Your focus should be on recovery following a car accident
Getting into a car accident with another driver is stressful in and of itself, even if the only damage was to your vehicle. But if you do experience a serious injury, the trauma that you experience can be mental as well as physical: Dealing with insurers, missing time from work, losing income even if you have short-term disability available, doctor and hospital visits, and wondering how you are going to pay all of the resultant medical costs can take a severe toll emotionally.
What may be even more stressful is if it becomes necessary to pursue a legal claim against the other driver; if his or her negligent or reckless conduct behind the wheel was the cause of the accident. You may find that the other driver’s recollection of events is starkly different from your own; he or she may even blame you for what happened. You could even find yourself on the receiving end of a lawsuit.
Recovering from an injury can be a full-time occupation. You may find yourself facing long-term rehabilitation, or even short or long-term disability. It may be possible that your ability to fully enjoy routine life activities can be permanently compromised. The last thing you need to be concerned with is the details of navigating through the legal process; you have much more important matters to see to.
