The Costs of a Car Accident Injury

The Costs of a Car Accident Injury

Car crashes happen in an instant, but the effects can linger for a long time. There are many costs of car accidents, some of which are not financial. If someone else was negligent and caused your accident – such as another driver – you have the right to seek compensation for all of your losses. It is important to recognize all of the various costs stemming from a car crash so that you do not miss out on compensation that you need and deserve.

Medical Expenses

If you sustained injuries in your crash, you should seek the medical treatment you need right away. Medical care is expensive, and some injuries require ongoing treatment for some time before you can recover fully. In fact, some people need to continue medical treatment long after their claim is complete. It is important to have a Campbell car accident attorney calculate all of your past and future medical expenses as part of your overall costs.

Lost Wages

Injuries can keep you out of work while you recover or, if your injury leaves you with permanent disabilities, you might not be able to return to work at all. Past and future lost income is also a major cost of a crash for which you can seek recovery.

Intangible Costs

Not all costs of a crash are based on financial losses. There are many intangible costs of accidents that should be considered, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental trauma
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Permanent disfigurement
