- Head and brain injuries
- Neck and spine injuries
- Broken and shattered bones
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Psychological injuries such as PTSD, anxiety, and depression
Many of these injuries can result in permanent damage and chronic pain and require lifelong treatment and care. That’s why it’s so important to protect yourself by following the rules of the road, wearing your seat belt, and carrying enough auto insurance if an accident occurs.
Protect Yourself Before An Accident Happens
Although most drivers on the road carry liability insurance, they are often underinsured. It may seem appealing to go for the lowest premium possible when purchasing insurance, but it is vital to make sure you have adequate uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage on your policy. The additional cost is minimal and is well worth it. Often, when someone is injured by a negligent driver, they are underinsured, which means that their policy will barely cover your medical expenses, let alone other damages. As Joe Stanley says, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Be smart with your insurance, because you never know what’s just around the corner.” Our car accident attorneys also recommend equipping your vehicle with a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, and warning light, hazard triangle, or two flares.
