Life-changing serious injury cases

Accidents that occurred due to the fault of another individual or group can lead to both minor or serious injuries and can be a life-altering event. No matter how much of your damages your insurance policy will cover or to what extent you will recover physically, the bitter memory of the event will always remain in your mind.car accident attorneys

The most devastating serious injuries that an individual can sustain are related to:

• Head and brain injuries (including TBI)
• Arm or leg amputations
• Clinical malpractice
• Spinal injuries
• Paralysis (Spastic Cerebral Palsy, Athetoid or Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy and Ataxic Cerebral Palsy)
• Asbestos related illness

Serious injuries

To file for a serious injury compensation claim you must be familiar with the negligence tort law. This is important for those of you who are concerned about understanding their own personal rights in particular. Of course, most people are not competent enough in that field, and therefore cannot handle their claims themselves, not to mention to do self-litigation. That is why contacting a well-experienced attorney is important.

If you have sustained serious injuries you probably need an attorney to secure you a large compensation settlement. The longer you wait before hiring at attorney to deal with your claim, case investigation and defense, the slimmer your chances for obtaining the monetary reimbursement you deserve.

Do not fall for the offers of the insurance company of the party at fault before consulting with your negligence attorney, they may try to compensate you only for your initial medical expenses and we all know that serious injuries demand an ongoing treatment and an amount covering only your first days in hospital will be highly insufficient. If you think you deserve more than the money offered to you in the initial settlement you must hire an attorney to fight for your rights in court. Our firm has extensive experience in injury claims with a high success rate of large compensations. Call our office for a free consultation

Spinal Cord Injuries: The Basics

Approximately 250,000 Americans are currently living with a spinal cord injury, and another 11,000 suffer new spinal cord injuries each year as a result of car accidents, falls, medical errors and other mishaps. Whatever the cause, a spinal cord injury can have severe and lifelong consequences.

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

When the spinal cord is injured, it can lose its ability to convey information between the brain and the parts of the body that are below the injury, leading to numbness and paralysis in the affected body parts.

Depending on the extent of the damage, a spinal cord injury is classified as either “complete” or “incomplete.” When no sensation or motor function remains below the point of injury, the injury is complete. In contrast, when the injured person retains some amount of sensation or motor function in the affected areas, the injury is incomplete.

Act Quickly to Preserve Evidence

Although gathering evidence for a potential lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind after a serious accident, a failure to act quickly to preserve evidence after an injury can lead to evidence being lost or destroyed.

Taking photographs or video of the accident scene while it is still fresh is a simple and effective way to preserve information about the accident. Photographing or filming the scene from a variety of angles and viewpoints helps to record details about the accident itself as well as the broader context in which the accident took place.

Also, make sure to write down the names and contact information of anyone who was involved in the accident, as well as any witnesses, so that you can get in touch with them later if you need to. If you decide to seek compensation for your injuries, people who saw what happened may be able to help you prove your case.

It is wise to begin preserving evidence right after an accident, even if you are not certain that you want to take legal action. Also make sure to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn about your legal options and avoid missing any important deadlines.

Dedicated Representation for Auto Accident Victims

 

Serious traffic accidents often happen on major freeways including interstates. In the city and in other locations statewide, and in neighboring states as well, major crashes also take place on lesser-known highways, county roads and city streets. Car wrecks causing serious injuries include single-car accidents (such as rollovers or collisions with construction barriers), intersection crashes, sideswipe accidents on highways, rear-end accidents and head-on collisions (often happening when one vehicle is going the wrong way on a freeway).

Whatever the circumstances, it is in your best interest to seek legal representation right away following a serious accident. Contact our personal injury lawyers to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your situation.
