Q: What would be considered a permanent injury?
A: A permanent injury would be one that would not get better despite reasonably available medical procedures. If your injuries could be healed or at least substantially improved with surgery, then they would not be considered “permanent.”
Stated differently, an injured person has a duty to mitigate the extent of his injuries. So if there are reasonably available medical procedures available that could make you better, but you refuse to avail yourself of them, you will likely not be allowed as much in damages.
