San Francisco Severe Injury Lawyer

San Francisco Severe Injury Lawyer

If you have been injured by another person or company, it puts you in a very difficult position, but if the injuries you’ve suffered are severe, the matter is that much more challenging. If you are in this type of situation, reach out to an experienced San Francisco severe injury lawyer for the professional legal counsel you need. 

With Severe Injuries Come Serious Damages

If the injuries you’ve sustained are severe, you can expect your damages (or losses) to reflect this fact. Your damages will be unique to your situation, but they can be sorted into the following categories:

  • Your medical expenses, which can be ongoing and extensive
  • Your lost earnings which can include an altered career trajectory and losses in earning potential
  • Your pain and suffering, which is likely to mirror the severity of your economic damages

Severe Injuries

Some of the most common severe injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) – TBIs affect your brain, which makes them about as severe as an injury can be. Our brains equate with our sense of self, and even a minor alteration in your brain’s functioning can lead to devastating results.
  • Burns – A serious burn can be life-altering. These are some of the most painful injuries you can endure, and they are closely associated with dangerous infections that can be difficult to control. A burn can be permanently disfiguring, which can be particularly devastating if it is on your face or neck.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – Because spinal cord injuries damage your spine, they are closely associated with losses in your overall range of motion and with serious (even chronic) pain. If your spinal cord is severed, it means permanent paralysis and a lifetime of healthcare needs (in addition to the likelihood that you will require assistance with the activities of daily living). 
  • Broken Bones – When a break in a bone is complicated, it can make recovery exceptionally slow and can lead to serious physical challenges that include chronic pain and physical disability. 

Shared Fault

Many people who are injured by the negligence of others worry that they may have contributed to the accident in some way or that they may share fault in the matter. Your skilled personal injury lawyer will help you make this determination in your unique case – based on the evidence involved – but even if you do share fault for the accident that leaves you injured, it will not bar you from seeking compensation in California. If you are partially responsible, your compensation will be reduced by your percentage of responsibility, but this shared responsibility does not negate your claim.
