accident compensation lawyerInjuries from an accident can scar you for life. An accident that may not be fatal can cause a physical disability. Disfigurement from an accident can follow you for many years causing depression, thus by affecting all aspects of your personal life. In some cases a physical injury has a pronounced effect on your personal as well as your professional relationships. The emotional weight is difficult to measure. People whose mind is affected by the way they perceive themselves tend to alienate themselves and others. Emotional distress can have a long lasting effect.

A person who loses a limb, get disfigured or ends up with a handicap they never experienced before in their life must have a period of adjustment that most likely includes frustration and personal pain. People who wear the scars of an accident have to readjust to life. They must learn to accept themselves as they are instead of falling in depression or self loading because of circumstances far out of their control. These people may have to receive therapy that may include psychotherapy. The healing process can take an insurmountable time; it will depend on the person’s ability to cope and the depth of their trauma. The longer the therapy the higher the costs, no one can guess how much it can amount. Many people may give up their treatments to spare their families from a financial burden at the expense of their own sanity. This is why use an accident compensation lawyer. The right lawyer can fight for the victim to receive the compensation required to live life comfortably as well as receiving the necessary treatments at the same time.

Emotional distress due to the consequences of an accident can also cost marital stress and social alienation. People who have survived a traumatic accident often have problems readjusting at home as well especially if the person has become more dependent of the family and friends around them for the day to day functioning. Having to use a wheel chair, depending on someone else for bathing, cleaning eating or anything else may place a strain on the people around the injured. Emotional distress can also result in the injured person’s behavior to become erratic, even mean, as a result pushing people away. The symptoms of depression are emptiness, hopelessness, and outbursts of anger, irritability, frustration and loss interest in normal activities which include socializing and even intercourse which can create additional tension on a marriage. A person who is easily irritated is also difficult to handle. Even when the people around you know you are not fine, they don’t really fully understand what you are feeling unless they have experienced it. This means that not only the person who is injured should get therapy but the people closest to the injured party must also receive counseling. This can greatly help keeping a stable household until the persons healed. If the injury is so substantial that the person becomes disabled, counseling the family can assist the family to reach that balance that so desperately needs.

Why use an accident compensation Lawyer? Because you need all the help you can get to save yourself from financial distress after suffering a life changing event such as a major accident.

If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident and your were you a passenger driven by a drunk driver you may still have a personal injury claim? Did you know as a passenger that your driver consumed alcohol? Do you have a motor vehicle personal injury claim?

Even if you as a passenger knew your driver had consumed alcohol you may still have a personal injury motor vehicle claim if you can show that by your observation your driver did not appear to be drunk.

In a recent decision in a personal motor vehicle accident claim for motor vehicle passenger claim in the District Court. The passenger claimant, who sustained a personal injury, did not know the defendant driver was drunk nor did the passenger note that the driver was visibly affected by alcohol, nor did the defendant exhibit any physical signs of intoxication though she had been seen by the claimant to consume alcohol.

The passenger claimant had taken a walk with the defendant before being involved in a motor vehicle accident. The defendant while under close observation did not display any signs of intoxication nor did she alert the claimant to the fact that she was drunk during their walk home and at the defendant’s home, while cooking. The passenger drove to the restaurant and waited in line and there were no signs of intoxication.

When the passenger was injured in a ride home in a vehicle and had a motor vehicle personal injury claim, the court was not satisfied that the plaintiff acted unreasonably for her own safety or had acted negligently in accepting the ride with the defendant, and in particular in riding with the defendant back from the restaurant.

Motor Vehicle Passenger Claim

If your driver while under your observation does not appear to display any overt signs of being drunk you may be able to establish a motor vehicle passenger claim that you held a reasonable belief that the driver was not affected by liquor and you are in this case not negligent.
