BACK INJURY
Eight of ten adults will suffer from some form of back pain during his or her lifetime. As a result, back pain is the second leading cause of work absences.
Back pain can be caused by falls, automobile collisions and workplace accidents. Back pain can be excruciating and disabling in nature.
Fortunately, conservative treatments such as bed rest, brief absences from work, medications, physical therapy sessions, etc., can effectively treat the symptoms of back pain and discomfort.
In some instances, the injury victim's pain and discomfort does not resolve after conservative care. Sometimes the patient will experience pain down the leg or in the buttock region. In those cases, the patient should seek immediate medical care from a back specialist such as an orthopedic physician, a neurologist or neurosurgeon. These physicians may not be satisfied with x-ray studies because these types of radiological tests do not show all conditions that may exist along the spinal column. An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) test or a CAT scan (Computerized Tomography) allows the doctor to evaluate the patient thoroughly and to render a proper diagnosis to the patient.

EASTON PA BRAIN INJURY
Over 50,000 people die from brain injuries annually and 75,000 - 95,000 people will be permanently injured this year. 50% of all brain injury cases are caused by motor vehicle accidents.
Brain injury is caused by three major factors: Bruising, Tearing, and Swelling. Bruising is caused by the brain hitting against the skull when the body comes to a sudden stop. (i.e. car accidents) Tearing is caused by the head jerking forward and backwards very violently. Swelling is caused by the agents the body sends to a certain part of the body when it is injured. Since the skull is not flexible the fluids build up within the brain putting pressure on it.
If you have been in a major accident and suspect brain injury get to the emergency room immediately. If the accident was due to another's negligence contact a personal injury lawyer.

BROKEN BONES
The average person can expect to have two fractured bones over a lifetime. A broken bone is caused by a sudden and powerful force exerted to the bone. Fractures can be as harmless as a tiny hairline crack or as dangerous as the bone puncturing the skin. After a moderate to severe automobile accident broken bones are common especially in the leg area. If you suspect you have a broken bone get medical aid as soon as possible. If your injury was due to the negligence of another person, contact a personal injury lawyer.

BURN INJURIES
Every year 1.5 million people suffer from burn injuries. 7,000 of these people die.
Burns are categorized into three major classifications:
First Degree Burns - The least severe of the three. Causes ranging from sun burn to short contact with something hot. This type of burn only effects the first layer of skin and causes redness and slight pain.
Second Degree Burn - Causes range from contact with something hot to exposure to an open flame. This type of burn effects the second layer of skin and causes blistering in the burn area.
Third Degree Burn- The most severe of the three. Mainly caused by prolonged exposure to very hot surfaces or open flame. This type of burn effects the tissue underneath the skin and causes the area to turn black and crack open.
If you have been burned as a result of a car accident or defective product call a personal injury lawyer.

RSD
Reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD) is a chronic condition associated with severe burning pain, pathological changes in bone and skin, tissue swelling, excessive sweating and extreme sensitivity to touch. It can occur after injuries from high-velocity impacts. One visible sign of R.S.D near the site of injury is warm, shiny red skin that later becomes cool and bluish. The pain is out of proportion to the severity of the injury and gets worse over time. Eventually the joints become stiff from disuse, and the skin, muscles, and bone atrophy. The symptoms of RSD vary depending on the severity and duration.
RSD is treated with a variety of drugs. A good prognosis of RSD can usually be made if it is detected within the first three months of the symptoms.
If you were injured as a result of an accident and suffer from RSD call an Easton PA personal injury lawyer.

Compensation may be paid out for work induced injury, illness or diseases. Compensation will not be paid when the injury is self-inflicted or caused by employee negligence. Intoxication leading to injury or death will also not be covered.
