Broadside collisions tend to be very serious. In fact, only head-on collisions produce more fatalities. Sideswipe car crashes cause a number of serious and permanent injuries, including:
- Head injuries and brain injuries
- Whiplash and soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Facial injuries
- Internal injuries
The cost of being in a serious broadside accident can be more severe than you think. You may be responsible for paying for:
- Emergency medical care
- Appointments with medical specialists
- Medical devices and expensive medical equipment
- Long-term medical care
- Follow-up doctors’ visits
- Car repair car replacement costs
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Surgical costs
- Hospital stays
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, and therapy
- The cost of making a home or car accessible if you are permanently injured
- At-home care
- Assisted living facility expenses
- Property damage or property replacement
These costs can be especially difficult because after a broadside collision, you may have to you lose weeks or even months of time at work due to your injuries. This can affect your ability to earn an income. If you have been seriously injured or permanently injured, you may never be able to return fully to your job, meaning that your accident will impact your income for the rest of your life.
While car insurance and medical insurance can help pay for some of these costs, insurance companies can undervalue serious injuries. An Insurance company’s priority is to resolve claims inexpensively and quickly. Long-term costs and possible future costs are often not considered. Incidental costs are also often not considered, meaning that you may have to pay these costs – which can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars or more – out-of-pocket. There is an alternative, however. You may be able to negotiate your insurance offer by working with a personal injury attorney in Miami Gardens or your community or you may be able to launch a personal injury claim in order to recover fair compensation from liable parties.
