The Challenge of Proving Your Injuries are Serious
Some of the most debilitating injuries can often be most difficult to observe with the naked eye Often, in the aftermath of an accident, as you take steps to move forward with your life, one of the biggest challenges is demonstrating to a judge and jury the serious nature of your injuries.. For example, back or neck trauma that limits your motor skills or limits your ability to stand, sit or lie down comfortably may be hard to show to a jury. While pain is something you feel, no one else can see your pain. They can only see the impact of your pain, in a grimace or the inability to put weight on an arm or leg. Even with injuries that have physical manifestations, such as burns or the loss of a limb, it can be hard to get other people to understand the full measure of your suffering.
To get full and fair compensation for the serious injuries you have suffered, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to work effectively with expert witnesses, particularly medical specialists. Your attorney will want to systematically document the full extent of your injuries, as well as the impact that your injuries will have on every aspect of your life
- Will you be able to return to your job without experiencing significant pain or discomfort?
- Will you need physical therapy or rehab to learn how to perform many of the day-to-day tasks in your life?
- Will you need ongoing medical care for months or years?
- Will you need to retrofit your home or car to accommodate your injury?
- Will your injury make it difficult or impossible to live without regular or constant pain?
You can expect that defense counsel will produce medical experts who will seek to diminish the seriousness of your injury. Consequently, it’s critical that your experts be highly credible, and that your attorney carefully introduce the medical evidence is ways that are understandable and compelling.
