Car accidents happen when you least expect them. While living through an accident is bad enough, a serious accident frequently leaves victims with severe injuries, mounting medical bills, emotional trauma, and a great deal of uncertainty. If you or someone you love has recently sustained injuries in a car accident, we recommend contacting a local lawyer as soon as possible.

As you are seeking the financial resources you need to recover from your injuries, the insurance companies are looking for ways to deny your claim and avoid responsibility. They are doing everything in their power to protect their bottom line, which often comes at the expense of your health and well-being. 

At Nicolet Law Office, our compassionate lawyers believe accident victims should not have to battle the insurance companies on their own. We work tirelessly to secure the maximum compensation available for our clients, including resources to cover lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.

What to Do After a Car Accident in River Falls

If you or someone you love is in a car accident, the first thing to do is call law enforcement. Contacting the authorities is especially crucial if anyone is injured, since the police can help assess medical needs and request emergency medical services. 

In addition, law enforcement typically takes witness statements and photographs at the scene. When you call the authorities, you can provide the resulting police report to your insurance later on. This report serves as tangible support for your claim. 

Move damaged vehicles off the road, if possible. Stalled or unoccupied cars pose a danger to approaching vehicles, so it is best to pull off as far from the main road as you can. And before leaving the scene, be sure to exchange contact and insurance information with all drivers involved in the crash. 

Seek medical attention immediately if you are injured. While adrenaline may mask some or all of a victim’s injuries after an accident, a medical professional will be able to obtain a complete picture of a person’s condition. Also, failing to seek swift medical treatment may encourage the insurance company to argue you were not seriously injured. 

Take photos of the damage to your person and your property. We recommend taking pictures as soon as possible, while your injuries are most evident and before vehicles are impounded. 

Follow your medical provider’s full recommended treatment plan. We understand that some of this advice may be frustrating and time-consuming, yet following the plan will facilitate a swifter, more complete recovery. Additionally, an insurance company may attempt to discredit your injuries if you did not follow the recommended treatment plan. 

We encourage you to avoid giving statements to the other driver’s insurance until you have consulted with a lawyer. These statements are generally not helpful to victims, and the other driver’s insurance may use your answers against you. 

Fortunately, there is no risk to scheduling a consultation with a personal injury attorney at Nicolet Law Office. We are proud to offer free initial consultations to accident victims, allowing you to learn about your legal options without making a financial commitment. 

Common River Falls Car Accident Injuries 

Car accidents often result in life-changing injuries. At Nicolet Law Office, we strongly advise that accident victims obtain medical treatment immediately following an accident. Although injuries like severe cuts and lost limbs are evident right away, other injuries may take days or weeks to appear. 

Some of the most common injuries that result from car accidents include: 

  • Soft-tissue injuries: Rear-end collisions frequently result in whiplash, a common soft-tissue injury to the neck. Soft-tissue damage can lead to pain, swelling, and bruising around the injured area. 
  • Broken bones: Human bones simply are not built to withstand the tremendous forces typically involved in a car accident, and it is common for bones to break or fracture in a crash. 
  • Neck and back injuries: Some of the most severe car accident injuries involve the spinal cord. Damage to the spinal cord may permanently affect a victim’s strength, physical sensation, and body functions. 
  • Head and brain injuries: Car accidents are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries across the country. Other common head and brain injuries sustained in accidents include concussions, skull fractures, and contusions. 
  • Emotional trauma: While less visible than other types of injuries, the consequences of emotional distress are no less severe. Many accident victims suffer from emotional trauma long after their physical wounds have healed. 

The compassionate lawyers at Nicolet Law Office are prepared to help victims suffering from all kinds of injuries. When you choose to work with us, we will work tirelessly to ensure you have access to the resources you need to recover.
