Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Catastrophic injuries are those that occur suddenly and result in tragic damage. To qualify medically as a catastrophic injury, certain conditions must be met: living in a vegetative state for at least a month following the incident, experiencing a severe upper or lower disability for six months or more after the incident, or enduring a lower moderate disability for over a year post-incident.

These injuries are devastating and can significantly disrupt an individual’s life and can impede their ability to work and enjoy activities they once loved. Such injuries can include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, severe burns, disabling limb fractures, organ damage, and hearing or vision loss.

From a devastating car accident to a work-place injury, you could experience an accident that alters your quality of life forever. Activities that can result in catastrophic injury are:

  • Trucking Accidents

  • Product defects

  • Medical Malpractice

  • Slipping and/or falling

These injuries are not only devastating on a physical and emotional level but also present unique legal challenges. Catastrophic injury lawsuits are complex, requiring a deep understanding of not only the law, but also medical terminology, future care needs, and the calculation of damages for both economic and non-economic losses.

The severity of these injuries often means victims will need long-term or even life-long medical care, rehab, and support. In essence, when dealing with catastrophic injuries, you’re not just facing a medical challenge, but a legal one as well. And while the journey may be difficult, with the right legal aid, victims can secure the resources they need to adapt and move forward.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help Me After my Catastrophic Injury?

When faced with a catastrophic injury, one that causes permanent disability, disfigurement, or even death, the path to recovery can be daunting. The cumulation of medical bills, loss of income, and the need for long-term rehabilitation can pose a significant financial burden on the victim and their family. In these situations, a lawyer can be an amazing tool and can deal with all legal necessities to ensure your compensation.

Personal Injury lawyers should work meticulously to gather evidence, build a compelling case, negotiate with insurance companies, and litigate when necessary. It is Broadwing Legal’s goal to ensure that their clients receive the maximum compensation they deserve. Using their knowledge and expertise in legal actions such as filing your claim, reviewing your medical records, and drafting your settlement documents, they strive to ease the burden of their client’s injuries to the best of their legal ability.
