It is easy to underestimate the seriousness of a car accident. The trouble is, they are so common as to be unremarkable, until you have been involved in one and suffered injuries that are often serious, long-lasting and life changing.
Millions of crashes happen every year. You may ignore them when they are on the evening news here in Lexington, but if you have suffered severe injuries after a crash, there is no ignoring them. In addition to the immediate cost of medical treatment and care, you may also have long-term medical costs.
Your injuries may have produced chronic pain and require repeated surgeries, rehabilitation and other therapy. You may have reduced capacity for work or be forced to either take a lower-level position with less responsibility or work fewer hours. In the most severe case, you may be permanently disabled.
