Back and Spinal Cord Injuries Every injury to the back can cause a spinal injury resulting in temporary or permanent paralysis. The injured party is left to cope with months even years of physiotherapy and has to undergo more than one surgery. Even after the chances of being “the old self” again are very low and depend on the severity of the injury.

Amputations Losing a limb is everyone’s worst nightmare. Without it life is just never the same. Amputations can occur due to a severe injury or if caught under a heavy object. However there are also cases of medical malpractice that involved amputations.

Eye Injury Any injury to the eye can lead to permanent tissue and retina damage causing the individual to become partially or completely blind. Reconstructive surgeries are an option but even then the chances of regaining full sight are extremely low and these surgeries tend to cost a small fortune.
