Being involved in a major car accident can be a life changing event. If the accident has left you or a loved one with serious injuries, you may not be able to work. You may be facing medical expenses and other financial worries.
At The Hoffmann Law Firm, L.L.C., we understand that monetary compensation can never return a person’s health or erase the lasting effects of a personal injury. However, it can alleviate many of the day-to-day problems confronted by the victim and their family.
Car Accidents and Injuries
A car accident can be caused for a number of reasons and can result in varying consequences. Sometimes seemingly minor accidents can often cause serious and costly injuries. For instance, after a rear-end crash the damage may seem minor but the injuries can take a long time to fully develop. That is why it is critical to seek medical attention immediately and speak with a knowledgeable attorney right away.
However, a catastrophic injury is described as an injury that causes a permanent functional disability or death. It can be a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord or brain. With these types of injuries, not only is the accident victim usually unable to fully enjoy life and perform routine tasks, but if the injury causes permanent brain damage or paralysis, the long term treatment costs may be in the millions.
With so many variables in car accidents, it is impossible to predict the severity of an injury or how long the recovery time will be. Don’t accept quick settlement offers from insurance companies without first discussing your case with an attorney. When an insurance company jumps to offer a settlement, it is most likely because they know that the injuries you have sustained as a result of their client’s negligence are worthy of compensation for future medical care.
