Orange County Injury Lawyer
In addition to threatening your physical wellbeing, an injury can put your financial stability at risk. To receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and other financial hardships, reach out to an Orange County injury attorney.
Being injured in an accident is bound to ruin your day, but it can also negatively affect your life in the long term. If someone else is to blame, you deserve compensation for the ways in which your injuries have changed your life.
You shouldn’t have to suffer both physically and financially because of someone else’s negligence. And you don’t have to. An Orange County injury lawyer with Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you get the compensation you need to recover.
How Badly Were You Hurt?
Meeting with a lawyer about your accident is not the time to try to be tough. Even a minor injury like a wrist sprain can have negative impacts or become worse over time. You should receive compensation for all of your injuries.
Naturally, the more severe your injuries are, the more compensation you stand to receive. If your doctor doesn’t think you will recover within a year, and you cannot work because of your injury, you could be considered disabled and request long-term wage compensation.
Your attorney will review your medical records and other evidence related to your accident to demonstrate the severity of your injuries and why you should be compensated.
Has Your Brain Been Injured?
Many people don’t even realize they’re suffering from a brain injury after an accident. During the chaos of an accident, it’s easy to focus on other injuries. Unless there are visible signs of a head injury, it’s likely to go undiagnosed and untreated.
But a brain injury can affect you for the rest of your life. If you notice any of the following symptoms after your accident, see a doctor because you might have a brain injury:
- Blurred vision
- Memory loss
- Mood swings or depression
- Inability to complete normal tasks
If you suffered a brain injury due to someone else’s negligence, an Orange County injury attorney in our office can help you receive compensation for the ways your life has been affected.
You could receive compensation for the following damages:
- Caregivers to help you complete daily tasks
- Someone to drive you
- Wage losses
- Hospital bills
Spine Injuries Make Life Difficult
Even minor spine injuries like whiplash can make it difficult to move around or keep up with daily life. Severe headaches and muscle pain can restrict movement as well. Those who are unfortunate enough to have a broken spine may also suffer paralysis. Regardless of where you fall on this spectrum, you can sue for compensation if your spine injury was someone else’s fault.
Those who have suffered paralysis are likely to receive compensation for the following expenses:
- Permanent caregivers
- Retrofitting a home to accommodate your disability
- A vehicle that can accommodate a wheelchair
- Long-term wage losses
- Pain and suffering
- Medical bills and rehabilitation
Coming Back from Broken Bones
Broken bones can be challenging to recover from. While they do heal, the process can take months or even a year, depending on how badly the bone was fractured.
In some cases, surgery and physical therapy are necessary. This can mean more than a year of medical bills and physical therapy expenses, in addition to time away from work.
Broken bones can sometimes warrant lengthy hospital stays, which can create an enormous financial burden. Your Orange County bone injury lawyer will be sure to name all the expenses related to your bone fracture in your claim.
Suffering Severe Burns
Being burned is traumatic but also complicated. The insurance company is likely to cover your medical expenses until you have physically recovered. But insurers are often reluctant to pay for reconstructive surgery after the fact.
Instead of being forced to live with disfigurement or pay for the surgery out of pocket, let an Orange County accident injury lawyer negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
