One of the most challenging aspects of the aftermath of a vehicle collision are the unresolved issues at hand, most often relating to how past medical expenses will be paid for and what can be done about future costs of treatment and care. Unfortunately, these factors are only a small piece of the bigger picture. To help you cope physically, financially, and emotionally after a car crash, you may want to explore your legal options for holding negligent parties liable and getting compensation for your losses.

What to Expect from Insurance Companies

Dealing with insurance companies after a car accident can be a stressful and draining experience. Most of us hope that our insurance company would have our best interests in mind, but this isn’t always how it works. The best way to deal with the insurance company may be to be as cautious as possible. What you tell the insurance company can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.

Some insurance companies make their own profits their priority, rather than the wellbeing of the claimant. Before you share the details of your accident with your insurance company, and especially before you talk to the insurance company of anyone involved in the accident, you may want to first speak with an attorney who can provide you with insight and guidance. An attorney is familiar with the common tactics of insurance companies to give claimants the runaround and offer much lower settlements than a person may be entitled to. If you chose to hire a lawyer to help you pursue an injury claim or lawsuit, he or she may be able to deal with the insurance companies for you.

Damages to Recover in Green Lake

The extent of damages caused by a car accident frequently depends on the severity of the collision. When a vehicle crash is the result of another party’s recklessness, an injury claim or lawsuit may be filed to obtain economic and non-economic damages.

As economic damages, medical bills accumulate fast after a vehicle collision, especially when an individual requires multiple surgeries, lengthy hospitalization, long-term medication prescriptions, home care, and physical therapy. Even if your health insurance covers most of these, the financial strain adds up, particularly when an injury victim needs years of medical treatment and rehabilitation. Getting compensated for lost wages and benefits may also be important for someone who has to take a leave of absence or isn’t able to return to their previous job due to their injuries or permanent disability.

Non-economic damages may provide an individual with restitution for pain and suffering, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and other forms of emotional distress.
