Filing a personal injury lawsuit is often the most effective way to secure compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and other damages caused by a car accident. Proving to the insurance company that the other driver was at fault and therefore liable for all of your damages is not easy, though. 

Civil cases like car accident claims require you to prove your case by providing a preponderance of the evidence. This is different than the proof requirements in a criminal case, which must be beyond a reasonable doubt. A preponderance of the evidence simply means that you must demonstrate that your claim is more likely true than not.

At Golden Law Office, we regularly meet with car accident victims hoping to recover the financial expenses they were unfairly saddled with after an accident caused by another motorist. One of the questions that frequently arises is: What’s the average settlement for whiplash injuries?

Below, we’ll take a more in-depth look at the cost of treating a whiplash injury and what accident victims can expect to recover in the average settlement. We advise you to take in this information with the understanding that every person’s case is different.

Any bump, sudden back and forth movement, jolt, or blow to the head has the potential to cause a concussion. While many concussion symptoms subside in the days and weeks following injury, the impact may last much longer for some victims.

Why Is It Important To Take Photos After a Car Crash
When you’ve been injured in an accident through no fault of your own, you can recover compensation for your damages via a personal injury claim. Proving that the accident wasn’t your fault can be a challenge when the insurance company is disputing your claim at every turn, though. Pictures can paint a clear picture of facts that are in dispute, which is why it is important to take photos after a car crash.

At Golden Law Office, we advise car accident victims to take more pictures than they think they will need. Take both vertical and landscape photos. Use flash sparingly and only when needed, as your phone’s light may create glares that obscure important information.
