Common injuries and difficulties from Bucks car crashes

When you are a Bucks County car crash victim, you may be suffering on many levels.  The most obvious are the physical pain, the loss of income, and the increased expenses.  However, not all losses and suffering are immediately identified.  Your car wreck may continue to alter your world in unexpected ways.

Related suffering from Bucks County car wrecks

There are many stresses and losses you and your family may experience as a result of a Bucks County car crash accident.  Many of these are life-altering effects, impacting you and your family permanently.  These damages include—

Loss of income

You are entitled to compensation if your injuries prevent you from working, causing you to lose income.

Loss of occupation

Some injuries mean you can no longer perform the duties of your job or occupation.  This is called loss of future earnings capacity in a lawsuit.

Loss of support

If the accident results in death, a family member can sue for the loss of the deceased person’s income that the victim would have earned based on the work-life expectancy of the deceased.

Cost of ongoing medical expenses/treatment

On top of the substantial medical bills after an accident, the cost of future medical expenses must be calculated into your damages as well, significantly increasing the amount of damages you can be awarded. 

Property damage

In addition to your physical injuries, car damage factors into property damage awards, plus the contents of your car that were damaged in an accident.

Pain and suffering

Though difficult to quantify in dollars, the pain and suffering you endure must be factored into the losses.  Your lifestyle and your enjoyment of life may be permanently altered by the accident.  In a lawsuit, our Bucks County car wreck attorneys make sure that every compromised aspect of your lifestyle is revealed to the court and proven through witness testimony.

Mental anguish/emotional distress

In a lawsuit, mental anguish and emotional distress are sometimes considered different than pain and suffering.  You may experience some emotional distress along with the physical pain, including such anguishes as lingering fear, anxiety, shock, grief, or embarrassment.

Loss of consortium

The injured victim or the relatives may sue for the loss of the love and companionship they had before the Bucks County car wreck injury.  Loss of consortium also applies when a husband or wife becomes unable to perform chores that the other spouse previously relied on.

Lost opportunity

You can seek recovery for a lost business opportunity resulting from a Bucks County car crash when there is ample proof of a lost opportunity.
