The aftermath of a car accident can be mild to severe and deadly. When compared to other developed countries the United States has some of the highest rates of car accidents reported every year. In the third quarter of 2021, there were an estimated 284 million vehicles of various types and sizes driving on the roads throughout the United States. This excessive amount of road traffic is one of the reasons why there are so many vehicular accidents taking place in the country. In 2019 alone, there were over 12 million crashes.
In 2019 the state of Mississippi was home to 2,976,149 residents. There were 581 fatal crashes that year which lead to 643 deaths according to the data by the Insurance Insitute for Highway Safety. If you were injured in a Mississippi car accident or if you lost a loved one in one of these tragic events, you may be able to take legal action to recover your financial losses. Filing a Mississippi personal injury claim or a Mississippi wrongful death claim may be beneficial for your situation. To learn more about how the claims process works and to have your case examined, you can meet with the Jackson wrongful death attorney at The Germany Law Firm, PLLC.
What is the Timeframe for Healing After a Car Accident?
There are several factors that go into how fast or slow a person heals when they suffered physical bodily harm. The length of time it will take you to recover after a car accident depends on how severe your injuries are, what type of physical harm you suffered, your health, and your age. There is no steadfast and or hardened rule when it comes to healing. Even if two people have the same injuries, the rate at which they heal can differ.
Consider a broken leg. It can take six months or more to have a full recovery. A severe traumatic brain injury can take years before a person feels the same way they did before their accident if they are even able to get to that point. It is possible to never have a total and complete recovery from a TBI that restores optimal health. A TBI can also cause complications for victims that may deteriorate their health and in some cases, death can result.
So, in terms of how long it will take you to heal from your car accident, there are many elements that will influence that timeline. It is important, though, that after an accident you seek medical treatment immediately. Waiting on getting treatment can make your condition worse or cause other ailments to develop. Seeing a medical provider to be properly diagnosed and treated after your crash improves your chances of recovering to the fullest extent possible and in the quickest amount of time.
