As much as the insurance industry has managed to quantify and parse out the various costs associated with loss due to accidents, there is no actuarial table that can assess and determine the full scope of financial loss someone might suffer as a result of a car wreck.
The range of possible injury is huge. A crash from which one person might walk away unscathed can leave another with anything from a serious gash to a life-altering brain injury. And while the cost of treating an injury might be one thing in one part of the country, it might be completely different and higher in San Antonio.
If you become the victim of an accident due to someone's negligence, recklessness or some form of distraction, you could find yourself out of commission and under medical care for days, weeks, months or more. The nature of the damage could require extensive physical therapy and chronic pain could dictate an expensive course of drug treatment and management.
Serious trauma has a way of resulting in extended time away from work. If that happens in your case, what impact will that have on you, your job, and your broader family -- especially if they depend on your income?
These are some of the considerations that attorneys with experience in the area of personal injury law understand need to be addressed. They are not the kinds of things, though, that most Texans are prepared to deal with under the best of conditions. And they certainly aren't likely to know what to do or how quickly to do it when they are appropriately focused on getting healthy again.
