What types of damages can be suffered in a car accident?

Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye. One second, you may be driving home from work the same way you do every day and in the next second, you can be hurt and on the side of the road trying to figure out what just happened.

Despite the fact that crashes can happen so quickly, the effects of a collision can linger on long after the accident in the form of serious damages. While some damages are quite obvious, some are not. It can be crucial to understand the many different ways your life can be negatively affected by a car crash as it could help you decide whether to file a legal claim or not.

Some of the more obvious consequences of a crash include things like:

  • Having to get your car repaired or replaced
  • Suffering broken bones or serious cuts that need to be treated right away
  • Needing an ambulance to take you to the hospital
  • Being unable to work for days, weeks or longer because of your injuries

There are many other types of damages that are also commonly suffered as a result of a crash, but you may not even be aware of them right away. These could include:

  • Ongoing therapy for physical or emotional injuries
  • Exacerbation of pre-existing injuries
  • The toll an accident or the resulting injuries takes on your relationship with your spouse or family
  • Injuries that are permanent or disfiguring

It is important to understand that you may be able to seek compensation for these and other damages if you have been injured in a crash. Even if you think an accident wasn't that serious, damages often turn out to be much more substantial than victims and their families realize at first.

Because of this, it can be helpful to discuss your situation with an attorney. Not only can a personal injury lawyer help prepare you for some of the financial, physical and emotional challenges ahead, he or she can also guide you through the legal process of filing a claim to seek compensation for damages you have suffered.
