Many of our readers may know that car accidents are the most common type of traffic accidents in the United States. In Oklahoma alone an estimated 28,000 people suffer from debilitating injuries or death as a result of these accidents every year. People who have been involved in car collisions and only suffered minor injuries may consider themselves lucky, as many car accidents often lead to serious injuries and fatalities. Those injuries can cause temporary or permanent disability.
Following a car accident, your only focus should be on recovering from your injuries. Depending on the injuries, you may have to take some time off of work until your injuries are fully healed. Once the bills arrive, however, you may be surprised at the costly medical expenses. Your insurance may not be enough to cover those expenses. Aside from the medical expenses, you may have lost money after losing time off of work during your hospital stay. Lost wages and medical expenses are some of the most common losses of car accident victims. Fortunately, all of those can be part of the compensation in a successful personal injury lawsuit.
