It is, perhaps, a masterpiece of understatement to say that a car accident can be a challenging and painful event in one’s life. Depending on the severity, you may suffer from a large range of emotional, physical, and financial issues, from repairs to your vehicle to costly medical expenses you may need to cover for your own personal injuries. There are also less obvious costs such as time lost from work and the loss of your car while it is being repaired. And even after the car is fixed and the body mends, the psychological and emotional suffering of those involved may continue for years to come.
With so much at stake in the wake of a traumatic, shock-inducing event, it’s understandable that many people sleepwalk through car accidents without a full awareness or grasp on the details. But when it comes to making sure that you are compensated for your injuries and losses, these details, and your actions in the event of a car accident, are vitally important if you end up in court.
