After being hit by a drunk driver in Georgia, you may be injured. Although you may be focusing your attention on your injury and rehabilitation, you can’t help but wonder how much money this is going to cost you.
Financial stresses for Georgia DUI victims are very real, and you deserve to be compensated for your injuries, medical bills, lost income and more. If you are wondering what type of financial stresses those in your situation have faced, our Atlanta DUI injury attorneys can give you some examples.
Some financial worries for which other victims of drunk driving accidents have been compensated include:
- Home repairs to accommodate their injuries. For example, if a wheelchair is required due to the injury suffered, then home renovations may be needed to widen doorways or lower the sink and counters, along with other repairs.
- In-home care and services. If a victim cannot cook, clean, or take care of himself anymore, then he may receive compensation for in-home care. This could include compensation for a cleaning service and other areas of care.
- Future medical expenses. Sometimes injuries can last longer than what is expected. No two people have the exact same injury or will heal the same way in the same length of time. This is why requesting compensation for future medical bills, medications, and therapies is critical.
If you are a Georgia DUI victim, do not try to deal with the insurance company alone. You have enough to do by focusing on your injury and healing. Let trusted lawyers help you get compensation to make your financial stresses go away.
