Bay Area Personal Injury Attorneys Discuss The Topic

A recent news article indicates that fatalities from vehicle collisions have risen over the last decade. Unfortunately, the injuries sustained in vehicle accidents, whether minor or major, can have a significant impact on your daily life.

Most personal injury victims are hesitant to file claims as they don’t think it’s worth pursuing compensation, or they don’t understand how the injury will affect them months or years down the line.

In this post, we enlighten you on how serious injuries can disrupt your life and why you would want to contact a San Jose personal injury lawyer regardless of the severity of the injury.

Financial costs

Injuries can be quite expensive to treat whether you are the victim or the one shouldering the treatment costs. Depending on the nature and severity of the injuries, the overall treatment cost could go beyond the initial treatment, and include such costs as continuous care, physical therapy, and emotional counseling.

Can hurt your career

Injuries often affect your ability to work or earn a living. The longer the injuries keep you away from work, the higher more income you lose. It’s also important to mention the cost of losing out on opportunities for career growth and advancement.

Physical abnormality

Injuries can cause significant changes in appearance, including physical deformities. For example, burns, cuts, lacerations, dog bites, and other forms of injuries involving damaged skin, result in scars on your body.

Severe injuries such as spine injuries, broken bones, and sprains could result in drastic deformities, and sometimes even paralyzation or loss of mobilization.

Compromised quality of life

The pain and suffering as a result of the injury could seriously compromise your ability to participate in the day-to-day activities you once enjoyed. Such activities can even become a burden or impossible to complete.

Pain and suffering

In most cases, personal injuries result in physical pain and emotional suffering not only to the injured party but also to their friends and family.

Some injuries leave permanent emotional scars on the victims no matter how healed they might appear on the surface. Accidents that result in the loss of a loved leaves a permanent scar on those left behind.
