Phoenix Occupant Ejection Injury Lawyers


Car Accidents and Occupant Ejection

In the United States of America, using a motor vehicle to get from A to B is a common form of transport. As a result, this leads to a greater opportunity for car accidents to occur and severe consequences to ensue.

Ultimately, serious car accidents can result in severe injuries, trauma, and can sometimes have fatal consequences. In most motor vehicle accidents, the force will cause individuals and objects inside to shift from their natural positions. If it is strong enough, the pressure can cause passengers to be thrown from the car. In the event that this occurs, passengers can suffer from severe injuries in the form of broken bones, head injuries, and sometimes death.

If you or a family member have been a victim in a car accident and subsequently sustained injuries as a result of occupant ejection, The Husband & Wife Law Team can help guide you through the legal steps necessary to achieve the desired results.

How Do These Accidents Happen?

Typically, occupant ejection occurs as a result of a high-speed car accident. Wrong-way collisions, rear-endings, and oncoming crashes create a force so strong that it thrusts the occupant out of their seat which can result in serious injuries or death.

There are two ways that a passenger can be ejected from their seat in a car accident. The first refers to partial ejection which means that the passenger does not leave the car but is forced out of their seat. The second is total ejection which is when the passenger is propelled out of the car and onto the road outside.

What Types of Injuries Result From an Occupant Ejection?

Car accidents can lead to serious injuries, even death, and can have lifelong effects on wellbeing and brain health. Occupant ejection is one aspect of a significant car crash that can have the most devastating effects on passengers as it creates the added risk of being hit by oncoming traffic and suffering from further injuries and the threat of mortality.

Injuries that are synonymous with occupant ejection include broken bones, fractured ribs, grazing, brain bleeds, and other head injuries.

In extreme cases, instant death may occur as a result of the accident or, subsequently as a result of particularly serious injuries and damage to an individual. Wrongful death claims can be made against an individual who can be held responsible for the death of an individual following a car accident that causes occupant ejection.

Distractions such as texting, eating, and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol raise the stakes of a car accident that results in a wrongful death due to occupant ejection. If death occurs by no fault of their own, a wrongful death claim can be made to compensate for the related damages.

How Will a Lawyer Help Me With My Case?

If you’ve been involved in a car accident and have suffered an injury due to occupant ejection, a lawyer can help you to handle the formal and legally complex aspects of your case.

For example, depending on the nature of your injury, there are varying time frames that you can file a personal injury claim in line with the statute of limitations requirements.

In the United States, to prove negligence, you need to be able to establish that the wrongdoer owed a duty and they breached that duty which resulted in the injury. A lawyer will assist you by providing advice on the relevant documentation you will need, deadlines, and how to approach the legal process in line with the best option available to you.
