May 20, 2022 | Category: Brain Injuries | Share

National Trauma Awareness Month 2022The University of Florida Health (UFHealth) defines traumatic injuries as: “…physical injuries of sudden onset and severity which require immediate medical attention. The injury may cause systemic shock called ‘shock trauma’ and may require immediate resuscitation and interventions to save life and limb. Traumatic injuries are the result of a wide variety of blunt, penetrating, and burn mechanisms. They include motor vehicle collisions, sports injuries, falls, natural disasters, and a multitude of other physical injuries which can occur at home, on the street, or while at work and require immediate care.” The guidelines for trauma were established in 1976 and are designated as Level I, II, III, or IV based on the care trauma centers provide and the number of cases they currently have.

UFHealth says some of the common traumatic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Spine fractures
  • Amputation - traumatic
  • Facial trauma
  • Acoustic trauma
  • Crush injury
  • Concussion

Traumatic accidents can occur anywhere, anytime. We know that the costs add up quickly when you or a family loved one receives traumatic injuries in an accident. We protect your rights and are your representative when negotiating with insurance companies. We will use a multitude of sources when working on your case such as:

Traumatic injuries can occur in many types of accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, nursing home accidents, pedestrian accidents, bike accidents, boating accidents, ATV accidents, and others. 

Dealing with insurance companies can be frustrating for traumatic accident victims. The companies may negate the severity of your injuries and/or deny any responsibility for the accident. You are required to contact your insurance company following an accident; however, the adjuster works for the insurance company and has an interest in either getting the other insurance company to pay damages or paying out as little as possible. This is why it is important to contact Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A. immediately after seeking medical attention if you are injured in an accident. We handle serious and wrongful death personal injury cases in the State of Florida. There are many questions you may have regarding your personal injury case, some of which may be answered at FQAs.
