An accident doesn’t just bring physical pain. There are financial costs and other costs that can be complicated after an accident. This is why it is important to seek the counsel of a knowledgeable attorney like those at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.
Common Car Accident Costs
The main cost that one experiences is healthcare expenses. These include emergency on-site stabilization procedures, ambulance rides, medical tests, imaging scans, emergency room treatment, surgeries, medication, medical devices, doctor visits, follow-up appointments, physical therapy, and medical monitoring. These costs could be long-term.
Another financial pitfall is repairing the damaged vehicle. These could be minor dents or a totaled car. Many have to spend money to repair the car before the insurance will pay. Then, there is the loss of employment and wages. Employers need to help accommodate any changed physical circumstances. However, the employer can still fire you.
The last thing anyone wants is to lose a job, then try to handle the hike in car insurance premiums. Like interest rates on bank loans, insurance premiums are partially based on the risk profile of the client. The better the driving record, the cheaper insurance could be.
Many underestimate the cost of a car crash. Even a minor accident could bring large financial costs. An attorney can help ensure that you receive the compensation you need to financially heal from your accident.
It can be shocking after an accident to learn how expensive, time-consuming and frustrating the process can be. For many, pain does not present itself at the scene of the accident, however, the debilitating pain begins a day or two later. This can be difficult for many Americans who do not have health insurance or disability insurance. Therefore, it can be difficult to receive medical attention or income while out of work.
