Getting Compensation for the Unseen Effects of an Accident

On Behalf of | Jun 28, 2018 | Car Accidents

A car accident can change your life and leave your Colorado family dealing with a significant financial impact for years to come. Even if you cannot easily identify or quantify the true and lasting consequences of your accident, you still have the right to fight for your full and fair recovery.

Motor vehicle accidents can affect you in ways that people may not be able to see or understand. While it is difficult to place a monetary value on things such as your loss of certain abilities, you can seek damages through a valid personal injury claim. Through a civil claim, you can seek restitution not only for your financial losses and medical expenses but for other types of damage as well.

Unseen damage with serious side effects

Every car accident is different, and sometimes, the ways it will affect a person are not visible. Any unseen damage is still significant, and for many people, this damage can lead to serious financial and physical issues as well. It is e prudent for you to seek non-economic damages through your personal injury claim.

These claims may include:

  • Emotional distress
  • Shortened lifespan due to your injuries
  • Disfigurement or physical impairment because of your injuries
  • Continued mental anguish
  • Loss of your ability to enjoy certain things in life
  • Loss of your personal reputation or your ability to earn a living
  • Loss of companionship

No one can look at you and see a physical scar or injuries because of these specific things, but they are as real and can have negative consequences for you and your family.

Helping your family move forward

As you prepare your civil claim after a serious car accident, you would be wise to consider seeking noneconomic damages as well as specific financial damages. It may seem impossible to put a price tag on these things, but you have the right to financial support as you face new challenges and obstacles after an accident.

A complete evaluation of your case can help you understand your options and how you can seek appropriate recompense for the emotional and mental trauma you suffered in an accident.
