If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, it can upend the course of your future in significant and surprising ways. Overcoming the damages wrought by a serious accident can be extremely difficult and prohibitively costly. The law addresses this fact by allowing claimants to seek damages for the physical, financial, and emotional damages sustained in accidents caused by the negligence of others. If someone else’s negligence leaves you or someone you love injured, don’t wait to reach out to an experienced Murfreesboro personal injury attorney.
The damages caused by negligence-based accidents are often extensive and can include all of the following:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Emotional and physical pain and suffering
Let’s take a closer look at each.
After a serious injury, you’re likely facing mounting medical bills that you have no idea how you’re going to cover. These represent an important component of the damages you will claim in your personal injury case. Medical expenses are often wide-ranging and can include:
- Emergency care at and transportation from the scene of the accident
- Surgery and follow-up care
- Care and treatment from doctors and specialists
- Prescription medications
- Physical therapy
- Adaptive physical devices and home and vehicle adaptations
- Home health care
This list could obviously go on and on. It’s important to note that a serious injury is rarely simply treated and cured. Many serious injuries lead to extensive follow-up care and to secondary health concerns. Obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled involves carefully accounting for the full array of your medical expenses – now and into the future.
You have been injured, and you’re in the process of being treated for those injuries. In the interim, you are not only receiving nearly endless medical bills but are also looking at diminished earnings due to lost hours on the job. This naturally feels like a double-edged sword. While the immediate lost earnings associated with an injury are difficult, things become that much more difficult if your injuries lead to long term complications that preclude you from advancing your career – or even from returning to your career. Because our careers are so integral to our identities, career losses can be a serious emotional blow.
Emotional and Physical Pain and Suffering
Accidents are physically painful – and so is the care and treatment process. In addition to all this physical pain, however, there is considerable emotional pain and suffering to consider. Confronting the fact that your life has been seriously disrupted as a result of someone else’s negligence can amount to an emotional hurdle that’s difficult to overcome.
