Not all auto accidents are the tragic ones where someone dies or is seriously injured. There are far more minor auto accidents, where a driver or passenger sustains injuries that are not life-threatening, than the kind that make the evening news. However, even minor auto accidents can have a significant monetary impact, which is why you should look into your legal options if you have been involved in an auto accident.
If you’re in a minor auto accident, it’s not a good idea to just shrug it off as a “fender-bender”. Here are a few of the costs you may incur as a result of your accident: medical bills (including therapy, rehab, and counseling); medication; transportation costs involved in your medical care; pain and suffering; in-home medical care; and costs for emergency or at-the-scene care. Plus, of course, there could be damage to your vehicle. These costs add up, and you should be paid for them.
