Different Types of Personal Injury

Personal injury cases can take form in many different ways and for different reasons. The following list details some of the injuries you may have encountered and your legal options.

Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries can result from medical negligence, work accidents, or physical abuse, but the most common forms of brain injuries are the result of car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Usually, brain injuries result from a blow to the head that causes a skull fracture, bleeding, or swelling of the brain. Trauma to the brain can impact one’s speech, recognition, senses, cognition, coordination, behavior, and memory. To read more about brain injuries, click here

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries are likely the most painful injury a person can sustain. not only is the injury itself physically and emotionally painful, but the recovery process is often lengthy and painful. It is not uncommon for burn victims to undergo multiple surgeries and skin grafts during their recovery process, each of which is painful and leaves the burn victim prone to life-threatening infections and a lifetime of serious health care challenges.

Birth Injuries

The birth of a child is one of life’s greatest moments. When that moment is compromised by the negligent conduct of a physician, hospital, or other medical provider, the toll it takes is enormous. Birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and shoulder dystocia have a devastating effect on a child and a family. Moreover, taking care of a child that has been compromised by a birth injury presents unique emotional and financial challenges. To read more about birth injuries, click here

Spinal Cord Injuries

Life can change in an instant for victims of spinal cord injuries. There are approximately 11,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries every year in the United States. These injuries range from

quadriplegia, paraplegia, and other paralysis. Consequences also include loss of sexual function, loss of bladder and bowel control, and increased risk for infection and other illnesses. To read more about spinal cord injuries, click here

Pedestrian Accidents

Nearly 78,000 pedestrians are seriously injured every year when they are hit by a truck or car. Thousands more are injured in falls or other incidents involved on the premises of others. These injuries range from minor scrapes to broken bones to paralysis and even death. To read more about pedestrian accidents, click here

Construction Accidents

Construction sites, by their very nature, are dangerous. Employers are required to provide the safest site possible for their workers, which includes safe equipment and proper training. Accidents that occur on construction sites that are the result of an employer’s failure to provide adequate safety measures can be serious and devastating to the injured person. Likewise, lack of proper training can lead to serious accidents or even death. To read more about construction site accidents, click here

Injuries To Minors And Children

Children are often more prone to suffer injury than adults. The serious injury or death of a child is a horror no parent ever wants to experience. However, when the unthinkable occurs as a result of the negligence of another, parents or legal guardians deserve to know their legal rights and remedies.

How The Terry Law Firm Can Help You With A Missouri Nursing Home Case

The Terry Law Firm has been handling cases against the nursing home industry since 2001. In that time we have learned that nursing home cases are much more than what happened to a resident. It is just as important to understand Why something happened. We have learned that financial decisions made by nursing home companies are often at the heart of why nursing home residents suffer abuse and neglect. When we represent families and victims of abuse and neglect, we use our medical knowledge and financial understanding of the nursing home industry to uncover what happened and why it happened.

David Terry also has the personal experience of having had a family member in a nursing home. He understands the anguish of placing a loved one in a nursing home and the frustration people have when dealing with nursing homes. His personal experience has given him compassion for those experiencing those emotions and a passion for pursuing justice for those who suffer serious injuries and death because of abuse and neglect.
