When a person is involved in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, he or she could sustain any number of serious injuries. These injuries can have long-lasting implications for victims, and some examples include, but are not limited to:
- Brain Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Disfigurement and Scarring
- Electrical Burns
- Emotional Distress
- Knee Injury
- Loss of Consortium
- Repetitive Trauma
- Shoulder Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Broken Bones
When an accident victim suffers one of these serious injuries, he or she will typically incur a significant amount of medical expenses. Additionally, many of these injuries also require several months or possibly years of physical rehabilitation. Victims could be unable to return to their regular jobs, and some people may not be capable of working ever again.
Any injury that results in dismemberment, disfigurement, or limited use or loss of use of a body organ or member function can be considered serious. There are several instances when these types of injuries can be the result of another party’s negligence. For example, another person may have been driving under the influence (DUI), a property owner may have neglected to eliminate a dangerous condition in a public place, or an employer could have failed to properly maintain work equipment.
If you sustained serious injuries or your loved one died because of the negligence of another party, that individual or business could be liable to you for the losses you suffered. You might be able to file a lawsuit to recover financial damages, but the other party will often have an insurance company looking to minimize any payment to you. This may involve lawyers who argue that your won negligence caused or contributed to your injuries, or insurance adjusters attempting to gain statements that show your injuries are not particularly serious or that your medical history indicates the injuries were pre-existing.
