Motor vehicle wrecks disrupt victims’ lives in a lot of ways, creating financial hardships, emotional challenges, physical pain, immobility and an inability to continue working. However, these accidents affect victims in other ways. For example, all of the aforementioned hardships often place strain on the health of one’s personal relationships, from friendships and interactions with relatives to one’s marriage or dating life.
It is important for auto accident victims to minimize the toll of a traffic wreck. However, our law office realizes this is very hard for many victims, such as those who sustain serious injuries or face significant financial hurdles.
When a long-term relationship crumbles
Sometimes, these accidents cause long-term relationships to crumble. Some marriages and partnerships are unable to survive the various challenges that arise following a crash, from financial uncertainty to depression and immobility. Some partners are supportive in the days and weeks after a wreck, but become tired of taking care of their partner. Moreover, some people suffer changes to their personality due to a crash, especially those who sustain head trauma in an accident. Victims who struggle with emotional outbursts, anger, severe memory problems and other hardships as a result of brain trauma are especially likely to find themselves in this position.
