It can take months or years to recover from injuries sustained in a broadside accident; some are faced with a permanent disability or die as a result of their injuries. Many of these accident victims end up with huge medical bills, extended pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost wages while they recover. Lost earning capacity applies in cases that result in disability or loss of life. If you or a loved one was injured in a broadside collision because of the negligence of another driver, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. Call a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to discuss your legal rights.
