Accidents are a huge problem in the United States, causing millions of Americans to suffer from medical repercussions and financial burdens. These kinds of accidents can destroy lives in a matter of seconds. While you’ll want to put the past behind you at all costs, it’s crucial to reach out for legal advice so that you aren’t stuck with dealing with the damages yourself.
What Is Negligence?
In cases involving “negligence,” the victim is often not responsible for the accident at all. When legal professionals demonstrate negligence in an accident, the law acts in favor of the victim. This term refers to circumstances where someone endured an accident because the party that was in charge of the safety of the situation failed.
What Are Common Examples of Negligence?
There are many different circumstances that fall under the category of negligence. If any of these situations sound familiar to you, contact a trial attorney today.
Examples of negligence include, but are not limited to:
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Medical mistakes
- Work-related accidents
- Defective medical devices or drugs
- Bridge collapses
- Crane collapses
- Train derailments
- Plane or helicopter crashes
- Construction accidents
Contacting a lawyer for a free consultation is an excellent way to determine if you have a potential case. If you end up in an accident, you should not be footing the bill.
What Attorneys Help Cover
A legal professional helps get you the coverage you need to pay for any bills related to your accident. It’s important to note that they also cover indirect expenses. In other words, if you experience an injury that forces you to take time off work or requires lifelong care, the offender is responsible.
This notion is very important for those suffering from accident-related catastrophic injuries. Catastrophic injuries are more than your mild back pain or whiplash. These injuries are severe and life–changing, forcing victims to deal with long-lasting medical problems.
Some of the most common financial impacts addressed with your accident attorneys are:
- Emergency and medical expenses
- Continuing medical care
- Visiting nursing care
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Medical equipment such as a hospital bed at home, wheelchairs, elevators, ramps, …
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of coordination and balance
- Diminished earning capacity
- Emotional distress
Be sure to always keep copies of any expenses you have. Physical copies of bills, invoices, and paystubs (pre-accident) help build a strong case.
