The damaging effects of serious motor vehicle accidents

A serious accident can take physical, emotional and mental tolls on the people involved as well as their families. At Nield Law Group, APC, we have seen firsthand how lives can be completely uprooted following an incident and understand how important it is to obtain the funds necessary for medical care and other items.

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, the state saw 2,857 fatal automobile accidents in 2012. Families who lose loved ones in a crash often have to deal with financial woes in addition to their grief, as the deceased may have been the sole provider or earned a salary necessary to the family’s well-being.

Outside of a fatality, there are other consequences that can stem from an incident, such as serious injuries and property damage. People who suffer severe injuries are often left with large expenses, such as long-term medical treatment, rehabilitation and prescription medication. These types of costs are often associated with conditions such as the following:

  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Disabilities

In addition to the physical strain an accident can create, people who experience trauma are often left with emotional and mental struggles. The American Academy of Family Physicians reports that it is possible for these people to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, experiencing extreme anxiety regarding the event as well as troubling memories and flashbacks. In fact, the AAFP notes that traffic accidents have become the leading cause of PTSD.

At Nield Law Group, we understand the challenges people face following a motor vehicle accident. For more information on this topic, please visit our page on damages.
