A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can be extremely serious and change a car accident victim's life forever. There's a fine line between a head injury and a TBI. If you suspect you or a loved one has a TBI or head injury, see a doctor who is familiar with TBIs and who knows how to diagnose them.
There are two different types of TBIs people often sustain, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC):
- Penetrating Traumatic Brain Injury - An injury to the brain caused by an object that entered a victim's skull.
- Closed Traumatic Brain Injury - An injury to the brain caused by movement of the brain in the skull.
Doctors often use several different scales to determine if someone has a mild or severe head injury. Two of the most common scales are the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) and the Abbreviated Injury Scale (AIS). Don't try to self-diagnose. Seek immediate medical treatment. Then contact us.
Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries we deal with at Lawter & Associates, PLLC. If you sustain an injury to your spine, you might permanently lose your ability to walk or move normally for the rest of your life.
Depending on the severity of your spinal cord injury and exactly where your injury occurred on your body or your loved one's spine, your spinal cord injury could result in paralysis, which leaves injury victims unable to move certain parts of their body.
There are two major types of paralysis. They are:
- Paraplegia - Paralysis from the waist down, leaving injury victims unable to use their legs.
- Quadriplegia - Paralysis from the neck down, leaving injury victims unable to use their arms or legs.
No matter what type of spinal cord injury you're dealing with, contact us. We can help you and your family get the compensation you deserve.
Back injuries caused by car accidents can cover a wide range. Sometimes, back injuries seem mild at first. But very quickly, soreness in the back can escalate into a severe back injury. If you suspect a back injury, seek immediate medical treatment, even if your condition seems mild.
A doctor can examine you to determine the severity of your back injury. Some of the warning signs of a back injury include:
- Soreness in your back
- Trouble walking or standing up
- Tingling in your fingers
- Pain in your legs
Take your back injury seriously. Seek immediate medical attention. Then contact us. We have years of experience handling complicated car accident injury cases. We know what evidence to look for and how to deliver results. Expect more. Contact Lawter & Associates, PLLC.
Neck injuries caused by car accidents can cover a wide range. Severe neck injuries can include spinal cord injuries or even traumatic brain injuries. But even so-called milder neck injuries like whiplash can be painful and have devastating consequences.
Whiplash might seem like a minor injury to some people - until they experience this real, persistent injury themselves. In addition, what might seem like whiplash could actually be a more severe neck injury.
Don't take chances with your health. Seek immediate medical attention for your neck injury. Then contact us. We can help you get the compensation you deserve so you can focus on what really matters - your recovery.
Broken bones are common car accident injuries in Oklahoma. Drivers or passengers might break bones in their face, arms, hands or fingers because of an extreme force exerted on the bones.
Bone fractures are never minor injuries. Even a small fracture may result in lost time from work. Broken bones can result in paralysis or other life-changing injuries. The financial impact can be staggering.
Accidents might result in the following types of broken bone injuries:
- Wrist fractures
- Tibia and fibula fractures (bones in the legs)
- Hip fractures
- Facial and skull fractures
- Pelvis fractures
- Clavicle fractures (collarbone injury)
- Humerus fracture (injury to the long bone in the arm)
Remember, you didn't do anything wrong. You shouldn't have to suffer because of another driver's reckless behavior. Get the medical attention you deserve - without worrying about the cost of the treatment. Contact us. We fight for injury victims' rights.
Internal injuries caused by car accidents are among the most severe - and potentially life-threatening - injuries we handle at Lawter & Associates, PLLC. What makes these injuries so dangerous is people with internal injuries often appear normal after an accident.
Internal injuries can cover a wide range. They can include:
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Head injuries, including brain injuries
Don't take chances with your health. If you suspect you have an internal injury because of a car accident, seek immediate medical attention. Don't even wait an hour or a day to be examined. Call your doctor or a hospital right now. Then contact us. We can help.
The emotional toll of a serious car accident can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one was injured in an auto accident, you might be in shock or suffering from long-term psychological effects from the accident. Seek treatment for psychological injuries as soon as possible as it is hard to make a claim for this type of condition without treatment.
Even if you don't have a physical injury, you can still be suffering from psychological trauma or mental anguish because of your car accident. The psychological injury might affect your ability to work certain jobs and may have an impact on your self-image and your quality of life. Pursuing damages for mental anguish is typically a difficult process. Victims need an experienced attorney who knows how to gather strong evidence to show that mental anguish was incurred.
