Even the smallest of accidents can result in injury – but in a majority of cases, these injuries are not serious enough to demand substantial medical care. Those that require more than home-care can typically be covered by insurance and, when necessary, a small claim can be filed against the responsible party to recover damages. However, when it comes to serious injury, you absolutely need an attorney on your side who is prepared to try your case before a jury in an effort to help you secure the full compensation you deserve.
What is Serious Injury?
Serious injury is an injury that will demand:
- Extended or ongoing medical care
- Physical, occupational, and other types of therapy
- Extended or permanent time away from work
- Changes to lifestyle or ability
Serious injury may also result in significant physical pain and emotional suffering.
When you sustain a serious injury, you may face expensive medical bills and an inability to pay them due to an inability to work. Insurance settlements in these cases will often fail to provide adequate compensation, but once you have accepted a settlement, you waive your right to seek justice through other means. This makes it very important that, before you accept any offer from an insurance company, you speak with one of the Baltimore serious injury attorneys at Cohen & Dwin.
Examples of Serious Injury
Any injury that causes long-term or permanent changes in comfort and ability is a serious injury. The attorneys at our several Maryland offices have successfully handled cases revolving around catastrophic injuries including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Burn injury
These types of injury often require months or years of rehabilitation and therapy. They may demand adaptive technology, prosthetics, home modifications, round-the-clock care and assistance, and unbelievable amounts of patience and perseverance – despite which full recovery, in many cases, will be impossible. You deserve compensation for all of these things, but you need an attorney on your side to make sure that happens.
