After a car accident, working with an Odessa car accident lawyer is going to be imperative to keep your own life under control when so many things may go awry. Once someone experiences a car accident, expenses could pile up tremendously to a point of creating extreme personal stress. When you’re already dealing with major medical issues, the last thing you want is to deal with skyrocketing expenses and even lost wages due to the inability to work.
With these issues, your personal injury lawyer is going to act as a guardian to help you through everything on a legal level. Here at Childs Bishop & White P.C., we’ll use these expenses you have and lost wages to prove your case in a court of law when you seek compensation for your injuries.
What kind of expenses might you have that can prove compelling to a jury?
Medical Bills and Other Debts
One of the most crucial pieces of evidence we’ll seek out is definitive proof of your medical expenses. It’s important you keep every bill that comes in from your medical treatments so we can show a jury proof of how much you’ve had to pay out, regardless if you have health insurance. Considering many injuries from car accidents can mean months of treatments and perhaps even rehab, insurance won’t cover everything.
Chances are, your medical expenses are tremendous, and you may not be able to pay them as a result of not being able to work due to your injuries.
Another key aspect of your evidence you may not immediately consider is also showing evidence of your car repair bills. Most likely, you car had extensive damage in your accident, if not even totaled. It’s far from cheap to have any extensive work done on a car, let alone completely refurbished. These bills could almost equal your medical expenses, and we’ll present them as just one part of your money losses.
Proving Lost Wages
Losing your job due to injuries can be a very compelling angle in your car accident case. A jury may find a lot of sympathy in this case, especially when proof is shown of your inability to work due to your physical injuries. And when it’s proven the person who caused your accident was extremely negligent, compensation could be in the cards to help you be able to pay your expenses.
We can prove this not only from public records, but also private records, including your financial information to show just how much you’re hurting financially.
