Often times, an incident can result in severe personal injury. Severe personal injury encompasses that category of injuries less catastrophic than quadriplegia, paraplegia, traumatic brain injury, amputation, or death, but are still severe enough to have a significant effect on the victim’s life- medically, economically, and personally.
Such injuries include severe neck or back injuries, extremity fractures, internal organ injuries, amongst many others.
Victims of severe personal injuries often suffer a loss of ability to earn money, will need significant future medical care and will experience significant loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life.
Severe personal injuries can result from a multitude of causes, including motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle and recreational vehicle accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, premises security incidents, sports injuries, boating and cruise ship incidents, amongst others.
