Should I Seek Compensation for Minor Car Accident Injuries?

Car accidents are known to cause serious injuries. However, they also result in minor bumps and bruises. Can you still seek compensation for minor car accident injuries? Absolutely.

Pursuing Compensation Is Your Legal Right

Pursuing compensation from the at-fault party for your injuries or losses after an accident is your legal right. It doesn’t matter how minor or severe the accident or your injuries. 

After your accident, you will receive some form of medical attention which will cost you. You should be able to recoup those costs, especially since the accident wasn’t due to your negligence.

Not All Injuries Show Up Immediately After a Crash

Some injuries may seem minor at first but may become severe over time. Other injuries don’t show symptoms until days or weeks after your accident. For example, whiplash pain may not begin until a few days after your accident and can persist for weeks or months.

Filing a claim for your injuries will help you cover the cost of the medical treatment you receive now and in the future. This includes everything from the emergency care you receive right after your accident to treatments such as extended physical therapy.

What Damages Are You Able to Receive in Texas?

To receive compensation for your injuries in Texas, you’ll need to file a claim with the at-fault party’s insurance. However, you may need to file a legal claim if you’re unable to receive the compensation you need from the insurer.

In Texas, there are various types of damages you can receive, including compensation for your medical bills, lost wages from being unable to work, and repairing your vehicle.

Other compensation is available, such as for pain and suffering. This includes damages for the physical pain you’ve endured as well as the emotional trauma of the accident.

To determine what types of compensation you can pursue, we recommend reaching out to an experienced car accident attorney. They can guide you through each step of the filing process, whether you’re working with an insurance company or the court.
