After an accident you may be suffering from some form of injury but you may not be sure whether the injury sustained is worth pursuing a personal injury claim.
Some injuries may seem very minor at the outset and you may think the pain will just go away on its own over time. Many injuries also do not become apparent immediately and will start to show up within 1-2 days after the accident. It is important that you seek medical attention after the accident especially for your own health and wellbeing and also to ensure that any injury sustained is documented in your medical history.
We have listed below some common types of injuries we see in our clients who have been victims of Personal Injury Accidents.
Top Common Injuries
- Head and Brain Injuries: This can include trauma to the head such as minor concussion or more serious brain injuries such as internal bleeding, skull fractures or lacerations that require plastic surgery.
- Neck and Back Injuries: This can include minor whiplash, strains and sprains or slipped discs and spinal cord damage.
- Burn and Scarring Injuries: This can range from scarring as a result of lacerations or minor burns as well as more serious burns which may require skin grafts and plastic surgery.
- Soft Tissue Injuries: These are injuries most commonly sustained in road traffic accidents or slip and trips. It is when muscles, tendons or ligaments are stretched or torn in an accident. In some cases the pain can be significant and lingering.
- Fractures: These can include simple fractures to the arms or legs or more serious breaks. Some may require surgery to fix and can take considerable time to heal.
