Causes of Bodily Injuries
Bodily injury claims are part of personal injury lawsuits, and can stem from a variety of different circumstances. Serious, or even catastrophic bodily injuries can be caused by:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Dog bites
- Defective products
- Construction site and industrial accidents
- Scaffolding and ladder fall accidents
These serious incidents can cause grievous injuries to the victim, including:
- Broken bones
- Torn ligaments
- Catastrophic injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Wrongful death
Bodily injuries can have devastating consequences for the victim, including paralysis, physical limitations, reduced capability to work, or mental incapacitation. In the tragic event of wrongful death, the dependents of the deceased have to face the traumatic aftermath of the untimely death of a loved one. In the case the victim is the sole source of income for their family, the dependents are left without any financial stability, in addition to dealing with the loss of love and support of their spouse, parent, or child.
Steps to Take After a Bodily Injury Accident
If you have been involved in an accident that has caused bodily injuries, the liable party may be your employer, a product manufacturer, a drunk or reckless driver, or the manager or supervisor of a construction site. Before you can begin seeking compensation, you must protect yourself and your health. The most important step to undergo after an accident is to receive a thorough medical examination to ascertain the true extent of your injuries. Sometimes an internal injury may not become immediately apparent, and the victim should be wary of accepting any settlements from insurance companies before speaking to a knowledgeable bodily injury attorney.
