A person who suffers serious injuries in a car wreck will likely have to make a lot of life changes. Some of these are pretty serious. For example, a person who has a brain or spinal cord injury might not be able to return to work after the crash.
These individuals have to deal with pain and medical issues. They also need to cope with the social changes that come with these types of injuries. Some of these are complicated by the financial challenges that come with this situation. We know that financial stress makes everything seem much worse than it already is.
Having the financial backing you need can help you get necessary medical care. It can also make it easier to get the personal care assistance you need. Since not everyone has money in the bank to cover all this, some victims choose to seek compensation via a civil lawsuit.
Filing this claim can help to shift the financial burden from you to the person who’s liable for the wreck. This can include everything from lost wages to medical bills, depending on the situation. We work with victims to find out what they need to recover, so we can work toward an appropriate settlement.
Taking legal action also sends a strong message about appropriate behavior while driving. There isn’t any reason why the victim in this type of case should have to handle everything on their own.
Our lawyers fight for your rights as the injured party. These include the right to hold the liable party accountable for all the applicable bills. We know that this isn’t always easy to do, so we are here to help you through the process.
