Being involved in a car accident isn’t just traumatic in the moment and in the immediate aftermath of it — for weeks, months and even years afterward, a car accident can affect your life.
The wreck itself could cause serious injuries to you and people you love. This dramatically affects your life. The injuries can make it difficult for you to perform daily tasks that you previously did with ease, and it can affect your ability to do things that you love. It can also pain you to watch your loved ones suffer due to the injuries they suffered in the car accident.
Then there are the costs associated with being in a car accident. Your insurance going up is only the beginning. You will have medical bills to pay; you may have to foot the bill for fixing your car; and there may be numerous other costs associated with being in a car accident.
On top of all of this is the psychological component. A car accident can make a driver more hesitant to get behind the wheel of a vehicle, or they may be less confident out on the road.
Car accidents are serious incidents that need to be treated as such. If you have been in a car accident and you can prove (or the police report has proven) that another driver was at fault for the wreck, you need to consult an attorney immediately to help you with any civil lawsuit you are considering. We at Trullinger & Wenk can be that attorney, and we will work hard for you and your side of the case.
