Car crashes aren’t situations that you should take lightly. Even if you don’t think that your injuries are serious, there is a chance that something is very wrong. You should make sure that you get the medical care that you need for your injuries so that you know what you are dealing with and have a plan to heal.
We understand that you might have some concerns about your ability to cover the costs of the medical care you need. Your insurance might not cover the medical care if you are injured in a car accident. You may need to turn to car insurance, either your own or the other driver’s.
But, have you thought about what will happen if that coverage isn’t sufficient? In that case, you might end up having to come out of pocket for the medical care costs. This is something that could lead to a difficult financial situation for you.
You do have the option of seeking compensation from the driver who hit you. By filing a civil claim for compensation, you might be able to get the medical care costs covered. This could help you out a lot; however, this isn’t the only thing that you can attempt to recover when you seek compensation.
We can help you to learn if there are other types of damages that you can seek. Missed wages are one damage type that you might be able to seek if you are having to skip work because of the injury or due to the treatments that you need to have. Other possibilities might include pain and suffering or loss of consortium.
