A permanent injury is a physical or mental damage which will restrict the employment and/or other activities of a person for the rest of his or her life. Contact a Brooklyn permanent injury attorney if you or a family member have suffered a permanent injury. People suffer serious injuries every day, and most are able to heal and return to their life the way it was before the accident. However, sometimes recovery does not necessarily always lead back to the familiar, and sometimes when an injury is serious enough, the consequences are permanent. A serious personal injury can be life-changing. Many victims can no longer work or enjoy favorite activities, and everyday life is one challenge after another.
