No one likes being hurt, whether it’s a car accident or a paper cut, but as we all know some injuries can have a longer effect than others. You might walk away from a total wreck with nary a scratch or end up getting knocked of your bicycle by someone who wasn’t looking when they opened their car door and end up with years of chronic pain. The severity of the initial injury only plays a part in how it can affect your everyday life – and some issues can ripple into further problems that can last a lifetime.
Slip and fall injuries can result in long term disability as can motor vehicle accidents. Incessant pain, and physical, emotional, and cognitive impairments can result in lack of mobility, inability to hold a job effectively, and other problems that can affect one’s financial and personal life. Spinal cord injuries can be especially devastating with the need for attendant care, rehabilitation, and long-term medical assistance. Even injuries that may have been considered to be not too severe can result in orthopaedic problems that can curtail recreational activity and make daily household tasks extremely difficult.
Psychological trauma can often happen after a particularly harrowing experience – especially one coupled with the pain of physical harm. That said, one need not be injured to be scarred psychologically and just the mental reliving of a particularly horrific moment could create a long-term impact as well. Brain injuries too can create significant psychological problems in addition to all the attendant symptoms that normally arise. Brain injuries in particular can create a significant drain on the emotional and financial reserves of a person or family due to the immense amount of medical care and daily assistance that will be required in the long-term.
What all of these injuries have in common is the need for additional medical assistance and the ability to fully concentrate on recovery. That will require financial resources and if you were injured through the fault of another those resources are owed to you. Take action to get the compensation you deserve.
