Far too many people do not realize the far reaching implications of a serious car accident until weeks after it has happened. You may not realize that the medical conditions you’ve been diagnosed with will impact you for days, weeks, months or even years down the road. This can be very frustrating for an accident victim who recognizes that another party was responsible for the accident itself.
Someone else may be held liable for your severe injuries especially if they were:
- Distracted drivers.
- Aggressive drivers.
- Employers of drivers.
- Drivers who violate the law.
When you receive medical care and have to deal with all of the extensive aftermath of a disabling and permanent injury, the last thing you want to worry about is determining evidence of liability or understanding what makes a fair settlement offer. This is when consulting with an experienced car accident attorney is extremely important. Permanent disabilities may be associated with your injuries, and these can affect you for the rest of your life. They will range in degree and will be determined by whether or not you are able to function in daily life or return to work.
There are serious consequences associated with a permanent disability. Although every accident that leads to injuries can have devastating consequences, a permanent disability can seriously affect your personal life, quality of life and your work. This is why it is important to seek just and comprehensive compensation when your disability is caused by someone else’s negligence.
Some of the most common examples of permanent disabilities include severe burns, neck and back injuries, ongoing psychological trauma, sensory deprivation, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis caused by spinal cord damage, or partial or complete limb amputation. If your loved one is currently dealing with these consequences, schedule a time to meet with a qualified lawyer today.
