Making Sense Of Your Options After A Car Accident
In the chaos after a car accident, you may feel completely stunned and disoriented. The emotional shock may last for weeks as you undergo a whirlwind of medical treatment and start to come to terms with this new reality. If you lost a loved one in a fatal accident, the all-encompassing grief can make it difficult to think about anything else.
Sooner or later, however, you will find yourself confronting the complex legal issues that come up after a car accident. The insurance company may be pressuring you for a statement. The medical bills or funeral expenses may be piling up, and if you’re unable to work, you may be struggling to make ends meet.
