Accidental Injuries Can Change Your Life

Posted in Car Accidents, Personal Injury on Tuesday, April 7th, 2020

Accidental injuries can change your life for the worse in both short-term and long-term situations. Some accidental injuries can have a mild to a significant impact on your life for a short time period, such as a sprained ankle or a bruised wrist. Other accidental injuries have far-reaching consequences that will change your life forever. If you have experienced the latter type of injury, you need a personal injury lawyer in Illinois that will represent your case tirelessly to seek justice on your behalf. 

Types of Accidents That Can Change Your Life

Many different types of accidents will cause life-altering injuries. For instance:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Hit-and-run accidents
  • Medical malpractice incidents
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Defective products
  • Premise liability accidents such as a slip and fall

These accidents can lead to a myriad of injuries that can change the life of the injured individual and those around them forever. 

Injuries That Can Permanently Disrupt Your Life

While spinal cord and brain injuries may be the first injuries that come to mind when you think about life-changing, there are several others as well. Consider the following injuries and their potential impacts on your life:

Broken Bones

Many broken bones can be mild and heal without problems when a cast or splint is worn, but others can require surgery or even amputation if the bone is crushed. They may lead to severe pain for the rest of your life or the need to wear a prosthesis or limit your activities. 

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

A TBI is perhaps one of the worst accidental injuries that can change your life. There are varying degrees of TBI, but some of the worst ones can leave victims in a vegetative state with no hope of returning to any degree of normalcy. Other TBIs can cause lifelong seizure episodes and personality changes. 

Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)

SPCs hold the potential to be severe. Victims with an SCI can be paralyzed in their legs or in all of their extremities. They may be unable to care for themselves and need around the clock medical assistance for the rest of their lives. 

Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one forever changes a life, no matter how it happens. If it occurs due to an accident injury caused by negligence, the emotional pain can be even more severe.
