Wellington Personal Injury Lawyer
Accidents can happen anywhere. You may be on your regular commute to work, visiting a friend, or enjoying a leisurely afternoon on the water, and the negligent actions of another person could, in one instant, dramatically change your life. Car accidents caused by distracted driving, slips and falls caused by a property owner’s failure to maintain safe premises, boating accidents caused by another operator’s negligence, or other unexpected traumatic events can cause injuries ranging from moderate to severe, or even fatal.
In Wellington, injured accident victims may be eligible to pursue legal action against the party at fault for the accident by filing a civil claim. This may result in the injured accident victim receiving compensation that may help cover financial losses they have incurred or may incur in the future as a result of their injuries.
Our team of Wellington personal injury lawyers may be able to help injured accident victims recover both economic and non-economic damages. These may include:
- Lost wages due to missed work
- Reduced future earning capability
- Medical expenses
- Prescription medications
- Ambulance services
- Pain and suffering
- Mobility aids, assistive medical equipment
- Home modifications to accommodate newly acquired disabilities
- Housekeeping services
- Psychological counseling
- Mileage expenses to and from medical appointments
- And possibly more
Each case is unique. Circumstances and available compensation may vary. To discuss the details of your case, and learn whether you might be entitled to compensation through legal action, contact us today at 1-800-JUSTICE or through our online form, and schedule a free initial consultation with Preszler Injury Lawyers.
The Impacts of an Injury
Accidents can happen as a result of certain people failing to take into consideration the safety of those around them. When an accident caused by someone’s negligence inflicts injuries upon others, the unsuspecting victims may sustain monumentally adverse effects.
Just as the circumstances of accidents can vary widely, so too can the kinds of injuries that often result. The injuries sustained in accidents may require dedicated medical attention and lengthy hospitalization, as well as an ongoing process of physical and psychological therapy. If an individual has acquired a new disability, they may be forced to undertake significant adjustments to their very way of life.
Common examples of injuries sustained in Wellington accidents may include:
- Broken or fractured bones
- Musculoskeletal injuries
- Cuts and lacerations
- Strains and sprains
- Internal organ damage
- Facial and dental injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- And more
The trauma of a catastrophic injury, or indeed any injury could contribute to potentially serious, debilitating issues related to an accident victim’s mental health. Not only may an individual be forced to endure tremendous physical pain, a disruption to their day to day routine, the inability to work or engage in social activities as they did in the past, but there may be significant financial stresses in the form of medical bills and a lack of income. Sadly, it is not uncommon for individuals who have survived a traumatic accident to experience mental health issues as a result of someone else’s negligence.
Common examples of mental health conditions injured accident survivors may develop include:
- Substance abuse disorder
- Insomnia and other sleep disorders
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- And more
The financial impacts of an injury can be profound. Many survivors of personal injury accidents face mounting medical bills on top of their day-to-day expenses such as the costs of rent or mortgage payments. Out of pocket expenses such as the cost of transportation to and from medical appointments, as well as modifications that must be made to one’s home in order to accommodate newly acquired disabilities, can add up to overwhelming amounts. In some cases, depending on the severity of injuries, a person may no longer be able to continue working in their field, or indeed in any profession at all. This may force an individual into such debt that they struggle to afford basic necessities, no longer able to support themselves or their families.
At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that no one should have to shoulder the financial burden of someone else’s negligence. If you have been injured in an accident caused by the wrongful or negligent actions of another person, you may be eligible for compensation.
