Call an Amarillo personal injury attorney today to discuss your case.What are some common types of injuries for which Amarillo and Potter County residents may be compensated?

(1) Death — Obviously the most severe injury is death and compensation for wrongful death is, of course, available to bereaved family members. However, sometimes death is not instantaneous and additional compensation may be available. Whether a decedent suffered consciously prior to death is a very important area of investigation for the Amarillo personal injury law firm.

(2) Back, Neck, & Spinal Injuries — Spinal injuries are the most common injuries seen in car accidents and work related injuries. Spinal injuries are best treated by an orthopedic surgeon but neurosurgeons may also treat the spine, though they tend to concentrate more heavily on the cervical (neck) region rather than the lumbar (lower back) region. In Amarillo, there are also an abundance of chiropractors, and, in less severe cases, they may treat the injured victim. Spinal injuries can include:

  • Whiplash or back and neck strain.
  • Herniated Discs
  • Paraplegia or Quadriplegia

(3) Brain Injuries — Brain Injuries range from extremely noticeable to very minor; however, despite the severity of the brain injury, it can affect your ability to perform a variety of daily tasks. Memory, motor function, or other complicated neurological processes may be compromised or fully destroyed.

(4) Burn Injuries

Amarillo  personal injury attorneys and Amarillo wrongful death attorneys represent clients, in claims involving  wide range of burn injuries which can happen anytime, anywhere in Amarillo and they can change a person's life forever, leaving painful, difficult-to-mask scar tissue and, many times, requiring painful skin grafts.
