Cases that involve massive injuries often mean that the harm suffered is life-changing, which means an extended period (or even a lifetime) of lost wages and medical expenses. Securing a truly complete amount of compensation means obtaining an award for multiple different types of damages and may mean suing multiple parties. Giving the court all of the evidence needed to prove the full extent of your wide array of injuries is essential to getting all of the compensation you deserve. Additionally, being able to identify all of the defendants who should stand trial in your injury case is another key aspect of ensuring that you can recover the full amount that the court says you should receive. All of these things are areas in which the skill and experience of a knowledgeable Pennsylvania injury attorney may offer essential help to your case.
An example of a case involving multiple injuries and numerous types of harm was the accident suffered by Tommy. In the case, reported by LehighValleyLive.com, the worker was a man whose job involved installing telecommunications equipment on cell towers. While the man was working on a tower in the Allentown area on one June day, the ladder rung that was supporting him gave way. The man had received a safety harness and had tied himself off. Unfortunately, that rung didn’t hold either, and the man plummeted 50 feet to the ground below.
In Tommy’s case, he suffered multiple fractures to his pelvis, spine, arm, and legs as a result of his fall, according to the report. His injuries were so severe that he spent months in a coma. That almost inevitably meant that the amount of past medical expenses he incurred from his hospitalization was extremely large.
