Many Personal Injuries Require Surgery

Indianapolis Accident Injury Attorney

It’s the scenario that we are all too familiar with. You’re driving down the highway and see the flash of lights on the side of the road. Driving past you see several cars that have been in an accident. With over 253 million cars and trucks on the road in the United States, accidents are bound to happen. When you are the victim of an accident that results in an injury, the aftermath can be devastating. Lost wages, time off work to recover, and inability to perform your regular physical and social activities can leave you feeling isolated and alone. When the injury you have experienced requires surgery, the recovery time can extend for months. Many of the common types of injuries that require surgery include:


Knee Injuries
– One of the most common forms of injury is a tear or strain in the ligament of the knee. Knee surgery can be relatively straightforward, or it can be a bit more complicated depending on the extent of the damage. Regardless, the recovery time from this type of injury is using quite lengthy. Most knee surgeries will require extensive physical therapy as a part of the recovery process.

Broken Bones – When you’re involved in a major accident, the result is sometimes broken or fractured bones. In many cases, this type of injury will require surgery to set the bone back into the correct place.

Neck and Back Injuries – Any injury to the neck or back is especially scary since this is closely related to the spinal column. In a car accident, Neck & Back Injury is a common occurrence. In serious cases, this can cause herniated discs in the neck, back, and spinal column. This is one of the most serious types of damage you can experience, and when surgery is required, the recovery time can take months or even years to regain normalcy.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) – The brain is essential to controlling all bodily functions and communications, which is why a TBI is incredibly dangerous. In a serious accident in which you experience a concussion or other form of major injury, brain surgery might be required to fix the damage. When a traumatic brain injury requires surgery, the recovery time is typically extensive. Extended hospital stays, advanced physical and cognitive therapy, and medical supervision is all expected when it comes to treating a TBI.
