In Catastrophic Injury Cases, Recovering Sufficient Compensation Is Key

All injuries affect your life to some degree, but catastrophic injuries are life-changing. They typically result in permanent loss of function or disability. When a person suffers a catastrophic injury, it is critical that he or she receives full and fair compensation for past, current and future losses and expenses. In addition, the family will need compensation if the injury victim was a wage earner and/or if a wage-earning family member must stop working to become a caregiver.
You must have experienced, aggressive personal injury attorneys on your side in these cases.

As a firm of trial lawyers, we have the skill, resources and reputation to recover compensation in catastrophic injury cases.

Amputations And Other Catastrophic Injuries

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), an amputation is one of the most severe injuries a person can suffer. The permanent disability caused by amputations may mean injury victims cannot return to their job or earn a living wage. Depending on the type of amputation, they may be unable to care for themselves or their family. Some people will experience pain and other issues that require surgery and ongoing treatment. The medical care alone will cost more than most families can pay, even if they have health insurance.

In addition to amputations, catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Vision or hearing loss
  • Burn injuries

All of these injuries may result in a lifetime of medical treatment, daily care and lost income. People may also need compensation to modify their vehicles and homes to accommodate the injured family member.
