Accidents can happen anywhere, at any time, to anyone. When very serious accidents happen, people can sustain traumatic injuries as a result. These injuries can have a detrimental impact on a person physically, emotionally, and financially. If an individual finds themselves or a loved one in this situation, it is crucial to contact an experienced attorney to protect their rights.
Types of Traumatic Injuries
There are many different ways a traumatic injury can happen. They can be a result of motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, dangerous products, serious falls, and more. Common types of traumatic injuries that can stem from these accidents include:
- Brain Injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Neurological injuries
- PTSD and other psychological conditions
If a person sustains a brain injury during an accident, they are dealing with a very serious situation. These types of injuries can impact victims for the rest of their lives and cause future disabilities. Medical bills for brain injuries are often overwhelming and can cause significant financial burdens.
Brains are a tricky part of the anatomy. Sometimes, people can sustain an injury and not even realize for a long period of time. This is why it is crucial to receive medical treatment immediately after an accident.
Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is one of the most serious injuries an individual can sustain. This is because it is an important part of the central nervous system that allows a body to function. When an accident happens, the discs of the spine can often become bruised and damage the spinal cord. It is possible for this to cause a long-term or permanent disability. This can include quadriplegia and paraplegia, causing a person to lose function in parts of their body.
Proving an Injury Case
There are some cases in which a traumatic injury can be sustained due to negligence. When this happens, an experienced legal team can assist the injured party in a lawsuit to help relieve some of the burdens through financial compensation.
Regardless of how the individual was injured, the job of the injured party’s attorney is to do the following:
- Investigate how the injury occurred, who is at fault, and if liability must be pursued
- Determine what insurance coverage may compensate the victim
- Document and prove the injuries and how they affect their quality of life
- Document and prove all financial losses, medical bills, and future expenses
