Type of Injuries


Losing a limb by amputation is a traumatic experience. Amputation victims can be left with expensive medical bills, potential ongoing surgical procedures, pain and suffering, and lifelong disabilities.

Many amputations also have serious complications, such as infection and pain. Some might need future surgeries to repair injuries to the stump. All of this future care is expensive, and the person to blame for your amputation should have to shoulder the costs.


A concussion is often caused by an impact or violent jolt to the head. Even a strong jolt to the body can cause the head to whip back and forth or side to side, and this shaking motion can lead to brain injury.

A concussion is a relatively mild traumatic brain injury. It is a misconception that something needs to penetrate the skull to cause injury. Instead, the shaking motion itself tends to disrupt the normal functioning of the brain.

Broken Bone

Some people wrongly believe that broken bones are minor. It is true, that some might heal easily on their own, but fractures carry many complications.

A broken bone can be debilitating and may require surgery or extensive rehabilitation. It can also lead to long-term discomfort or loss of mobility, especially when the bones do not heal properly. This type of malunion can require re-breaking the bone and setting it properly.


Fusion is a medical procedure that involves permanently joining vertebrae in the neck or back using a bone graft. Rods and screws are used to support the vertebrae, much like an “internal cast,” until fusion occurs.

Some accident victims need fusion after suffering injury to their spinal column. For example, one or more vertebrae could fracture, and fusion could bring some relief. Other victims might need fusion if they suffer from a narrowing of the spinal column, a condition called spinal stenosis. Though stenosis happens naturally in many people, especially as they age, an accident could accelerate the process.

Herniated Disc

Many back injuries are disabling. When the round cushion that sits between two vertebrae is damaged and puts intense strain on the spinal cord and nerve roots, a herniated disc occurs and causes severe pain to radiate throughout the body. Many people suffer a herniated disc in a car accident or in a fall.

This injury can be difficult to diagnose after an accident, but it can potentially require costly and ongoing medical procedures. Some people require surgery in order to find relief from the pain, while others could profit from more conservative treatment, such as steroid injections to deal with inflammation.

Knee Injury

The knee is very complicated. It is also vital to a person’s mobility and ability to live a normal life. When the knee is injured, many of our clients are immobilized.

Bones, cartilage, tendons, muscles, and ligaments all join at the knee. Any torn or stretched soft tissue can lead to instability and excruciating pain. The kneecap or other bones could also break, which can require medical intervention to keep everything in place.


Paralysis, or the loss of voluntary movement in parts of the body, is life changing for both the victim and his or her family. In addition to the physical and emotional suffering, paralysis can require significant medical and rehabilitation costs.

According to a study by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, a person who is paralyzed in their legs will incur around $519,000 in medical expenses in their first year. After that, they incur about $69,000 in medical expenses each year. The costs are much higher if someone is paralyzed in all four limbs.

Spinal Cord

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), an estimated 12,000 new cases of spinal cord injury occur each year. The primary cause of these injuries is motor vehicle accidents, including car, truck, and motorcycles.

The spinal cord acts as a conduit for neural signals from the brain to the rest of the body. When the spinal cord is torn, nicked, stretched, or bruised, then the ability to transmit signals is disrupted. When the spinal cord is cut in two, then no signals will pass.

Torn Tendon

Tendons connect muscles to bones and can be found around the body. When a tendon is torn, it can often result in an extended period of pain or sometimes even permanent pain and suffering. In many cases, expensive surgical procedures and rehabilitation are necessary to heal the tendon.

Minor tears and stretches might respond well to rest, ice, compression, and elevation—the so-called RICE treatment. But more serious tendon injuries can leave a person laid up in bed for months as they await adequate healing.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is the result of a blow or violent jolt to the head. While this life-altering injury can have symptoms such as loss of consciousness, seizures, subdural hematomas, amnesia, skull fractures, dizziness, sensory loss, depression, and tinnitus, milder forms of TBI can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. A person does not have to lose consciousness to suffer a traumatic brain injury, though many victims do.

TBI victims often will incur significant medical expenses and may require ongoing rehabilitation and care, in addition to lost past and future wages. Some people with serious TBIs are rendered in a vegetative state. Others can slowly climb their way back to a normal life with massive amounts of rehabilitation. Some patients benefit from speech, behavioral, and physical therapy.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence or misdeeds of others, whether an individual, corporation or other entity. Wrongful death cases provide an important way for surviving family members to hold the person responsible for their loved one’s death legally accountable.

Oddly, Virginia law did not always allow wrongful death lawsuits. If a victim was struck and killed in a car accident, the lawsuit died with the victim. Now, family members can seek compensation for a variety of losses, such as the loss of companionship and lost future income. They can also receive money to cover the cost of funeral and burial.
