As you undergo treatment and therapy for your injuries after a serious truck accident, your doctors will update you on your recovery process. Serious injuries such as broken bones, head trauma, and muscle or tissue damage can take weeks or months to heal, but some injuries last a lifetime.
A permanent injury such as a fractured spine, traumatic head injury, or other serious damage to your brain or spinal cord can cause permanent disability for the rest of your life. These disabling conditions often can leave victims unable to work, cheating them out of a lifetime of income.
This is an event that must be taken into consideration when negotiating your truck accident settlement. If you are unable to provide for yourself financially because of injuries you sustained due to another’s negligence, the settlement should cover the lifetime of lost income.
Make sure you have the help of a Georgia personal injury attorney to ensure you are getting the full value of your truck accident settlement.
