Seeking compensation in a defective road claim is not easy. The defendants in these cases tend to be powerful government agencies, municipalities, and construction companies who are protected by legislation and by powerful insurance companies and teams of attorneys. However, seeking compensation can also be important. In some cases, if poor road design has caused your accident you may be able to recover for:
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Medical expenses
- Medical or pharmaceutical devices
- Surgery costs
- Emergency medical treatment
- At-home care or long-term care
- Rehabilitation, therapy, counseling, and other medical services
- Incidental costs
- Future expected medical expenses
- Future lost income opportunities
- Skin grafts and other so-called cosmetic procedures that may not be covered by your medical insurance
- Property damage
- Car repair car replacement costs
- Other costs related to your injuries
Seeking compensation for your injuries can help protect your financial future and your family’s future after a crash. Without seeking compensation, you may find yourself having to pay tens of thousands of dollars or even much more in out-of-pocket expenses. Even if you have excellent medical care and car insurance coverage, you may find that your claim is undervalued or that the insurance money does not truly pay for all of the costs of your injuries.
If you accept insurance money and then find out after the fact that the insurance money does not cover your full costs, you may have accidentally signed away some of your rights and you may have a hard time getting additional compensation for your injuries. This is why the time to call a personal injury attorney is immediately following your accident. The sooner you can consult with an attorney, the sooner you and your attorney can take steps to protect your rights.
