My doctor told me I have a permanent injury due to my auto accident. What does this mean?

A serious permanent injury is going to be with you for the rest of your life or for some period beyond the settlement of the claim. This means it is crucial for you to obtain an insurance settlement that truly meets your financial needs.

A seriously injured person may be entitled to payment from the at-fault party and his or her insurance company for past, present and future expenses, as well as pain and suffering. This includes compensation for future lost wages and loss of enjoyment of life. You need an attorney who is knowledgeable and on your side to accurately calculate what your future losses and expenses are likely to be.
