Common Questions About Catastrophic Injuries
It is understandable to have many questions after suffering a catastrophic injury. Below are just some of the frequently asked questions we receive from potential clients. Should you have any more questions, contact our office for a free consultation.
What Can People with Catastrophic Injuries Seek Compensation For?
When someone else’s negligence causes a person to sustain catastrophic injuries, the injured person may be entitled to seek compensation from the responsible party. If you have sustained any of the above catastrophic injuries, then you may be entitled to seek compensation for hospitalization, medical expenses, rehabilitative care, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Since catastrophic injuries are permanent, a person can also seek compensation for loss of future earning capacity, future medical care, life care, and future pain and suffering.
Who Is Liable for Catastrophic Injuries?
Any individual, employer, corporation, or entity that acted negligently can be held liable for catastrophic injuries. For example, if a property developer failed to provide a safe working environment for construction workers, they could be liable for catastrophic injuries sustained on the job-site. If an amusement park operator failed to ensure that its rides were properly maintained, then the park operator would be liable for injuries you experienced while on the ride. Or even a third scenario, if you suffered chemical or electrical burns due to your employer’s failure to provide you with adequate protective equipment, then your employer may be liable for your catastrophic injuries.
Sometimes finding out who is truly liable for your injuries may be a difficult question that requires in-depth investigation and research. That is why our catastrophic injury lawyers have the expertise and resources needed to quickly ascertain any responsible parties. If you have any doubts as to who may be liable for your injuries, schedule a free consultation with one of our catastrophic injury lawyers today.
I suffered catastrophic injuries on someone else’s property, but I don’t want to sue them. What can I do?
Not wanting to sue a property owner is understandable, especially if you have a good relationship with them, aside from this incident. Thankfully, you can file a claim for your catastrophic injuries with the property owner’s insurance instead. While litigation may be required if the insurance company is refusing to offer fair compensation, any legal action would only be taken with your express authorization. Our catastrophic injury lawyers can walk you through the entire claims process before you make the decision to move forward.
My spouse suffered a brain injury in an accident. How much compensation can they receive?
Every case is unique. How much compensation someone can receive will depend on a myriad of factors, including the severity of the injury, other party’s negligence, extent of prior medical treatment, and the need for future care. Our catastrophic injury lawyers can help you seek compensation for things like hospital bills, physical therapy, speech therapy, cognitive therapy, occupational therapy, lost wages, pain and suffered, and reduced earning capacity.
The cost of long-term care typically needed when a loved one has suffered a brain injury tends to be significant. This is why you need an experienced team of catastrophic injury lawyers to help you prepare a comprehensive claim. Do not hesitate, speak with one of our skilled catastrophic injury lawyers today. We can discuss your rights, and help you determine the best course of action.
