Auto accidents are extremely unpredictable and can happen at any moment. Injuries can be life-altering and require extensive surgeries and physical therapy to overcome or manage. Unfortunately, most severe accidents can have a major financial burden on victims. Not only are they left with stacking medical bills to cover the various surgeries, therapies, and appointments, but quite often, injured drivers are unable to return to work.

  • Medical bills for all treatments related to the injuries from the accident
  • Lost wages from being out of work to care for injuries
  • Lost earnings for individuals forced out of work long-term or permanently
  • Loss of companionship for spouses who are suffering
  • Pain and suffering, which includes emotional and physical
  • Mental anguish
