Understanding the Different Types of Injuries
There are several types of accidents that can happen due to another party’s negligence, that can lead to different types of injuries. Our attorneys in Ogden, UT, can help you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries while you focus on recovery. Although some injuries are minor, such as abrasions, lacerations, bruises, and sprains, others are much more severe. Some injuries are life altering, resulting in serious damage to the brain, spine, or skin. These types of injuries typically require extensive medical treatment, surgeries, and in some cases, long-term care. If you or a loved one has suffered a severe injury due to another person’s negligence, contact our law firm today to schedule your consultation. We can help ensure you receive adequate compensation for your injuries and medical expenses.
Brain injuries are most commonly seen as a result of a motor vehicle accident. These injuries can range from mild to severe. Even mild brain injuries can result in loss of consciousness, mood changes, and memory loss. Severe brain injuries are usually characterized by unconsciousness lasting more than thirty minutes, depression or irritability, nausea and vomiting, confusion, trouble speaking, or loss of motor skills. Some symptoms may not be immediately apparent. It is important to see a physical immediately following any trauma to the head.
Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure you receive adequate compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost income.
Serious brain injuries typically require many tests and examinations. Rehabilitation may be required for any loss of motor skills. A brain injury is also likely to inhibit your ability to work. This can lead to high medical bills, with little to no income to pay those bills. Our attorneys will work diligently to ensure you receive adequate compensation to cover your medical expenses and lost income.
Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries can happen in a variety of situations, including car accidents, work accidents, and slip and fall accidents. Damage to the spinal cord can cause severe, lifelong, and sometimes irreversible damage. Less severe spinal cord injuries are still likely to result in extensive time off from work and rehabilitation. More severe injuries can result in limited mobility, and even partial or full paralysis.
In addition to the extensive treatments, surgeries, and rehabilitation, special medical equipment may be required if paralysis occurred. Wheelchairs are necessary, and most individuals must renovate their homes to make it more accessible. We will work to ensure you are compensated for your past and future medical expenses. We also seek compensation for lost income due to an inability to work. Spinal cord injuries can be fatal. If the injury resulted in a fatality, we will seek compensation to cover any remaining medical expenses and funeral costs as well.
First-degree burns are generally not likely to cause severe damage or scarring. Anything above a first degree burn, though, can result in permanent damage. Burn injuries can include chemical, open fire or grill, electrical, and radiation burns. These burns can happen in the workplace or at home. A fire in the home may be due to faulty wiring by a negligent electrician.
Medical expenses for burn injuries will vary based on the severity of the burn, the location of the burn, and the extent of damage. Some victims may require skin grafts or plastic surgery to repair the damage caused. As your attorneys, we will work to ensure you receive reasonable compensation to cover your medical expenses and any lost income due to time off work.
