Head and traumatic brain injuries
From seemingly minor concussions to long-lasting traumatic injuries, any blow to the head can cause serious problems. Victims of traumatic brain injuries may require surgeries, rehabilitative therapy, counseling (both individual and family), assisted-living care, and other expensive treatments. Some may never recover fully from their accidents.
Back, neck, and spinal cord injuries
For many people, there’s no true recovery from an injury to the back or neck. The spine supports the body and is involved in virtually all movement. An injury to the spinal cord can result in partial or complete paralysis. Bulging or herniated discs can cause serious pain and require expensive treatments.
Broken and fractured bones
Catastrophic car accidents, falls, and other serious accidents often leave victims with broken bones. Unfortunately, the fix isn’t always as simple as a cast and some rest. Some people will require surgery (or multiple surgeries) to repair breaks, and rehabilitative therapy is often necessary. Victims typically must take time off work to heal, and some may experience complications.
Accidents that leave a person with serious burns are some of the most traumatic. In addition to the unbearable pain, burn victims often suffer scarring and disfigurement that serve as a reminder of their accident for the rest of their lives.
Internal injuries and organ damage
It is important to always seek medical care after an accident because there are so many injuries that are not immediately obvious. Internal bleeding, punctured lungs, ruptured spleens, and other organ damage can be extremely serious.
Some injuries prove to be fatal. When someone negligently causes a death, the law calls it a “wrongful death.” Surviving family members have a right to seek compensation for the loss. Give our Indian Land personal injury lawyers a call today to learn more.
