Back trauma is a common injury that occurs following a car accident. However, what many people may not realize is these injuries can be incredibly debilitating, emotionally distressing, and result in astronomical medical bills. That is why following a motor vehicle collision, those suffering a back injury need to obtain the compensation necessary to cover these costs and help them get back on their feet. Unfortunately, proving fault after a car crash and showing the connection between a back injury and the accident is not easy.

For these reasons, we have prepared the following post. Below, we will go over some of these challenges, discuss the evidence needed to show this connection, and explain how an experienced car accident lawyer can help you take on this fight and go after the damages you are entitled to.

Building a Strong Case – Evidence Needed to Prove Back Injuries from Car Accidents

Following a car accident, compensation is not guaranteed. To get paid for the back injuries you suffered, you need to show that the motor vehicle collision caused these injuries. However, most car accident victims have no idea where to even start when it comes to gathering this proof.

It’s also essential to understand the various factors that can contribute to car accidents. For instance, navigating through Nevada’s dangerous roads can be a challenge for many drivers. Additionally, large vehicles like trucks require specific safety measures to prevent mishaps. Moreover, young drivers, who are often inexperienced, can benefit from safety tips tailored for teens to ensure they drive responsibly.

Fortunately, when you work with an experienced car accident attorney, you will not have to worry about handling this investigation alone. These lawyers can help you gather the evidence required to prove your claim and get the money you need, including:

  • Past Medical Records: Your attorney can gather your past medical records to show your back history. If you never complained about back pain or back issues, it can make your case stronger.
  • Current Medical Records: To collect damages for your injuries, you will need to show that there is a direct connection between the car accident and your back injury. One way to show this is through medical records related to your injury. Your attorney can gather all these documents and make sure these records are consistent and support your claim.
  • Review Medical Images: MRIs and X-rays are critical in showing the extent of your back injuries, such as whether there is a fractured vertebra or a disc injury. Once these tests help clarify the scope of the harm you sustained and provide a correct diagnosis of your back injury, the attorney can show how this injury transpired.
  • A Doctor’s Evaluation: A medical professional’s opinion of your back trauma can go a long way in a legal claim. That is why attorneys will often try to get the doctor’s analysis of the injury and show how it is linked to the accident and not due to some other underlying cause, such as arthritis.
  • Documentation From the Scene: It will be harder for the other side to believe your injuries resulted from a car crash if there is no evidence of other damages from the car accident. For example, if there is not even a bump on your motor vehicle, it will be less believable that you suffered a debilitating back injury. As a result, your attorney will try to gather documents from the crash scene that can help show the extent of your back injury.

How You Can Help Your Case – Tips from a Car Accident Lawyer

Typically, the scene of a car accident is stressful and overwhelming for everyone involved. As a victim of this crash, the last thing on your mind is thinking about what actions you are supposed to take. However, it is important to understand that these steps can not only keep you safe but protect your legal rights as well. For these reasons, after a motor vehicle accident, you should consider doing the following:

Contacting the Authorities – Why it’s Important After a Car Crash?

You will want to call 911 immediately after your accident. This is the fastest way to alert the police of the collision, notify emergency medical personnel that you need medical help, and get your accident on record.

Once the authorities arrive, they can perform a preliminary investigation of the accident and write down their findings in their police report. If you decide to file a legal claim, this report can provide your attorney with helpful information about what happened and who was at fault.

Obtaining Evidence from the Crash Scene – What to Look for to Strengthen Your Case

If it is possible, you should try to gather as much evidence from the scene as you can, including pictures of the cars involved, their placement on the road, your visible injuries, skid marks on the street, traffic signs near the accident, and any other evidence that can help show what happened.

Talking to Witnesses – How Eyewitness Testimonies Can Help Prove Your Back Injury Claim

If people at the accident scene saw what happened, try to get their names and contact information. Their statements can provide your lawyer with helpful details about the incident, as well as back up your claim. However, if these individuals do not want to give you their personal information, do not try to force them. Instead, leave this information gathering to your attorney.
