Other Motor Vehicle Accidents

Atlanta Motor Vehicle Accident Attorneys Fighting for Injured Victims

Each year, hundreds of people are injured in trucking or passenger vehicle accidents. These accidents seems to be the most prevalent, but other motor vehicles are just as capable of injuring passengers, and when they do, victims need compensation to begin to put their lives back together. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, contact the team at Slappey & Sadd today.

Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

In addition to trucks and passenger vehicles, people can be injured when riding the following motor vehicles:

  • Airplanes
  • Trains
  • Buses

Accident victims suffer the same types of injuries as those injured in passenger vehicles: burns, lacerations, broken bones, infections, disfigurements, and brain injuries. Victims can quickly amass tens of thousands of dollars in medical care and often need to miss work because of intense pain or disability. Furthermore, their personal relationships may suffer as they sink into a deep depression or develop a fear of travelling in motor vehicles. For accident victims, nothing is ever the same.

What Information do I Need to Show my Lawyer?

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident, you should contact a personal injury attorney right away for a case evaluation and consultation. Prepare for the initial consultation by gathering the following information, which your lawyer will want to see:

  • The date of the motor vehicle accident
  • A copy of the police report (if you have one)
  • The names of every doctor, hospital, and clinic that treated you
  • Information about whether you have had medical tests done
  • Your initial prognosis
  • A record of prescription drugs you have been given
  • The names and contact information of any witnesses to the accident
  • A short narrative about what you remember
  • A list of your current symptoms, including whether you think they are improving

Your personal injury attorney will review this information to identify who to sue and figure out what additional information you will need to hold the motor vehicle operator responsible for your injuries.

What Compensation can I Receive?

Accident victims deserve fair compensation to defray the unjust costs caused by someone else’s mistakes. At Slappey & Sadd, our motor vehicle lawyers have obtained compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation services
  • Prescription drug costs
  • Therapy and other counseling
  • Lost wages
  • Lost future wages, if you’re disabled or cannot return to your current job
  • Pain and suffering
  • Changes to your relationship with your spouse or parents (“loss of consortium”)

Instead of bearing the financial burden of your accident, you can hold the real legally responsible party at fault and get the compensation you deserve.
