Here are the main types of injuries that a Kirkland Lake personal injury lawyer can help you claim for.

Spinal Cord Injury

An abrupt impact or cut to the spine can cause a traumatic spinal cord injury. Below the damage site, a spinal cord injury frequently results in irreversible loss of strength, feeling, and function. Drugs to relieve symptoms and surgery to stabilize the spine are among the options for treatment.  Many patients with spinal cord injuries can live productive, independent lives thanks to rehabilitation and assistive technology.

Work-Related Injury

An injury or disease caused, contributed to, or severely worsened by events or exposures in the workplace is referred to as a work-related injury. In the workplace, work-related injuries arise due to the responsibilities assigned to the individual employee by their employer.  

Brain Injury

An external force, generally a severe knock to the head, can cause brain injury. A serious sports injury or a vehicle collision are common causes of traumatic brain damage. Confusion, hazy vision, and trouble concentrating are some of the immediate or delayed symptoms. Infants may cry a lot or become fussy. Rest, medicine, and surgery may all be used to treat the condition.   

Birth Injury

Any sort of damage to a newborn during or shortly after birth is referred to as a birth injury. This can include birth hypoxia (lack of oxygen), birth trauma (extreme pressure on the baby’s head or body), infection, and other problems.     

Catastrophic Injury

A catastrophic injury has immediate and long-term repercussions that prevent an individual from working for a living. In layman’s words, a catastrophic injury is so severe that the sufferer suffers lifelong harm because of it. Catastrophic injuries are typically the consequence of physical damage to the brain or spinal cord, which can have a significantly short- and long-term impact on a person’s functional skills.   

Chronic Injury

Chronic injuries, often known as overuse injuries, are medical conditions that develop gradually and persist over a long period. They can cause a lifetime of pain, inflammation, and discomfort if they aren’t treated right away. 

 

Most injuries sustained in a vehicle accident or slipping and falling on an icy sidewalk heal over time, allowing the wounded individual to return to most, if not all, of their typical activities. Accident victims suffering from chronic pain long after the usual healing process should have concluded are not in this situation. 

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death claims can be filed in the event of a death caused by someone else’s negligence. Wrongful death lawsuits are frequently predicated on death caused by another person’s negligence, such as a car accident caused by another driver, a dangerous roadway or defective vehicle, or medical malpractice. Deaths caused in whole or in part by the road condition are the subject of hazardous roadway claims.
