How Are Serious Injuries Defined?

During these accidents, you or someone you know may sustain a serious personal injury. Definitions may be somewhat nebulous, but injuries to the neck, back and spine are some of the most common serious injuries. Injuries to these vulnerable areas of the body can limit mobility, including your ability to walk, reach or lift objects.

Other motor functions and cognitive abilities may be temporarily or permanently damaged. A traumatic brain injury, commonly known as a TBI, is often one of the most difficult injuries to recover from because of the long-term or permanent impact on a victim.

In addition to affecting family relationships and basic mobility, a serious accident can have a long-term impact on your ability to work. In some cases, a debilitating injury can end a career, especially for someone who worked previously in a profession that required a great deal of physical exertion like carpentry, welding, truck driving or landscaping.

Determining the amount of lost income will play a major role in the amount of money that can be recovered in any possible settlement. Having spent years representing victims, our attorneys have honed their skills and can make rational calculations, allowing you to recover the maximum sum for pain and suffering, as well as medical bills and lost income. We also handle workers’ compensation claims for those who were seriously injured in an on-the-job accident.
