Serious personal injuries can be absolutely devastating—and we don’t talk about that enough when we talk about personal injury cases.
Most people think of personal injury as relatively minor, but that could not be farther from the truth. In reality, the effects of a personal injury accident, such as a car crash or a slip and fall, can be wide-reaching, long-lasting, and life-altering.
Personal injury can rob survivors of many essential things. Often, these are things that uninjured people take for granted in their everyday lives. For example, getting injured can rob you of your mobility, or your ability to get up and go about your day pain-free. They can rob you of your independence, your ability to work, and your overall health and wellbeing. They can even rob you of your ability to fully enjoy the people and things you love most in the world.
In addition, personal injuries often require the survivor to go through an all-consuming recovery process, which can be incredibly physically, emotionally, and mentally taxing. This can include extensive medical treatment, such as extended hospital stays, surgeries, procedures, and long regimens of physical therapy and medication.
