Your Legal Options After a Serious Injury

To receive compensation for damages facilitated by a serious injury, the injured party must file a personal injury claim against the negligent party. The injured party must prove negligence occurred and directly precipitated their injuries. The required evidence can vary depending on the accident. Evidence that can be useful for a case can include medical documentation of the injuries, videos or pictures of the hazard, and witness testimonies. If successful in proving negligence, the injured party may recover compensation as coverage for any damages stemming from the accident.

Spear Greenfield has helped serious injury clients navigate legalities to receive justice and their entitled compensation. Our catastrophic injury lawyers will represent your best interests and fight for rightfully deserved serious injury compensation. To help you learn more, below are some initial stages of the legal process with links to additional information.

Common Causes of Serious Injuries

A serious injury claim can occur for many reasons, such as:

  • Vehicle accidents: You could be involved in an accident involving an automobile, truck, bus, or motorcycle resulting from the negligence of another driver.
  • Slips and falls: You might be visiting a neighbor and experience a severe injury when slipping on the ice on their front porch.
  • Medical malpractice: You may receive advice or undergo a treatment regimen prescribed by a doctor that worsens your condition.
  • Pedestrian accidents: An injury can occur when you’re walking down the street. A drunk driver could strike you when they stray onto the sidewalk or run a stop sign or red light. A neighbor’s dog may jump the fence and attack you as you pass by.
  • Defective products: In many cases, the household products and other items we use daily are safe. However, a mistake resulting from the manufacturer’s negligence can lead to a serious injury.
  • Violent crime: You could become the victim of an assault, robbery, shooting, or another criminal act that causes a significant injury.

A capable serious injury attorney can determine whether you may be entitled to damages and devise an effective legal strategy to pursue financial recovery.

Types of Serious Injury

Serious injuries can cause long-term or permanent damages, which can affect an individual for the rest of their life. At Spear Greenfield, our experienced team of serious injury attorneys will make sure you get the medical care you need and the financial compensation you deserve after being hurt by a negligent party. Some of the serious injuries our firm has experience handling are listed to the right.

A serious injury lawyer may also be able to assist you if you experience any of these injuries:

  • Internal: A fall, auto accident, or act of violence can damage your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, or other vital organs, resulting in a potentially life-threatening situation.
  • Traumatic orthopedic: Your accident could result in badly broken bones that require multiple surgeries and extensive rehabilitation to heal. These injuries can also significantly reduce your quality of life.
  • Amputation: An accident may cause an injury so severe that amputating an arm or leg and the permanent use of a prosthesis is the only choice.
  • Hearing or vision loss: An accident that causes extensive ear or eye damage could prevent you from working or resuming a normal lifestyle, possibly entitling you to serious injury compensation.
  • Facial: A severe injury to your face can lead to several rounds of expensive plastic surgery or leave you permanently disfigured.

Determining Liability

When a person sustains a serious injury, the damages from that injury can lead to significant physical, emotional, and financial hardship. Due to this hardship, victims can receive compensation as coverage for the sustained burdens. This compensation can be awarded if a serious injury leads to the following circumstances:


Medical intervention, including surgery, rehabilitation, the use of a medical device, or prescribing medication


Inability to work for an extended period of time


The physical or emotional suffering

Serious injuries can be devastating or debilitating to the injured party. At Spear Greenfield, many of our clients suffering catastrophic injuries need to be connected to a medical professional for both treatment and documentation. This is a critical step following a personal injury accident, so please allow our law firm to aid you in recovering.
