Vehicle accidents can cause serious injuries, which may have lasting effects, sometimes for the rest of a person’s life. Some of these serious injuries may require extensive medical care, and can permanently impair the injured person’s ability to gainfully perform work. Many vehicle accidents are fatal. Injuries that potentially stem from car crashes are various, and include broken bones, bleeding, back injuries, herniated discs, spinal cord injuries and paralysis, burn injuries, and brain injuries and other brain trauma.
For those accidents that are non-fatal, there are a variety of expenses that can accompany vehicle accident injuries. These include medical bills, ongoing medical care costs, lost wages, and various other expenses that can be not only very high in nature, but ongoing.
Some vehicle accident injuries may not be readily apparent at the time of the accident…i.e. the impact of the injuries may manifest a while after the vehicle accident occurs.
Because the effects of a car accident can potentially linger for years, it is important to know what legal remedies exist for an injured person. While some people believe that they can successfully handle injury legal remedy negotiations on their own, many others choose to engage a personal injury lawyer who handles car accident injuries to protect their legal rights and seek compensation. An experienced Chicago car accident attorney will have the knowledge and skills needed to deal with insurance companies, handle relevant paperwork, determine liability and either negotiate an attractive settlement or take the vehicle accident injury case to trial.
Compensation that can be attained for vehicle accident injuries are various, and can include compensation for medical costs; pain; suffering; disability; disfigurement; lost wages; vehicle damage; and other economic damages.
