The term "Diminished Quality of Life" in auto accident and personal injury cases refers to not being able to physically or mentally experience life in a normal manner as you did prior to your injuries.
The diminished quality of life may be long-term or permanent.
The term "Permanent" has a pretty definitive and obvious meaning, but what about "Long-term?" In general, the average injury may take between 6 to 12 weeks for an individual to recover. This time frame may vary based on age and other medical conditions. Due to various factors, some may argue that a long-term recovery is six months or more.
So now that we have shed a little light on the difference between "long-term" and "permanent", let's take a deeper dive into what may be considered "Diminished Quality of Life."
Diminished quality of life may involve:
- Permanent or temporary paralysis;
- Loss of limbs or appendages, or amputation;
- Temporary or permanent loss of mobility or range of motion impairment;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Scarring or disfigurement;
- Injuries where more than one surgeries are necessary;
- Temporary or permanent neurological impairment injury;
- Injuries that cause constant pain and discomfort;
- Injuries that make it extremely difficult or impossible to return to work or perform your normal work duties and activities;
- Temporary or permanent loss of vision or hearing;
- and other injuries that make it impossible to physically or mentally return to living life the way you did prior to your injuries.
