If your injuries in an auto accident were caused by someone else’s negligence, you can pursue a personal injury claim for compensation for your damages. A personal injury claim can help you get your personal injury claim on the right track.
Numbness or Loss of Feelings Will Have Lasting Effects
Numbness or loss of feelings in your body can cause you to suffer significantly in your daily activities. You might not be able to grasp or lift things or do activities that you had regularly participated in become impossible to do.
When it comes to working, you might not be able to do the same job, or you might not be able to work at all. You will have mounting medical bills and lost wages as well as emotional and mental trauma, pain and suffering and other damages. When you cannot sense feeling or if there is numbness, you could injure yourself, worsening the wound and not realize it right away.
As an example, if you have numbness in your hands, you could suffer serious burns and not even realize it until you looked at your hands. Because of this, you might not be able to do some things you had done in the past.
Determining The Other Driver’s Liability for the Crash That Caused Numbness or Loss of Feelings
If you suffered serious injuries, such as numbness or loss of feelings because of a car crash caused by someone else, you need to show that the other driver was at fault, so you can recover compensation for your damages. For a successful personal injury claim, you need to show negligence. When you can prove another driver acted negligently or carelessly, you can have a successful personal injury claim.
There are four elements of negligence – duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages. If your case can prove all those things, then you can be compensated for all your losses. Common damages claimed in an auto accident include medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, future loss of earnings, pain and suffering, mental anguish, property damages, permanent scarring and disfigurement, and disabilities.
