Why Make a Personal Injury Claim?
Depending on the severity of an injury, the consequences can be lifelong. A blow to the spine, which frequently occurs in car and trucks accidents, can cause paralysis below the point of the injury. It can cause pain that can last months, years, or a lifetime. Brain injuries are similarly extremely serious. A blow to the head can cause permanent damage to one’s mental abilities. Effects can include poor memory, reduced concentration abilities, depression, anxiety, irritability, difficulty sleeping, difficult speaking, and more.
The emotional toll of an accident can also be great. Emotional trauma from a severe accident can lead to depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. These mental illnesses slow healing in the physical injuries from the accident, sometimes manifesting as injuries that never fully heal.
For many of these injuries, rehabilitation can restore some or all of one’s functions prior to the accident. However, the success of rehabilitation depends entirely on how soon treatment begins. Starting treatment too late can mean the injuries never have a chance to heal. Many families struggle to provide these necessary treatments to their loved ones because the cost can be prohibitively high, even with the help of insurance.
