Many Accidents Can Lead To Personal Injury Claims
Personal injuries can result from many different types of incidents and the specific issues that may arise in your case will closely depend on the type of accident that occurred. Some of the following are common examples of accidents involved in cases that our Boca Raton personal injury attorneys handle:
These accidents cause serious injuries to a substantial number of victims on a regular basis. For example, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 2.3 million individuals sustain injuries in traffic-related accident in a single year in the United States. Additionally, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), an estimated 8.9 million individuals visit emergency rooms each year to seek medical treatment after a slip, trip, or fall. These statistics indicate that accidents and injuries can happen to anyone and usually when you least expect it.
These accidents often happen because another party acted negligently and, if that was the case, the negligent party should provide adequate compensation for all of your accident-related losses. In order to recover, however, you have the burden of proving their negligence in court. An experienced Boca Raton personal injury attorney at Lavalle Brown & Ronan, P.A. will understand the type of evidence and arguments required to sufficiently prove negligence to ensure that you financially recover.
Injuries Can Result In Financial Losses And Other Challenges
The compensation you can obtain in your personal injury case will depend on the nature and severity of the injuries you sustained. Some of the injuries we commonly see in our clients include as follows:
- Back or neck injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head trauma or skull fractures
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Major organ damage
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones and fractures
- Crushed limbs
Some of the above injuries can heal relatively quickly and only require physical therapy and doctors’ visits to recover. Still, these expenses can add up as you may require medical equipment, prescription medication, and more. Additionally, if you have any type of remotely strenuous job, you will likely be unable to work until your injury has healed, which can result in lost wages, overtime, and benefits. You should not have to struggle to pay your bills because of these medical expenses and lost income and the negligent party should be held liable for your losses.
While some injuries can be minor, others can be catastrophic and accident victims can face enormous losses. Some injuries can require long stays in the hospital, intensive care, or burn centers for stabilization, surgeries, and invasive treatments. Once released, individuals may have to be transferred to an assisted living facility temporarily before they return home or even permanently if they can no longer live on their own. Other victims with permanent disabilities who can return home will likely require extensive medical equipment and home health care, perhaps for the rest of their lives. These costs can add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars very quickly and victims should have a qualified attorney who knows how to handle these high-dollar amount cases.
In addition to past and future medical costs, severe injuries can keep a victim from ever returning to work and earning a living again. Additionally, permanent disabilities can cause significant challenges with daily activities and social interactions. Because of the substantial challenges personal injury victims may face, they often lose the quality of life they once enjoyed and may develop emotional or psychological issues as a result. We know how to hold the negligent party liable for all of your injury-related losses, both financial and noneconomic, including pain and suffering, emotional distress, and permanent disabilities.
