Automobile accidents happen in an instant, yet they can have life-changing effects. Beyond the immediate bodily injury and property damage, an auto accident can impact your current income if you are not able to work due to accident-related injuries. It can impact your future income if you are not able to return to work, or must accept limitations. If you need ongoing medical care, alterations to your home to accommodate your injury, physical therapy, medical equipment or health aides — all of these factors can be catastrophic consequences of an automobile accident. For more information, review Mr. Rivas’ accident litigation page.
If a loved one has been killed in an auto accident in Fresno, there almost certainly will be serious financial complications from the death.
