Physical and Financial Scarring from an Auto Accident

Scars do not heal easily, and they may never heal completely. The physical scars of a Bucks County auto accident may fade in time, but you will likely always remember what you went through in the aftermath of that accident.  The same goes for the financial scarring that results after an accident. Given the costs associated with getting your life back to normal after an accident, you may find yourself reaching deep into your bank account in order to cover the costs. Bucks County personal injury lawyer Michael L. Saile, Jr. knows that both the physical scarring of personal injuries and the financial scarring may require a long recovery time after a Philadelphia area auto accident.


Damages to Body and Bank Account

Physical Scarring: Scars can result from many types of wounds, but those that result from a PA or NJ auto accident are particularly difficult to face. These scars may be a constant reminder of someone else’s mistake or of any guilt that you may feel. Scars often result from deep or more serious flesh wounds, as well as from burns that may be sustained in the midst of an accident. It may not be immediately clear if your injuries will lead to scarring, as scars most often develop after your injuries have healed. If physical scarring does develop, you may be entitled to compensation in your PA or NJ personal injury case. Ask for a recommendation from your family doctor for a plastic surgeon who is experienced in scarring from accident injuries, if only to get a professional opinion about how much the scar will fade (if at all) and/or if your scarring would benefit from surgery. 

Financial Scarring: There’s no denying it – Philadelphia area auto accidents are expensive. The costs build up faster than you may realize, and by the time you’ve paid for everything that you need to, you may feel financially scarred. This scarring may be difficult to overcome, especially if your auto accident injuries resulted in missed time at work for which you were not paid.
