Expect the Unexpected
Daytona Beach Personal Injury Attorney
We have all heard the wise words before, “Expect the unexpected”, or some variation on the idea. “Beware the unseen” or “You never know what may happen” or perhaps the most interesting version “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. These are all good sayings, though they don’t really take hold until the unexpected, unseen, or worst happen. We go out on the town, get behind the wheel, and never expect that this could be the last drive we’ll be taking for a while. All it takes is about five seconds for an accident to happen. Most likely, it only took you five seconds to read that sentence. That isn’t a very long time at all, yet it can take months or even years to recover from it, and that is just physically speaking. The financial burden of it could take even longer.
Even a broken leg can throw a pretty heavy wrench in the gears. If you have a job that is physically demanding, you won’t be able to get back to work right away. You could try to get a less active job, but do you have the training and experience for it, and will it pay the same as the last job? How are you going to support yourself much less a family? The worst part of all of this is that it isn’t even any of your fault! Someone was texting and driving when they rammed into your vehicle, or driving intoxicated, or simply not paying attention to the road.
So, why should you have to suffer when you are not even responsible for it? The answer simply is that you shouldn’t have to suffer at all. When you are injured, you are due compensation for your injuries. These can include covering medical bills, income loss from an inability to work, and property damage. For some of this, insurance might cover the costs, though even then they may not cover all of it. If the injuries are severe enough, you might even become eligible for social security disability.
