A person who falls down the stairs and breaks their leg or gets in an accident that leaves them with a permanent disability are examples of injuries deemed to be severe enough for people seeking compensation. Unfortunately, there is no exact definition of what defines “severe,” but it’s often left up to court cases like these two mentioned above. In the eyes of a personal injury lawyer, there are many different types of injures that could be considered severe. Some examples include brain injuries or paralysis due to an accident. Whether it is physical harm from another person like assault and battery or property damage such as motor vehicle accidents, these can all result in high costs for medical care and lost wages if they rendered you unable to work during recovery periods.
Severe personal injuries are often the result of car accidents, workplace injury or other traumatic events. These types of injures can have a profound impact on your life in many different ways–including mental and physical health issues as well as emotional trauma.
The term “severe personal injury” typically refers to an accident where someone suffers an emergency medical condition that causes permanent disability; death; loss-of-time from work exceeding three months; significant disfigurement/disfigurement requiring major surgical procedures such as depression, anxiety disorder, or posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD); severe burn wounds covering more than 20% body surface area with associated inhalation burns affecting respiratory tract function or upper airway obstruction by swelling lasting two weeks.
