Are All Auto Accident Injuries Bad Enough For An Attorney?

Auto accidents happen every day and they range from minor fender benders to fatal collisions. After an auto accident, you have a lot to think about. One of the things you’ll wonder is if your injuries are serious enough that you need to talk to an attorney. This can be difficult to assess for a number of reasons. Mostly because right after an accident, you may not always know how your injuries will impact your life. If you are wondering if you need to speak with an attorney after your accident, here are some important things to consider.

Damages From Accidents Aren’t Always Apparent

After an accident, there will be many expenses. However, you may not know the full extent of the costs. First of all, many of the most common injuries from auto accidents take a while to fully develop. Injuries like Whiplash, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and spinal injuries, may not be especially painful in the beginning but can lead to debilitating issues after time. Secondly, it’s obvious that there will be medical expenses and property damage, but there’s also other costs. Tangible costs like missed wages and benefits and intangible costs like the loss of enjoyment and the damage to your family also need to be considered.

Insurance Companies Are No Help

Insurance companies are no help after an accident. Even the most reputable insurance companies prioritize their profits over helping people. Insurance adjusters know that the costs of an accident aren’t always immediately apparent. So they will use a variety of tactics to get people to close their claim quickly in order to pay less. They’ll also work to downplay your injuries to convince you and everyone else that they are not as serious. Therefore, the insurance companies will not offer you any real insight into what you need to recover after an accident.

Things To Consider After An Auto Accident

If you are curious if your injuries are bad enough that you need to seek legal advice, there are a few things you should ask yourself:

How much pain am I in? Is the pain from your injuries so severe you can’t live your normal life? Is your pain impacting your ability to work and provide for your family? Has your injuries and pain caused you to stop doing the hobbies you enjoy?
How long will my injuries last? What is the expected length of recovery? Will they be temporary or lifelong? Have my injuries caused a permanent disability?
Does my injury require expensive medical care? Do I need surgeries, physical therapy, and/or prescriptions?
Were my injuries the result of the auto accident? Did the other driver cause the accident?

If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, it is a good idea to speak to an attorney.
