The Effects of Catastrophic Injuries

When someone suffers a catastrophic injury, the results can be extremely expensive and painful. These types of injuries may alter the course of your life, affecting brain activity, bodily functions, and ultimately impacting your career and your family.

Many people who suffer catastrophic injuries require recurring medical visits, physical therapy, costly medication, mobility aids (like wheelchairs), in-home care, or therapy.

Catastrophic injuries can occur anywhere, but they are often the result of serious car accidents, truck accidents, slip and fall injuries, assault, or work-related injuries.

Some common types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Partial or full paralysis
  • Severe burns
  • Amputation
  • Bone fractures, especially in children
  • Nerve damage
  • Loss of vision or hearing

Any of these injuries could seriously alter the course of your life. If you or someone you love suffered a catastrophic injury due to another’s negligence or carelessness, contact our firm for legal help.

Can I Sue For Emotional Distress?

Oftentimes when a person experiences a trauma such as a catastrophic injury, there may be lasting emotional distress which hinders the person's daily life. If you are experiencing emotional distress after being injured, you may want to take legal action in order to receive the compensation that you require for your physical and/or mental healing.

How Can I Prove Emotional Distress?

In order to have a strong case for emtional distresss, you will need to provide proof of the ways in which your distress is hindering your daily life, your ability to function and your overall wellbeing. Additionally, your family and friends may need to testify on your behalf of your emtional distress.

Seeking Maximum Compensation After an Accident

Many of the accidents that cause catastrophic injuries are preventable. Whether you were injured in a car accident involving a drunk driver or harmed in a slip and fall accident involving hazardous and poorly-maintained flooring, it is important that you seek justice for your injury. Suffering a catastrophic injury can cause a serious toll on you and your family.

Most people are unable to return to work after suffering a catastrophic injury, which can be very hard for their families, especially if the injured party is the main breadwinner of the household. Even if the injured person is able to return to work, their injuries might seriously affect their quality of life and could cause intense physical pain.

Whatever you are suffering, we want to help. Catastrophic injuries are extremely damaging and expensive, and we want to help you seek maximum compensation from the liable party. At our firm, we work on a “no recovery, no fee” policy. If our catastrophic injury attorney does not win a settlement for you, you don’t pay us a dime. If you are bedridden or hospitalized because of your injury, we are available to come to you to discuss your next step.
