Loss of Limb & Broken Bones – Serious Injuries often require More Care. Personal Injury Lawyer Tim Leigh-Bell Can Help.
The extent of an injury following an accident can range from the relatively minor, such as bruises or scrapes, to very serious, such as broken bones or the loss of a limb. More serious injuries often require more extensive – and more expensive – medical treatment and rehabilitation. Some may even cause permanent injuries or disability.
If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury following an accident, Tim Leigh-Bell can help you understand your options for recovering compensation for your medical expenses and financial losses. Tim Leigh-Bell works with a variety of professional experts, if necessary, to determine the extent of your injuries to ensure you receive the compensation you need to achieve maximum recovery.
Compensation Benefits for Disabling Injuries
If you were not at fault for your accident and you suffered an amputation or other serious impairment, you could be entitled to seek further compensation from the other driver or at-fault party for your:
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses, including prosthetics and functional re-training
- Past and future loss of income
- Loss of ability and loss of opportunity
- Pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
I handle a variety of cases involving serious injury caused by reckless driving or dangerous road conditions such as:
- Broken collar-bones
- Severe shoulder injuries such as shoulder dislocation or torn rotator cuffs
- Joint injuries to wrists, elbows and knees
- Loss of limb/amputation
- Abrasions (road rash), which can cause serious infection
Together with his legal team, Tim Leigh-Bell will ensure that you receive the benefits you need to achieve maximum recovery. This includes disability benefits for any unique expenses you may require in the future such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational counselling, prosthetics, home modification, attendant care and other concerns.
Some injuries can result in permanent disability and leave you unable to work. In such cases, Tim Leigh-Bell will seek to arrange for a tax-free annuity to support you with regular payments until retirement age or for life, as part of your final settlement.
