A car accident or workplace accident that causes serious injury can be a very painful, frightening experience. If you are unfortunate enough to have suffered a catastrophic injury such as a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury, you will most likely face a lifetime of extraordinary challenges and needs. Your legal case will undoubtedly focus on how much you will need rather than on whether you need compensation.
A serious injury, on the other hand, may not change your life so dramatically or for such a long time, but it nonetheless brings about major losses that cannot be ignored. Serious injuries may include:
Your quality of life will be heavily challenged for an extended period of time if you require hospitalization, surgery, recovery time, therapy and rehabilitation. Ideally, with quality medical treatment and sufficient time to rest and get well, you will soon see the light at the end of the tunnel as you reclaim a normal lifestyle.

As you pursue compensation for a serious back, neck or knee injury, you may hear health care professionals or insurance company representatives speak of your “soft tissue” injury. You may come to realize that recovering proper compensation for a very painful neck injury is likely to be an uphill battle. At Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C., we believe you will soon understand the critical role of a personal injury attorney in your recovery process. We serve clients throughout Connecticut, in communities, including Hartford. Personal injury lawyers at our firm can advise you on how to protect your right to compensation.
Your Recovery Needs Are Serious After A Serious Injury
Just because no bones were broken, that does not mean your injury is not very serious. It may keep you from being able to work and enjoy life as before because of chronic pain and/or the debilitating effects of painkilling medications. Your back, neck, knee or shoulder injury is serious indeed if it is disabling. After your bone fracture heals, you may need physical therapy for an extended period of time.
Did Your Accident Exacerbate A Pre-Existing Condition?
For these reasons, we urge you to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. We know, for example, how to demonstrate that a re-injured pre-existing condition is deserving of compensation. Current Connecticut case law makes allowances for old injuries that become re-inflamed and debilitating after a new accident. You may be entitled to full recovery if a truck accident or slip-and-fall accident has re-injured a previous condition.
