What Is the Difference Between Crashworthiness Injuries and Injuries Caused by the Accident Itself?

Injuries caused by a car’s crashworthiness are compensated separately from those caused by the accident itself. You can sue the driver at fault for compensation for your injuries, and you can also sue the manufacturer of the car or car part showing that the defect caused or exacerbated your injuries.

Injuries caused by a vehicle's crashworthiness are considered and compensated apart from the injuries that were caused by the accident itself. The distinction can be a little difficult, especially when it comes to medical proof of the extent of an enhanced injury beyond the "expected" injury. We provide our clients with a free initial case evaluation. If you do have consistent evidence for a claim, we will further analyze the details of the case and gather additional proofs.

Once we received initial documents needed, including: copy of the accident report, documents regarding the purchase of the vehicle or the tires, pictures taken at the scene of the accident and copy of your medical records, we will file the claim on your behalf and negotiate a fair settlement or take your case to court if liable parties refuse to settle.

We will guide you every step of the way, dealing with the legal and insurance complexities, providing helpful advice and easing your mind, so you can focus on your recovery. Cases like these require you to seek legal advice straight from the start in order to be successful and receive just compensation for your injuries.
