PERSONAL INJURY TOPICS
The loss of a body part most commonly happens in traffic accidents involving bicycles, trains and motorcycles or in workplace accidents that occur at a factory or on a farm. Other causes of amputations involve using power tools, firearms, explosives and fireworks.
It can take months or even longer to fully recover from a bone, a stress fracture or a severe dislocation. This type of injury can force an injured person to miss work for extended periods of time and struggle with activities that most of us take for granted.
Paralysis that affects only one muscle or limb is partial paralysis, also known as palsy. Paralysis of all muscles is total paralysis. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with nerve injury, poliomyelitis, cerebral palsy, and peripheral neuropathy.
A traumatic eye injury can cause varying degrees of vision loss due to trauma. A penetrating injury such as a laceration or a blunt force injury to the eye can cause temporary or permanent damage to eyesight.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a severe and debilitating loss that occurs when the brain is strike or jolted from outside forces. Greater than 30% of all injury and related deaths car accidents result in TBI. Millions of dollars are required to care for these victims over their lifetime. Millions of Americans suffer TBI each year, and the effects can be debilitating. Victims and their families may struggle to cope with cognitive and physical disabilities, loss of independence, and changes in personality.
Even though large trucks are only responsible for 3% of injury-causing motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents typically cause more significant harm than ordinary traffic accidents due to the large size and heavy weight of most trucks.
