We’d all like to think that when we get into a car accident, the result of the crash will leave us unharmed and our car only slightly damaged. These fender benders are obviously far better than a serious motor vehicle accident, but they are often not what happens when someone gets into an accident. The crash leaves the person feeling woozy, or they may suffer from whiplash or a traumatic brain injury, or they may break bones or suffer terrible injuries that leave them paralyzed or worse.
The possibilities are, unfortunately, endless when it comes to injuries in the wake of a car accident. The victims then have to focus on their recovery, and when the time is right, they can consider what their next legal steps will be.
After a car accident, the injuries suffered by the victims could keep them out of work for an extensive period of time. The injuries they suffered could require surgery, rehabilitation, and physical therapy, all of which will lead to some hefty medical bills — and it could inflict serious mental pain and anguish.
If the accident you were injured in involved a distracted driver, or a reckless driver, or an otherwise dangerous driver, then you should consider you legal options. That driver could, and should, be held liable for his or her actions. You will likely have questions about how to proceed — and if you live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Law Firm of Alexander D. Crecca could help you with your case.
