Financial Losses After an Injury

One of the most significant areas of your life that will be affected by your recent personal injury is your ability to provide financial support for your family. Before you were injured, you may have been able to provide for all your family’s financial needs through full-time employment. But now, you haven’t been back to work for weeks on end, and this causes you much concern; bills don’t stop accumulating just because you are not working.
Perhaps you are like many injury victims who don’t have significant savings to meet their day-to-day living expenses now, much less those bills that are coming due in the future. Many injury victims become depressed and discouraged because they cannot provide the same financial support for their family as they could previously. Perhaps you are feeling like that, too, and you fear that you won’t be able to return to the employment you held previous to becoming injured.
Many catastrophically and seriously injured people can’t return to the same kind of employment they had previously; they have to change jobs, and even occupations, in order to return to any gainful employment. As a result, you now face, perhaps for the first time in your adult life, real uncertainty about your future employment and financial condition.
