People suffer serious injuries in accidents every day in the United States. Though these injuries may happen in the blink of an eye, they may have long-lasting—and often permanent—effects on a victim’s life. Many accidents and injuries occur because another party acted in a negligent manner. Negligent parties may be other individuals or entities, such as product manufacturers or trucking companies. No matter what the specifics may be of your accident, if you suffered a serious injury due to another party’s negligence, you have the legal right to recover financially for all of your losses by filing a personal injury lawsuit. An experienced Pittsburgh personal injury lawyer can assist you in determining whether you have a potential case.

Causes of Serious Injuries

Serious injuries may be caused in many different types of accidents that arise out of negligence. Some of the most common incidents that cause serious injuries include the following:

An experienced personal injury attorney will know how to help you recover no matter what kind of incident occurred.

Common Serious Injuries

The types of injuries that may result from accidents may be also be extremely varied. The amount of recovery possible in your personal injury case will depend on the type and severity of injury you suffered. The following are some common serious injuries suffered in preventable accidents:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputation of limbs
  • Broken bones
  • Injuries to children
  • Burns
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Other catastrophic injuries
  • Fatal injuries

While some victims may physically recover from their serious injuries after a period of time and rehabilitation, other victims may be left with permanent disfigurement or disabilities due to their serious injuries. The amount you may recover in your case depends on the extent of medical treatment you required, the amount of income you lost, the pain and suffering you experienced, and whether you have any life-long effects from the injury.

Additionally, if a serious injury caused death to one of your loved ones, you are entitled to file a wrongful death claim in order to recover from the responsible party. Though financial recovery will likely never ease your grief, it can make it easier to deal with the loss of a loved one and find a sense of justice. An experienced attorney at Flaherty Fardo can help you file either a personal injury or wrongful death claim, depending on the details of your case.
