If you or a loved one has gone through a personal injury, you already know that the damage they cause can be absolutely devastating. The effects of a personal injury accident, such as a car crash or a slip and fall, can be wide-reaching, long-lasting, and life-altering.
Personal injuries can rob survivors of many essential things that uninjured people take for granted in their everyday lives. An injury can rob you of your mobility, your independence, and your ability to go about your day without chronic pain. It can rob you of your ability to work and to provide for yourself and your family. It can even rob you of your ability to enjoy the things that you once loved the most.
In addition, in the direct aftermath of an accident, personal injury survivors often have a grueling recovery process ahead of them. Often, this recovery process is very physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing. It may involve an extensive medical treatment regimen, including extended hospital and rehab stays, surgeries, procedures, and long courses of physical therapy and medication. Sometimes these treatments have an end-date; in other cases, they become a regular part of a person’s post-accident life.
As if all of that were not overwhelming enough, there’s also the financial side of things to consider. Medical care and rehabilitative treatment for a personal injury—especially a serious personal injury—will almost always be enormously expensive. These costs are often so enormous and run up so quickly that they stand to bankrupt the injured survivor and their family, whether or not they have insurance.
That’s right. Unfortunately, having insurance doesn’t mean that the medical costs for your personal injury will be effortlessly covered. Personal injury survivors who do have insurance often have to fight their insurance company tooth and nail for coverage. Even then, without the help of a personal injury attorney, personal injury survivors are likely to face denials, low-ball settlement offers, and coverage gaps that lead to significant medical debt.
In addition, many personal injury survivors are unable to work or earn income the way they once did, at least temporarily. For some, this limitation or disability will only last for a contained period of time. For others, it will be life-long. The combination of loss of income and sudden, significant medical bills creates a “one-two punch” that can completely destabilize the lives of personal injury survivors and their families.
As if to add insult to injury, so to speak, many personal injuries aren’t even the fault of the survivor, but rather were caused by someone else’s negligence, recklessness, inattention, or even malice. Considering this fact, it is deeply unfair that personal injury survivors are made to shoulder the enormous costs of their injuries (compounded with their income loss from being unable to work) when those injuries were caused by someone else altogether.
It is easy to see how personal injury survivors and their families often find themselves completely overwhelmed, terrified, and at a loss for what to do next. It is very understandable when they feel the weight of an unfair thing happening to them in an unfair system.
However, there is some good news. Personal injury survivors can defend themselves from individuals and insurance companies who would have them shoulder the costs of their injuries and go uncompensated for everything they have lost. With the right personal injury attorney, personal injury survivors may recover extensive damages, including coverage of medical debt and lost wages, as well as future compensation for lost earning potential, loss of enjoyment of life, and other things that the accident took from the survivor.
