Here’s everything you need to know.

Although most car accidents aren’t fatal, just about any type can result in vehicle damage and lasting injuries. If you have been the victim in an RTA, you owe it to yourself to contact an RTA Advocate at Lion Law.

What are the Most Common RTA Injuries?

  • Injuries RTA injuries, no matter how mild or severe, can be traumatic. The victim might suffer not only from physical pain but also mental anguish in the form of anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress. Millions of Indians are harmed in RTA every year. Some of these injuries are resolved quickly with little or no medical treatment, while others lead to serious and lasting ailments. Here are some of the most common auto accident injuries in India.
  • Cuts & Scrapes During a collision, any loose items — mobile phones, cups, eyeglasses, or books, to name a few — can become projectiles capable of cutting or scraping your skin. In some cases, these wounds are minor and do not require medical treatment. In other cases, they can cause blood loss and require stitches.
  • Head Injuries Head injuries can be the result of an impact on the steering wheel, dashboard, window, or seat. They take many forms, from bruises and lacerations to concussions and traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBI, which often stems from side-impact crashes, can cause temporary or permanent brain function impairment, nerve damage, and skull fractures.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries Injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons are common in car accidents. One notable type of soft-tissue injury is whiplash, in which the neck is forcefully and rapidly jarred forward and back. This trauma is typically seen in rear-end collisions.
  • Limb Injuries In a side-impact collision, your arms and legs can be thrown against the door, dashboard, or seat in front of you with tremendous force. Depending on the speed and severity of the crash, injuries can range from scrapes and bruises to sprains and breaks.
  • Chest Injuries Chest injuries can take the form of bruises and contusions. In more severe instances, they may involve broken ribs.

RTA Lawsuits

What is the claim value? It depends on your injury and without a review of your claim, compensation, or out of pocket expenses and any possible ongoing losses or costs that you may suffer. You will need to undergo an expert medical examination to establish the extent and nature of your injuries, even if you have seen your own doctor or been to the hospital.

Economic damages are financial losses caused by the injury. They include past and future medical bills, lost income, and reduced earning capacity.

Non-Economic damages provide the victim compensation for non monetary losses associated with the injury, including pain and suffering and emotional distress.
