When an auto accident leads to divorce

Auto accidents sometimes result in debilitating injuries and even the loss of life. However, some of the other consequences of a crash should not be overlooked, such as the potential strain that these accidents can bring to a relationship. After a wreck, a person's life may change in all sorts of ways, whether they become immobilized, experience financial issues due to being unable to work, or suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder or emotional challenges such as depression. Sadly, these can all create problems within a relationship as well.

Sometimes, a couple is simply unable to work through these difficulties together. With emotional hurdles, financial distress, and other hardships brought on by car accident injuries, such as not being able to carry out day-to-day responsibilities, these difficulties can directly or indirectly lead to a couple deciding to file for a divorce. If you are facing these matters, it is crucial to do everything possible to prevent the divorce from placing additional strain on your life, whether you were hurt in a car crash or your former spouse was injured in a motor vehicle collision.

From custody to the division of assets, additional stressors can arise in the middle of a divorce and you should prepare yourself for any legal matters you may need to work through. Divorce can be tough, especially for a car accident victim who may be facing other problems in their life, but you should focus on improving your circumstances.

Over on our law office's high-asset divorce page, more material related to filing for divorce is available.
