On-the-job car accidents may lead to lengthy recovery periods

A collision can take place at any moment, and the fallout of a crash could leave a person facing a seemingly insurmountable financial hurdle. On-the-job car accidents could prompt prolonged recovery periods that may leave a person facing the possibility of missing out on wages for months, or even years. A police officer in Georgia has recently returned to work after being off for more than a year after he was struck and injured by a drunk driver while on duty.

According to reports, the officer was out on patrol when the incident took place. A drunk driver reportedly lost control and struck his vehicle, causing him to suffer major injuries. He reportedly had to undergo numerous surgeries and months of physical therapy following the crash, and it took more than a year for him to become capable of returning to his job.

The idea of going a year without wages can be a harrowing concept, especially when combined with the likelihood of facing extensive medical bills. While the physical pain one suffers may heal with time, the financial strain of such an incident could have a lingering impact on his or her life. Those who suffer injuries under similar circumstances may be eligible to receive benefits through workers' compensation, but they might be uncertain where to turn for assistance in the process.

On-the-job car accidents can have disastrous results that may leave a person facing a variety of hardships, physical and financial alike. Those who wish to know more about their options for pursuing financial aid following such an incident could benefit from consulting with an attorney as soon as possible. An attorney in Georgia can help a client better understand the available options and assist him or her in seeking the full amount of compensation achievable.
