The most common injury from a car accident is whiplash.  Whiplash is a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck, like the cracking of a whip. Whiplash most often occurs during a rear-end auto accident but the injury can also result from a sports accident, physical abuse or other trauma. Usually, whiplash injuries can be treated through physical therapy or chiropractic care but some severe cases require surgery.

Legal Tip Property Damage:

Claims for vehicle damage are covered by your collision or comprehensive policy, if you have one. If another motorist is at fault in an accident, you may sue for property damage to your car regardless of whether you can sue for bodily injury.

Legal Tip Personal Injury Claim:

If another motorist is at fault in an accident, you may sue for personal injuries which are generally measured by your medical expenses and loss wages caused by the accident and an amount which may be determined by the jury for pain and suffering. Under special circumstances, other types of damages may be recoverable.

Legal Tip Car Accident:

Did you know med-pay coverage on your automobile covers the named insured, resident spouse, and any resident relative while occupying the covered vehicle, and any other person legally occupying the automobile?
