What qualifies as a “serious injury?”
Pittman, Dutton & Hellums understands that, when you are hurting, ALL injuries are serious. For legal purposes, we consider serious injuries to be those that have permanent effect, such as full or partial paralysis, closed head injuries or traumatic brain injuries.
What exactly is a traumatic brain injury?
Traumatic Brain Injuries are injuries to the brain caused by physical trauma to the skull. It could be a head wound where an object penetrates the skull and enters the brain.. It could also be a closed head injury like a concussion, where a sharp blow to the head traumatizes the brain. People who are suffering from a traumatic brain injury could face medical issues like headaches, memory damage, fatigue, and in some cases, impulse control or depression. If you or your loved ones in Alabama are suffering from symptoms like these, Pittman, Dutton & Hellums urges you to get professional medical help immediately.
What if I have been seriously injured in an accident?
If you’ve been injured in an accident in Alabama, you should report the accident to the authorities immediately. If your injuries were as a result of an auto accident, get a copy of the accident report from the police and contact your insurance carrier as soon as possible. If you were seriously injured at a business, make sure the business owner or someone in management know about it immediately and ensure that you get a written report that documents the injury submitted quickly. When it comes to dealing with your insurance carrier…or the insurance company of the other party involved, it is usually not advisable to provide a statement to the insurance company before first contacting a personal injury attorney, like Pittman, Dutton & Hellums, to learn your legal rights and responsibilities under Alabama laws.
