5 Consequences of Motor Vehicle Accidents

The obvious consequence of any motor vehicle accident is physical injury. Aside from attempting to recover from your injuries and struggling to pick up the pieces of your life in the aftermath, the following consequences could result:

   Emotional hardships – In addition to your pain and suffering, there’s the emotional and mental strain of not being able to participate in your favorite activities or perform your daily chores and tasks around the house.
   Financial setbacks  – Catastrophic accidents can be financially devastating. There are medical bills and vehicle repair or replacement costs to contend with. The stress from all of these can take a serious toll on you emotionally and financially.
   Inability to work – During your recover, you may not be able to work. Furthermore, if your employer doesn’t provide sick leave, this equates to lost income and makes things even worse from a financial perspective.
   Increased insurance premiums – Even if you’re not the at-fault party, your insurance company will probably raise your premium rate. Even if this is the only motor vehicle accident you’ve ever been involved in, it could mean a dramatic increase in your rates.
   No transportation  – If your insurer totals your vehicle or you are waiting on repairs, you won’t have any transportation. Even the most basic chores and tasks such as shopping or taking your children to school can be worrisome.
