When you think of the costs of a car accident, you likely first think of repairing the damage to your car. However, the losses that can result from a collision often go well beyond property damage if you also sustained injuries.
Injuries from crashes are often severe and can disrupt your life and your finances in many ways. The following are only some examples of costs commonly incurred by car accident victims:
Medical expenses: Victims can receive bills for emergency department visits, hospitalization, surgical procedures, rehabilitative therapy, medical equipment, medications, home health care, and any other treatment. In addition, car accident victims may require costly medical treatment well into the future or possibly for the rest of their lives.
Lost earnings: Many traumatic injuries can be limiting for victims and may cause physical, cognitive, or sensory impairments. Due to these impairments, many injured accident victims are unable to perform their job duties, causing them to lose income they need to cover their expenses. If injuries result in permanent disabilities, victims may not be able to work again or may lose significant earning power.
Pain and suffering: Serious injuries can cause debilitating and chronic physical pain that can affect nearly every aspect of a victim’s life. In addition, both the trauma of the crash and the stress of dealing with injuries can cause emotional distress that may require treatment.
Because car accidents can be so costly, it is important for victims to know that they often have the right to significant financial recovery. Some victims will recover through an insurance claim while others may need to file a lawsuit against the party who was responsible for the accident. There are many negligent acts that can lead to liability for your accident-related injuries, including the following:
- Drunk driving;
- Distracted driving;
- Aggressive driving;
- Drowsy driving;
- Violating traffic signals;
- Violating traffic laws;
- Not maintaining a vehicle;
- Not maintaining a roadway.
