Pelvis injuries can be life threatening. There are major organs and blood vessels in the pelvic region. Pelvic fractures can cause extensive bleeding and organ damage. Pelvic injuries that are not life threatening can still be very serious and cause life-long pain and disability. Treatment of pelvic injuries is expensive. Recovery can be very long and painful. If you have suffered a pelvis injury in a car accident in Los Angeles, Sheridan & Rund, PC is here to help you and your family get the compensation you so badly need.
Why You Need Full Compensation for Pelvis Injury
The medical expenses for pelvic injuries can be very high, often involving multiple surgeries and long hospital stays. Recovery can involve months of immobility or limited mobility, meaning months of missed work. And, then there is still more physical therapy to restore as much function as possible. Once you have healed as much as possible, you may still experience significant impairment, chronic pain, and sexual dysfunction.
If organ damage was involved, the expense and long-term consequences can be far greater.
Depending on the severity and anticipated long-term consequences of your pelvis injury, you may be able to recover compensation for economic and non-economic damages including:
- Existing and future medical expenses
- Home health care
- Long term care
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Special equipment, home modifications, and a special vehicle to accommodate disability
