When you were involved in a car crash, you knew the outcome wasn’t going to be perfect. You were burned badly and had many surgeries once you were hospitalized. It has taken many weeks to stabilize.
At this point, you just want to be fairly compensated for all you’ve been through. You hope to have reconstructive surgery on your face and areas where it’s easy to see significant burns and scarring, but it’s all costly. You need to make sure that you can afford the care you need.
After a crash, the other party may be held liable
After a serious car crash, the authorities and your insurance agents will determine who is at fault. If the other driver was at fault in your case, then you should have the right to pursue a claim against them or their insurance. Burns like yours are significant and had the potential to lead to complications that could have resulted in your death. Now, you’ll live with significant scars and wounds that will always make you stand out. This disfigurement is a part of your life now, but you want to have the financial support to have further treatments.
It is fair to look into filing a claim against the driver who caused your injuries. If they are at fault for what happened, then their insurance should be willing to settle with you. Your attorney will work closely with you to make sure that the insurance agency is fair and that any settlement offer you receive is reviewed prior to acceptance. With the right support, you can work toward obtaining fair compensation for everything you’ve been through.
