Recovering with the Help of an Orange County Car Accident Attorney

When you’re the victim of a car accident caused by a negligent driver, it is normal to want to be taken care of. Whether the other driver was disregarding the laws of the road, texting and driving, or under the influence, a seasoned Orange County car accident attorney can hold them accountable for their negligence and obtain the compensation you deserve for your injuries and suffering. 

Experienced car accident lawyers like the Cohn & Swartzon team understand the complexities of the law and can guide you through each step of this process while offering the emotional support you need. 

Why You Need Orange County Car Accident Attorney

The road to recovery after you have been in a car accident is long. From the psychological trauma, the pain from injuries, and even t the claims process to possible litigation, it’s extremely difficult to secure the compensation you’re entitled to without the expertise of an Orange County car accident attorney. Let’s take a look at what this process looks like. 

Psychological Trauma, Anxiety, and Stress 

After a traumatic event like a car accident, it is normal for victims to develop conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  

These effects can linger for years after an accident and cause trouble in all areas of your life. Long-term effects can include mood shifts and emotional instability that negatively impacts your personal relationships.

When you work with a compassionate Orange County car accident attorney, however, you will receive support in and out of the courtroom to navigate recovery, and you’ll have the best chance of maximizing the compensation you need to treat the physical injuries as well as the mental trauma you’re suffering through. 

“When you have been in a car accident, you are not the only one who is dealing with the emotional and psychological fallout of your injuries. The people in your life are also affected, and it’s always important to consider that on your road to recovery and while working with your attorney.”

– Oz Tannenbaum, Partner, Cohn & Swartzon

Medical Expenses, Rehabilitation Costs, and Other Costs

Medical bills start piling up quickly after an accident. In the wake of such a traumatic event, this only compounds the feelings of stress, depression, and anxiety you are living with. The medical costs, rehabilitation and physical therapy bills, and lost income can be a huge burden on you and your family’s finances. 

Further, the other party or their insurance may attempt to hold you responsible for damages even if you were not. Some victims are also forced to navigate co-pays, reimbursements and expenses outside of their approved coverage. 

If you don’t have insurance, this could be financially devastating, and if you don’t have the funds for counseling or care, the trauma will only intensify. But you do not have to shoulder this burden alone when you hire an Orange County car accident attorney.  

The Road to Recovery

Your road back to a normal life isn’t easy after suffering a serious car accident, but there is a path to return to normalcy and restore your previous quality of life.

Physical and psychological injuries take time to heal, and rushing into physical activity before receiving the medical clearance to do so could worsen your injuries. Additionally, therapy could be necessary to resolve the anxiety and psychological issues you endure. 

Also, as hard as it can be to accept, you may have to make permanent life changes. 

On this road to recovery, working with a car accident lawyer is crucial because they will remind you that while the physical and psychological consequences of this accident may linger, you don’t have to let them dominate your life, and you can put this behind you. 

Your Compensation Claim

Another component of recovery is working with your Orange County car accident attorney to present an accurate and thorough compensation claim. Your attorney will work to prove negligence and investigate the accident to identify who should be held accountable. 

The claims process is complicated, time-intensive, and labor-intensive, and may require intense negotiations or even a court hearing. This is why your personal injury lawyer should handle your claim – so that you can stay focused on what matters most, which is recovering and reestablishing your quality of life. 

That said, there are some actionable steps that your or a loved one can take to help your attorney obtain the compensation you deserve:

  • Collect medical records documenting the accident and asking your doctor to explicitly state that your injuries were a result of this accident in the report.
  • Take photos and videos of the accident and all injuries.
  • Keep a record of all expenses, such as medical bills, loss of income due to your injury, car repair costs, and other related costs.
  • File an accident report with law enforcement. 
  • eep a record of all communications with insurance companies and other parties relating to the accident. 

How an Orange County Car Accident Attorney Can Help

When you are recovering from the injuries, pain, and suffering of a car accident, filing a claim and pursuing the negligent parties through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation is nearly impossible without the support and guidance of an experienced Orange County car accident attorney. 

Attempting to handle this on your own will be a costly detour from your road to recovery. But the attorneys at Cohn & Swartzon will tirelessly pursue the compensation you deserve so you can return to your normal life, or get as close to restoring your pre-accident state as possible. We treat every client with respect and offer support in the courtroom and emotional support outside of it.
