Hearing news that an injury you sustained due to the negligent actions of another person and is going to leave you with a permanent problem can be devastating.
A permanent injury settlement refers to compensation that the court awards to you. The injury becomes permanent when your doctor diagnoses your condition and deems that you will need continued medical care for the sustained injuries for an extended period of time.
Some injuries just don’t heal well; others don’t heal at all. What about the obvious ones like amputation of paralysis that leaves you with a permanent disadvantage? Still, others leave you with long-term or potentially indefinite problems, such as permanent muscular weakness or nerve damage.
If you have been permanently injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you need to consider whether or not to settle your case before going to trial. Resolving your claim this way can save you a lot of money and time.
Although most injuries are serious, permanent or catastrophic injuries can last much longer than other injuries sustained by the actions of others. When someone suffers from a permanent injury, it is most likely the result of a vehicle accident.
