Injured in College – How to Recover Financially After a Car Accident

What happens when your injuries are severe, and you miss so much school that you drop out a semester or even have to push back your graduation date?

New York is a state with many college students – Cornell, NYU, University of Rochester, University of Buffalo, and Fordham University, to name a few.

A Tuition-paying student involved in a car accident faces unique challenges when they’ve suffered severe injuries. They may have trouble attending classes and studying for upcoming tests and risk lowering their GPA or losing the money they paid for school.

Apicella & Schlesinger Attorneys at Law has more than 45 years of experience helping car accident victims receive the compensation they need after being injured. It can be difficult, but we can help you return to your academic path.

Can’t Go Back to School

When car accident injuries are relatively minor, students may work with their teachers to figure out how to get the work done and take their exams. They can ask friends for notes and study hard to catch up. But what happens when your injuries are severe, and you miss so much school that you drop out a semester or even have to push back your graduation date?

When you’re involved in an auto accident that another driver causes, you are entitled to receive compensation for damages. This includes medical bills, lost wages, future medical costs, and pain and suffering. However, a court may not include compensation for missed classes or tuition.

How an Attorney Can Help

It’s common for students who are victims of car accidents not to hire an attorney. They often settle with the insurance company for much less than they could have received. However, the best way to maximize the amount of compensation you can recover from the insurance company is to hire a car accident lawyer. They will work with the insurance company, so you’re not fighting them alone. Your lawyer will ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

At Apicella & Schlesinger Attorneys at Law, we know how to deal with insurance companies and their lawyers. We know all the tricks and tactics they will try and use to avoid paying you the total amount. While we can’t get back the days of school you missed, we can help you recover the expense of lost tuition, medical bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and all other damages.
