Why Car Accidents Are So Expensive

Between auto insurance claims, repairing car damage and medical care, car accidents can be very frustrating and expensive for the parties involved. In fact, crash-related deaths resulted in $44 billion in medical and work loss costs in just one year. But what is it that makes car accidents so expensive?

  • Insurance premiums often spike. One of the biggest concerns that people have in a car accident is how much their insurance premium will increase after making a claim.
  • You need to repair your car. Even a minor fender bender means car repairs. Ideally, your insurance company or the insurance company of the party at-fault will cover the costs of repairing your car. However, you may need to pay out a deductible for your repairs initially to get your car back out on the road.
  • You’ll need a new way to get around. You still need to get to and from work or school even while your car is in the shop. Some insurances companies cover the cost of your car rental!
  • Accidents often result in doctor visits. If your accident was more serious, you may need to go to the emergency room and follow up doctor visits. It’s important that you get the medical care that you need to get better. However, we know that medical bills can be very pricey. On the bright side, your insurance policy may be able to reimburse your for out-of-pocket expenses.
