What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is typically considered an injury that causes an individual to suffer long-term or permanent consequences. Individuals may not be able to return to their old lives. Some people may never be able to work again.
Catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Severe fractures
- Loss of vision
- Loss of hearing
- Internal injuries/organ damage
How Can a Lawyer Help?
A skilled personal injury attorney can help a catastrophically injured person by obtaining financial compensation from the party or parties who are legally responsible for causing the injury. This type of legal work is extremely important in cases involving serious injuries. The injured person may have no other source of income for the rest of his or her life. The money recovered in a catastrophic injury claim may need to provide for all of his or her current and future needs related to the injury.
How Do You Project Future Needs?
Our law firm works with a Certified Life Care Planner to assess the financial needs of our seriously injured clients. The planner will document all accident-related needs, which may include current and future costs associated with:
- Doctor visits
- Physical therapy
- Motorized wheel chairs
- Handicapped van
- Alterations to the home to make it handicapped accessible
- Personal care attendants
How Do You Determine the Costs?
Once we have established our client’s needs, we will work with a forensic accountant to assess the total cost involved. Then we zealously pursue maximum compensation for the full extent of the damages. These damages include pain and suffering and lost earning capacity as well as current and future medical needs.
It is extremely important to wait until the full extent of your injuries becomes known before filing a catastrophic injury claim. Once your case is concluded, you cannot go back to ask for additional compensation.
