Multiple & Major Trauma

Have you suffered complex and multiple injuries through major trauma caused by an accident?

Unfortunately, serious accidents seldom result in singular injuries. More often than not the victim suffers multiple injuries simultaneously and in some cases further injuries, directly attributable to the original accident, can appear at a later date. Here at Sheldon Davidson we have experience of pursuing financial compensation claims for all types of injuries in all manner of combinations. It is not hard to conceive that a serious car accident, or an accident whilst enjoying high adrenalin sports could result in multiple serious injuries at the same time.

Examples of serious, multiple injuries sustained during a serious accident could be:

  • Neurological (brain) Injuries
  • Orthopaedic Injuries (Limb fractures)
  • Musculoskeletal Injuries
  • Maxillofacial injuries
  • Internal Organ Injuries
  • Psychological Injuries

Riks and complications associated with complex and multiple injury cases

A person’s ability to sustain and recover from multiple injuries is dependent on many factors including age, overall health and any existing medical conditions. In a scenario where the patient has suffered multiple injuries, their treatment needs can be complex and require careful management to ensure the best chance of recovery. It is likely that the patient will need to see different specialist Doctors for different types of injury and the recovery programme for each injury will likely be different. This can mean that the road to recovery is long, which can have a significant impact on the patient themselves and also family members, who may be reliant on earnings the patient is no longer able to provide. It may also be that one or more family members are forced to work less, in order to provide care and support for the patient and as a result their earning potential is also impacted. This would be for consideration when valuing a claim for financial compensation.

How will a major trauma, multiple injurm claim be calcualted?

As with any case where financial compensation is sought, the main consideration will be to compare the life of the victim and their immediate family before and after the accident. In making this comparison our lawyers will seek to steer the court to settle on a figure which is commensurate with all costs incurred, any financial losses and expected future costs directly attributable to the accident and injuries suffered. The main items for consideration would likely be:

  • Loss of earnings (to include the victim and any family members who provide care)
  • Medical costs
  • Modifications to the home and transport (modified car for example)
  • On-going care provision
  • Any equipment required to enhance independent living

The above list is not exhaustive, as each case is unique and complex. This is where the right lawyer can make all the difference. At Sheldon Davidson we are extremely well versed on building claims of this nature for clients across the Greater Manchester region and we have much success in this field.
