A car crash can take a toll on your body and finances

An ordinary trip to the store may turn into an unforgettable trip to the emergency room if you become involved in a car crash. In some cases, car accidents happen as a result of the carelessness of another motorist, or driver negligence.

Driver negligence may include texting while driving, speeding or drunk driving, for example. If another driver has allegedly injured you in a car crash in California due to negligent driving, you have the right to seek compensation, which may help you to cover your financial losses such as related medical bills and lost wages.

Medical bills

Your injuries following a crash may be minor or major, ranging from a few small cuts to paralysis. However, sometimes the most severe injuries start out as seemingly minor ones. For this reason, it may be in your best interest to seek medical attention right away following the crash if you feel you suffered injuries in any way.

Your medical bills stemming from a motor vehicle accident might include the following:

  • Cognitive therapy for brain injuries
  • Physical therapy
  • In-home services
  • Health care professional consultations
  • Heat pads and crutches
  • Ambulance ride fees

Of course, the above is not an exhaustive list of the diagnostic procedures and treatments you may require. Following your crash, a doctor can assess your condition and determine what treatment options may be most appropriate for you.

Lost income

Following a severe accident, you may lose your ability to earn money. For instance, you might be unable to move around at your job site, or days in the hospital may cut into your regular earnings. You may also have to miss work for physical therapy sessions. In other words, your injuries may impair your ability to support yourself financially either temporarily or permanently following the collision.

Your rights as a car accident victim

If a careless driver has injured you on the road, you may choose to file a personal injury claim against him or her, seeking the reimbursement of monetary damages. If you win your suit, the court hearing your case will decide your claim for damages.

A monetary damage award may help you to address your medical expenses and lost wages as well as pain and suffering and even emotional distress following the accident. It cannot undo the events leading to your car crash, but it can help you to more easily move forward from it.
