What is a Tracheal Injury Exactly?
Any injury that occurs in or around the throat area could be considered a tracheal injury. Because the trachea – or windpipe – is so exposed‚ these kinds of injuries are common. Any blunt force trauma to the throat region can cause a tracheal injury‚ leaving a person gasping for air. And as many athletes know‚ the neck area is easily struck by flying objects.
What Kind of Compensation Could I Receive For my Tracheal Injury?
As with all personal injury claims‚ the kind of compensation available to you following a tracheal injury depends on the circumstances that led to your hospitalization in the first place. Were you hurt in a car‚ truck‚ or motorcycle collision? Or was this a work place injury? Was someone else responsible for the accident? And did you injury need extensive treatment. It’s impossible to determine exactly how much you may be able to pursue without the facts of your situation. Some of the more common damages covered by a successful claim include:
- Emergency medical care and transportation
- Surgeries and hospitalization
- Doctor and specialist supervision
- Pain and suffering
- Physical therapy
