Common Personal Injuries

Understanding Your Right to a Fair Recovery

An accident can change your life in an instant. One moment, everything is normal and the next, you’re facing serious injuries, ongoing medical care, and an uncertain future. Any accident can have devastating consequences and can lead to a wide range of injuries. If the accident that caused your injuries was the result of someone else’s negligent or wrongful conduct, you are entitled to seek financial compensation for your injury-related costs and damages.

At The Dixon Injury Firm, we represent victims who have suffered all types of injuries, including but not limited to:

We also represent those who have suffered catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. Regardless of the injuries you or your loved one has suffered, our St. Louis personal injury lawyers understand the challenges you are facing—and we know how to help.

What to Do If You Were Injured in an Accident

If you were involved in any type of accident or incident that caused you injury, the first thing you should do is seek proper medical attention. If necessary, call 911 or have someone else call 911 for you. If you do not require emergency attention, you should still see a doctor right away after the accident. You may not realize the true severity of your injuries—only a trained professional can properly evaluate your injuries and determine what course of treatment is most appropriate.

It’s also important to see a doctor after any accident in order to create a medical record of your injuries. This can be critical to the future success of your personal injury claim, as it proves the nature, extent, and severity of your injuries, as well as the required treatment. You should also keep all of your medical bills and any other records of payments you made during the course of treatment.

If you have been injured in an accident, be sure to follow all of your doctor’s orders regarding treatment and care. Attend follow-up appointments, take all prescribed medications as directed, and do everything your doctor recommends. This not only ensures your continued recovery and overall well-being, but it also proves that you were truly injured and did everything possible to heal.

Lastly, if you were injured and you believe someone else was to blame, reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney. You could have grounds to file a claim and seek compensation for your damages, such as your medical bills, lost wages, disability, future medical costs and lost earnings, and pain and suffering, among others.
