Types of Personal Injuries
When to Consult Our Georgia Personal Injury Attorneys
If you or a loved one suffers an injury caused by the negligence of another individual, it is likely that you are considering consulting with an attorney about filing a personal injury claim. Depending on the details of how your injury occurred, your lawyer may recommend that you pursue a case.
The Georgia attorneys of Henry Spiegel Milling LLP can help you seek compensation for any of the following types of injuries that often occur in accidents:
Neck injuries include whiplash, disc sprains, disc ruptures, or disc slips and are most often caused by impact, such as in automobile accidents. In particular, if your vehicle is struck sharply in the rear, it could cause your neck to snap forward and immediately backward, resulting in whiplash.
Back injuries include fractured discs or vertebrae, disc bulges or herniations, and muscle, nerve, or ligament tears or strains that also occur in motor vehicle accidents. Additionally, serious falls and other impact accidents can cause a spinal injury—compression or tearing of the spinal cord—that results in more severe effects such as partial or full paralysis.
Head injuries can range from minor and cosmetic—such as cuts, scrapes, bumps, and bruises—to severe brain injuries. These include concussions, memory loss, seizures, vertigo, skull fractures, hematomas, nerve damage, and other traumatic brain injuries (TBI) that can lead to lifelong physical and mental disability.
Internal injuries to organs and bones—including broken ribs, torn spleens, or damage to the bowels, kidneys, liver, lungs, or heart—can result from severe impact accidents or any wounds that break the skin. These types of injuries most often require surgery to repair.
Medication injuries can occur as a result of improper prescription or administration of a drug. This may be because of doctor negligence or medical malpractice. In addition, Tylenol and other acetaminophen drugs have been linked to liver failure when used improperly due to insufficient warning and direction labels.
