Common Costs in Hollywood Car Crashes

The family-based legal team at Flaxman Law Group has worked with thousands of injured people and car accident survivors. One thing we have found is that many people underestimate how much a car accident can cost them in the long run.

So let’s look at some common expenses you could face in this situation.

  • Medical Expenses. You may need to pay for immediate treatment, including ambulance costs, initial assessments, and visits to the ER. You also need to factor in ongoing medical appointments, physical therapy, medications, medical devices, and anything else you’ll need.
  • Property Damage. You might need to replace or repair not just your car but also any personal property you had in the car that was damaged, too.
  • Lost Income. You might lose income if you’re unable to work while you heal. Being unable to work for a time can also cost you opportunities. For example, you may miss out on the chance to be considered for any promotions that happen while you can’t work.
  • Legal Costs. You might need to pay costs to file a lawsuit or hire an attorney. You may also lose more time at work to attend court proceedings.
  • Insurance Costs. There are the out-of-pocket costs your insurance doesn’t cover. You also need to consider that both your car insurance and health insurance premiums may go up, especially if you’re permanently injured and now have a “pre-existing condition.”
  • Emotional Costs. These are too often overlooked, but remember that you may need to seek therapy or counseling to deal with the emotional distress of the accident. If you suffer depression or anxiety because of your crash and injuries, you may also lose time at work or experience a lower quality of life until you seek help.
  • Transportation Expenses. You may need to rely on public transportation, taxis, or a rental while your car is being repaired or replaced or while you can’t drive. You may need to travel for medical care, judicial proceedings, and other needs related to your claim or injury.
  • Home Modifications. You may need to update your home (or even your car) if you have long-term or permanent injuries that affect your mobility. You may need to install grab bars, ramps, and other items, for example, and pay to have your home evaluated for the accessibility features you’ll need.
  • Personal Help. If you’re a parent, you may need to pay for childcare services while you heal. You may also need help with household chores, including maintaining your yard, while your mobility is affected by an injury.
  • Long-Term Care. Should you be injured to the point that you can’t care for yourself, you may need in-home nursing care or may need to stay in an assisted living facility. Depending on your injuries, you may be able to eventually move back home or this may be a permanent transition.

A serious injury can cost thousands or millions of dollars, and if your car crash wasn’t your fault you shouldn’t have to shoulder this burden by yourself. As soon as possible after your collision, you can contact Flaxman Law Group at 866-352-9626 to find out how you can start protecting your rights to compensation. Meet with a Hollywood car accident attorney who can help you accurately establish your potential costs and review any options you might have for pursuing fair compensation.

Charlie is a very skilled attorney that advocates hard for his clients. But the best part is he is an all around great guy. He cares about helping and doing what is right for people and his community. And he is not afraid to fight against those who do wrong or against threats to our world. He is fluent in Spanish as well. Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
