California is home to a lot of different types of traffic sharing the road together, including cars, heavy commercial trucks, tour buses, bikes, scooters, skateboards, motorcycles, and pedestrians. With the amount of traffic on our in-town roads and busy highways, it seems like car accidents are almost inevitable. While it is common for the news to report new accidents every day, negotiating the recovery from accident injuries is not an everyday experience for most people. And, unfortunately, victims of accidents often find themselves facing complicated legal and medical challenges that threaten them financially, emotionally, and physically.
Complicated Medical Recovery for Victims of Serious Accidents
Serious accidents can be responsible for complicated medical and psychological issues, which might include:
- Multiple, complex injuries or conditions
- Brain injuries
- Physical limitations
- Infection and other complications
- Late-appearing symptoms
Additionally, in order to recover medically, accident victims may be juggling multiple care providers, the expense of care, the strain on themselves and family members, difficulty with life changes, and other stressors.
Complicated Legal Recovery for Victims of Any Accident
Even in seemingly straightforward accidents, such as those where a driver was breaking the law or driving recklessly, the legal aftermath can be filled with confusion and complex legal issues. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be facing trucking companies, bus lines, insurance companies, or other large companies that may attempt to lure you into tricks and traps or blame you for your own injury.
