As a person who has faced a spinal cord or brain injury or lost a loved one to an accident, it’s important that you regain as much of your health as possible and are able to deal with the death of your loved one. You may not be able to work, could be suffering from pain that isn’t easy to relieve or you could be stuck in a hospital and working through months of recuperation. On top of that, your loved one, a passenger or driver of the vehicle you were in, has now passed away.
As an injured victim, there are a range of symptoms you could have been left with. You could be struggling with paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. Those injuries could result in you needing ongoing occupational and physical therapy to keep your muscles strong and to attempt to heal the damage. You could face trouble with your memory, anxiety, depression or other mental illnesses from trauma. Cognitive difficulties are also a possibility; you may not be able to read, write or concentrate the way you used to, and that can be frustrating when you want to work or participate in normal daily activities.
Your loved one may have faced many of the same issues before succumbing to his or her injuries. Whether you were hurt by a drunk driver or just someone who wasn’t paying attention makes no difference. The point is that you’re suffering now, and you don’t need to do it alone. There are some things you can do to help yourself.
If you were hurt in a car, boating, truck or motorcycle accident or are facing your loved one’s wrongful death from an accident, it’s your right to receive the money you need in a timely manner. You shouldn’t have to wait while an insurance company tries to tell you there’s no way to prove negligence that you’ve suffered from. If you want to learn more about your options for compensation and how you can seek it through a court of law, please visit our wrongful death webpage.
