Common Types of Personal Injuries
A personal injury incident can result in a variety of injuries to you or your loved one. Some of these injuries may be minor. However, there are a number of injuries that can require lengthy hospital stays, weeks and months of rehabilitation and therapy, and can permanently limit or affect your work and life. These injuries can include:
Fractures and Broken Bones
Fractures and broken bones, which are often sustained in falls, trips and slips, and motor vehicle crashes. The older a person is, the longer these injuries can take to heal. Depending on the severity of the fracture, a person may require therapy services and can miss a significant amount of time from work.
Spinal Cord and Neck Damage
Spinal cord and neck damage, which can occur as the result of falls, trips and slips, motor vehicle crashes, and incidents occurring while engaging in recreational activities like skiing or swimming. An injury to the spinal cord or neck can result in lifelong limitations.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
raumatic brain injuries (TBI), which occur as the result of a sudden and violent impact to the head. A severe car crash can cause a TBI, as well as a fall, being hit on the head by a dropped object, and any other similar incident resulting in a blow to the head. Like spinal cord and neck injuries, these injuries can result in lifelong disability.
Cuts, Lacerations, Punctures and Abrasions
Cuts, lacerations, punctures and abrasions, which are all typically sustained in a car or motorcycle crash, or any other time the skin is rubbed against a rough or sharp surface. These injuries are particularly prone to scarring and infection.

Investigating Personal Injuries Requires Resources
Even where it may appear that your injuries were “clearly” caused by the actions of another, a successful personal injury lawsuit takes careful investigation and investment of time and resources. At Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C., we know what it takes to win your personal injury case and will dedicate our time and knowledge to assembling the evidence you need to be successful.
Eyewitnesses often play an integral part in most personal injury lawsuits. For instance, an eyewitness who observed your car crash can provide important details about the other driver’s behavior before and after the crash. Other witnesses such as accident reconstructionists, engineers, doctors, and similar professionals are also used in many cases to prove that the defendant caused your injuries through his or her carelessness or to show the extent of your injuries.
Just as important as witness testimony is other evidence. A speedy and thorough investigation is often necessary to identify and preserve as much evidence pertaining to your incident as possible. This evidence can include safety logs, photographs, written statements by witnesses, audio or video recordings, medical records, and the results of any laboratory tests performed on a person’s blood or other bodily fluid. In car and truck crash cases, it is beneficial to locate and preserve the “black boxes” from the vehicles involved as these hold important information about the vehicles just before the crash.
It is one thing to know what people and evidence need to be located and obtained; actually doing so takes dedication, time and finances. When you hire the Mercer County personal injury attorneys at Cohen, Placitella & Roth, P.C., we will devote ourselves to winning your case. We have the knowledge and financial resources necessary to succeed. Do not take a chance with your personal injury case.
