Car Accidents at Louisville Area Intersections Can Result in Serious and Permanent Injuries

Car Accidents at Louisville Area Intersections - Personal Injury Law

There are unfortunately many serious car accidents at Louisville intersections each year.  These accidents often involve substantial forces at impact resulting in serious and often permanent injuries.

Why Should You Always Be Cautious at an Intersection?

There are substantial dangers and Louisville area drivers should be cautious when approaching or entering an intersection.  Drivers are often distracted by texts or emails and not paying attention to what is happening around them.  The next thing you know you have been broadsided or hit head on by another driver even though you were clearly operating your vehicle in a safe manner. 

Intersection accidents often involve t-bone (side impact) or head-on collisions that leave serious injuries such as broken bones and fractures, head injury, neck and back injuries, brain trauma and in some cases paralysis.  These injuries will involve medical treatment long after the initial visit to the emergency room.  Medical treatment and recovery can include multiple medical procedures, surgeries and physical or occupational therapy over a long period of time.  The result of your injuries may require modifications throughout your life so that you have access to your home, or to allow you to drive your car. 

Always See a Trauma Physician After Any Motor Vehicle Accident

Why is it important to see a trauma physician after any motor vehicle accident, including car accidents at Louisville intersections? The human body is extremely vulnerable to motor vehicle collisions and impacts, even at slower speeds.  An accident you might be consider to be “fairly light” can result in serious damage to discs in your neck and spine and other soft tissues throughout the body.

It is not uncommon for a person to think they are uninjured in the immediate aftermath of a car accident.  They may feel fairly well for a few days, weeks or even months before the symptoms of hidden and substantial injuries present symptoms.  We have had many clients who appeared to be uninjured right after the accident, and a few days or weeks later were literally unable to move or even get out of bed.

If you don’t see a doctor within 24 to 48 hours of a motor vehicle accident the insurance company can deny what should be your valid personal injury claim.  They will say “you never even went to the doctor after the accident.  You must have injured yourself somewhere else and now you are just trying to push it off on the car crash.”  They can and will deny your rightful personal injury claim.
