“How can I be injured if my car bumper only seems to have some cosmetic damage? “
“My airbag didn’t deploy, so that must mean that the accident wasn’t serious enough to get really hurt, right?”
“My car doesn’t look very damaged, doesn’t that mean that a judge or jury won’t believe that I was actually hurt in the accident?”
After a car accident, questions like these can run through the minds of the victims. After all, the other driver may seem entirely unaffected by the incident, and may likely be pressuring the victims to accept a cash payment for the damages to their vehicle or to simply handle reparations in the future. Despite any temptation otherwise, however, it is important that you call the police and proceed to handle the accident as if it were just as severe as any other–since it very well might.
