What’s a catastrophic injury? A catastrophic injury is typically one that causes injuries so severe that the victim’s life is forever changed. These victims typically cannot work due to what has happened. They may require a lifetime of medical and personal care. Some are not capable of caring for themselves.
These victims need extensive medical help, and help from loved ones, too. But they may also need the help of a catastrophic injury attorney.
Below are just a few of these catastrophic injuries that can have a life-changing impact:
- Brain injuries
- Head trauma
- Spinal injuries
- Neck injuries
Who is Liable?
Determining who is legal accountable for an accident is not always a simple task. You should speak with an attorney about your options.
Speaking generally, the following parties may be held accountable in certain circumstances when an injury has occurred:
- The owner of poorly maintained property that causes injury
- The employer whose employee suffered a catastrophic injury at work
- The driver of an automobile that causes an accident
- The driver of a tractor-trailer that causes an accident, as well as the trucking company itself
- The manufacturer of a defective product
Determining liability is a matter of law, and it is different in every case. One thing we can assure is that, if you hire the Flood Law Firm, we will vigorously pursue action against any party that bears fault for what has happened to you.
Why Hire a Catastrophic Injury Attorney?
These sorts of catastrophic injuries typically happen suddenly and without warning. In an instant, everything changes for not only the victim, but the victim’s family as well.
The suffering is physical, financial and emotional. The nature of these injuries typically requires expensive medical care, often ongoing. No work means no wages, posing an additional burden for a family.
Some families in this position aren’t sure how they can make ends meet. That’s why they should demand accountability and seek compensation if another party is responsible for the injury that has caused all this harm.
A catastrophic injury attorney may be able to secure compensation to cover:
- Hospital stays
- Past and ongoing treatment and rehabilitation
- Wages you lost because you were unable to work
- Future wages you will not receive because you are unable to work
- Emotional pain and suffering
