You were traveling to visit family one weekend when a semitruck crossed the center lane and hit your vehicle head-on. You were fortunate enough to be inside a large SUV yourself, so the injuries you suffered were survivable.
Despite surviving the accident, the reality is that you’ve been badly hurt. You have a traumatic brain injury, spinal injury and broken bones. You’ve had several surgeries and may need more in the future.
Complex personal injury cases need special attention
If you have a complex personal injury case, then it may need special attention. With so many different injuries impacting your life, it may be hard to know just how much you’ll recover or when you’ll be able to get back to living a normal life. Your spinal injury may leave you with chronic pain or paralysis, your brain injury could cause trouble with your speech. Broken bones take months to heal correctly, and every aspect of your injuries and case impact your ability to do the things you love.
Get the most out of your case with the right support
Any personal injury case can be taxing on the victims. Why? They’re already dealing with injuries and all the pain and frustration that comes with them. Your attorney knows how much you have to focus on your own recovery right now, which is why it’s a good idea to get the personal injury case started as soon as you can and to leave it to your attorney to handle the negotiations. Using several kinds of documents and support, your attorney can fight for a fair settlement. Some documents they may need include:
- Medical records
- Letters from doctors describing the impact of your injuries on your daily life
- Paperwork showing lost wages
- Documentation for changes that have to be made to your home due to a new or worsened disability
…and many others.
Using these and other documents about your case, an attorney’s job is to get you as much compensation as possible. If your injuries will affect you for the rest of your life, then it’s important that there is the right amount of financial support available for you when you need it. Whether that is needed in a few years for an additional surgery or used to upgrade your home to be handicap accessible, the funds are necessary for making your life easier after such a severe auto collision.
