Loss of quality of life is ideally another form of damage as a result of car accident, including pain and suffering. It includes suffering and pain, anguish, inconvenience, discomfort, and emotional trauma which accompanies an injury. The person can’t enjoy the life he or she has before the accident.
Here are some reasons why car accidents and injuries can cause people to lose their quality of life:
They can’t participate in any family bonding
A father might get great pleasure from coaching his daughter’s baseball team or playing a game of catch with his son. A mother may also love to take her children to the park, throwing the frisbee around, pushing them on the swing, and see-sawing with them. If these activities cannot be pursued because of a personal injury, this creates a loss of quality of life.
Some hobbies cannot be pursued anymore
A photographer who has traveled the world to gather amazing photos of popular destinations might stop him or her from pursuing this hobby because of a serious injury. A similar loss of quality of life could be shown for scuba divers, skiers, avid hikers, joggers, spelunkers, rollerbladers, cyclists, and others who cannot pursue their passions anymore because of their personal injury.
Social life can deteriorate
Most individuals are happier when they are connected to other people socially. However, severe personal injuries can often restrict their ability to be as social as they were before the car accident happened.
Loss of quality of life due to accidents can result in physical and mental damages and limitations that affect a person’s ability to enjoy activities that once gave him or her the pleasure before the car crash happened. If people lose their quality of life from a car accident or injury, they deserve to receive payment for damages and compensation for injuries from those who are at fault.
