Common Causes of Injuries in Car Accidents
Many people assume that the size of the vehicles involved, and the speeds of the vehicles at the time of the collision are the only factors that affect the severity of sustained injuries.

In personal injury cases, the person who caused the accident (defendant) is required by law to accept the injured person (plaintiff) as he or she is after the accident has occurred. If the accident causes a more severe injury in the plaintiff because of an underlying condition or previous injury, the defendant is responsible for the condition of the plaintiff regardless of their previous state of health. This rule is referred to as the “eggshell plaintiff” or “eggshell skull” rule.
