4 Permanent Injuries You Can Suffer From After A Sarasota Crash

Some people would count themselves lucky enough to survive a car crash, leaving with only a few scrapes, bruises, or serious injuries that can heal just after a few days of rest. However, there are also many unfortunate cases where victims suffer from injuries that could change their lives and affect them forever. These are permanent injuries and here are some that you can get after a car nasty car accident.

• Losing The Sense Of Sight - Serious head injuries can lead to blindness. Being hit or penetrated by sharp objects during the accident can also injure your eyes severely, resulting in a loss of sight. While some are lucky enough to lose their vision for a few days or months, there are also who permanently become blind. It is yet another permanent injury that could limit your movements and change your regular life.

• Spinal Injury - Your spinal cord is one of the most important parts of your body, and severely injuring it could lead to paralysis. Even without losing a limb, people who suffer from spinal injuries could lose movement in some parts, or experience whole body paralysis.

• Amputation - There are many injuries that could totally wreck not just your vehicle, but also your body. When a body part is deemed beyond salvageable, removing them by amputation is the only way left if you want to save the rest of yourself. This can be an arm, a leg, or even both. No matter which limb is lost, it will never change the fact that this will affect a person’s employment, lifestyle, and even outlook in life.

• Scarring - Some injuries could leave physical evidence even after when they are healed. Deep cuts and serious burns from a car accident could produce obvious scars that cannot be covered. Some burns can even change the color of your skin or prevent hair growth in areas like your head and eyebrows. While the entire body can function normally again, severe scars can instead impact a person’s mental condition.

Filing A Personal Injury Claim

Permanent injuries cannot be undone, but victims are still entitled to receive compensation for their suffering. Filing a personal injury claim could help survivors with health and financial recovery, maintenance, and other things that may have been negatively affected like loss of income due to their inability to go back to work. To file a personal injury claim, you need to:

• Contact A Personal Injury Lawyer - Getting a personal injury attorney should be your first step because, with their help, you can breeze through the other processes while you focus on your recovery. Having a lawyer can help you make the right decisions that are best for your situation. Lawyers will also act as your representatives.

• Gather Evidence And Important Documentation - Your attorney will help gather these essential files which include all your medical history, hospital bills, medication receipts, and other proof of the accident. Get a hold of any pictures, CCTV footage, and witness statements to make your claims undisputable.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
