It can be difficult when the roles are reversed. Your parent always took care of you, and now it is clear that you will need to take care of your parent. If your parent was hurt by another driver, then it is important to know what you can do to protect your parent during her recovery.
It may be difficult for your parent to rely on you. Your mother or father may not want to be a burden to you. However, it is important to see that your parent gets the help she needs. This includes medical care and legal assistance. Once your parent is seen in the emergency room or by her primary care doctor, it is important to make sure that your parent is following up with the medical recommendations.
Additionally, it is important to encourage your parent to contact a Fauquier County car accident lawyer to learn more about her rights. Even if your parent was no longer earning an income, she may benefit from filing a lawsuit or negotiating a settlement to compensate her for:
- Past and future medical expenses and rehabilitation costs.
- Out-of-pocket costs, such as travel expenses and house cleaning, that were not required prior to the accident.
- Other damages.
Your parent has nothing to lose by calling an experienced Fauquier County car accident attorney today at 540-341-007 or 888-907-2631 for a free consultation about her legal rights and possible recovery.
