There is no question that a pelvic injury can be disrupting and lead to serious consequences. However, when the pelvic injury is the result of a car accident, motorcycle accident, or other Ohio personal injury matter, you may be faced with additional consequences such as mounting unpaid medical expenses, lost wages, inability to work in the future, and an inability to perform activities that you once enjoyed.
At the law offices of Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., our Columbus broken pelvis attorneys provide legal counsel to those throughout Ohio who have suffered a serious pelvic injury from a personal injury matter.
Pelvic injuries, such as pelvic fractures, can unfortunately be a common injury from a personal injury matter. From car wrecks, to slip and fall incidents, to even pedestrian accidents, a fractured or broken pelvis can cause severe agony and even more serious lifelong effects, such as severe abdominal pain, numbness and tingling in the lower extremities, and trouble standing or walking.
With what the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons calls a “stable fracture” (single point of fracture with no risk of shifting bones), the most common treatment is bedrest and pain medication, which present a good chance at successful recovery. Due to the extended period of time required to heal, one may lose significant wages from not being able to work and have difficulty paying for increasing medical expenses. “Unstable” pelvic fractures, however, can be life-threatening and present the possibilities of further injuries such as organ damage and infection. It this situation, many people need invasive surgery, pins, and plates in order to heal.
Regardless of the circumstances, it is crucial to speak with a trusted Columbus personal injury attorney to ensure that all of your losses – including those such as having to live with surgical hardware, a permanent or debilitating condition, or resulting pain from the injury – are compensated appropriately. At Brian G. Miller Co., L.P.A., our personal injury attorneys can assist you in recovering your medical expenses, full lost wages, future lost wages, and in damages related to pain and suffering and any permanency that your injuries cause.
Depending upon the type of accident that caused your broken pelvis or other pelvic injury, your claim will be litigated differently. For example, if you were to have suffered a serious pelvic injury as a result of a car wreck, recovery might be sought under a claim of negligence or negligence per se. If you suffered a pelvic injury in a workplace injury, one might bring an employer intentional tort or third-party negligence claim. However, if you suffered a significant pelvic injury as a result of a slip and fall accident, you may pursue recovery under a theory of premise liability.
In addition to the claims pursued, those who suffer serious pelvic injuries as a result of a personal injury matter all have unique challenges associated with recovery. For example, one person may have issue with reaching a full recovery while another person may have permanent pain that presents from the injury. Managing those claims can be difficult without an experienced Columbus pelvic injury attorney.
Regardless of the type of claim or challenges associated with those claims, an experienced attorney would seek to make a full recovery for you based upon your medical bills and lost wages, noneconomic damages for pain and suffering or emotional trauma, and compensation for future costs that flow from having a lifelong injury.
