A serious car, truck or motorcycle accident can be devastating to an accident victim and his or her family in many ways.
The physical difficulties involved with recovering from a broken leg or a burn injury are compounded by the financial challenges that go along with the injury. An accident victim will need compensation for medical care and lost wages, as well as related expenses and losses.
The good news for some accident victims is that with time and effort — their own efforts at rehabilitation, as well as the care of doctors, therapists and family members — they will heal and can recover a semblance of their normal lives eventually. There may be some lingering pain or disability, but they should be able to return to work — perhaps at a different job — and rejoin their families in ordinary activities.
A catastrophic injury, on the other hand, is a different story altogether. An accident victim who has suffered from a concussion or traumatic brain injury or neck or back injury may be unable to work or participate in the care of a home and family as before. The person may be confined to a wheelchair or may be unable to walk, talk or perform ordinary tasks without assistance. Such an accident victim is likely to require the help of personal care attendants for the rest of his or her life.
