DC Personal Injury Attorney
A serious personal injury can easily turn your life inside out. It may limit your ability to work and to care for your family. Under worse circumstances, a debilitating injury may have a deleterious impact on your ability to move. Furthermore, mounting expenses for medical treatment (including everything from surgery, prescription medication, physical therapy, or long-term care), coupled with loss of income from work, can quickly lead to a daunting situation. If your injury was the result of another person or entity’s negligence or recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation to help you cover your expenses so you can focus on making a quick, smooth, and full recovery. Contact a serious injury lawyer in DC today for a free initial consultation at (202) 600-9400.
Different Types of Personal Injuries
Our attorneys at Price Benowitz LLP handle a wide variety of serious injuries in the District of Columbia. Below is a brief description of some different kinds of cases our attorneys may handle. For more specific information about the law, or how the law applies to your case, you should consult with a qualified lawyer like those at our firm.
Burn injuries account for a high number of deaths and serious injuries across the United States each year. Burns can be classified into degrees of severity by depth, commonly known as:
- First Degree Burn: Extends only into the epidermis.
- Second Degree Burn: Extends below the epidermis into the dermis.
- Third Degree Burn: Extends all the way through to the subcutaneous level.
- Fourth Degree Burn: Extends down to and through muscle, fat, and bone.
Burns can also be classified by severity (minor, moderate, major), using a number of factors like total body percentage affected, whether there are inhalation injuries, where the burns occurred, and the age and health of the victims.
Furthermore, these injuries can be chemical, electrical, thermal (e.g., fire), or radiation burns, all which have different symptoms, prognosis, and treatment.
A spinal cord injury can be caused by a number of things, from everyday activities (e.g., sports) to horrific ones (e.g., car accident). A spinal cord injury can be succinctly defined as any injury or harm to the spinal cord caused by trauma (outside force) rather than disease. This includes serious neck and back injuries.
Brain injuries are also handled by our attorneys at Price Benowitz LLP. A brain injury can be caused, among other things, by a traumatic force (e.g., traumatic brain injury) or from a lack of oxygen (anoxic brain injury).
