What are the costs of a crash?

Nebraskan residents like you understand that car crashes can be harmful on more than just a physical level. Financially, they can also be devastating. McHenry Haszard Law takes a look at all of the hardest-hitting expenses that you may face after a crash.

The first expenses are the short-term ones. These will usually be things like car repairs and hospital bills. Depending on the severity of the crash, initial costs can be quite high. Even a ride in an ambulance can put a person back hugely. Add in complications like surgery or even having your car totaled and you’re easily looking at tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

However, it’s the long-term expenses that tend to really add up over time. These expenses can come in the form of multiple surgeries, physical therapy, or trauma therapy. If you suffered from brain or spinal cord damage, you may be looking at months or years of intensive recovering. You could have expensive prescriptions and repeated admissions to the hospital. You may need in-home care. You may even lose your ability to work either entirely or have it severely hampered, leading to a halt on your income. All of these factors together can be hard.
