The day may have started out like any other. You woke up, got dressed and started your day as normal. However, things might have taken a terrible turn for the worse and now you face a new set of challenges. If you or a family member has sustained a head injury in a Culpeper car accident, you need to be aware of your rights and options.
It’s Just a Bump on the Head, Right?
First and foremost, if you were injured in any way in a crash, you need to get medical attention. Even a seemingly minor bump on the head could turn out to be a major injury. It is not worth the risk delaying treatment. If you were hurt, see a doctor. It really is that simple.
Your Rights & Options
If the auto accident was caused by the other driver’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. A head injury can take a long time to heal and you could be facing weeks, even months in recovery. Medical bills will quickly pile up, as you try to recoup. Medical expenses and lost wages are among the many damages you may be able to recover following a serious car accident.
