No matter how careful they are, every person is bound to have more than one car accident in their lives. Based on the statistics, you can count on having at least three accidents over the course of your driving career. It does not matter that you travel the speed limit and do not do things like text while driving. Other people do, and you cannot control their actions. Sometimes, their carelessness could uproot your life or that of a family member.
There is nothing that you can do to undo the accident. The best thing that you can do is get the help you need to deal with both your medical and legal situation. Some people are fortunate enough to walk away unharmed from a car accident. Others are left with lasting injuries, and they may even lose loved ones. Here are some of the common injuries that people may suffer in a car crash:
These injuries have physical and financial costs attached to them. Physically, you lose some or all of your ability to function, either temporarily or permanently. Financially, you are faced with the mounting cost of treatment, based on your out-of-pocket costs alone. In addition, you may need to miss work time. In a worst-case scenario, you are not able to work again.
There is no reason why you need to bear these costs when someone else is to blame for the accident that injured you. Legally, if someone else was negligent, they are obligated to pay you for the damages that they caused. However, the law does not assume someone’s negligence. It is something that you must prove, and it needs to be backed with evidence.
On your own, you will struggle to put all of this together. Some people try to represent themselves in a personal injury case because they think that they cannot afford an attorney or do not want to pay one. The results that people with attorneys obtain in cases are, on average, far better than those that self-represented claimants will get.
To understand this, you need to have a knowledge of how claims are calculated. Car accident damages could consist of the following:
Each of these elements has its own value if you have incurred these damages. They must each be properly valued for you to get the money that you deserve. The insurance company has numerous tools in their box to try to minimize the value of what you may get in a settlement.
The best weapon that you have is an experienced attorney who is wise to the tricks of the insurance company. The lawyer can guide you through the claims process and help you settle your claim. Yet, you also want an attorney who can think beyond a settlement and file a lawsuit if necessary.
You also need professionals to diagnose and treat your accident injuries. It can take some time for your injuries to be noticed after an accident, but that does not mean that you are uninjured.
