Expenses Associated with Car Accidents

As auto accident lawyers, we have seen many cases involving car accidents. We have seen the pain and suffering associated with crashes and the physical, mental, and financial damages caused by car accidents. Here are some of the financial burdens associated with an auto accident, some of which may not be properly covered if you do not seek the assistance of a quality auto accident lawyer:

Medical Expenses

Medical expenses can range from small cuts and bruises to more serious injuries, including broken bones, internal bleeding, traumatic brain injuries, and even paralysis. Some injuries will only require one or two visits to the doctor. Others require ongoing treatment, including physical therapy and surgery.

Loss of Wages

If you are out of work for an extended period of time, you and your family loses out on the money you would have made during that time. Even worse, depending upon the extent of the injury and your work requirements, permanent damage could prevent you from ever going back to work, or at least prevent you from returning to the same job.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, sometimes people die in car accidents, especially head-on accidents and high-speed accidents. If a family member was killed in a crash caused by another driver, you could be entitled to wrongful death benefits.

Property Damage

While your vehicle is likely the first thing you think of when it comes to property damage during a car accident, there could also be damage to your home, land, or other property. You should be compensated for any damaged caused to your property because of the car accident.

Pain and Suffering

Pain and suffering includes any mental anguish caused by the accident. While things such as headaches, which make it difficult to function properly, would also be covered under medical expenses, other pain and suffering is less easy to diagnose from a medical prospective but is still just as real of a problem.

If you find yourself facing any of these financial burdens associated with an auto accident caused by another driver, contact us. We will fight for you.
