Types Of Accidents
There are many different ways for a person to get seriously injured in an accident. The most frequent cause of serious injury is being involved in an automobile accident. You could have collided with another automobile, a truck or a motorcycle, or could have been the victim of roadside construction negligence. Slipping and falling, or tripping and falling in a shopping mall, a grocery store, a parking lot or anyone’s personal property can cause severe injuries that require medical attention.
Being injured in an accident due to the negligence of another can have permanent, life-altering consequences. A family breadwinner may become disabled and incapable of working, causing unpaid bills to rapidly pile up. A person could face the loss of their home, car or children’s private schooling. Serious injuries could require permanent, full-time nursing care to execute even the most routine of life’s functions like eating, bathing and using the toilet.
The types of injury you many have suffered are literally unlimited and usually are a combination of many different injuries. Three of the most common forms of serious injuries are to the spinal cord, brain and the mangling of limbs.
Spinal cord injuries – A severed or broken vertebrae can leave an accident victim unable to move their arms or legs. Paralysis can be temporary but is frequently permanent, and the victim could require full-time permanent care.
Traumatic brain injuries – Car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents and workplace accidents can cause a person to strike their heads and suffer a concussion. Extreme cases of brain injuries can leave a patient with amnesia or dementia.
Amputations – It is not hard to imagine how easy it is to have a foot, leg, hand or arm mangled to the extent that amputation is required. When sheet metal is twisted and ripped during a high-impact collision, the metal can become like the blade of a sword and slice through a person in less than a split second.
