Key Largo Personal Injury Attorney
Key Largo describes itself as an island paradise that is the “Diving Capital of the World.” Whenever a place such as Key Largo identifies and markets itself to others as a place to visit, it is sure to drive tourists and thrill seekers to come and visit the location. When this occurs, the chances of residents and visitors being involved in injury accidents increase dramatically. No one visits a place like Key Largo expecting to be injured in a diving accident, jet ski wreck, car accident, or a slip and fall, but these serious and terrible events do happen. When they do, it is important to seek out knowledgeable legal counsel about your rights and options from The Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky, P.A.Common Injuries in Key Largo Personal Injury Accidents
Just as the methods and means whereby Key Largo residents and visitors are injured can vary, the types of injuries that victims experience also vary. The types of injuries a personal injury victim might experience as the result of another’s careless or reckless conduct include:
- Traumatic brain injuries, which can result in memory loss, loss of function, and temporary or permanent disabilities. For a child or young adult with a traumatic brain injury, the amount of expenses and losses that he or she and his or her family will experience can amount in the hundreds of thousands of dollars (or more);
- Broken bones that can cause tremendous pain and limit the victim’s mobility for weeks or months. During this time, the victim may not be able to work or he or she may need to accept a lower-paying position. In addition, the victim may not be able to participate in any of the activities he or she once enjoyed.
- Amputations, or the loss of finger(s), toe(s), and/or limbs. These are extremely painful injuries that can cause permanent limitations. Although prosthetic technology has dramatically improved in recent years, these prosthetics are expensive and can require time before they are able to be used effectively.
Other injuries can include internal bleeding, bruising, cuts and lacerations, and/or infections resulting from wounds that are improperly cleaned or treated. Obviously, the more serious the injuries, the greater the financial harm the victim and his or her family can expect to suffer.Call Your Key Largo Attorney at The Law Offices of Joseph I.
