South Carolina is home to many chemical plants, where an accident can lead to serious burns and even death. People can suffer burns in other types of accidents, too-such as car or truck accidents. Burns are categorized as first degree, second degree and third degree. But all burns can be extremely painful and disfiguring.
The treatment of burns is a long process that can require several surgeries. Whether you were burned at work, home or elsewhere, our attorneys can help you seek the compensation you need to recover as much as possible. We work with plastic surgeons and other experts to determine the true impact of your injury.
Traumatic brain injuries
This is a very serious injury that people can suffer when they experience a blow or trauma to the head. The impact disrupts the normal functioning of the brain. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cause persistent headaches, dizziness, memory loss, loss of coordination, nausea, difficulty sleeping and seizures. TBI can range from mild to severe.
A person can suffer a TBI in any type of accident which causes them to be struck on the head. This includes car, truck and motorcycle accidents, as well as slip-and-fall cases and sports injuries. TBI can require ongoing treatment. Our attorneys will fight to you the compensation needed to help you get better.
Any type of accident involving a forceful impact or fall can result in broken bones. For example, an accident involving a car, truck or motorcycle can leave someone with fractures to the arms, legs, wrists and hands. A person who slips and falls may also fracture a hip or break an arm.
While broken bones usually heal, they can cause significant problems with mobility in the short term. This can prevent someone from working or taking part in normal activities. Physical therapy and other types of rehabilitation may be needed. In some cases, for young victims, broken bones may not heal correctly, and a person may be left permanently disfigured or disabled. We work to help victims recover fair compensation.
Leg injuries are also common in accidents. For example, someone involved in a motor vehicle accident can break bones in the leg, knee or feet. A person who fell or was bitten by a dog could suffer damage to muscles, ligaments and nerves in the leg. People with leg injuries are unable to walk normally. They may be unable to work for some time, and may be unable to perform simple tasks as before. In some cases, the damage may be permanent.
Leg injuries can take quite some time to heal completely. Surgery and physical therapy may be needed. Our attorneys help clients with leg injuries get the compensation they need to recover as much as possible. In addition to your medical care and lost wages, we may be able to get compensation for replacement services such as childcare or yard work that you may need while your mobility is limited.
Neck, back and shoulder injuries
Many types of accidents can result in injury to the neck, back or shoulders. Neck injuries can include anything from whiplash to dislocation of vertebrae to spinal cord injuries. Back injuries can include strains or springs, fractured vertebrae, protruding discs and spinal trauma. Shoulder injuries can include rotator cuff or labrum tears, and dislocation.
These types of injuries can interfere with normal motion. Multiple surgeries and physical therapy may be needed to restore full mobility. Severe cases involving the spinal cord can result in paralysis. We work to recover damages for people with neck, back and shoulder injuries so they can have the resources they need to recover.
