Types of Injuries

Injuries Caused from Accidents

Aside from sports and acts of violence, injuries are typically the result of some sort of an accident. An "accident" is defined as an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly or unintentionally, which typically results in damage or physical injury. In the vast majority of cases, accidents are the direct result of negligent or reckless behavior on behalf of the liable party. Whether the accidental injury involved a car wreck, or a dog attack, nursing home abuse or a slip and fall, the root cause can almost always be traced back to negligence.

There are a host of injuries that can be caused by accidents, but some injuries are more common in certain types of accidents as compared to others. For example, with nursing home abuse it's common for the elderly victim to suffer bruising, or ligature marks from being tied down, whereas with car accidents one can suffer whiplash injuries, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and broken bones.

Some of the most common types of injuries that the Law Office of Gary D. Baughman, APC encounters on a regular basis include:

Nobody is ever truly emotionally or financially prepared for the aftermath of an injury accident. While the accident can occur in a matter of seconds, the consequences can last for years if not the rest of your life. Spinal cord injuries can lead to temporary or permanent paralysis below the injury site, and brain injuries can cause memory loss, amnesia, unconsciousness and death.

Amputation injuries can leave the victim without an arm or a leg, and the survivor of a near-drowning accident can be left in a vegetative state for the rest of their life. There is no doubt that the injuries sustained in personal injury accidents vary widely, as do their physical and financial cost. With over 35 years of experience handling personal injury claims, attorney Baughman can pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

If you were injured in an accident, it's critical that you don't attempt to fight the insurance company on your own. Instead, contact a Redlands personal injury attorney from the Law Office of Gary D. Baughman, APC for help.
