The Financial Side Of Car Accidents

Car crash
Nobody likes the sense of chaos that takes over your life once you’ve been in a car crash. Imagine that you were driving peacefully on the road when suddenly, out of nowhere, a car appeared to the right and ran directly into your side. Despite your best efforts, you couldn’t avoid it. More importantly, you now sit in your car, seconds after the accident, feeling lost and confused. While you know that you should get in touch with your car insurance, and get the details of the other driver – that is, assuming that you can get out of the car, if you can’t then you will need to call an ambulance – but do you know what else happens after a car accident? Here is a little countdown of the financial implications of an accident, when it wasn’t your fault.

 You Might Lose Your Income

A car accident can have dramatic consequences. You can be seriously injured. An injury is likely to cause you to stay away from work during the recovery time. In some cases, you may not work again. In other words, an injury can lead to a loss of income. While this is something that can be addressed directly by a car insurance settlement, you will find that auto accident lawyers are more likely to help you to receive a sustainable compensation in such situations. More lawyers are also very understanding of your situation and are happy to visit you at home or hospital if you are indisposed. They understand how difficult and stressful things are for you and make sure that you receive the best possible compensation.

You Might Have Medical Bills


A car crash can cause a variety of serious injuries, and some of these may not even show. Most people have a tendency to suffer from shock after a road accident, which can make it difficult to identify possible injuries. Additionally, even if the injury has been identified, it is likely that you will have to pay for treatment before any settlement from the car insurance or your lawyer can be made. In the case of a personal injury, the treatments can be quite costly at first. In other words, you may find yourself generating debts as the result of a car crash.
You Might Need To Adjust Your Lifestyle
Depending on the gravity of the accident, you might need to adjust your lifestyle to cope with a new situation, such as the loss of a limb or chronic pain. Consequently, you might also need to plan home improvement works to ensure that your home is adjusted to your new needs. Imagine having to spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair. How can you change your house design to fit the chair? And how much will it cost?

You Might Need Help Coping Emotionally

A car accident is a traumatic event. While you may not realize it at first, you might develop a form of psychological disorde as the result of your crash. For some individuals, this can appear as anxiety attacks. Others will find that they are too nervous to sleep or that they have constant nightmares about the accident. Some people develop a high fear of losing control and find it extremely stressful to leave the house. In short, a car accident has emotional consequences that you will need to deal with. Often therapy is the best solution to make peace with your car again.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
