Accidental injuries should always be checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible after they occur. Once an injury is diagnosed by a medical professional, they can recommend a treatment plan to prevent complications and improve your prognosis. In some situations, this treatment plan can include one or more surgical procedures.
Some injuries that might require surgery include:
- Compound fractures
- Skull fractures
- Severe brain injury resulting in swelling or hemorrhaging
- Soft tissue tears
- Internal organ damage
- Fractured hips
- Burn injuries
When surgery is necessary, it is important to undergo the procedure when recommended, whether it is as soon as possible following the accident or a few weeks later. Some people need an immediate procedure and another one down the road, such as to insert hardware for broken bones and later remove it.
Surgery can increase the costs of your medical treatment, as well as increase your recovery time. Following many types of surgeries, patients must spend time recovering in the hospital and then at home, during which they are unable to go to work. In many ways, surgery can increase your losses and make it even more important that you recover the compensation you deserve.
If another party caused your accident and injuries, their insurance company should be liable for all of your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses. The right Campbell personal injury attorney can help ensure that you recover financially – as well as physically – after an accidental injury.
