What is a Serious Accident Injury?

Injuries sustained in car accidents can be devastating and even life-altering. This is especially true when injuries are serious and require medical treatment, rehabilitation or ongoing care. While the severity of your injuries will determine whether you are entitled to compensation for them, there are some general guidelines that will help you understand what’s considered a serious accident injury.

There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to what is considered a serious injury in an accident. The severity of your injuries will determine whether or not you qualify for compensation. If you were hurt in an accident, it’s best to consult with an attorney who can help you file your personal injury claim.

There are many kinds of injuries that will qualify as serious, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), broken bones and whiplash.

TBIs can be life-altering, in terms of the effects on your cognitive abilities and your ability to function in society. Broken bones may not sound like much, but they can be painful and affect your mobility. Whiplash is a type of soft tissue injury that causes long-term pain in the neck, shoulders and back.

After an accident, consult an attorney about your case to learn if you might qualify for compensation for your injuries. You’ll want to choose a lawyer who has experience with personal injury cases and who represents clients in similar situations.

If you’ve been in an accident, it’s important to know what constitutes a serious injury. If you have sustained any of the types of injuries that are considered serious by law, then your case may be worth pursuing.
