You might feel like you are an extremely careful driver, rarely exceeding the speed limit and never looking at your smartphone when you are behind the wheel. By obeying traffic laws and driving safely at all times, you can often reduce your chances of being involved in a car crash.
However, your chances never become zero, no matter how safely you drive, because you cannot control the actions of other drivers on the roads.

If this happened to you, a Johns Creek car accident lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to help you recover a fair settlement that reflects your injuries and your health outlook going forward. We handle both insurance claims and personal injury lawsuits.

Evidence in a Car Crash Case
A key component in winning a favorable settlement in a personal injury case after a car accident may be showing that the other driver was acting in a reckless or negligent manner behind the wheel. If a police officer who investigated the crash gave the other driver a traffic ticket, this may be used as evidence in your case.
However, even if the police decided not to issue traffic tickets in the crash, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to collect evidence to document the responsible party’s negligence.
This may include:
- Photos, videos, or the police report from the accident scene
- Witness statements
- Your medical records
- Testimony from accident reconstruction experts
- And more.

Car Accident Injuries
After a car accident, you may have some symptoms that you find strange. Perhaps you are having a headache or blurred vision, even though you do not believe you hit your head on the steering wheel.
If you have symptoms like there, you may have a traumatic brain injury (TBI) related to the accident. All head injuries are extremely serious, and they could significantly affect your long term health outlook.
According to Cleveland Clinic, as many as one million people in the U.S. suffer minor TBIs every year. TBIs are responsible for about 230,000 hospitalizations in the U.S. annually, and nearly 100,000 of those people never fully recover from the TBI.
Other car accident injuries may include:
- Bruises, cuts, or crapes
- Burns or contusions
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Spinal cord injuries
- Airbag impact injuries
- And more
You should see a doctor as soon after the accident as possible. Even though you may feel fine after the crash, the adrenaline in your body may hide some of the pain and injuries you could have.
If you choose to decline a ride to the hospital in an ambulance after the crash, you still have the right to visit a doctor the next day or a few days later to have your injuries documented and to have a treatment plan laid out to help you recover. Only a doctor can determine your exact level of injury, and having this documentation may be important if you file a personal injury lawsuit.
Recoverable Damages in a Car Accident Case
Depending on the nature of your accident and injuries, you may be able to recover damages such as:
- All costs of accident-related medical care, both current and future
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capability
- Pain and suffering
- And more
