Types of Bodily Injuries
There are a variety of bodily injuries that may result from a wide range of accidents. These injuries may include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): TBI is typically the result of blunt force trauma to the head, common in car accidents, but can also result from other accidents, such as medical malpractice due to a lack of oxygen. This injury can result in cognitive or physical impairment, can be life-threatening, and may have life-long consequences.
- Burn Injury: Burn injury may result from a chemical, electrical, open flame or grill burn, and more. Serious burns are likely to result in scarring and can be life-threatening.
- Spinal Cord Injury: A spinal cord injury may result from a motor vehicle accident, a workplace accident, or a slip and fall accident. This type of injury can be fatal and may result in paralysis.
- Loss of Limb: The loss of a limb can result from a car accident, a workplace accident, the use of defective or malfunctioning machinery, or medical malpractice. Loss of limb may occur during the accident, or as part of a necessary surgical treatment. Costly prosthetics are typically necessary to replace the amputated limb.
- Facial Damage: This type of injury can result from a wide variety of accidents and may require extensive plastic surgery or other treatments.
Any catastrophic bodily injury is likely to result in extensive and costly medical treatment. An personal injury attorney works diligently to ensure you receive adequate compensation for these expenses and other damages.
