Any injury or accident could potentially affect the quality of the rest of your life. If you suffer a severe or catastrophic injury in a traffic accident, a construction accident, or a fall, you may be left unable to work, provide for your loved ones, or even care for yourself. The impact of your injuries could, in fact, last for as long as you live, even if you are able to heal fully and make a complete recovery.
At Fotopoulos Law Office, we know that catastrophic and serious injuries can have long-lasting effects on not just you but on your family as well. If you or a family member has been severely injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, we have the experience, resources, and knowledge to help you secure the financial compensation you need to start moving forward again. While money cannot undo your injury, just compensation can allow your family to get back to normal again.Trusted Oak Forest Injury Lawyer
In most personal injury matters, the injuries heal eventually, and victims are usually able to get back to the lives they knew before the accident. Sometimes, there may be pain or residual effects of the injury for a number of years, but such issues may be manageable. Things are much different, however, in cases involving more severe injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Head, neck, and spine injuries;
- Multiple or compound fractures;
- Shattered bones or joints;
- Injuries that sever limbs or require amputation;
- Chemical or thermal burns; and
- Injuries to the face or eyes.
In addition to physical injuries, mental and emotional injuries could also have a serious negative impact on the victim’s life. It is not uncommon for injured victims to experience major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other psychological issues related to their accidents.Building the Best Possible Case in Joliet
