The true cost of a parent's serious car accident

A car accident has many costs, and when it comes to a parent suffering an injury, it's not just the parent who suffers. If the parent is the sole provider, then the family has no income, so lost wages become a concern. If the parent was a stay-at-home mom or dad, then childcare may now become necessary and an added expense. Add to that the cost of medical debt and transportation to and from therapy and appointments, and you see why a car accident injury results in many different costs.
