Common Accidental Injuries

Injuries sustained depend on the type of accident; for instance, there may be a big difference between a motorcycle accident and a car accident. The damages can be more severe in a motorcycle accident since there are no airbags, seat belts, or road protection. 

It is not uncommon to witness accidents involving broken bones, major head and brain injuries, paralysis, and severe burns. Below are the common types of damages that may be incurred when a person is injured.

Physical injuries

Below is a list of some physical effects of a personal injury which may be easily assessed:

  • Arm and leg injuries
  • Blindness
  • Broken bones
  • Burns
  • Facial wounds/disfigurement
  • Internal wounds
  • Lost limbs
  • Severe cuts and lacerations
  • Soft-tissue injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Sprains
  • Strains
  • Traumatic brain damage
  • Whiplash

Pain and suffering 

Pain and suffering can also refer to the physical pain that you have endured because of an injury you experienced during the accident. Determining the amount of pain and suffering can be more complicated than medical expenses since there are no actual bills and receipts that can estimate the extent of pain and suffering you have been enduring. 

Our legal team will help review the different factors that determine pain and suffering compensation. These include treatment, medication, and the length of your recovery. 

Emotional damage 

Dealing with emotional stress can be more devastating than being involved in an accident. Emotional damage may include the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression 
  • Humiliation
  • Shock
  • Sorrow
  • Terror

When coping with these stressors, you may begin dealing with physical issues such as loss of appetite, weight loss, and ulcers. You may even notice that you have trouble socializing, losing interest in your everyday daily activities, and declining overall health. 

Emotional damage can be challenging to prove, just like pain and suffering. This takes a medical and psychological practitioner to confirm these damages have occurred, and the financial amount given depends on what can be proven from the emotional damage. 

Financial damage

Financial damage may be related to the medical expenses incurred after being treated after the accident. The economic impact is often felt by more than just the victim. Not only does the victim suffer financially, but the family could also suffer as well. 

While some accidents can be avoided, some result in death. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident at the expense of someone else’s negligence, contact an attorney at Hughes & Coleman today at 800-800-4600. We can help you file a claim so you can hold the at-fault party accountable.

Compensation for Paris, TN Personal Injuries

Personal injury law is the civil justice system that provides legal solutions for those who have been hurt due to another individual’s negligence. In an injury case, the simple solution is to provide financial compensation to which the plaintiff has endured because of the actions the defendant caused. 

In a lawsuit, the victim must prove that the responsible party’s negligence was the exact cause of the incident which incurred the damages. If the plaintiff can prove the defendant’s negligence, the defendant must then compensate the plaintiff for the amount of damages the jury deems fit by law. 

Compensation for this type of lawsuit may include:

  • Accommodations to the home or car (if disabled) 
  • Emotional distress
  • Funeral services (wrongful death cases)
  • Immediate medical bills – Including emergency services, doctor examinations, surgery, and treatment. 
  • Lessened earned wages (if disabled) 
  • Loss of consortium (wrongful death cases) 
  • Lost wages 
  • Mental anguish
  • Pain and suffering
  • Recurring medical bills – Including prescription medication, physical therapy, and medical equipment. 
  • Substitute services (if disabled)
  • Therapy, including family therapy

At Hughes & Coleman, our legal team works on a contingency fee basis. This means that you do not pay unless we recover compensation. Your initial consultation is free. We are here to work for you. Our law team understands that being hurt can take a toll on your life. That’s why we want to help you get your life back on track.

Do Not Let Insurance Companies Bully You

In most situations, an injury case will not go to trial. Instead, it could end in a settlement. Settlements are payments insurance companies offer to those who have been hurt on behalf of their insureds’ negligence. 

With that said, insurance companies typically have hidden motives for these payments. Insurance companies do not want to pay out much money. Instead, they will try to get the hurt individual to settle quickly, to avoid taking responsibility for any future injuries and medical expenses that may arise later. 

Insurance companies like to put pressure on hurt victims, but you do not need to fall into their traps. Instead of letting them take advantage of you, hire a well-experienced attorney who can stand up for you and who knows your rights. Let our law team speak up for you and be your advocate in your time of need. 

Contact an attorney today at Hughes & Coleman. We are not afraid to speak up for you against insurance companies, and we won’t let an insurance company take advantage of our clients.
