A car crash can be a real pain, but you can seek compensation

You're driving along on your way to the grocery store. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, a car strikes you from behind and injures you. Suddenly, buying eggs and milk drops on your priority list, and getting medical treatment becomes your main priority.

Sometimes, these types of motor vehicle accidents happen due to the carelessness of another motorist in California. In this type of situation, you typically have the right to seek compensation. Here is a glimpse at the types of damages you might want to look into seeking if injured in a car crash resulting from another driver's negligence.

Medical costs

In an automobile collision, your injuries may range from minor ones -- such as bruises -- to more serious ones. For instance, you may experience a permanent disability, such as paralysis. In some cases, you might not experience any symptoms immediately after the accident but then need extra medical attention later on. This is why seeking medical care right after your crash is paramount if you feel that you have suffered injuries. Medical expenses stemming from an accident might include the following:

  • Ambulance fees
  • Medical care accessories (for instance, crutches and heat pads)
  • Cognitive therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Doctor consultations
  • In-home care

Health care experts and doctors can also provide estimates of the costs you may incur in the future due to your injuries -- for instance, if you might need extra therapy or medical treatment down the road. You might be able to pursue compensation to cover such expenses through a personal injury claim.

Pain and suffering

As part of your accident-related personal injury claim, you might also be able to seek compensation for pain and suffering. Pain and suffering might include emotional or mental damage resulting from the car collision, such as stress or anxiety.

If a negligent driver caused you to suffer injuries in a car crash, monetary compensation cannot undo the events leading to the collision. However, it may help you to experience a sense of justice following the accident and thus make it easier to move forward from such an ordeal. Additionally, this compensation could also help you address financial hardships resulting from the accident.
