There are a lot of different injuries that can result from car, work, or other accidents. When someone fails to exercise reasonable care for the safety of another person, they can be held liable for damages. Here is a list of 10 common personal injuries.

  1. Burn Injuries– Burns are some of the most difficult injuries to treat successfully, and often leave permanent scarring, impacting the abilities and emotional health of the victim. These injuries can be the result of explosions, car accidents, electrical accidents, toxic exposure, and other incidents.
  2. Spinal Cord Injuries– The spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that sends signals from the brain to all other areas of the body. When the spinal cord is damaged, the results are often permanent, leading to paralysis.
  3. Traumatic Brain Injuries– Brain injuries are extremely dangerous. Although medical science has made great strides, the brain remains a mystery. Some fully recover while others suffer permanent damage, and the prognosis in a traumatic brain injury is usually uncertain.
  4. Ankle & Foot Injuries– There are a variety of accidents that can lead to ankle and foot injuries. Ankle and foot injuries make it difficult to engage in usual daily activities, and can also result in permanent disabilities.
  5. Broken Bones– A broken bone is a very serious injury. It can easily become infected or fail to heal correctly. The pain involved can be extensive, particularly in fractures in which the bone is broken in several places, requiring several surgeries to repair.
  6. Eye Injuries– Injuries to the eye can cause permanent loss of vision. These cases affect the victim so extensively that compensation for damages is usually very high.
  7. Ear Injuries– Hearing impacts every area of life. Those who have suffered such an injury deserve to have legal representation that knows how to fight for the compensation deserved.
  8. Leg & Hip Injuries– Injuries to the leg or hip can cause a great deal of pain, trouble, and stress. These injuries are common in a variety of types of accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, as well as slip and fall, and workplace accidents. The recovery time varies widely, based on the victim’s general state of health.
  9. Knee Injuries– A knee injury can be difficult to fully resolve. If you have suffered a serious knee injury that will require extensive medical intervention, surgery and rehabilitation, you want to ensure that your settlement reflects the costs that you will be dealing with.
  10. Shoulder, Arm & Elbow Injuries– There are a number of accidents that lead to serious shoulder, arm, or elbow injuries, including slip and fall accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. These injuries are painful, and may require surgery, rehabilitation, and make it impossible to go to work and earn a living.
