Permanent Car Accident Injury
The Hoffmann Law Firm, L.L.C. can help you recover financial compensation for permanent car accident injuries caused by a negligent driver.
Automobile accidents occur at an alarmingly high frequency, leaving drivers and passengers with an array of different injuries ranging from minor scrapes and cuts to permanent, long term disabilities. Even more alarming is the number of people who are injured as the result of another driver’s negligence, often times leading to a long lasting adverse effect on the quality of your life. We can help you recover financial compensation for these damages. Contact our office as soon as possible to speak with an experienced car accident attorney about your injury claim. The most devastating injuries that result from a car accident are the ones that you will have to live with for the rest of your life. These can include major traumas such as spinal cord or brain injury or scarring left over from deep lacerations. These types of permanent injury deserve special consideration when filing a claim for a car accident.
How Scarring May Affect Your Life
Although scarring may not necessarily affect your ability to live as you did before the accident, it does affect the way you look and the way you feel about yourself. Large scars will increase the amount of your damages significantly, especially if they are visible on the neck or face. Our law firm has years of experience in handling car accidents that result in this type of permanent injury and will also help you in recovering the compensation you are entitled to. Scarring is weighted in personal injury claims by its size and location on the body. As previously mentioned, visible scars are weighted heavily, while small scars that are covered by clothing are not considered grave. Other factors prevail, such as when the scar is on a body part that flexes, such as your elbow or knee. Since scarring makes skin less flexible, it could cause slight immobility of joints. As experienced car accident attorneys who have dealt with all types of injuries, our firm will help to ensure that your scars are taken into consideration when deciding on a fair settlement.
Back and Spine Injuries
Back injuries from a car accident are another form of permanent injury that deserves special attention from our law firm. Even a minor injury to a disc or vertebrae can cause you to have flair ups of pain for years afterwards. Speak with one of our car accident attorneys immediately if you are being treated for a back injury as a result of a car accident. Even when your physician determines that the injury is resolved, it is important that he notes in your medical records the likelihood of pain recurring. This will help in proving that you have suffered a permanent injury.
