The Non-Health Results Of An Automotive Accident Can Be Just As Serious


When people are involved in automotive accidents, they typically concern themselves with the medical and physical consequences. This is reasonable, since medical bills can be expensive!

However, there are other consequences of an accident that can be just as severe and significant. When considering how much an accident victim is entitled to, these issues also come up.

Unexpected Consequences Of An Accident Can Hit You Where You Least Expect Them

After an accident, you should focus as much as possible on your recovery. That means reducing and eliminating stress wherever possible so your body — and your physician — can work for you.

However, it is also important to not get caught unawares with the full impact of an accident. That being the case, it’s a good idea to review some of the less expected ways accidents can hurt you.

1) Lost Income In The Aftermath Of An Accident

Lost income is a significant problem for people who are recovering from an accident. It may take weeks or even months for you to be able to recover to the point where you can return to the job. During that time, many people use credit cards or savings to survive.

2) Inhibited Ability To Make Income In The Future

If injured in an automobile crash, you could end up with long term physical or cognitive issues. Many people find that their range of motion is impaired due to injury of the back, neck, or limbs. Pain could be an ongoing and significant issue. When brain injury is involved, your memory and concentration could be impaired.

3) Inability To Drive Following An Accident

After an accident, some people develop significant anxiety or even phobias in relation to driving. This further complicates the task of rebuilding your life after an accident. Some victims may be able to use public transportation to help them, but this is rarely an option in Florida.

4) Costly Insurance Premiums And Related Issues

Not only will insurance companies fight you to prevent you from collecting an insurance claim, but they will also make it more difficult for you to maintain your vehicle by raising your rates. Unfortunately, expecting empathy from an insurance company is often a losing proposition.

Getting Your Name Cleared Is The Best Way To Avoid Unexpected Consequences

As you read this, you might feel that you are personally responsible for your accident. You may feel that there’s no recourse that you can use in order to make sure your rights are protected.

However, it’s important to maintain hope. You should never proceed on a legal matter based on your own hunches or even what you remember of the event — until you speak to an expert.

The factors that cause an automotive accident are not always obvious. For example, the level of automobile recalls in the United States today is higher than it has ever been.

Before you decide to “take the rap,” discuss your needs with an expert at Get Me Justice. Going to court and prevailing will free you from many of the non-health consequences of an accident.

Plus, should you prevail, you will often be entitled to monetary damages from the responsible party — which is key if you find that your accident has long lasting health implications for you.
