Motor vehicle accidents cause more than physical injuries

Car accidents frequently injure and even kill the people who are involved. It can be difficult to really understand the devastating aftermath without experiencing it firsthand, so this probably feels like an abstract concept to Connecticut drivers who have never been in an accident. Even you might not have realized just how serious motor vehicle accidents are until you were hit by another driver.

Data from the Connecticut Department of Public Health shows that car accidents are one of the most common causes of injury-related deaths. Victims just like you who do survive often end up with more than just physical injuries. You might be experiencing emotional trauma from the accident itself is common, and ongoing pain and suffering only complicates your situation.

On top of all this, you have to shoulder financial burdens for injuries that were not even your fault. There are the immediate costs to consider, like bills for going to the emergency room, surgery and other treatments you needed right after the wreck. You also have to think about the long-term financial implications of your injuries, like follow up visits and ongoing treatments.

You always do your best to drive the posted speed limit, watch out for other drivers and follow the rules of the road, so maybe you never imagined that you would be involved in a car accident. Motor vehicle accidents can happen to anyone though, even the safest drivers in Connecticut. While this may feel unfair, you can choose to take action by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Our website might help you understand why these types of claims are useful for recovering compensation.
