How a Lawyer Can Help You Heal after an Accident
Accidents can happen at any time to even the most careful drivers. When they occur, the injuries sustained can be severe, impacting nearly every aspect of your life. You may be dealing with large medical expenses and the need for ongoing treatments, while being unable to work or engage in hobbies and activities with friends and loved ones. Recovery may be an uphill battle, and you could find yourself facing disabilities and impairments that will affect your life for years to come.
At the Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic, our Florida personal injury lawyers understand how devastating car accident injuries can be, both to you personally, as well as to your family members. We offer caring, compassionate legal service to assist you through the healing process, while providing the kind of aggressive representation needed to seek the compensation you deserve. Acting as a strong legal advocate, we can help minimize the impacts of a car accident while helping you get better.
Car Accidents and Injuries
According to the latest research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 5 million car accidents occur in the United States each year, causing serious and potentially life-threatening injuries for as many as 2 million drivers and passengers. While some accidents result from traffic, road, and weather conditions, the majority are caused by careless driving behaviors, such as speeding, disregarding traffic signals, and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Injuries that result from an accident can vary depending on where you were seated in the vehicle and the speed at which you were hit, as well as the type of impact. NHTSA data indicates that the most common types of injuries include:
- Muscle and tendon strains, sprains, and tears
- Bone fractures, particularly in the leg, pelvic, rib, and shoulder regions
- Dislocated joints in the shoulders, hips, pelvis, and knees
- Deep lacerations involving the need for stitches
- Severe burns and road abrasions
- Amputated limbs
- Back and neck injuries, including herniated disks and damage to the spinal cord
- Head injuries, such as concussions, skull fractures, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)
Any of these injuries can be serious enough to cause permanent impairments that could significantly reduce your quality of life, while placing a heavy burden on family and friends in terms of providing the care you need in order to recover.
How We Can Assist You in Recovery from a Crash
In addition to the pain and suffering you are likely dealing with, the effects of a car accident on your family can be significant. The healing process is often a slow one, requiring a potentially lengthy hospital stay, rehabilitation, and the need for ongoing care, while leaving you unable to work or provide for your loved ones. Your family may be dealing with serious financial insecurity during this time, as they struggle to make up for your lost income while facing a flood of medical bills.
At a time like this, you need comprehensive legal representation from an accident lawyer who can defend your rights while ensuring your best interests are protected. At the Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic, we have extensive experience in assisting people who are recovering from all types of injuries. Examples of how a lawyer can help you heal after an accident include the following:
- Helping You Recover Lost Wages
Financial insecurity due to your injuries could harm your family now and for years to come. Through an insurance claim or by filing a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf, we can assist you in seeking compensation for the wages you have lost, as well as estimating any future losses in income your injuries are likely to cause.
- Seeking the Maximum Amount of Compensation Allowed by Law
At the Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic, we have the legal knowledge and experience necessary to seek on your behalf the maximum amount of compensation for the injuries you have suffered. We can negotiate with the insurance company for a settlement that covers the losses you and your loved ones have suffered, both now and in the future. In certain cases, your interests may be better suited by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver and his or her insurer.
