What compensation can a person expect from a car accident?

Cary residents understand a car accident is a common occurrence in the area. Almost every driver will be involved in at least one car accident during their driving career. Luckily, these are usually minor accidents and don't involve serious injuries, but, occasionally, an accident occurs that causes the victim severe injuries.

When a person is involved in a car accident, it is sudden and unexpected. No one drives around hoping that they will be hit by someone else. There are many injuries a person can suffer in a car accident. Whiplash is common when there is sudden movement to a person's neck. Or, a person can suffer from a serious head injury, damage to the spinal cord, a herniated disc, broken bones, and many other injuries. Some injuries may not even show up until much later. Many of these medical issues require expensive treatment and years of rehabilitation. These medical expenses can severely affect a family's finances.

Those who are involved in a car accident through no fault of their own may be eligible for compensation. This compensation can come from multiple sources, including insurance settlements and compensation received from lawsuits filed against those at fault. The compensation may be available for medical expenses, future medical expenses, pain and suffering and other damages. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help their client determine who is at fault for their injuries and help hold the negligent party responsible.

A car accident can be a serious occurrence for a person. These accidents can often cause a family to fall into debt because of the extreme medical expenses and because a person may not be able to return to work. These families have the legal right to hold negligent parties responsible for their injuries.
