A report from the Joplin Globe illustrates just how dangerous local highways can be. The article lists a series of vehicle accidents that happened on October 27th in southwestern Missouri. In one single night, a total of four accidents, involving eight cars and one motorcycle, resulted in six injuries. Fortunately, there were no fatalities, but many of the injured people were taken to area hospitals for treatment.
If you or a family member has suffered a head or spinal cord injury in a vehicle accident, you may endure some financial hardships. While your insurance company may cover some of the expenses resulting from an accident, you can still be left with unpaid bills. If the accident was the result of another party’s negligence, you may be able to receive compensation from them through a personal injury claim. Damages from a personal injury claim can include:
- Property damage
- Medical bills (including ambulance fees, emergency room fees, hospital stays, and surgeries)
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent injury or disability
- Loss of wages due to time off from work
- Costs of physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Cost of medications
- Cost of special equipment (such as wheelchairs and ramps)
To get the compensation you deserve in a personal injury claim, it is important to be represented by an experienced vehicle accident lawyer.
