Minnesota Skull Fracture Lawyer
Skull fractures can heal, but not before the damage is already done. Other times, skull fractures can cause complications that lead to long-term issues and this is something that is very expensive. When the skull fracture is the result of an accident that is due to someone else’s negligence, the matter becomes even more devastating.
If you or a loved one sustained a skull fracture in an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to hold the responsible party liable for the damages that have been sustained. With the help of a Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney, you can fight for your right to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and much more.
Helping You Heal
While money doesn’t fix everything when it comes to an accident that results in serious injury, reducing the stress related to financial matters can help you heal much faster than you would otherwise. We also give you the support that you need because we understand what you are going through and we want to see you achieve justice in the end. We have helped individuals who have suffered the following types of skull fractures:
- Simple skull fracture – The skin is not broken, but the bone is
- Linear skull fracture – The fracture is a thin line with no skull depressions, bone distortion, or splintering
- Compound skull fracture – the skull is splintered and the skin is broken
- Depressed fracture – The skull is broken and is depressed in toward the brain
Of these types, the linear skull fracture may not require surgery, making it the least serious of them all. However, a person who is hit in the head again after a linear skull fracture can experience serious injury.
Recovering The Compensation You Deserve
Chances are, you are experiencing disorientation, headaches, stiff neck, nausea, and pain at the injury site. These are just the basic symptoms of a skull fracture. There are times that it can be even more serious. If the brain is impacted, then a person can be unconscious, experience changes in motor skills, experience behavioral changes, and much more. Some of the complications can include swelling of the brain, bleeding of the brain, and more. Anything involving the brain is serious.
This is why your Mankato personal injury attorney will work very hard for you to recover the compensation you need from the responsible party. That way you do not have to worry about medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs related to the accident and injury.
