Compassionate Personal Injury Lawyers Assisting Clients with Physical & Psychological Injuries from a Variety of Accidents
When people think about the injuries that can result from an accident, the first things that come to mind are physical injuries, such as:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI);
- Fractures & Broken Bones;
- Spinal Cord Injuries & Paralysis;
- Whiplash & Soft Tissue Injury;
- Wrongful Death;
- Migraines or Chronic Headaches;
- Chronic Pain;
- Blurred Vision;
- Nerve Damage; and
- Internal Bleeding.
If you have sustained any of the injuries listed above, you should seek immediate medical attention. If the paramedics are at the scene, let them assess your injuries and if need be, go to the emergency room or your family doctor as soon as possible. Once you have seen to your injuries, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer to find out what benefits may be available to you to aid in your recovery. At Tierney Stauffer LLP, an experienced personal injury lawyer will meet with you as soon as possible to get an understanding of your case and will work with you to achieve the best possible settlement of your claim.
Although physical injuries are usually immediately apparent, many physical injuries heal over time. Accidents can cause psychological or emotional injuries as well, and these are often not easily noticeable. Some of the more common psychological injuries include:
- Driver or Passenger Anxiety;
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder;
- Dizziness; and
- Difficulty concentrating.
If you or someone you care about has experienced any of these symptoms following an accident, you should let your doctor know. You may be able to obtain counselling, treatment or medication to help you recover from your psychological or emotional injuries. You should also seek the advice of a skilled personal injury lawyer who can help you protect your rights and obtain the maximum possible settlement so that you can get the treatment you need and move on with your life.
