Getting seriously injured in an accident can quickly completely change your life. Broken bones, strains, sprains, and concussions can all happen within the blink of an eye, leaving you stuck living a lesser version of your life for months. More severe injuries such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, and other catastrophic injuries have the ability to completely reshape your future.
A Severe Injury Can Harm Your Financial Status
As you may already know if you’ve been injured, accidents and the costs associated with recovering pile up quickly—even with good insurance. Additionally, if you’ve been seriously injured, you will likely need to take time away from work to allow yourself to heal. Which again, may cause you to lose even more money.
A Severe Injury Can Derail Your Career
If you’re an individual with a career, you understand the importance of performing at your best and working together with your co-workers. While your employer may understand that your injury was out of your control, missing weeks to months of work may cause you to miss out on opportunities for advancement. You may also miss out on a promotion or bonus during your leave, which may change the path your career follows.
A Serious Injury Can Cause a Loss of Enjoyment in Things You Once Loved
It’s very common for individuals who have been seriously injured to develop physical limitations which will keep them from doing things they once enjoyed before their accident. Let’s say you were an active individual before your accident. You went to the gym often, enjoyed hiking, and riding bikes. In your accident, you lost your leg and shattered your wrist. You will likely need time away for a few months, or years before you’re able to return to your prior activity level. In the event that you sustained a spinal cord injury, paralysis may keep you from ever returning to some of the things you enjoyed before your injury.
A Serious Injury Can Result in Serious Compensation
Getting injured due to the negligence of another party is something that can change your life forever. New York recognizes this and has laws in place to help ensure that those who have been wrongly injured have the chance to pursue compensation to allow them to recover properly—ultimately allowing them to return to their pre-accident lifestyle, as best as they can.
