Common Injuries Involved in Personal Injury Cases

It is important to remember the type of injury you are dealing with will not determine whether you have the right to compensation. Many personal injury victims are worried their injuries may not be accepted for filing an insurance claim or pursuing a civil lawsuit. However, it is important to understand the qualifications for a personal injury claim. Here are some of the most common personal injuries we see in our cases at our personal injury law firm in Jackson, TN:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): This injury can result from motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, falls, sports injuries, and more. Traumatic brain injury can have a significant effect on a person’s cognitive functioning, physical abilities, emotional control, and can even render them unconscious for an extended period of time.
  • Neck Injury: These types of injuries can involve sprains or strains to the tendons, ligaments, and muscles of the neck. Neck injuries are often referred to as “whiplash” because it occurs when the head snaps forward and then backward similar to a whip. Whiplash often requires physical therapy and can limit the ability to work or engage in regular activities.
  • Back Injury: Sprains, strains, herniated discs, bulging discs, slipped discs, or pinched nerves can often immobilize a victim. This results in the inability to work until the victim has recovered. Back injuries may also require surgery if they do not resolve through physical therapy.
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): Damage to the vertebrae, nerves, and other parts of the spinal cord can severely disrupt movement and sensory abilities in a personal injury victim. It is not uncommon for SCI victims to end up temporarily or permanently paralyzed in all body parts below the point of the injury on the spine.
  • Internal Organ Damage: Motor vehicle accidents can often lead to a variety of internal organ damages such as internal bleeding, punctured lungs, punctured spleen, rupture of the abdominal aorta, and more. Any of these damages can be potentially life-threatening and require emergency medical care.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

At Gibson Perryman, we help our clients navigate through a variety of personal injury cases. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases we see are:

  • Motor Vehicle Accident:  According to the National Safety Council, there are around 2,498,000 motor vehicle related injuries every year in the US. Every year millions suffer injuries from motor vehicle accidents – and often these injuries are even fatal.
  • Medical Malpractice: There is a variety of medical malpractices, including misdiagnosis, improper treatment, surgical errors, inaccurate medication prescriptions, birth injury, and failure to diagnose cancer or other serious health conditions. These types of medical malpractice cases are complex and require the assistance of a dedicated personal injury lawyer.
  • Wrongful Death: This type of lawsuit comes to fruition when another individual has lost a life potentially due to someone else’s carelessness. Why start a wrongful death lawsuit? These types of lawsuits allow for the recovery of damages that are unique and different from those available when someone suffers non-fatal injuries. Typically, most wrongful death lawsuits arise out of motor vehicle crashes, nursing home neglect, medical malpractice, construction accidents, airplane accidents, or the use of a defective/dangerous product.
  • Workplace Accident: Typically, if someone is injured while working for their employer, they must institute a claim under the Workers’ Compensation Act. This action requires the employer to provide benefits to the injured employer. These benefits typically include medical treatment, temporary total disability, and a lump-sum payment.
