Last week’s post focused on truck accidents and the time it may take to recover from such an incident. Unfortunately, a negligent driver can be just about anyone — school bus drivers, truck drivers or everyday commuters. Just one moment of negligence can lead to serious injury. For accident victims with spinal cord injuries, that moment can change their lives forever.
After a devastating accident, victims and their families are likely to feel many different emotions. One such emotion may be anger or even rage directed at the negligent driver. While usually damaging accidents aren’t caused on purpose, carelessness can still be a terrible trait behind the wheel. It is possible to hold drivers accountable when their negligence has severely injured someone else.
Some of the most serious injuries in motor vehicle accidents are spinal injuries. These injuries can result in partial or full paralysis, requiring expensive medical treatment and, perhaps, lifelong care. Recovering compensation to pay for these costs can mean fighting with insurance companies and their highly-trained and well-paid lawyers. In this situation, it can be crucial to your success to have a skilled lawyer on your side.
