You were on your way to work when a car, seemingly out of nowhere, crashed into you. Your own vehicle spun out into an intersection and was hit again by a passing car. In the end, you had to be rescued using the Jaws of Life.
You were rushed to the hospital in serious condition, and only now, a few days later, are you able to be awake and aware of your surroundings for any length of time. You’re frustrated that your life has been turned upside down by this unexpected event, and you want to make sure that you do all you can to make sure the other party is held responsible for their mistakes.
When you get hurt unexpectedly, do you know what to do?
After an injury like yours, you may need support when filing a claim against a driver who struck you. You’re in bed and hospitalized, and you need to be focused on your own recovery.
It’s a good idea to reach out to your attorney to discuss your legal options if you’ve been hurt in a car crash or other situation because they can take over the case and allow you the time to rest and think about your own recovery. If another person’s actions resulted in your injuries, then you may be able to hold them accountable for any bills you have, such as:
- Medical bills
- Ambulance fees
- The cost of surgery
They may also be liable for your lost wages and other ways that your injury has affected your finances. Our website has more information on what you can do if you’ve been harmed by someone’s mistake or poor decision.
