Most Serious Lifelong Injuries
Accidents can happen to any of us due to another person's negligence. They can happen at home, at work or on the road. Unfortunately, there is a large list of serious, lifelong injuries that can be attributed to some of these accidents, and they ruin lives every single day. If a company or an individual caused your injuries, there are legal actions we may be able to take in court to seek compensation for the damages sustained and help you seek a favorable outcome.
Depending on the type of accident and where it happened usually determines the severity. We have compiled a list of a few of the most common, serious lifelong injuries that result in accidents caused by some degree of negligence.
Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is one of worst and most costly, in so many ways, that can result from someone's negligence. When the spine is injured, it almost always results in lasting paralysis that occurs immediately. Depending on where the cord is damaged, the injury can involve either all four limbs or half the body. It is a permanent, crushing, and life-changing injury.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury is just as serious as a spinal injury. Also, it can either lead to or cause immediate and varying degrees of brain damage. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, you might not be able to speak, walk, or perform routine tasks. Finally, a brain injury causes its victim terrible psychological pain, physical agony, or both.

Additionally, the initial impact of serious burns can cause loss of work either temporarily or permanently, additional surgeries, and long-term psychiatric care.
