Major or minor: all car accidents cause problems
Being involved in a car accident can upset your life in so many ways. From the moment of impact to the time when settlement issues are all finally resolved, you will be faced with many challenges. These challenges increase with the magnitude of the accident.
The best-case scenario for a collision is a minor fender bender in which no one is injured. However, even a small accident can present problems. For example, if you are hit by an uninsured driver, you may have difficulty receiving compensation for damages, leaving you to foot the bill. As you may well know, even minor auto body damage can be costly to repair.
On the other side of the accident spectrum are collisions that cause catastrophic injuries and severe auto damage. Dealing with the aftermath of such accidents can be extremely difficult. It is possible that you or your passengers may have suffered injuries that will require extensive treatment.
In addition to emotional and physical trauma with which you must contend, you are also faced with the burden of securing a level of compensation that will cover your medical expenses. You will have to not only deal with insurance companies but in some circumstances you may wish to file a civil suit against those who were responsible for the accident.
The fact is, any car accident can create hardships and you may feel confused, stressed and frustrated when trying to obtain appropriate compensation.
