Fall is embarrassing for everyone. That sudden loss of control brings the emotion of embarrassment, the release of adrenaline and an extreme desire to return to minimize embarrassment. Severely wounds got a drop and tried to “walk” as they say in sports, only to find that the pain doesn’t go away.
Because a person could get up when a fall injury was so bad
The blood filled with the same chemicals after a fall that when he threatened the life of a person. The fight-or-flight response was generated by the fall. The severity of injuries do not occur immediately. There are stories of victims of amputation standing up that weren’t there, is no longer completely unaware of the extent of their injuries. The extent of injuries from a slip and fall may not occur for days, weeks or even months.
Pain is at the peak when it starts healing. The adrenaline wears off and starts the inflammation at the site of injury. Inflammation irritates the pain receptors. The first thing that most do is to mask the pain with medications. The second thing is the compensation for the loss of the ability to move freely without pain. It may take a considerable amount of time before you really notice the total loss caused by an old injury.
Head injuries can lead to a lifetime of headaches, although no cognitive impairment was immediately apparent to the victim or friends and family. Back injuries are insidious. Some permanent debilitating pain that result has no sign that can be seen. Other back injuries can flare up only when the victim exceeds new limits due to an injury sustained in a slip and fall accident.
The difficulties faced when trying to damage
A jury can easily see as an amputation is a handicap when damages are sought. If the amputation was due to a fall caused by negligence of the owner, a jury is not happy about the granting of a settlement to compensate for loss of income, medical expenses and pain and suffering. However, the invisible wounds that cause chronic pain makes it more difficult to prove the extent of the loss.
A woman who used to work double shifts to support herself and family may, following a fall, will now be able to work only part-time because of the pain that won’t go away. Organs may end up being permanently harmed by prescription drugs that are intended to help the victim to be productive through the pain. The loss of affection by a spouse who has changed emotionally due to suddenly experiencing persistent chronic pain cannot be calculated on a spreadsheet, nor can it be seen in the eyes of any jury.
No lesion heals like new. Every wound leaves behind a brand can be seen or not. A simple slip and fall forever can change a life. The embarrassment that the victim suffers when the fall continues in their embarrassment in admitting the true scope of the damage who lived after the fall.
