Injuries are generally unexpected and not something anyone would ask for. Injuries do occur though, and the trauma can leave lingering and even permanent results. These could be visible disfiguring scars, crooked spine or bone, paralysis and others. Head injuries can lead to coma, seizures and even death. Motor vehicle accidents can cause extensive internal injuries that might need surgery to remove body parts to stop the bleeding. A loss of a significant amount of the spleen can make the person susceptible to bleeding problems and other consequence. A person that injured only one kidney or just one portion of a lung can usually live fairly normal lives with some precautions.
After any injury, make an appointment to speak with a qualified attorney regarding your specific injury. There are legal laws to give injured parties the right to sue for compensation including medical bills, medications and supplies and physical therapy sessions among many others. Most states allow monetary awards for pain and suffering.
