Injuries of an type can fall into the severe category. Someone who has suffered Whiplash Injuries, that continue to be debilitating 5 years later, would certainly be justified in feeling their injuries were severe. Someone who had suffered a loss of his sense of smell, or of taste, or of touch, would certainly be justified in feeling their injuries were severe.
Injuries that linger for long periods. Injuries that affect a person’s life. Injuries that simply don’t fully heal. These are all indices that can be used to judge severity.
As with any injury, medical treatment must be obtained in a timely manner. Of equal importance is the need to follow up on the medical treatment so that:
- You are treated properly.
- There is a proper record.
Additionally a law firm should be retained as soon as possible to deal with the insurance company and ensure the case progresses properly. A law firm such as Zawislak & Zawislak should be retained because the issues involved are very complicated and there are simply so many issues to deal with.
