Lung Injury

Minnesota Lung Injury  Lawyer

You can’t live without your lungs because they help sustain your life. If they don’t function properly, then your quality of life is compromised due to difficulty breathing. When you have difficulty breathing, you could suffer brain damage and other organs are not going to get the oxygen that they need to properly function.

If you have been involved in an accident that was due to someone else’s negligence and you sustained a lung injury, you may be able to seek compensation from them for the monetary damages that have been done to you. To find out if you have a case, it is important to talk to an experienced Minneapolis personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Thorough & Skilled Representation

There are some lung injuries that are the direct result of genetics, poor living habits, and smoking. Other times, lung injuries are related to the work environment and this can lead to cancer. This is an example of a lung injury being due to the negligence of someone else.

Another example of a lung injury being the direct result of someone else’s negligence is a car accident. The impact from the wreck can cause the injury. The victim can hold the reckless driver responsible for the monetary damages resulting from the injury. A person who has been stabbed in an assault and experienced a punctured lung may also be able to hold the person who assaulted them accountable for their injuries.

No matter the cause, serious complications, such as pulmonary embolism, can occur. Pulmonary embolism can also occur because of certain medications. Yasmin and Avandia are examples of medications that have caused pulmonary embolism that has either resulted in lung issues or death.
