It doesn’t matter if it’s a fender bender or a slip and fall, accidents wreak havoc. Not only can an accident be financially devastating but mentally and physically as well. A Philadelphia personal injury lawyer can help make sure your losses are at a minimum and help insure your present and future needs are dealt with.
Spinal cord and brain injuries, broken bones, disfigurement, sprains and wrongful death issues can seriously diminish your quality of life and change it forever.
Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis, constant pain, and denigrating handicaps. They can limit your ability to earn wages now and in the future. Regardless of the severity, there will be medical bills, medication and physical therapy that can last for years.
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is a major source of death and disability throughout the world. Car accidents often involve some type of TBI and can cause years of damage as secondary injuries. Secondary injuries show up days, weeks or even later. People suffering from TBI can require 24 hour care and strenuous physical therapy.
Broken bones, sprains and disfigurements from an accident are most often minor repercussions from an accident but can have lasting effects. Broken bones will often cause pain later in life and may even result in loss of wages in future years.
The simple act of being in an accident of any kind can cause mental issues like depression and stress disorders. Recurring nightmares and flash backs of the accident and its aftermath can leave deep scars on the human psyche. Depression can be temporary or it can last a lifetime.
Accidents can be just as devastating for the victim’s families and never more so than in wrongful death cases. The wrongful death of a loved one from an accident can leave a family in financial ruins on top of the grief of losing a family member.
The aftermath of an accident of any kind is life altering. The help of a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can ensure you and your family get the proper compensation to survive during the trying days following an accident and long after.
