If you are recovering from surgery after a car accident in Wishaw, can you claim?
Even the most well-travelled route can throw up surprises for drivers in the form of unexpected roadworks and fallen objects in the road. Drivers who commute every day can become complacent, perform risky manoeuvres in their efforts to rush home, or drive dangerously over the speed limit.
Due to reckless or negligent driving, accidents unfortunately happen and people are sometimes severely injured, requiring surgery and ongoing treatment. Injuries that result in surgery from a car accident in Wishaw are normally caused by a high-velocity impact and include:
- Fractures of the spine – Injuries can cause paralysis, pain or mobility problems and require realignment of the bones if the injury is severe.
- Abdominal Surgery – Injuries are caused by blunt trauma, due to compression. Internal organs, such as the liver and kidneys, may be damaged and the patient will need surgical intervention and intensive care.
- Chest injuries – Damage is caused by crushing or penetrating and may inhibit breathing or cause internal bleeding. Surgical intervention and intensive medical care is required.
- Broken pelvis – A pelvic injury can be life-threatening due to the extensive blood loss that often occurs and requires immediate medical care. Operations are performed to prevent infection, internal bleeding and organ damage.
If you have been injured through no fault of your own, you can claim with our support. Call us now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993.
