Many injuries result in medical expenses and time away from work during the recovery period. Some injuries, however, may never fully heal, requiring ongoing treatment, prolonged periods of unemployment, and a number of emotional and physical consequences. These severe or catastrophic personal injuries almost always demand the attention of a personal injury lawyer.
Severe personal injury can take many forms. Among the most common to result in lawsuits are:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Burn injury
- Pulverized, broken, or fractured bones
These injuries often require both emergency and on-going medical treatment, sometimes necessitating various forms of therapy for years and/or requiring round-the-clock monitoring, adaptive technologies, and similarly expensive modes of care. When your injury is the result of someone else’s negligence, you should not be saddled with these expenses. This is where a personal injury attorney will prove most useful.

The Dangers of Trusting Insurance Companies
When you sustain a serious and life-altering injury, you may be surprised by the speed at which insurance companies move to settle your claim. Don’t be fooled. They move quickly because they know that you may be in a position of needing money for your medical bills. They also know that as soon as you accept their offer, you have waived your right to seek real compensation.
Individuals who file personal injury claims often receive significantly more by way of compensation. Insurance companies have a long history of doing everything necessary, up to and including exploiting vulnerabilities during a victim’s time of need, to try and force a settlement. When you choose Brown & Brown, we will stand between you and these manipulative tactics to protect your best interests and prevent insurance companies from pressing unfair advantage.
