a fourth of their blood supplies before they see doctors.

A Pinecrest car accident lawyer connects victims with doctors who know how to diagnose and treat collision-related injuries. As a bonus, these doctors usually charge nothing upfront. So, victims get the treatment they need when they need it.

Liability Issues

Medical bills and other accident-related expenses must be paid eventually. Compensation is available if a victim proves negligence, or a lack of care, by a preponderance of the evidence, or more likely than not.

Evidence in a car crash claim usually includes witness statements, medical bills, and the police accident report. However, in many cases, this minimal evidence yields minimal results. Maximum compensation is only available if a Pinecrest car accident lawyer goes the extra mile and anticipates, and deals with, insurance company defenses.

In some cases, a third party is financially responsible for damages, as mentioned above. Dram shop liability, which usually applies in alcohol-related crash claims, is a good example. Commercial providers, such as restaurants and bars, are vicariously liable for car crash and other damages if they knowingly sell alcohol to a person who is habitually addicted to alcohol, and that person causes a car wreck.
