Suffering a catastrophic injury is an extremely traumatic experience for any victim. In many cases, though, the physical scarring or other permanent reminders of the accident can be just as damaging on an emotional level. If you have suffered any kind of disfigurement due to injuries in an accident you did not cause, you may have a claim for additional damages.
Loss Of Limb
The loss of a limb will permanently change the victim’s life. The people who suffer these serious injuries know all too well just how difficult it is to adjust to life after the loss. While prosthetics may be available in some cases, they are expensive and even the most advanced is not the same as the real thing.
Spinal Cord Injury
The spine houses the brain’s main communications network, helping you perform the basic physical actions of everyday life. Serious spinal cord injuries mean that communication with the brain is lost completely—typically forever. Victims of spinal cord injuries can also suffer from paralysis, paraplegia (paralysis of the body’s lower extremities) or quadriplegia (paralysis of the body’s limbs and torso). The spinal cord cannot heal itself as other tissues in the body can. Spinal cord injuries can also lead to a variety of long-term health issues, including numbness in the extremities, pressure sores, pneumonia and genitourinary problems.
The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm strives to manage your case with respect and sensitivity, as we understand that a spinal cord injury is life-changing and difficult to recover from both physically and emotionally. We can help you during this challenging time by providing you with the most aggressive approach to obtaining the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Among the benefits injury victims are entitled to seek are:
- Current and future medical care
- Psychological care
- Lost wages and earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Altered mobility needs, such as wheelchairs and handicapped vehicles
Depending on their severity, broken bones can change a victim’s life forever. In some cases, even a seemingly minor break can turn out to be a very serious injury and lead to a lifetime of pain and decreased usability of the injured body part.
Burn injuries can be among the most painful you will ever experience, and they can often take the most time to heal. Whether it is 1st, 2nd or 3rd degree burns, the long-term damage from serious burns can affect victims for a lifetime. If you have suffered a serious first, second or third degree burn injury, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced personal injury attorney to determine if you may have access to compensation.
The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm has the experience and understanding necessary to successfully evaluate and handle any of these types of personal injury cases, and more.
