Accidents, resulting in injuries, are unexpected and unfortunate occurrences that can have lifelong disastrous effects on the victim’s health and well-being.

A settlement or verdict in your favor can be the financial compensation that you need to ensure proper care for your recuperation or to provide for your loved ones after a personal injury.
Injuries from Accidents Cause Lasting Physical and Emotional Scars
Head trauma is defined as harm to the brain, skull, or scalp. It can be classified as an open injury with bleeding wounds, or a closed injury with no visible harm. Symptoms can include an altered consciousness, skull deformity, clear fluid draining from the ears or nose, bruising of the skin, vision changes, and vomiting. Long term effects can create challenges as the victim has to adapt and adjust to a new reality. Traumatic brain injury can cause physical or mental disabilities such as temporary or permanent paralysis, spasticity, changes in cognition and sensory perceptions, and social, vocational, and emotional changes. If head trauma is present, it is also possible that the person is suffering from neck and back injuries. Neck and back injuries have a level of severity ranging from whiplash, which occurs from forceful movements of the neck in an accident, to the most severe vertebrae fractures, dislocations, or torn and ruptured discs. Long term effects include loss of balance, chronic pain, stiffness, mobility issues, vertigo, headaches, and degenerative disc disease which may last for a lifetime. Catastrophic injuries can cause scarring and disfigurements from lacerations, amputations, eye injuries, crush injuries, and burns that require surgeries, prosthetics, and rehabilitation. This leaves victims to deal with the physical pain in addition to issues of depression or loss of self-esteem. Post traumatic stress occurs when the shock of an event causes disabling stress, with permanent psychological issues.
