What Constitutes Personal Injury?
In legal terms, personal injury is defined as any injury to a person for which someone else is liable. Victims of personal injury may be entitled to compensation for physical, emotional, and mental damages, depending on the circumstances of the case. At the Law Offices of Richard Troutman in the Orlando area, our personal injury lawyers frequently handle cases involving all types of serious, catastrophic personal injuries.
Brain Injury Cases
If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, our lawyers in the Orlando area may be able to help you obtain compensation from those responsible for the injury. Most brain injuries are long-term and result in substantial financial and emotional hardships for both the victim and the victim’s family. In severe cases, an impact to the head can result in permanent mental problems, physical disability, and even death. If you or someone you love has suffered a brain injury in an automobile accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall accident, or any other type of accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our brain injury lawyers in Orlando can help you obtain the recovery to which you are entitled. Please contact the Law Offices of Richard Troutman today for an evaluation of your case.
Spinal Cord Injury Cases
Among the most devastating of all personal injuries, spinal cord injuries are almost always permanent and their effects cannot be cured. The most common cause of spinal cord injury in the United States is automobile accidents, many of which were not the fault of the injured victim. Other common causes include motorcycle accidents, acts of violence, work-related accidents, and sports injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, our lawyers in the Orlando area may be able to help you obtain compensation from those at fault for the injury.
The spinal cord is essentially a band of nerves that conducts messages between the brain and the body. The effects of the spinal cord injury depend on the location and severity of the damage, with the most severe effects involving injuries to the top of the spinal cord. In the most severe cases, the victim can permanently lose feeling and the ability to make voluntary movements at and below the point of the injury. Even those who retain partial feeling or movement face the possibility of permanently impaired bodily functions. Despite advances in treatment and rehabilitation services, it is currently impossible to repair damaged nerves, leaving spinal cord injury victims with no options for substantial recovery.
Spinal cord injury victims and their families face tremendous financial and emotional burdens, burdens that our lawyers feel should be shared by those responsible for the injury. If you or someone you love is in need of experienced spinal cord injury lawyers in the Orlando area, please contact the Law Offices of Richard Troutman today for an evaluation of your case.
Back Injury Cases
In addition to spinal cord injuries, other serious back injuries that can result from accidents include torn back muscles, slipped or herniated discs, strained or torn ligaments, and bone fractures. Severe back injuries can result in excruciating pain, extreme financial hardships, and permanent disability. Even less severe back injuries can lead to extended time off work and substantial medical expenses, in addition to pain, suffering, and mental anguish. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious back injury in an accident that was someone else’s fault, you may be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering, lost wages, medical bills, mental anguish, and other damages. Although back injury cases are frequently complex and difficult, our Orlando area personal injury lawyers will work with medical experts to build the strongest case possible on your behalf. Contact the Law Offices of Richard Troutman today for more information about how we can help you receive the justice you deserve.
Neck Injury Cases
In serious accidents, the neck is particularly vulnerable to injury. Neck injuries are particularly difficult to evaluate because they do not always produce immediate symptoms. Many injured victims are not aware of the severity of their neck injuries until well after an accident, when they are confronted by persistent pain, headaches, and stiffness that require medical attention. For example, a victim who suffers whiplash, a common injury that results from the overextension of the neck during an automobile, motorcycle, or other jarring accident, may feel no pain or discomfort at first. This does not mean, however, that the injury is minor.
Like back injuries, neck injuries can range in severity depending on the nature of the damage. Even relatively minor damage can result in considerable pain and reduced mobility, while damage to the nerves can lead to permanent disability or death. Whatever the extent of the damage, neck injuries are generally painful, expensive, and emotionally draining for both the victim and the victim’s family. If you or someone you love has sustained a neck injury due to someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions, please contact the Law Offices of Richard Troutman today.
