Critical Injuries in a Car Accident

Critical injuries in a Folsom two-vehicle accident are those considered potentially life-threatening and require immediate treatment. These types of trauma may include:

  • Serious arm or leg fractures
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Crush injuries
  • Amputations
  • Loss of sight

Help in Recovering Compensation Following a Serious Injury

Because of the seriousness of a critical injury, those who experience a critical injury are often hospitalized for a long period, lose their ability to work and experience serious pain and suffering. An injury lawyer’s job is to help them recover the compensation they deserve from the negligent person or entity who caused their trauma. 

Types of Recoverable Compensation 

When a negligent driver causes a Folsom two-vehicle accident that causes serious trauma, the injured person can recover compensation in several areas, including:

  • The cost of medical expenses: You can recover all medical expenses resulting from the accident. This coverage spans ambulance and hospitalization fees, surgeries, doctors’ bills, medications, and rehabilitative treatment. By keeping receipts, you also gain reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses for gas or parking. Should your injury persist up to settlement time, your lawyer will estimate future expenses and include them.
  • Unpaid wages: If an injury forces you off work, leading to lost wages, you can recover these earnings. If you need to accept a lower-paying job because your injuries prevent you from performing your previous work, you can recover the wage difference. In cases of permanent disability, you’re entitled to recover your wages up until retirement age.
  • Pain and suffering: Your injury lawyer can help you recover compensation for both your physical and emotional trauma. In many cases, the person who was injured in an accident suffers from depression, anxiety, sleeplessness or nightmares and other disturbing symptoms. Some are forced to seek professional treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder to deal with those symptoms. The cost of the professional treatment is recoverable.

How Can I Afford to Hire an Injury Lawyer to Handle My Case?

Injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that you owe them nothing until your case has successfully concluded. If you do not recover compensation, then you owe them nothing. In addition, it has been shown that those who use an injury lawyer end up recovering two to three times what they would have settled for if they handled the claim themselves.
