Common Types
of Injuries

When you are involved in an accident or other personal injury incident, you may have suffered a wide variety of injuries, ranging from minor injuries like cuts or bruises, to serious injuries like amputations, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries.

Whether minor or severe, when you need to seek medical treatment for your injuries and when your injuries keep you out of work, you deserve to be compensated for the damages your injuries cause you.

No matter how minor or serious your injuries are, let our personal injury lawyers help you pursue a claim for compensation for the medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages you’ve incurred due your injuries.

How to Seek Compensation
for the Harm You’ve Suffered

When you are injured in an accident or other incident, there are steps you can take to protect your rights and ensure that you can receive the maximum compensation you are entitled to.
  1. Take photos
    First, you should try to take photographs of the accident scene, if at all possible, as soon as possible after your accident. Photographic evidence may be critical to proving what exactly caused your injuries and who may have been responsible for the accident (and how they caused the accident).
  2. Seek medical attention
    Next, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you don’t feel like you were badly injured, many injuries can develop worsening symptoms over time. Prompt medical attention can not only improve your prognosis for recovery and your recovery time, but it will also give you medical evidence to prove that your injuries were caused by your accident and not from some other cause.
  3. Decline to speak with insurance
    Following an accident or other incident that causes injuries, you may be contacted by insurance companies looking to offer you a settlement. You can protect yourself by declining to offer a statement or to sign any paperwork without first speaking with an experienced personal injury attorney. Insurance companies are not on your side; they will look for any opportunity to reduce the amount of money they have to pay to you, including seizing on any statements you make to argue that you bear some or all of the responsibility for the accident or incident that caused your injuries.
  4. Contact an attorney
    As a result, you can best protect your legal rights and options for compensation by retaining an experienced personal injury attorney to represent you. An attorney can speak to insurance companies and defense attorneys on your behalf to persuasively advocate for your rights and interests.

Personal Injury
Compensation

If you have suffered personal injuries, you may be entitled to various types of damages to compensate you for the losses caused by your injuries. Personal injury compensation can compensate you for economic damages, which are specific financial losses, or for non-economic damages, which are subjective personal harm that you may have suffered.
If you or a loved one have been injured due to someone else’s intentional acts or negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the medical expenses you’ve incurred, your lost wages and earning potential, and the pain and suffering you’ve endured. Don’t delay starting the process of obtaining the compensation you deserve another day.

Economic damage
examples

  • hospital bills
  • surgery
  • doctor’s office visits
  • prescription medication
  • physical and occupational therapy
  • durable medical equipment
  • Lost wages due to work missed during your recovery
  • Reduced earning capacity, if your injuries prevent you from returning to the kind or amount of work that you used to do prior to your injuries

Non-economic damage
examples

  • Pain and suffering, or the physical and/or mental distress and anguish caused by your injuries
  • Loss of quality of life, caused by disability, disfigurement, and/or inability to perform daily tasks or enjoy activities you used to do before your injuries
  • Loss of consortium, which provides compensation to a spouse for the loss of your companionship and society due to your injuries
