Cuts and Bruises May Indicate More Serious Injuries
When a person suffers injuries in an accident in Warner Robins, Peach County, or Houston County, our team encourages them to see a doctor as soon as possible to have their injuries assessed and addressed. There are several ways to do this:
● Ride with first responders in an ambulance to the hospital.
● Go to an emergency department for evaluation on your own.
● See your doctor as soon as possible.
● Visit a walk-in clinic or urgent care clinic for evaluation and wound cleaning.
Getting a medical evaluation, treatment, or clearance as soon as possible is important for two reasons:
● It links your injuries to the traffic accident for insurance purposes.
● It can uncover additional injuries that are not immediately obvious.
Contusions May Indicate Internal Injuries
Contusions, or bruises, may indicate much more serious injuries than they appear. They may be a sign of internal bleeding, especially when they are on the torso or head. For that reason, it is important to get any significant bleeding evaluated.
Lacerations May Require Additional Care
Lacerations, or cuts, may require stitches, staples, glue, or another type of closure to heal properly. Cuts on the face, neck, hands, or other visible areas may heal with less visible scarring if they are stitched quickly following the accident by a surgeon.
Lacerations can also get infected quickly, and this may become life-threatening. The best way to prevent infection is to have a medical professional flush and clean the wound before bandaging it for you.
If you see a doctor following an accident caused by another driver, you can likely recover the cost of the visit and your other expenses by filing an insurance claim. You can learn more about your case for compensation by talking to Bader Scott Injury Lawyers about your accident today.

Let Our Team Build a Case Against the At-Fault Motorist
If our team represents you following your accident, a Warner Robins contusions and lacerations lawyer from Bader Scott Injury Lawyers will help you prove your case and hold the at-fault driver liable for your damages. This requires us to prove negligence through:
● Determining who, what, and why the accident occurred
● Working with accident reconstruction experts if necessary
● Assigning liability and identifying the insurance policy
● Preparing and filing an insurance claim
It may be more difficult to assign liability and prove negligence in some cases than in others. Fault may also be shared in some accident cases. If the insurance company denies their policyholder caused the accident, accuses you of sharing in causing the collision, or refuses to offer a settlement that fairly compensates you for your losses, it may be necessary to pursue a legal case in civil court. Our team of trial lawyers can file a personal injury lawsuit in the appropriate jurisdiction and represent your interests to the judge and jury.

Securing Damages in a Warner Robins Traffic Accident Case
Bader Scott Injury Lawyers seeks to secure a financial recovery for our clients based on the injuries, expenses, and losses they experienced because of an accident. Even when injuries are relatively minor, medical evaluation and treatment can be expensive. In addition, there are other losses to consider. This includes:
● Any expenses related to your medical care
● Time missed at work for your medical evaluation and because of your injuries
● Vehicle repairs and other property damages
● Other expenses related to your accident
● Pain and suffering injuries
● Other intangible losses
In the event of serious internal injuries or a systemic infection that becomes life-threatening, car accident victims can pass away from contusions and lacerations. If this occurs, certain family members may qualify to pursue wrongful death damages under O.C.G.A §51-4-2.
Statute of Limitations on Filing a Civil Suit in Houston or Peach County
If we need to file a personal injury lawsuit in a Houston County or Peach County civil court in your case, we only have a limited time to do so. Under O.C.G.A §9-3-33, Georgia law only allows us up to two years to begin the process of taking a car accident case to trial. We must file the initial paperwork before the deadline and name the at-fault driver as the defendant.
Missing the time limit set by the statute of limitations will likely mean losing the right to take the case to trial. This will make it difficult or impossible to recover a fair payout in your case.
