What Causes Serious Injuries?
Most serious injuries are caused by accidents, many of which result from negligence. If a doctor prescribes you the wrong medication, for example, their negligence could cause you harm, leading to a serious injury. Other common accidents that could lead to a serious injury include:
- Automobile accidents, such as car, truck, bus, motorcycle, pedestrian, and bicycle accidents
- Medical malpractice or negligence
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Slips and falls
- Animal attacks and dog bites
- Work-related accidents
- Harassment, abuse, or assault
Types of Serious Injuries
Accidents can have physical, emotional, and psychological impacts on your body, all of which could translate to a catastrophic injury. As mentioned, a serious injury is one that causes significant pain, disfigurement, or disability. Some of the injuries that can be classified as such, include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Partial or total paralysis
Traumatic brain injuries are usually caused by significant force trauma to the brain and can cause mild, moderate, or severe symptoms in the victim. Accidents that typically result in TBIs include slips and falls, auto accidents, and construction accidents. Common symptoms of a TBI include weakness, numbness, seizures, headaches, nausea, and changes in sleep patterns, however, symptoms can vary in severity.
Compensation for Serious Injuries
Compensation for serious injuries is designed to reimburse the victim for all the losses they have or will suffer as a result of their injuries. These losses can be economical or non-economical but are usually a mixture of both. Depending on your injuries, some of the damages you may recover for a serious injury include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, or aftercare
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of joy
- Loss of consortium
Your attorney will better be able to determine the exact value of your losses, including pain and suffering, and ensure you are compensated fully. This may require consultations with several expert witnesses, including your doctor.
