How do these injuries happen?
Serious injuries are not all going to look the same, but they can include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Bone fractures
- Loss of or damage to a bodily organ
- Dismemberment or amputation
- Other injuries that inhibit a person’s daily activities
- Loss of a fetus
- Significant disfigurement
There are various ways that these injuries occur. Today, we want to briefly review some common serious injury causes, but this list is by no means exhaustive.
- Car And Truck Accidents: During the latest reporting year in California, there was more than 270,000 vehicle crashes injuries. Out of those, more than 13,000 were considered serious injuries, often caused due to drunk and distracted drivers.
- Pedestrian And Bicycle Crashes: There were more than 27,000 combined pedestrian and bicyclist injuries during the latest reporting year in California. Nearly every pedestrian and bicycle crash result in an injury.
- Premises Injuries: Slip and fall incidents are the most common premises injury, and they send around one million people to the ER each year. Other premises injuries are often the result of poor maintenance or careless employees.
- Medical Mistakes: Researches say that medical mistakes are the third leading cause of death in the country and that millions are injured due to these mistakes each year. Some common medical mistakes include medication errors, infections acquired in the hospital, surgical errors, misdiagnosis, birth injuries, and more.
- Defective Products: Unfortunately, faulty products make it to the market all the time, often due to poor design, a manufacturing error, or a problem with the product label. Sometimes these products are recalled before they cause injuries, but often they are not.
- Workplace Accidents: Employers must ensure the safety of their workers by providing the proper training and equipment necessary.
- Dog Bites: Approximately 4.6 million dog bites occur each year, and the CDC says that one of every five bites requires medical attention.
