Many serious injuries sustained in a truck accident result in the need for long-term therapy sessions. Physical therapy to regain mobility following fractures and soft tissue damage can take months before victims regain some normalcy in their ability to move and flex. Those who suffer head trauma may need mental therapy to recover their cognitive skills, or psychological therapy if they experienced emotional trauma.
Therapy is a medical expense that many victims do not take into account when considering the impact a truck accident will have on their future. Most of us focus on knowing when we can get back to work and any major medical needs such as surgery, forgetting about the need for therapy.
Your Georgia personal injury attorney will make sure you do not overlook any of these details when seeking a fair truck accident settlement. If you neglect to factor expenses such as therapy sessions on a long-term basis, you could find that you’ve agreed to a settlement that does not cover the full cost of treatment throughout its duration.
After accepting a truck accident settlement, you will typically sign an agreement that the arrangement is the final settlement of your claim. That signature prevents you from filing any additional claims for compensation against the negligent party – meaning if you don't get a full settlement now, you will be prevented from seeking another one in the future.
