Not all auto accidents cause injuries. But, the ones that do can leave the victims of the car accident with catastrophic injuries that require days, weeks or even months of hospitalization and medical treatment. Victims in this type of situation are likely thinking one overriding thought: What do I do now?
It is a valid question. The aftermath of a catastrophic injury suffered in a car accident can leave victims searching for many different answers: How did the accident happen? Who caused it? How much money will I owe in medical bills? How will I earn money if I’m injured and can’t return to work right away? Oftentimes, it likely seems like there are more questions than answers for these injured victims.
Fortunately, for victims who have suffered injuries due to the negligent or reckless conduct of another party, one option may be to pursue a personal injury lawsuit to seek financial compensation. These types of lawsuits seek to make the victim “whole” again — perhaps not physically or mentally, but to at least provide the victims with the financial means with which to get the treatment they need.
At our law firm, we have seen cases that involve a wide range of catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, burn injuries and brain injuries, just to name a few. These victims may feel helpless in the immediate aftermath of the accident that caused these injuries, but they may have options when it comes to a personal injury lawsuit.
