Causation: What it is & Why it is Important for Your Case
What is causation?
Causation is what connects your injury to the accident. When you’ve been injured in an accident, whether its an auto accident, bicycle accident, truck accident or any other type of accident. It is pretty obvious to most that the accident was the cause of the injury, but proving that is a whole different story. Throughout all of the cases that our personal injury attorneys handles, causation is one of the most difficult things to prove. If you’ve read our previous blog, then you already know that insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying your claim, and one of their most effective tricks is muddling causation. It is critical if you have had an accident to get a lawyers thoughts on the connections of your injuries to the accident.
How can causation affect your legal case?
There are many things that insurance companies can do to make causation questionable. For example, you’ve gone to the emergency room with an obvious head injury and a sore neck. The ER staff will often identify your main injuries, such as neck or back injuries. However, they may not mention your minor injuries at all. The insurance company may claim that, because your minor injuries weren’t mentioned by the ER staff, they aren’t related to your case. Even the smallest missed details could end up hurting you in your personal injury claim.
