How Previous Accident Injuries May Impact Your Atlanta Truck Accident RecoveryYou don't need statistical evidence to show you that the odds of being in a motor vehicle accident over the course of your lifetime are high. From 2000 - 2006, there were more than 6 million people involved in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Georgia alone. Thus, there is unfortunately a significant chance that you will be involved in more than one crash during your lifetime.
Previous Accident Injuries May Not Prevent a Current Accident Recovery
Each crash may result in physical injuries. Sometimes a later accident may exacerbate earlier injuries or cause different injuries. Either way, if you have been injured in an Atlanta truck wreck, then you may have the right to recover damages for injuries caused by the truck accident. The fact that you were in an earlier accident is not a bar to recovery.
The arguments that will be presented by the trucking company, or its insurer, are predictable. They are likely going to argue that the physical injuries that you are currently suffering are a result of a previous accident. Specifically, they may argue that the injuries that you were suffering were not caused by the current accident.
In order to recover damages in an Atlanta trucking accident, you need to prove that your injuries were caused by the crash. If your previous injuries were made worse or you experience new injuries, then you may be entitled to damages.
