Ongoing Medical Care
Car accidents can lead to serious injuries that may require ongoing medical care.
After a car accident, you hope that the injuries you have sustained will heal and you can resume your life as it was before a negligent driver crashed into you. This is the result for the majority of car crash victims, but for those who sustain a permanent disability as a result, the lifestyle they loved will be lost forever.
A permanent disability caused by a car accident will have a lasting effect on your quality of life. Especially when the injury is so debilitating that on-going medical care is necessitated. We have experience in cases such as yours and can help in securing the financial resources you will need to pay for that ongoing medical care.
When a car accident results in a permanent disability you are facing the possibility of never being able to work again or enjoy the same hobbies that you are used to. To ensure that the negligent driver is held responsible for causing such losses in your life, you will need an aggressive firm like ours who will push for full compensation for all of your future needs.
Injuries Often Requiring Ongoing Medical Care
There are a variety of injuries that are common in a car accident that can be permanently debilitating. These include:
• Traumatic Brain Injuries: An injury to the brain can cause both physical and mental disabilities to the victim of a car accident. Even after the injury has healed, lingering symptoms can still persist.
• Spinal Cord Injuries: The trauma of a car accident can cause damage to the spinal column that results in either partial or complete paralysis. Even if the function is restored, years of therapy may be necessary to reach the capabilities you had before the accident. For those who don’t recover, hundreds of thousands of dollars may be necessary for adaptive devices and future medical care.
• Internal Organ Damage: The thrust forward that an accident victim endures when his car is struck can result in severe damage to the internal organs, particularly in the abdomen area. These types of injuries can be life-threatening as internal bleeding can become uncontrollable. Organ transplants may be necessary which will result in a lifetime of follow up care and possible secondary surgeries.
• Amputation: The loss of a limb is a catastrophic physical injury that can also lead to severe mental anxiety as the car accident victim deals with bouts of depression as a result. The ability to perform normal day to day activities such as driving or picking up your own child may become limited.
