Mobility loss following a car crash

| Mar 29, 2019 | Firm News, Personal Injury |

When someone is involved in a car wreck, their life may immediately transform in terrible ways. They may be hospitalized and in a great deal of pain, or they may have mental trauma and financial hardships stemming from the wreck. In some instances, people are never able to recover from an accident and the physical consequences of their injuries may follow them for the rest of their lives. For example, some car crash victims struggle with limited mobility, which can disrupt their lives in countless ways.

If you have limited mobility following a motor vehicle collision, you may not be able to perform your job duties any longer. Or, you may be forced to quit a hobby that you have enjoyed for many years, such as surfing, golfing, jogging, bodybuilding or any other number of physical activities. For children, limited mobility may leave them unable to experience their childhood to the fullest and it may prevent them from pursuing their dreams.

Sadly, many car wreck victims have had to come to terms with limited mobility after a crash, whether they are unable to walk or move certain parts of their body. Although there may be nothing a victim can to with respect to his or her mobility, there may be other options on the table. For example, someone struggling with this hardship may be able to gain access to benefits by taking a negligent driver to court.
