How would your life be impacted by a motor vehicle accident?

Home / Blog / How would your life be impacted by a motor vehicle accident?

From a driver who is rear-ended at a stoplight to a bicyclist who is struck by an opening car door, injuries that result from traffic accidents can be serious and negatively impact an individual’s life in numerous, and often unforeseen, ways.

Imagine that you are walking to work from your subway stop one morning. You wait at the crosswalk as the traffic light turns red and walk sign illuminates. As you step off the curb to cross the street, a car speeds through the red light and runs over your foot.

Writhing in pain, you fall to the ground. Fellow pedestrians help you safely to the sidewalk and call 911. At the hospital, you learn that you have several broken bones in your foot and ankle and that you’ll likely need multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation to walk again.

Think about how an injury like this would impact your life. In addition to the thousands of dollars in medical bills, you’d also likely need to take some time off of work. Additionally, say you’re an avid runner or live on the fourth floor of a walk-up. How would you manage to navigate throughout the city and your daily life with this type of painful and debilitating injury?

Most people don’t take the time to think about the significant impact that being injured in a motor vehicle accident would have on their financial, professional, and personal life until the unthinkable happens.
