The Effects of Permanent Injury

The effects of serious injuries such as a spinal cord injury or brain injury can be lifelong. For the rest of your life, your potential career options can be limited. For the rest of your life, you may need follow-up medical care, personal care, and other supports. In the initial months after the accident, you may need surgery and expensive treatments, but even in the long term you may need to miss work or get emotional support to deal with the impact of your injuries. This can easily add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars or even more, depending on injury.

A serious injury from which you are expected to heal can also have devastating consequences. If you lose a tooth, for example, you will need to periodically need to get your bridge replaced or repaired, which can add up to tens of thousands of dollars over the years. If you have permanent scarring which does not affect mobility, it can still have an impact on your relationships, you sense of self, and even on some job prospects.

Insurance After a Serious Injury

When you’re injured, you expect the insurer you have paid premiums to help. The reality is that what insurance companies may give you and what you may need to recover  can be very different. An insurance company may consider you recovered after you have had some initial treatment for a serious injury, but the insurance company may not take into account the full cost of ongoing treatment and the ongoing impact of a serious injury.

It is for this reason that you will want to speak to a personal injury attorney who can properly evaluate the full and true cost of your injury and can help you seek fair compensation. Without a fair settlement or a fair insurance amount, you could end up paying some of the costs for your serious injury out-of-pocket.

Keep in mind, too, that the costs of your medical expenses will increase with inflation over time. If you have had an amputation, for example, as inflation impacts costs and as advances in prosthetics improve, the cost of future prosthetics will be higher than the cost prosthetics today. You and your attorney can consider this when seeking a fair settlement for your injuries.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
