Two Lives Lost in DUI Wreck Near Rincon

Charges are pending against one suspected drunk driver and charges have already been filed against a second suspected drunk driver in connection with a tragic accident that claimed the life of a pregnant mother and her unborn child according to WTOC.com. The woman's husband survived the crash, as did two of their sons who were in the car when the wreck occurred and their two other sons, who were not involved in the accident.

After a Tragic Accident, Survivors May Face a Lengthy Road to Recovery

The aforementioned accident took the life of a mother and an unborn child. The woman's husband survived the crash, as did the couple's four other children. All of them were hurt in the wreck, in addition to experiencing the trauma of losing their beloved mother and wife. Whenever there is an automobile accident, and accident victims suffer physical and emotional harm, they must get medical attention right away so that they may begin to recover from the physical injuries and the trauma that they experienced.

Recovering from the physical and emotional impact of a car accident, even if your physical injuries are not severe or life-threatening, is a process. If you have multiple physical injuries, or if someone who was in the accident with you died and you experienced intense trauma, your healing process may be lengthy and complicated. When you received medical care after your accident, your doctors probably talked to you about what your recovery process would look like, and they may also have estimated how long they felt that it would take.

Some, but not all, accident victims go on to make a full recovery from all of their injuries. This is the goal of treatment whenever possible. The time frame within which they are expected to recover fully can vary, depending upon the type of injuries and the health of the injured person. If you are unlikely to recover fully, your doctor probably talked with ou about how much of a recovery you are likely to make, and how long it is likely to take you to achieve the state of health that is called maximum medical improvement (MMI).

The concept of MMI is as essential to your financial recovery after an accident as it is to your physical rehabilitation. Achieving MMI is an important milestone in your automobile accident injury case because once you have reached MMI, your attorney can accurately calculate the full extent of your past damages from the crash as well as any expected future costs associated with the predicted costs of anticipated future treatments.
