“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
At the beginning of this blog post series, we learned that Nebraska’s 2014 car accident death toll was the highest number on record in nearly a decade, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This fact puts your legal, physical and emotional challenges into perspective, in that you are truly lucky to have survived. This is not to dismiss the very serious trials of those involved in non-fatal automobile accidents. On the contrary, our firm strives to ensure significant compensation for car accident victims who have suffered—in any way—through no fault of their own.
Section One outlined the actions you should take from the moment after the accident to exactly one week later. The text emphasized prioritizing your health and safety by first calling 911, moving the vehicle off the road and waiting to be seen by a medical professional. Next, we discussed effective strategies for gathering evidence, including evaluating fault, proactively approaching your treatment and working effectively with a Nebraska auto accident attorney.
In Section Two, we discussed the long-term consequences of the crash. Although most of the work takes place in the first week, the weeks thereafter also require a lot of cutting through red tape and recovery. This section emphasized the importance of standing your ground against predatory insurance companies, understanding the various categories of legal damage, and the complications of soft tissue injuries. Overall, this portion dealt with recovery in its many forms: legal, physical, and financial.
Finally, Section Three focused on restoring and reviving your life after the accident. We discussed getting organized after an accident through to-do lists and calendar-based scheduling. Next, we went over the importance of maintaining your physical and mental health through proper diet, exercise, and meditation. Following this, we learned how to manage your finances and build your network to ensure continual support throughout the recovery process.
