What’re the real costs after a serious vehicle accident?

| Dec 18, 2018 | Catastrophic Injuries |

After being seriously injured in a crash, you will likely see many significant changes in your life. Having an experienced, successful lawyer on your side can make all the difference. Our attorneys and staff at Hildebrand, McLeod & Nelson, LLP, will be here to help you through the recovery and adjustment period, regardless of how long they last.

First and foremost, there are the very real physical implications of a serious accident. With significant injuries, you are likely facing health care costs that include: 

    • Ambulance fees
    • ER copays
    • ER doctor bills
    • Hospital stays
    • Check-ups and doctor’s office visits to specialists
    • Medication
    • Surgery
    • Physical Therapy

    Unfortunately, a lengthy recovery period can also keep you out of work. Depending on your job, taking a lot of time off may not be compensated. Between medical bills and being unable to work, your savings can take a hefty hit.

    People who suffer from bad crashes can also find themselves dealing with psychological issues (PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc.) that they’ve never experienced before. Pre-existing conditions could also be exacerbated. Therapy can help with these types of issues, but it will add more to your expenses. When dealing with insurance companies, counseling and mental wellness aren’t usually taken into consideration even though it’s such an impactful part of your life.

    If you have been involved in a serious accident and are struggling with the aftermath, contact our office or visit our webpage where you can find out more about how we can help. By having us help with the legal aspect of a serious vehicle accident, healing and dealing with your recovery may become that much easier for you to handle.
