Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases Handled by our Law Firm
Motor vehicle accidents can result in a range of injuries. However, there are times when the crash is so severe that a victim suffers extensive debilitating injuries. A catastrophic injury is one that has the power to completely alter a victim’s quality of life. These types of personal injuries often involve trauma to the head, spine or limb loss. They can also severely affect a victim’s ability to work and provide for loved ones. Those who sustain a catastrophic injury may be left with life-long side-effects that render them incapable of performing even the simplest of daily tasks. Moreover, the cost of medical expenses and rehabilitation can be considered catastrophic in their own right.

Dedicated to Providing You and Your Loved Ones With the Support You Need
Our team has built a vast network of doctors, therapists, physical therapists and vocational rehabilitation professionals to assist us with proving the extent and nature of your injuries. We also consult with economists who provide us with accurate estimates for future earning losses resulting from your disability.
We recognize that waiting until the resolution of a case to pay your bills is not always feasible, so we work with you to identify sources of temporary income and disability benefits. Our attorneys also negotiate with doctors and hospitals to accept delayed payments until after your case has settled and to reduce your total bills so you receive more of the settlement amount.
Calculating Lifetime Costs for Catastrophic Injuries
The financial consequences of a catastrophic injury can be devastating. Without just compensation, many families would lose their savings as well as the wage-earning capacity of the injured person. Often, the victim needs lifelong support and medical care and the family needs funds to cover those lifetime costs.
Our accident law firm considers the full range of damages you are entitled to. We think far into the future to make sure you have access to the vital care and services you need to improve your chances of recovery and your quality of life.
Depending on your injuries, your attorney might consider these factors when calculating damages:
- Urgent medical care in the immediate aftermath of your trauma
- Lifetime costs of receiving future medical care for your injuries and potential complications
- Income that accounts for your diminished earning capacity
- Loss of your loved one’s income so she or he can care for you
- Professional home aid and nursing services
- Equipment and tools that help you live with your disability
- Home improvements for the accommodation of the disability
- Mobility aids, such as wheelchairs and railing, for paralysis or amputation injuries
- Special communication equipment that accommodates hearing or sight impairment
- Pain, suffering and loss of your enjoyment of life
