Some injuries are more serious than others. A minor car accident or a fall from a low height can cause a small fracture or bruising. A high-speed collision or a fall from the top of a staircase can cause the victim to suffer far more serious injuries, like multiple broken bones, head trauma, deep cuts, and soft tissue injuries that take months to heal.
Any time a victim is injured because of another party’s negligence, the victim has the right to seek compensation for his or her damages through a personal injury claim. A personal injury claim can cover the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering damages. A serious injury can lead to significant damages in all three of these categories.
Examples of Serious Injury Accidents
Any type of accident can cause a serious injury. Serious injuries are defined as the injuries that cause permanent disfigurement or disability. Examples of these injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe burns
- Organ damage
- Trauma to the face that alters the victim’s appearance
- Any injury that forces the victim to have a limb or extremity amputated or renders a limb or extremity unusable
The circumstances of an accident are often what determines the injuries a victim suffers. Other factors include the victim’s age and fitness level, among many others.
Seeking Compensation for Your Serious Injury Damages
A serious injury can severely impact a victim’s ability to work, sometimes rendering him or her unable of working ever again. When this is the case, the victim can seek compensation not just for his or her current lost wages, but for his or her projected lost earnings due to the permanent disability.
He or she can also pursue compensation for extensive pain and suffering damages, which could include:
- The cost of modifying his or her home to accommodate his or her disability, such as adding a wheelchair ramp
- The victim’s psychological trauma and the costs of professional mental healthcare
- Compensation for the loss of quality of life the victim suffered due to chronic pain, an inability to enjoy the activities he or she once enjoyed, and the victim’s shortened lifespan
- The cost of hiring in-home help to aid the disabled victim with household chores
When a victim seeks compensation for medical expenses, he or she can recover compensation for all hospitalization, medication and therapies needed to treat the injury.

Serious injury accidents have an enormous impact on the affected party. By serious injuries, we’re referring to injuries as severe as permanent disfigurement or disablement. Serious injuries also refer to injuries that require long-term medical assistance, or those injuries that cause permanent pain or distress. Common injuries include shoulder injuries, spinal cord injuries, various kinds of brain damage, broken bones and much more.

If you have been seriously harmed through the improper conduct of another person, you may be entitled to compensation. When we talk about harm, we refer to both physical and; often the latter proving to be more enduring in the months and years following a serious incident. Not only does the affected party must live with physical and/or psychological injury, but also the loss of income that this invariably entails. Serious injury accidents are, then, often the source of substantial compensation. Our personal injury attorneys can help evaluate what damages you’re entitled to – both economic and noneconomic damages.
The cause of serious injury accidents is manifold. If your injury was caused by a third-party, whether through intent, recklessness or negligence, we can help determine responsibility and carve out a legal path toward settlement. And nor does settlement refer to attending court. Invariably, most cases are negotiated and settled out of court. Our serious injury lawyers work with you, from our initial free consultation right through to settlement, keeping you informed each step of the way. Our Orange County attorneys work in a diligent, methodical way; shaping our knowledge and experience in your favor.
That being said, we understand that recovering damages is only one part of the process. In many cases, it cannot recover the quality of life that one hitherto enjoyed. Nonetheless, recovering damages can go some way toward getting back to some degree of normalcy. At Nehora Law Firm, we understand and appreciate the difficult and often emotionally challenging nature of many of these cases. Our team work tirelessly to help you recover the economic (for example, loss of income) and noneconomic (quality of life) damages that you have suffered; maximizing your potential compensation.

While serious injury accidents are, in many cases, life-changing experiences – they do not have to be a source of permanent economic stress. Recovering compensation can alleviate many of the economic burdens that invariably come with serious injury.
