Types of Injuries
There are a variety of injuries a person may sustain in a personal injury case. In addition to the extensive medical treatment that these injuries require, most victims also require counseling to learn to cope with the permanent damage they have suffered. Some of the most common injuries we see include:
A burn injury can range from mild to severe. Moderate to severe cases typically include burns that are second or third degree. These burns often cover large areas of the body and will require multiple surgeries, skin grafts, and physical therapy to recover. Even with skin grafts and plastic surgery, severe burns are likely to result in significant scarring. This can have a negative impact on your confidence, self-image, and, ultimately, your quality of life.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Mild spinal cord injuries may result in muscle weakness, and strength can often be regained through extensive physical therapy. In more severe cases, however, a spinal cord injury can result in partial or total paralysis. Paralysis may include just the lower portion of the body, known as paraplegia, or it may include everything below the neck, known as quadriplegia. In either case, a spinal cord injury will likely require multiple surgeries, extended hospital stays, and physical therapy. If paralyzed, you will need either a standard or motorized wheel chair. Most people have to make modifications to their homes and vehicles, and some victims may also require long-term care.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
No two brain injuries are alike, so they can be difficult to accurately diagnose. In some cases, symptoms may not appear for days or even several weeks, making diagnosis that much more difficult. Symptoms to look for in potential brain injury victims include:
- Changes in mood, behaviors, and sleep patterns
- Frequent nausea or vomiting
- Problems with coordination, walking or speaking
- Drainage from the nose or ears
A TBI can cause permanent damage, including lasting changes in personality, motor skills, and more.
When the negligence or misconduct of another party results in fatal injury, we will ensure that party is held responsible. We will also seek compensation for outstanding medical bills associated with the injury, in addition to loss of income for your family, and compensation for funeral expenses. Some common accidents that result in wrongful death may include motor vehicle accidents, defective products, slip and fall accidents, and workplace accidents.
