Car accidents can result in serious, catastrophic and even fatal injuries to victims. Victims may be left with unexpected injuries that require extensive medical care and treatment, prevent them from working and also cause emotional trauma.
Fortunately, personal injury claims can help car accident victims recover compensation for the injuries and damages they have suffered from the driver responsible for the accident. Victims may be able to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering damages. Damages may also be available for future medical care costs and lost-earning capacity, depending on the nature and severity of the injuries suffered. Car accident injuries can result in life-long harm, disability and disfigurement.
Car accidents can cause brain and spinal cord injuries. In addition, injuries can include traumatic brain injuries; skull fractures; fractured vertebrae; slipped, bulging or ruptured disks; paraplegia or quadriplegia related to spinal cord damage; and nerve or muscular damage to the back. Head, brain, neck and back injuries can all be serious and requiring on-going treatment and care. If a loved one dies, surviving family members may also be able to recover wrongful death damages.
Personal injury legal protections are available to help victims with the physical, financial and emotional damages they suffered at the hands of a negligent driver. Victims should be familiar with the legal remedies available to them when they have suffered catastrophic harm in a car accident. If you have questions regarding your case, seeking the assistance of an experience attorney can be of great help.
