Texas Car Crashes Can Have Long-Term Consequences

Posted on in Personal Injury

New Braunfels personal injury lawyerStatistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimate that more than 3 million people are injured in auto accidents each year. Many of these injured parties are victims of negligent drivers—motorists who were intoxicated, texting while driving, or otherwise behaving in a way that compromised the safety of those around them. The end result is a life that has been turned upside down. Sadly, it may be a long time before things are set right again. For some, life will never be the same. 

Long-Term Injuries and Wrongful Death

While some injuries do heal over a relatively short time period, there are those that can have long-lasting effects. Those that experience such injuries are likely to need rehabilitation, long-term medical care, and they may miss time from work. Some may be so severely injured that they are unable to return to the activities that they used to enjoy. Examples of severe and long-lasting injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)

  • Spinal injuries

  • Loss of limb

  • Injury to a vital organ

  • Bone and/or facial fractures

  • Whiplash

  • Paralysis

Victims can also be killed as the result of injuries sustained in an accident. In such cases, entire families are devastated. They lose a loved one, may lose a contributing income to their household, and suffer the ill effects of a severed relationship. In all of these instances (and many others), victims have the right to seek compensation for their injuries and/or losses.

Financial Losses After an Accident

Those who suffer injuries in a car crash and accident usually have associated medical costs and time away from work. However, a victim does not have to experience injury to have a financial loss. They may be without a vehicle, which can severely hinder their ability to work. This can result in debt and may even lead to emotional distress. Victims may be able to seek compensation to cover their losses, but they should never attempt to do so alone.

Why Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

While a personal injury claim might seem fairly straightforward, many victims find themselves in the midst of chaos once the process starts. While trying to heal, they may be hounded by insurance companies looking to settle early. This leaves victims at risk for financial loss since they do not know the full extent of their expenses. Alternatively, victims may experience lengthy and unnecessary delays, which insurance companies often use to try to persuade the victim into settling for a smaller amount. Some victims may even be subject to a complete denial of their claim. A qualified personal injury lawyer can help ensure that your rights and best interests are fully protected throughout the process.
