There are many different types of injuries that may entitle you to compensation. If you feel you may qualify, it is important to contact an experienced injury attorney to find out what your rights are and just how much compensation you may be able to receive. Here are just a few of the injuries that you should definitely call an injury lawyer to discuss:
Brain injuries can be very difficult, expensive, and have repercussions for a lifetime. They can often lead to loss of employment and stress on members of your family and other relationships. Brain injuries are usually caused by a severe blow to the head, inadequate levels of oxygen reaching the brain, illegal drugs, electric shock, or even a heart attack or stroke. Symptoms and results of a brain injury include dizziness, headache, unconsciousness, amnesia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, drastic mood swings, and impaired speaking or thinking. After obtaining necessary urgent medical care, contact an injury attorney for a consultation to discuss your options.
Body and Limb Injuries:
If you’ve suffered a serious body or limb injury, the odds are in your favor that an injury attorney can help you receive compensation. From auto accidents to on-the-job injuries to sports-related accidents, limb or body injuries can result in compound fractures, joint dislocations, severed body parts, cracked or broken bones, sprains, strains, torn muscles, or even severe organ damage. Many of these injuries can result in long periods of rehabilitation or hospitalization, plus loss of wages and plenty of emotional trauma. After receiving primary medical care, contact an injury attorney to discuss what solution is best for you.
Head and Face Injuries:
Head and face injuries can be very painful and traumatic and often result in facial deformities and emotional stress. Symptoms of serious head and face injuries include loss of consciousness, memory loss, swelling, bleeding, pain, and discoloration. They can also result in vision or hearing loss. Because these injuries can affect many of your body’s vital organs, you should first obtain medical care and then contact an experienced injury attorney. He or she can help you receive compensation for your lost wages and medical bills.
Back injuries can be very debilitating and worsen over time, keeping you off your feet and out of work. To make matters worse, treatment can be very expensive—in fact, back injury victims pay an estimated $30 million in medical expenses each year. Symptoms of a serious back injury include sharp pain or persistent soreness in the back and legs, difficulty walking, sleeping, sitting, or lifting, and partial or total paralysis. If you have sustained a major back injury following an auto, sports, or workplace accident, you should seek medical and legal help immediately.
There are many other injuries you should consult an injury attorney about, including serious burns, heart and lung injuries, dog bites or other animal-related injuries, birth defects, and more. If you have any questions, please contact us at the Law Offices of Brent C. Miller, P.A.
