Spinal Cord Injuries
Breast Implant Injuries
Breast implants are not without their risks, and some women have experienced serious injuries as a result of their implants. In some cases, the breast implant injury is due to a rupture, causing pain and swelling. In other cases, the surrounding tissue can become infected or damaged.
When a bone is fractured, it means that the continuous flow of force along the bone has been disrupted from blunt force trauma. This can happen due to a direct blow, sudden twisting movement, or fall onto a hard surface. In some cases, the fractured bone may even be shattered into multiple pieces. A smashed bone equates to a crush injuries, causing additional health complications. Fractures can also be complicated is sustained to areas such as the skull, sternum, or spine.

The Important of Hiring a Female Personal Injury Lawyer
Scarring and Disfigurement Injuries: Serious personal injury events often leave women with unique scarring that can stand as constant reminders of the physical and emotional pain experienced in the accident. In most cases, a scar excision, skin graft, or additionally advanced technique from a plastic surgeon can greatly improve the appearance of scars and blend the area in with the surrounding skin tone and texture.
Attorney Brit Mitchell understands the sensitivities of women dealing with unsightly scarring and disfigurement after experiencing traumatic events that require surgery or lacerations that poorly healed. Brit Mitchell regularly forces insurance companies to provide clients full compensation in claims that include scarring so that the costs associated with a plastic surgeon's treatment is included in any settlement or verdict.
Traumatic Brain Injury Accidents: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as “a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head, or penetrating head injury.” Of the nearly 2 million tbi-related injuries that occur annually in the United States, studies show that the men and women are affected differently, female-specific effects include the hormonal changes often following TBI that can lead to osteoporosis, along with increased complications multi-tasking. Women are also more prone to report emotional effects following personal injury events that cause traumatic brain injuries.
Pregnancy Complications: Personal injury accidents can cause routine pregnancies to become high-risk as a result of the impact and trauma experienced to a women’s body. Attorney Brit Mitchell comes from a medical background and understand the possible complications pregnant mother’s are susceptible to, including:
Miscarriages. When a female client is injured in a vehicle collision or similar incident causing her to sustain a forceful impact during her first trimester, the resulting trauma can cause her to lose the baby.
Birthing defects. Sometimes, the impact experienced in the personal injury event causes direct injury to the baby, or a premature birth to result which can lead to serious physical injuries or bone fractures.
Placental abruption. When female clients suffer abdominal trauma it sometimes causes the placenta to partially or fully disconnect from the uterine wall. Clients suffering from placental abruption after a personal injury accident suffer abdominal pain, lumbar pains, vaginal bleeding, and premature delivery. Additionally serious complications that can result include:
Hysterectomy. In cases where the bleeding continues after delivery, a mother may require hysterectomy. This procedure extends the healing time and also prevents her from being able to birth children in the future.
Cesarean section. Placental abruption can also lead to significant blood loss, necessitating a cesarean section to save the mother’s life.
Brain damage to the Baby. The placenta provides oxygen to the unborn baby’s brain, so any abruption results in a loss of oxygen which causes cognitive problems and physical disabilities.
Damaged Breast Implant Injuries: More often than expected, women suffer ruptured breast implants after a car accident or pedestrian accident after experiencing direct trauma to the breast. In some the failure of a seat belt to engage during a crash causes a woman's body to travel forward and collide with the steering wheel, airbag, or other parts of the vehicle. Saline breast implants injuries after an automobile accident in Texas are more easy to detect and result from deflation over the course of a day or week following the accident.
The saline is absorbed into the body and generally safely absorbed. When silicone implants are rupture after a personal injury event, many women do not feel any symptoms and only detect changes if the silicone gel escapes the fiber capsule, and causes lumps to form in the breast, decreased breast size, hard lumps, unevenness, pain or tenderness, swelling, burning, or changes in sensations.
Most of our female clients would never feel comfortable sending pictures of their damaged implants to a male attorney, Brit Mitchell understands this and has every female client send photos, mammogram results, CT scans, ultrasound records directly to her, privately.
As a female, Brit Mitchell has more than just a medical understanding of pregnancy complications, she is also attune to emotional and psychological experience of women suffering from pregnancy complications.
