Injuries oftentimes just represent minor setbacks. Some other times, they can also constitute a temporary adjustment in your lifestyle until you heal. Nevertheless, there are times when the injuries sustained are more than a minor setback but a life-altering condition that you will have to permanently live with thereafter.
When injuries fall under this criterion, they are considered serious injuries. When you suffer these, especially because of reckless or negligent behavior on a third party’s part, you have got to take legal action in order to be compensated for the toll the injury took on your life. Ganim Legal P.C. can help you achieve your legal goals.
What Is a Serious Injury?
A serious injury is a type of injury that negatively affects your general well-being. They are injuries whose extent is so considerable that after your recovery period is concluded, you do not return to the normal conditions you used to enjoy prior to the accident.
The best way to be eligible for a serious injury claim is to acquire documentation based on tests and a doctor’s expert opinion to determine the degree of the injuries and whether they can be deemed serious injuries.
If you or a loved one have suffered a serious injury as a result of an accident, personal attack, or workplace incident, contact us at Ganim Legal P.C., who will ensure that proper medical assistance is offered, and that substantial, beneficial compensation is also received.
What Can Be Considered a Serious Injury?
As you can see, only authorized expert medical opinion can gauge the extent of your injuries. However, there are certain parameters for injuries that are generally considered serious:
- Injuries that cause a permanent limitation of the use of a certain body organ or member
- Injuries that limit the use of a bodily function or system
- Non-permanent injuries that prevent you from performing daily life activities for no less than 90 days, all within 180 days from the event that caused your injury
There are also other examples of concrete, serious injuries you may suffer:
- Extensive disfigurement
- Compound fractures
- Fetus loss in the case of females
- Brain injuries
When you suffer any of these injuries, there is a high likelihood that you are going to require some form of supervision or assistance that will pose an economic burden on your budget, plus the potential loss of income you may perceive from not being able to perform work-related tasks to the same degree—or not being able to perform them at all altogether—you used to.
Hence, being compensated for your injuries becomes a necessity. Ganim Legal P.C. is a law firm that relentlessly fights for your needs and wants. Under the meticulous supervision of Attorney Paul Ganim, we make sure that you are financially set in this regard.
Symptoms of Serious Injuries
It is a rather common occurrence that the effects of an injury do not become noticeable until some time after the incident has gone by. Whenever you suffer a workplace injury or accident, it is imperative that you gather as much conclusive evidence as possible that proves you have effectively had an accident.
Otherwise, it can become more difficult to prove this without the given documentation, mostly since having an accident represents a liability that insurance companies will do their best to divert or simply get rid of. Even if it is their duty to take care of you financially in these circumstances, they have teams of corporate lawyers that are advocated to reduce them as much as possible to minimize corporate losses.
Ganim Legal P.C. deals with insurance companies so that you can get results that behoove your finest interests.
Whenever you feel symptoms like the ones mentioned below, you might be in the presence of an onset of serious injury:
- Strong, recurrent headaches

- Lack of focus
- Shoulder and/or neck pain
- Tingling or burning sensations in your limbs and adjacent body parts
- Blurred, decreased, or lost vision
- Hearing decrease or loss

Ganim Legal P.C. strongly advises you not to ignore these symptoms and to promptly get the required medical and legal assistance to feel better and to build your case successfully.
