WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON INJURIES IN CALIFORNIA?
Chris Purcell handles a variety of personal injury cases including the following:
– traumatic injuries to the brain and spinal cord
– catastrophic back, shoulder, neck, knee, and leg injuries
– scars, burns, and disfigurement
– amputated limbs and bones that have been broken
– additional catastrophic injuries that cause permanent disability
LAWYERS CAN HELP TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY AND SPINAL CORD INJURY VICTIMS
Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are by far the most serious of any kind of injury because of the impact they have on the rest of your life. Traumatic brain injuries, also known as TBIs, can be either mild, moderate or severe. Mild TBIs, or concussions, may involve the loss of consciousness, but this is not true of every case. Moderate or severe TBIs, on the other hand, always lead to the loss of consciousness. In fact, some victims who have suffered moderate or severe TBIs may be unconscious for days, weeks or months.
Spinal cord injuries can lead to partial or total paralysis, depending on the location and the severity of the injury. Both brain and spinal cord injuries can affect your ability to work, have relationships with others, and function on a daily basis.
ORANGE COUNTY LAW FIRMS CAN SEEK JUSTICE FOR BURN VICTIMS
Severe burns are another type of catastrophic injury. Burns are most likely to occur in workplace accidents or because of defective products. Burns can be classified as either first, second, third or fourth degree depending on the extent of the injuries. Depending on the severity of the burn, you may need to be treated with skin grafting procedures, reconstructive plastic surgery, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. Some burns are so severe that they can damage not only the skin, but the tendons, bones and organs as well. It can take years to recover from severe burn injuries, which is why they are considered to be so catastrophic. Burn victims often suffer emotionally as well, especially if the burn caused any degree of disfigurement or scarring.
WHAT ARE OTHER TYPES OF CATASTROPHIC INJURIES?
Shoulders and knees are susceptible to injuries because they are mobile joints. In an accident, shoulders can be dislocated or the rotator cuff can be partially or completely torn. Knees, on the other hand, can be fractured or the meniscuses can tear, making it difficult to get around without a walker, crutches or a wheelchair.
Injuries to the neck and back such as pinched nerves, fractures and slipped disks are very painful and can cause extreme frustration since they can greatly impact your ability to get around on your own. They often require extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation to regain full range of motion.
AMPUTATION VICTIMS WILL NEED REPRESENTATION FROM EXPERIENCED ORANGE COUNTY PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS
A victim may need to have his or her limb partially or completely amputated after a tragic accident. This is especially common in motorcycle or construction accidents, but it can happen at any time. Leg amputations can disrupt your everyday life and make it difficult for you to get around easily. Other amputations can impact your ability to do everyday tasks or retain your job if it requires use of your hands or arms. Although prosthetic limbs are available, many victims still suffer emotionally after losing a limb. Many amputation victims suffer from depression, anxiety and mood swings after an accident as they adjust to their new, vastly changed lifestyle.
