A catastrophic Raleigh car accident can leave you with debilitating injuries, a stack of expenses, and a completely different future than what you had planned. A catastrophic injury involves any situation where your injuries are severe, long-lasting, or potentially permanent. An example would be a traumatic brain injury, severe disfigurement, or an injury that lead to an amputation. Although it may seem like nothing can truly make your life whole again after the accident, claiming the compensation that you deserve can go a long way towards helping to ease the financial costs and hardships that you are experiencing and will continue to experience.
A recent car accident in Sanford, North Carolina, highlights just how tragic a crash can be for the victim. Two individuals were involved in a crash on Highway 87 near Pickett Road, according to local reports. When the vehicles collided, one of them began to roll. There were two individuals in the car that rolled over. Although one of them did not have severe injuries, the other occupant had to be airlifted to a nearby hospital. The police are still investigating the reason for the crash and who is at fault.
If you are severely injured in a car accident, one of the first things that may cross your mind is how you will pay for the serious medical expenses that you are now facing. Emergency transportation services like ambulances and airlifts are incredibly expensive and can cost you several thousand dollars alone. A hospitalization along with surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and medical equipment can quickly leave you with a five or six-figure bill.
Fortunately, you do not have to pay these costs entirely by yourself. You can file a claim with your auto insurance carrier as well as the auto insurance carrier for the person who caused the accident. Filing an insurance claim is rarely straightforward, however, especially when your expenses are enormous. Having an attorney by your side to help you fight the insurance companies and ensure that they are treating you fairly can be a huge relief. This will also allow you to focus on your recovery and healing from the accident.
You also have the option of filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused the accident. This allows you to seek compensation for a wide variety of damages, including any loss of earning capacity, missed paychecks, reduced quality of life, and pain and suffering. It is important to figure out what your case is worth and to request the full amount of compensation that you deserve.
