Scars and Burns
Burns are among the top three causes of death. While that number seems high, severe burns are often the result of car accidents, product liability, building fires, and a variety of other incidents where traumatic damage to the skin is the leading factor in someone's death. The common types of burns include heat, electrical chemical, radiation, friction, and cold burns.
Scars (in terms of burn scars, surgical scars, bite marks, etc.) are another major factor in personal injury claims. If, for example, a child is bitten by a dog and has lasting scars, a bodily injury lawyer will account for the trauma during the claims process.
Head, Neck, and Spine Injuries
There are countless ways to injure these three sensitive parts of your body. You could be in a car accident, twist your back moving crates at work, take a nasty slip down a flight of icy stairs, or develop injuries from repetitive motion. A lot of times, victims of, for example, a car accident, may complain of minor neck or back pain. Whiplash is a serious concern, and it can take weeks after a wreck to realize the severity of your injuries. This is why our St. Louis bodily injury lawyers recommend that no matter how minor the accident, it's absolutely essential to seek medical attention. Getting an x-ray and additional information on your medical records can mean the difference between fair reimbursement and a cheap buyout.
Joints and Knees
Other common injuries that often result in settlements include joint- and knee-related complications. Again, repetitive motion, a fall, a car accident, a botched surgery, and other events (or a culmination of events) can lead to lasting pain and increasing medical expenses. If the injury is work-related, you may have a workers compensation claim. Our bodily injury lawyers stress the importance of recording any pain and irritation and to get medical attention.
