Severe personal injuries have long-term effects ranging from loss of mobility to chronic pain.

Is there a difference, legally speaking, between "personal injury" and "severe personal injury?"

The short answer is yes, there is a difference.

Severe personal injuries typically involve the need for surgery, maybe multiple surgeries, months of complete loss of ability to work, loss of mobility, and isolation.

With severe personal injuries, the long-term effects of a severe personal injury often last for years, perhaps a lifetime. 


Every case is unique.
