Injuries (Brain, Spine, Shoulder, Knee, Wrist, Ankle, Foot, Elbow)
Injuries can happen with any accident, from slipping on an icy sidewalk to being injured in a wreck. Any injury from an accident should be considered serious and treated with extremely focused care and attention. If you suffer any of these types of injuries, you should be aware of the options you have:
- Brain, such as concussions or major trauma
- Spinal Cord, which could lead to paralysis
- Wrist or Ankle, including sprains, fractures, and breaks
Any of these injuries could be caused by another person’s negligence. Whether it was a distracted driver or a careless neighbor, you should be compensated for any financial burden that has impacted your family because of the accident, including things such as any medical bills, lost wages from time off work recovering, emotional, psychological, or physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
If you or a loved one have been injured, first seek medical attention. Even if you feel that you haven’t been injured, the best action you can take is to confirm that with medical professionals. Sometimes injuries are internal, and you aren’t aware that they’re happening, or your body is in shock or running with adrenaline that you don’t feel your injuries at first. Any documentation, such as lab results, blood work, or even x-rays can be used for your defense in a court of law and help ensure success for your case.
