You were driving home from work when you received the call that you never wanted: Your spouse had been involved in a motorcycle accident and was being rushed into surgery at the local hospital. You knew that things were bad if they hadn’t even waited for you to get there to begin, so you drove there quickly.
By the time you arrived, your spouse was in the operating room going through a potentially life-saving surgery. They had been hurt badly, broken multiple bones and had organ damage. All you could do was hope that they’d live through it.
Fortunately, they did survive, and they are on the mend. Not as luckily, they now have serious injuries that need time to heal. You’re not sure how you’ll make ends meet until that happens since you only work part-time and rely on your spouse’s income.
After a serious injury, it’s possible to seek compensation from responsible parties
After a crash like this, it’s obvious that your spouse is going to need ongoing medical care and financial support. That’s why it’s a good idea to start collecting information about the incident. You need to give this documentation to your attorney, so they can begin putting together a strong personal injury claim.
Your spouse may have hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical expenses and financial losses from this collision, but you shouldn’t have to worry about paying that back. Your attorney will work hard to seek compensation from the person who caused the motorcycle accident so that you and your spouse can rest easy knowing that the financial support you need is there for you throughout this recovery period.
