There Are Two Main Injury Classifications
Broadly speaking, there are two main injury classifications. First are impact injuries, which are injures that cause when a person hits something or is hit by something in an accident. An example would be a person hitting their head on the steering wheel. Second are penetrating injuries, which involve any injury in which something penetrates the skin of the victim. These are often the result of broken glass.
Soft Tissue and Hard Tissue Injuries
Those classifications can be even further withered down to soft tissue and hard tissue injuries. A soft tissue injury is one that involves the soft parts of the body, such as your skin, muscle, or tendons. A burn injury or whiplash would be examples of soft tissue injuries. Hard tissue injuries are those that involve bones, such as fractures. In many cases, a person will experience both hard and soft tissue injuries during an accident.
How to Get Help Paying Your Medical Bills After an Accident
No matter where your injuries were, or how serious or minor they were, if they cost you money to be treated then you may be wondering how to get help paying those bills. At Law Offices of Fernando D. Vargas we highly recommend that you talk to a personal injury attorney to find out if you have grounds for a personal injury case.
If someone else was at fault for your accident, even if you were also partially at fault, then you may have a case. It may be tempting to accept a settlement as soon as possible to pay your medical bills, but many medical providers will accept a lien against your personal injury case and not require payment. This means that they will be paid out of your settlement but, in the meantime, you can continue to get treatment without worry about late fees or defaults.
