A motor vehicle accident—whether it is with a car, motorcycle, semi-truck, or pedestrian—can be a life changing event. It can be scary and confusing, and it leaves many people with the worry that they will never feel comfortable driving or operating a vehicle ever again. Unfortunately, in our culture, especially in an area like St. Louis, Missouri, it is not very realistic to think that you will be able to avoid driving for the rest of your life.
The road to recovery can be very tough, especially if you have been through a traumatic accident that has affected you both mentally and physically. However, many people have been through the same type of ordeal as you, so it is important never to feel as if you are alone. An accident, especially if it was not your fault, can leave you with a feeling of mistrust toward other drivers. However, it is important to understand that the road should not be considered a scary place, as everyone wants to get to where they are going as safely as possible.
Getting behind the wheel can be tough after this type of ordeal, and sometimes you need more than just the support of others to overcome this discomfort or fear. In the St. Louis area, as well as other areas, there are psychologists and therapists who can work with you in order to overcome this fear and anxiety. Do not be afraid to reach out for help in this time of need.
If you are still suffering financially from the accident due to medical bills, time off work, pain and suffering, and/or therapy costs, a personal injury attorney can help you to determine if you should pursue financial compensation for these losses. Working with an experienced attorney like the ones at Finney Law Office, LLC can help you to move forward. Your focus should be on healing while our focus is on the legal side of things.
