How Spinal Injuries Happen in Car Crashes
Car crashes can cause more than damage to your car, and if you have had a spinal injury in a car accident, the cost of medical treatment and the future costs associated with lost earnings due to rehabilitation and disability can be substantial. When you have been injured in an accident, and you were not at fault, you could be entitled to damages to cover your medical bills, the value of your lost wages and future earnings ability as a result of injury, and potentially other damages. The experienced spinal injury attorneys from Varcadipane & Pinnisi can advise you about your legal rights, as well as the potential value of your case.
Spinal Injuries Occur Frequently in Serious Car Accidents and Collisions
The risk of sustaining a serious spinal injury and associated injuries in car accidents is rather high in modern society. This can be attributed to a variety of reasons, including a low level of standards for car manufacturing, an absence or inadequacy of safety measures in cars, poorly designed roads, and problems with the quality of driving. Spinal injuries happen most often in rollover accidents, which often happen due to negligent drivers. Spinal injuries can also occur in rear-end crashes, head-on collisions, and more.
The severity of a spinal injury can impact your life in a number of ways, such as limiting your ability to engage in the activities and hobbies you enjoyed before your injury and also the way in which you work. If your ability to work has been impacted and you either cannot return to work or a job that pays as well as prior to your injury, you could be entitled to further damages to cover your lost earnings through your working life. Your car accident attorney can advise you of what your options are.
How Much Can I Recover from My Car Crash?
The experience of going through any car accident, whether minor or severe, can place your entire life on hold. This is especially true if you suffer a spinal injury, as you can incur significant medical bills and even a permanent disability. The extent of your injuries and their impact on your ability to work and support your family will determine the amount that you can recover from your injuries. While you might receive a fast settlement offer from the insurance company that seems to cover your medical bills and car repairs, it can fail to accurately assess the future damages associated with your injury.
