- The cost of diagnosing your injuries

- The cost of treatment for your injuries
- The cost of any hospitalization required after your accident
- The cost of rehabilitation for your injuries
Medical expenses can be among the most expensive that you face, and injuries sustained in an accident may be similarly costly. Healthcare expenses may not be the extent of losses that come from your accident, as being injured in an accident may impose several secondary harms as well.
Additional losses from your accident may include:
- Interruptions in your sleep patterns

- Changes in your mood or personality
- Changes in your relationship

In either case, the loss of your normal income and ability to work could cause significant financial and psychological harm.

Multiple Parties Could Owe You Compensation in an Austin Car Accident
Determining who owes you compensation after an auto accident in Austin may be one of your lawyer’s many duties. A motorist who failed to secure items to their vehicle or to the inside of their vehicle may be one of multiple parties responsible for causing your accident. The specific circumstances of your collision will dictate liability for your losses.
Some of the parties who may be responsible for your losses are:
- The driver of a vehicle that inadequately fastened items to the frame of their vehicle
- The driver of a truck from which loose objects fell into the road
- The driver of a commercial truck whose cargo was not secured properly
- The driver of a vehicle that allowed loose objects to fall from inside the vehicle into the roadway
- The manufacturer of a device, such as a cargo strap, that failed to function as intended
Every instance of loose objects causing a collision is unique, and your lawyer will rely on witness accounts, evidence, and your own account to determine who is responsible for your losses.
