What You Need to Know If You Are Injured in a Car Accident
Most of the American population is prepared in the event of a car accident. Many states require drivers to carry at east limited liability insurance, and it is a rare mobile phone that doesn’t have a built in camera to take photos immediately after the accident. On the other hand, what so very few drivers are prepared for is dealing with personal injury after being hurt in a crash. In addition to the usual details that need to be addressed immediately when you are involved in an auto accident, you may be in pain and struggling to think clearly. You may not even realize you are injured until several hours after the accident has occurred. Many people even sign insurance forms without fully reading what they are agreeing to, and that is where your personal injury can go from inconvenient to extremely expensive with just a few strokes of a pen.
Automotive insurance policies can help you cover your medical costs and the cost to repair or replace your vehicle. This is fairly common knowledge, and the reason most drivers insure their cars and keep their policy up to date. What you may not know is that many auto insurance policies also cover wages lost as a result of personal injury in a car accident. You read that correctly: auto insurance can compensate you for the time you missed at work due to a personal injury in a car crash.
Injuries from car accidents can cause a great deal of pain and suffering, and the road to recovery often involves extended periods of treatment, plenty of rest, and physical therapy to help restore any mobility or utility you lost as a result of the accident. All of that translates to a lot of time off from work to heal up and get back to your life again. Don’t dip into paid time off or your savings: get the money you deserve for wages lost from the insurance company.
