Did You Need Surgery After a Traffic Accident?

Car Accident Surgery Attorney Indianapolis

In some cases, injuries sustained in a traffic accident are more than just minor scrapes and bruises and can require substantially more serious medical treatments. If you suffered an injury in an automobile accident that requires surgery, however, you won’t just pay the surgeon. You also will pay the hospital, the anesthesiologist, the pharmacy, the diagnostic testing provider, the physical therapist, and likely other medical service providers. Depending on the length of your hospital stay, there will be a number of additional expenses. You probably will also suffer lost wages if you are unable to work for a certain period of time while you recover. You might also face the cost of property damages to your vehicle. You also may experience pain and emotional suffering. All of these are eligible for compensation.

Injuries suffered in automobile accidents that commonly require surgery include:

Neck injuries: Neck & Back Injury is typically the most common type of neck injury in an automobile accident. This type of injury does not require surgery. However, more serious neck injuries, including disc herniations, can require physical therapy or even surgery.

Leg and knee injuries: Knees are at high risk of tearing and dislocation in automobile accidents. Ankles and feet can also suffer injuries that require surgery.

Broken bones: Broken bones might require surgery and hospitalization depending upon the bone and the severity of the break. Compound fractures, where the broken bone comes through the skin, almost always require surgery.

Back injuries: Back injuries can be quite severe, leading to chronic pain and even loss of mobility. Surgery often is necessary for such injuries.

Traumatic brain injuries: Traumatic brain injuries and severe contusions might require surgery to alleviate any serious bleeding or pressure that appears on the brain after the accident.

Internal Injuries: Serious internal injuries are common in automobile accidents, including internal bleeding, crushed lungs, and punctured organs. The severity of internal injuries can be difficult to determine. Surgery may range from minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery to operations that require many hours. Severe injuries can require multiple surgeries to repair.

After your automobile accident, the initial surgery often is only the beginning. You might require further surgeries and medical care. Often it is difficult to determine what future care you will need. Anticipating additional medical costs can be stressful and detrimental to mental health and healing. Because of this uncertainty about ongoing costs, you should always obtain good legal advice to determine your best options in such situations.
