Damages – Part 6: Temporary or Permanent Injuries

Temporary or Permanent Injuries

If you are involved in a car accident where you suffer a personal injury, you will most likely have to deal with short term or long-term injuries and symptoms. Whether that is a neck strain from a rear-end car accident, or more severe injuries from a head-on collision or being t-boned, injuries from a car accident may be permanent. Most Medical Experts will tell you that temporary injuries are more common in car accidents, but permanent injuries can cost someone their livelihood and forever change the way they live their life.

What if I Have a Temporary Injury?

Temporary injuries such as a neck or back strain can often limit your ability to perform your job or live your life the way you did before the accident. Whether you have back pain, neck pain, or some other temporary injury, this can affect the things you do on a day-to-day basis, the ability to perform your job, or your financial well-being. These injuries can often be resolved by doctors’ visits and physical therapy sessions. However, these trips to the doctor and physical therapy sessions can cause missed time from your job, family and friends.  Even temporary injuries can leave impact your life! Before the injury gets, you may also not be able to live a fulfilling life due to pain. Some of our clients even have problems with driving or riding in a car for a while after a car crash because they fear getting into another car collision.

If you have lost wages due to missed time at work or have suffered physically or mentally after an injury that has limited your enjoyment of life, you are entitled to compensation. The compensation will vary based on the severity of the injury, how much time you missed from work, and the activities you could not do while you were recovering. By showing that you suffered physically and mentally and missed time from work, you will be entitled to recover damages due to your temporary injury.

What if I Have a Permanent Injury?

Permanent injuries are not as common but can impact a person’s life in many more ways. A person in a car accident who suffered a permanent injury can lose their enjoyment of life for the rest of their life.  They will have to live out the rest of their days in pain and agony, dealing with a constant reminder of that day they were in that horrible car accident. They may not be able to do things they enjoyed doing before the accident like playing with their kids or hobbies.  It can also impact their lifestyle like not being able to work out or exercise which can also lead to a decline in health. Depending on the line of work they are in and the type of injury they sustained, they may not be able to work for the rest of their life in that field.

A person who sustains a severe permanent injury may require a caretaker for the rest of their life. They may require constant doctor visits or procedures to make sure they can live somewhat comfortably. This may entitle someone to significant compensation. An expert may have to review the injuries to determine what is required, but a severe permanent injury is something that requires a lot of money to deal with. If you or a loved one suffer a severe permanent injury in a car accident, you may be entitled to valuable compensation for your injury or injuries.
