A traumatic injury is a sudden physical injury which requires immediate medical attention. Traumatic injuries may require resuscitation and other intervention to save a person’s life, limbs, or other body parts.

In California, we have multiple trauma center designations, as defined by the CA Emergency Medical Services Authority (EMSA). Level I and level II trauma centers have similar personnel, services, and resource requirements with the greatest difference being that level I’s are research and teaching facilities.

Should I speak to a personal injury lawyer if I have experienced a traumatic injury?

If you or a loved one has experienced a traumatic injury as the result of a car accident or another person’s negligence, in addition to medical assistance, you will likely need legal assistance.

While an attorney is not needed in every case, if serious injuries are involved, retaining a caring and competent attorney is going to benefit you not only financially but in a variety of ways.
