Car accidents are horrible events that can change the course of your life. When you are injured in a car accident, time might seem to stand still — only it really continues to move forward. While you are trying to heal from the accident, the bills keep rolling in. Your expenses keep adding up. You might be off work because of the injury so the lack of income is adding more stress to the situation.
We know that this is a trying time for you. Between trying to get better so you can reclaim your life and worrying about all things financial, you might feel like you are in the midst of a perfect storm. We can’t take away the impacts of the injuries, but we can help you to seek some financial stability.
We have to consider a host of different factors when we are trying to determine how to handle your injury claim. We think about the cause of the accident so that we can determine who is liable for the injuries you suffered. We think about the effects of the accident so that we can determine what types of damages to claim. We think about what damages you might suffer in the future so that we can try to address those now.
As your case moves forward, you might find that you are thinking about seeking a settlement. This isn’t something that is possible in all cases; however, it might be beneficial in the cases in which it is a possibility. A settlement can often resolve a case faster so that you have the money you need sooner.
