However, very quickly the financial reality of traffic collision will make itself known.
These types of roadway collisions often result in severe financial distress. If a family has lost a loved one, for example, they may have one less income earner in the household and they may face considerable final medical expenses, memorial costs, and more. In addition, family members who have been severely injured in the accident may be unable to work for weeks or months. They may never be able to return to their careers due to the injuries they have sustained.
This type of financial situation where families have rising medical bills on the one hand and decreasing income on the other can lead to financial distress, bankruptcy, eviction, ruined credit ratings, and other severe problems. Many families believe that medical coverage or their car insurance will help pay for their costs, but unfortunately all too often this turns out not to be the case. Insurance companies may undervalue claims or may deny that certain costs are covered by a policy.
