Accidents that Cause Soft Tissue Injuries and Whiplash
While broken bones and traumatic brain injuries are certainly debilitating, less serious injuries such as whiplash and various soft tissue injuries can cause you a great deal of pain while also resulting in missed time and wages. There are many types of accidents that can contribute to these types of injuries.
Whiplash is most commonly associated with car accidents, as the sudden impact can cause your neck to violently snap forward. Since car accidents can take place in a variety of different situations, they can also lead to sprains, strains, and contusions.
Slips and falls are also common causes of injury, and landing awkwardly may result whiplash and soft tissue injuries. Injuries such as these can also occur as a result of faulty products and injuries on the job. While these injuries may not be as severe as broken bones or spine injuries, they should still be addressed immediately.
If you’ve suffered any type of injury due to someone else’s carelessness, you have the right to seek compensation for medical bills and lost wages. Our attorneys are dedicated to helping you overcome your obstacle and will diligently seek justice on your behalf.
What do I do if I’ve been Injured by a Negligent Party?
If you’ve been injured, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. It’s understandable to be annoyed and even aggravated at those responsible, but your health is your number one priority. After you’ve visited the hospital, be sure to obtain a copy of your medical records, as they will help you if your case goes to court. If you’re healthy enough to do so, take pictures of the scene as soon as possible in order to collect evidence for your claim. If witnesses were present, speak to them and take down their information. You should also notify the negligent party that you were injured on their property or as a result of their carelessness, and that you plan on filing a personal injury claim. Visit our visit to speak with us and determine whether you have a plausible case.
Preparing for your Morris County personal injury deposition
You may be required to participate in a deposition as part of your case. Depositions typically occur outside of the courtroom and give each side a chance to learn everything they need to know about the other party.
Here are some examples of deposition questions you may be asked:
- What were you doing at the time of the accident and where were you going?
- Was anyone with you at the time of the accident?
- What injuries did you sustain?
- Have you filed any lawsuits or legal claims before?
- What is your medical and accident history?
- Do you have a criminal record?
- Do you have any impairment because of the accident?
- What is your employment history?
- Did you file any insurance claims because of the accident?
- Were you obeying all traffic, pedestrian, and other laws during the time of the accident?
This is just a sampling of the types of questions that may be asked. There is no need to be nervous about being deposed — your personal injury lawyer at Aiello, Harris, Marth, Tunnero & Schiffman, P.C. will thoroughly prepare you for your deposition beforehand.
