When Serious Injuries Lead to Surgery in A Personal Injury Case
March 12, 2023
There are countless types of serious injuries that can be sustained from motor vehicle collisions, defective products, slip and falls and other accidents. Proper treatment may involve costly multiple surgeries and ongoing medical care. Our experienced personal injury attorneys at Gold, Albanese & Barletti, LLC have handled thousands of personal injury cases and have successfully helped clients get the compensation they deserve for their medical bills, lost wages and other damages.
Types of Injuries that May Require Multiple Surgeries
Serious injuries that require multiple surgeries, hospital stays and extended medical treatment often come with very high physical, emotional and financial costs. Some injuries that typically require at least more than one surgical procedure include:
Knee injuries are one of the most common types of injuries sustained in motor vehicle and slip and fall accidents. The knee is a complex joint and can be damaged in multiple ways; from cracked kneecaps to a torn ACL to traumatic injuries that require full knee replacement surgery. Not only do severe knee injuries often necessitate multiple surgeries, they may involve months of painful physical therapy, which can end up costing tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
Serious spinal cord injuries are also a common occurrence in motor vehicle crashes and other types of accidents. Victims may suffer from cracked or damaged vertebrae, herniated discs, whiplash and even paralysis which can all require surgical treatment. In some cases, emergency surgery is vital to prevent paralysis, and a victim may face months of painful and costly surgeries and therapy once he or she is stabilized.
Head Trauma and Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can range from mild concussion to severe damage or fluid on the brain that requires immediate medical attention and surgery. The effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in devastating lifelong physical, mental and emotional disabilities and other medical conditions that require complex surgeries and treatment whose cost can reach into the millions of dollars.
Severely broken or shattered bones frequently require painful multiple surgeries that involve extended periods of recovery time and ongoing physical therapy. These types of serious injuries can permanently affect a victim’s overall physical health, mobility and ability to work.
Scarring and Disfigurement
Trauma such as severe cuts, abrasions, punctures and burns can result in permanent scarring, disfigurement, and other serious medical problems. Severe injuries may require multiple plastic surgeries and/or laser treatments; and can have lasting, devastating physical and psychological effects.
