Personal Injury Lawyers in Pensacola
In the most serious of accidents, injury victims are left with permanent disabilities in the form of paralysis, scarring or disfigurement, the loss of a limb, or the full or partial loss of use of a part of the body. Injuries such as these are enormously expensive to treat and are often accompanied by extensive periods of rehabilitation. Serious injuries require serious legal help, and the attorneys at Whibbs Stone Barnett have the knowledge, skills and experience to prepare a comprehensive case that covers a lifetime of additional costs in a compelling and persuasive manner. Cases involving serious injury are often complex and complicated; our lawyers have over 60 years of combined experience helping serious injury victims in Pensacola, Fort Walton and Mobile recover the necessary level of compensation to help them heal and live their lives to the fullest extent possible.
Our injury lawyers help people with the most serious injuries, including:
Burn injuries can result from fuel-fed fires or explosions in serious car or truck accidents. Also, chemical and electrical burns are hazards that exist in many workplace industrial accidents. Burn injuries can be extremely painful and expensive to treat, often requiring a lengthy period of wound care therapy followed by multiple rounds of skin grafts and surgeries which may be spaced out over months or years. Even with the best care, the burn injury victim may be left with permanent scarring and disfigurement. Burn injury victims are also exposed to the risk of serious complications from the injury, including infection and nerve and organ damage.
Damaged nerve endings may cause chronic pain or a loss of sensation and decreased ability to function. In addition, there are often emotional and psychological issues to deal with on an ongoing basis. All of these factors should be considered when pursuing a negligence case or workers’ compensation claim involving a burn injury.
Broken bones, particularly compound fractures, must be treated immediately and properly to improve the chances that the bones will heal correctly. Serious fractures may also involve serious or deadly complications, including damage to blood vessels and nerves, and an infection in the bone known as osteomyelitis. Accident victims suffering skull or vertebrae fractures risk brain or spinal injury as well.
Fractures can involve an extended, painful period of recovery and rehabilitation, and may involve long-term or permanent disability. It can be difficult to communicate these facts about fractures to juries who may not appreciate the serious nature of this type of injury. We provide strong and effective representation of people who have suffered a fracture due to a slip and fall on unsafe premises, or a fall from a ladder, scaffold or other height in the workplace.
The loss of a limb can be both physically and emotionally devastating. The effects of an amputation can stretch across one’s home and work life, level of independence, and general quality of life. Our serious injury attorneys work out a complete life care plan that includes all the costs an amputee may face, including a lengthy period of intensive care and rehabilitation, long-term wound care, counseling, vocational training, and periodic prostheses fittings and replacements over a lifetime. Where the home or car must be adapted to the needs of the accident victim, we make sure to include these costs as well. Our goal is to obtain as much compensation as is needed to ensure that our client receives the best medical care and can enjoy the best quality of life possible after a serious accident.
