Car wreck injuries can last a long time after the crash occurs. When a person experiences a catastrophic injury, their life might never return to the same quality that it was before the accident. They may be facing intensive medical care, as well as other life consequences. We know that this is a difficult thing to face, especially for a person who was healthy and active before the wreck.
While the changes in your abilities might be hard to cope with, the financial effects of the crash can also be challenging. Financial distress can come from many different directions, like hospital bills, doctors bills, physical therapy costs, lost wages and expenses associated with personal care.
Some more serious car accident injuries might leave the victim unable to work any longer — or they may have to change careers to accommodate their new limitation. Others may only ever work part-time again. As you can imagine, the changes in ability and the financial aspects of the situation can weigh heavily on the victim’s family. This is especially true if the victim was the person who was the primary breadwinner in the home.
