What Types of Accidents Can Cause Serious Injuries?
While accidents happen all the time, some can result in serious, life-changing injuries. Car accidents, truck collisions and other incidents involving motorized vehicles often cause individuals to sustain grave injuries that may require a lifetime of care and rehabilitation. The higher the force exerted upon the injury victim, the more likely they will suffer severe, catastrophic injuries. Consider the following:
- When a semitrailer truck traveling at highway speeds strikes a passenger vehicle, serious injuries are likely to occur.
- When two passenger cars traveling at the posted speed limit going in different directions collide, the outcome can be catastrophic.
- Even if two passenger cars are going in the same direction and one is stopped and the other is traveling at the posted speed limit, passengers and drivers can sustain severe injuries.
- Accidents involving motorcyclists nearly always produce serious injuries given the limited amount of protection a motorcycle provides to its riders.
- Whether the accident involves a car, truck or other vehicle, when a driver hits a pedestrian, the pedestrian is likely to suffer severe if not fatal injuries.
The common element in all of these situations is the application of great force upon the accident victim. Unfortunately, when an individual is hit with such force, serious and catastrophic injuries, including concussions, brain damage, fractures and other bodily injuries, are the likely result.

How Soon After an Accident Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer in Phoenix, AZ?
It is very important for accident victims to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the incident. We know that contacting an attorney is the last thing an injured individual is thinking about. However, under the law, injured individuals have a specific amount of time in which to file a case. This time limitation is commonly known as the Statute of Limitations. Depending on the facts of the case, the time limit will vary; however, the general statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is currently two years. Still, we do not recommend waiting two years to file a lawsuit, as the timeframe may actually be much shorter in some instances.
