Car accident personal injury cases come in many shapes and sizes

When our readers think about personal injury cases, they may first think about a two-car collision that happens on a New York road and leads to serious injuries. While this scenario does happen quite a bit, personal injury cases that result from car accidents can come in many different forms.

For example, a personal injury claim may be brought as a result of a one-car accident. This may happen if a passenger is injured due to the negligent behavior of a driver. The driver may have been distracted when the vehicle crashed or may have even been intoxicated. The difficult part about these types of cases is that the two individuals in the vehicle may be friends or acquaintances. One-vehicle accidents can also happen if a hired driver is transporting passengers and ends up causing an accident due to negligent behavior.

It’s also important to remember that you don’t have to be severely injured in order to file a personal injury claim. Some victims may feel like their injuries are not severe enough to seek financial recompense. But the fact is, a seemingly minor injury may end up causing years of pain that may lead to years of physical therapy. For example, whiplash may seem like a minor injury at first and may not even be noticed right away. But with time, whiplash can lead to constant pain that may need to be treated with regular therapy sessions.

There is no perfect example of a personal injury claim. While you might feel as though you don’t have a valid reason to file a claim, it may be wise to discuss your case with an attorney to see if that is actually the case.
