Long-Term Car Accident Costs Most Hollywood Residents Don’t Consider

If you’re in a traffic accident in Hollywood or any surrounding Florida community, you’ll probably be all too aware of your immediate costs. You may quickly get medical bills for your ambulance ride to the hospital as well as your hospital stay and emergency care. Your mechanic may be able to quickly give you an estimate for car repair bills.


However, many car accident survivors who speak with us at Flaxman Law Group are surprised when we outline what their true, long-term accident costs are likely to be. Insurance companies and doctors don’t always clearly explain likely future costs, and unfortunately this can leave car accident survivors without the information they need to make decisions about their future. At Flaxman Law Group, we’re a boutique, family-based law firm and we treat you like family. We explain to you plainly how much your car accident could cost and what you may be able to recover in a claim.

Your Potential Long-Term Car Accident Injury Costs

Long-term expenses after a serious car accident can last for months after your crash, or even for a lifetime. Common long-term injury costs include:

  • Medical costs. These can include ongoing costs such as pain management, prescription medication, physical therapy, medical devices, prosthetics, and rehabilitation. Depending on the severity of the injury, these could cost thousands or even millions of dollars over a lifetime.
  • Accessibility costs. You may need to make home modifications or car modifications if you’ve lost a limb or have become paralyzed because of your injury. Depending on your injury, you may need to adjust your lifestyle, too. For example, you may need a guide dog because of your injury. Not only are these costs significant—easily tens of thousands of dollars or more—but you will need to keep paying for accessibility features. For example, if you move or buy a new car you may need to make your new home or car accessible, too.
  • Earning potential. The wage loss impact doesn’t just affect you in the immediate aftermath of a collision. If you can’t return to your regular job because of permanent injuries, a job that does accommodate your injuries may pay less, leading to years or a lifetime of lower wages. Even just taking an extended period of time off because of your injury and then returning to work can slow your career growth and cause you to miss advancement opportunities and promotions. It can take years to catch up financially.
  • Insurance costs. After a car accident, your medical insurance and car insurance premiums will likely increase and stay higher for years to come. This can add up to thousands in increased costs. If you have suffered a permanent injury, your medical insurance rates may stay permanently higher because you have a pre-existing injury.

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
