The trauma of a car accident can significantly alter your life in many ways. If your car is totaled, you may lose the only transportation that you have to get to work and take care of your family. If you've been seriously injured, then you may have pain from those injuries that last for the rest of your life. And if your injury alters your ability to complete your job, or if you require ongoing rehabilitation, you may lose wages from lost time at work, which can have negative consequences that affect your whole family.
