Common Injuries Among Accident Victims

In many personal injury cases, the injuries sustained have the capability of not only causing immediate pain but also inflicting long-term challenges and health issues to victims, significantly impacting a victim’s quality of life and ability to function.

Some of the most common injuries we see in these cases include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Broken Bones and Fractures
  • Whiplash and Neck Injuries
  • Soft Tissue Injuries (such as sprains and strains)
  • Internal Organ Damage
  • Burns and Scarring
  • Amputations

From traumatic brain injuries that disrupt cognitive function to spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis, each injury carries its own unique challenges and burdens, potentially affecting victims’ ability to work, perform daily tasks, and enjoy the activities they once loved. It is important victims seek the aid of an experienced attorney who will tirelessly fight for maximum compensation and ensure the parties at fault are held accountable for the needless pain and suffering they have caused.

What Types of Damages Are Available to You?

After an accident, the impact can extend far beyond physical injuries. You may find yourself facing a mountain of medical bills, unable to work and provide for your family, and dealing with the emotional toll of pain and suffering. These challenges can intensify the stress and anxiety you are already feeling.

At Douglas & London, we understand the depth of these challenges. That is why we are committed to fighting for every type of compensation you are entitled to, including coverage for:

  • Medical Expenses: From emergency room visits to ongoing treatment and rehabilitation, we will ensure you are reimbursed for all medical costs associated with your injuries.
  • Lost Wages: If you cannot work because of the accident, we will fight to get you the money you lost.
  • Pain and Suffering: We recognize that the emotional and physical pain you are enduring is just as real and significant as any economic loss. We will seek compensation for the emotional and physical toll of the accident.
  • Property Damage: Any damage to your belongings will be included in your compensation.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: If your injuries have permanently impaired your ability to work or earn an income, we will fight to recover compensation for the financial impact this will have on your future.

Do not let insurance companies dictate the terms of your recovery. Insurance companies will want to settle as quickly and cheaply as possible. We are here to make sure that this does not happen and that you are not pressured into accepting less than you deserve. Our priority is to secure full and fair compensation for all your losses, giving you the resources you will need to rebuild your life after the accident.

How to Determine Liability in a Staten Island Personal Injury Case

In a personal injury lawsuit, proving negligence is key to winning your case. Here is what you need to show:

  • Duty of Care: It must be proven that the person you are suing had a responsibility to act reasonably to avoid harming you.
  • Breach of Duty: They failed to meet that responsibility by acting carelessly or recklessly.
  • Causation: Their careless actions directly caused your injuries.
  • Damages: You suffered actual harm or losses because of their actions.

Proving these points requires gathering evidence and presenting it effectively in court. An experienced Staten Island personal injury lawyer can help you navigate this process and fight for the compensation you deserve.
