The High Costs Of An Injury

A serious injury can forever and dramatically change your life. Often it isn’t until you or a family member breaks a leg or suffers a traumatic brain injury that the full scope of the costs associated with these types of serious injuries is truly understood.

At Rothchild Law Office, we help people whose painful and disabling injuries were caused by negligent drivers and property owners. We have helped thousands of individuals recover compensation after a motor vehicle crash, dog bite or slip-and-fall accident, and regularly apply our knowledge and experience of the personal injury claims process to win clients the money they need to recover and move forward with their lives.

Injury Victims Suffer Personal And Financial Hardships

Injuries are not only physically painful, they are also expensive and may prevent you from taking part in and enjoying your life. While the personal losses associated with a serious injury may be more difficult to quantify in terms of an actual dollar amount, they tend to be significant and may include:

    • Chronic pain — Even after a serious injury heals, you may still experience chronic pain and require medication and physical therapy.
    • Loss of mobility and use — Injuries including broken bones, torn ligaments and damage to the spinal cord can hinder normal range of movement.
    • Loss of independence — If a serious injury leaves you unable to stand, walk or lift, your ability to remain independent can be severely inhibited.
  • Loss of enjoyment — Were you previously a runner, an avid traveler or an active parent? An injury can interfere with your ability to participate in and enjoy life.

In addition to the significant personal costs, the financial costs associated with a serious injury can quickly total into the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars and cause you and your family to suffer serious financial hardships. At Rothchild Law Office, we’ll fight to recover money for both your personal and financial losses including:

    • Medical bills — From doctor visits and diagnostic tests to surgery and physical therapy, a serious injury is likely to be accompanied by seriously high medical bills.
    • Medications — After an injury, you may be forced to rely on prescription and over-the-counter medications to control pain and other injury-related complications.
    • Modifications to your vehicle and home — From hand-driving controls to a wheelchair ramp, special equipment related to your injury can be costly.
  • Lost wages and disability — You will need to take time off of work to recover from your injuries and you may be unable to return to work.
