If you’ve been struck by a car or injured in a drunk driving  motor vehicle accident, you may be able to recover for your injuries. Medical bills from accidents can easily exceed $10,000 and may even reach hundreds of thousands of dollars depending on the extent of the injuries and treatment required. Sometimes, people may suffer lost wages if they are forced to stay out of work due to an injury and in some cases people may be unable to return to their previous occupation, which may result in serious economic damages and financial harm. In certain cases, if someone has sustained injuries and cannot return to their trade or occupation, the use of an economist may be required to assist in evaluating the scope of any lost future earnings, which can be substantial.
