Even the most minor of Peoria car accidents can result in serious injuries and damages. Many accident victims take months or years to fully recover from the injuries they suffer. In some cases, they may experience permanent disabilities requiring a lifetime of treatment and care. In addition, accident victims can suffer emotionally, and experience mental anguish and emotional trauma for years after the physical wounds have healed. Treatment for these physical and mental conditions often costs thousands of dollars, but with many accident victims unable to work, families may find themselves struggling to make ends meet after an accident.
