Recovery after car accidents: Where to seek support

On Behalf of | Jan 17, 2019 | Firm News

Louisiana highways are dangerous. When car accidents occur, victims often suffer serious or even fatal injuries. Those who survive their injuries may suffer serious emotional, physical or financial distress.

If you or your loved one suffer injury because a driver was distracted, intoxicated or acting reckless behind the wheel, why should you have to bear the full financial burden associated with the incident? It is no secret that medical care is expensive, even when treating minor injuries. Having to take time off work during recovery, obtain car repairs or perhaps even purchasing a new vehicle can cause financial stress that intensifies post-accident suffering.

The good news is that you can tap into local resources for support. If you or your family member is struggling emotionally, you may want to consider meeting with a therapist in your area who has helped other accident victims cope with their conditions. The state allows you to seek financial recovery for your losses, as well. In fact, many accident victims file claims through the civil justice system, then use court-awarded compensation to help alleviate any and all costs associated with their injuries, including expenses that arise from counseling services.
