Common Sources Of Personal Injuries

As the term “personal injury” is very broad, it’s important to note that there can be many different situations and objects that may be able to inflict a serious injury onto an innocent individual.

Some common causes of physical injuries may include (but are not limited to):

While the scene following an injury can be quite traumatic, it’s important to try and document a much of the incident while the event is still fresh in the memory of the injury victim and also any witnesses.A modern cell phone with a camera can be an easy device to use to not only collect witness information but to also take photographs of the accident area.

The Different Types Of Personal Damages

While there can be many different causes of injuries that a person can sustain in an accident, there are three primary categories that most injuries fall into:

Physical Wounds – Physical wounds are the most common type of injury in a personal damages lawsuit – simply because there are many different ways for a person to receive them during an accident or premeditated incident.

They generally consist of:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Facial damages
  • Lacerations
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken teeth

…. amongst many others.

Emotional Distress – Emotional distress is often more disabling than a physical injury, but is usually more difficult to detect. When a person has suffered serious injuries, the effects will usually impact every aspect of that person’s life – preventing them from performing even life’s basic functions:

  • his or her ability to work
  • ability to get around as he or she used to
  • to participate in sports and athletic activities
  • to socialize

….just to name a few.

With any mental trauma injury, victims often experience a sudden and substantial change in lifestyle, which can have a dramatic and negative effect on their emotional well-being. At our firm, we are compassionate to injury victims, and have the knowledge, resources and determination fight for your rights in a court of law.

Financial Damages– Financial damages following an injury can be substantial, which can be compounded if the victim has a family or dependents relying on that person’s income.

Some common examples of financial loss can include (but are not limited to):

  • loss of the ability to earn income (for a short period, for a long period or forever
  • incurring medical expenses that can amount to thousands of dollars (and sometimes hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars)
  • lost business opportunities
  • out-patient treatment services
  • medication costs
  • pain and suffering

…. amongst many other factors.

Understandably, coping with such losses can be devastating to not only the injured, but also to their families. The experienced and proven personal injury attorneys at our firm can often make all the difference for people caught in this difficult situation – we can help to guide you past the pitfalls that can arise during a personal injury compensation claim, so that you can focus on the recovery process.

What To Do After Your Injury

If you or a loved one has sustained damages that were caused by someone else, you have the right to seek compensation for your personal injury. Damages for your injury including medical expenses, treatment, property damage, loss of wages, and pain and suffering can be awarded to you in a settlement or a lawsuit.

A reputable Connecticut attorney can assist you by gathering the evidence and investigating the cause of your injury, as well as negotiate with the insurance company and attorney for the person or company who harmed you. Personal injury victims need to be aware that there are is only a set amount of time that one can seek personal injury compensation after an injury has occurred.
