Serious and Catastrophic Injuries
After some accident injuries, individuals make a full recovery and can go about their lives with no more than a bad memory. Other injuries, however, leave victims unable to ever resume a normal life. Serious and catastrophic injuries include all that involve permanent and life-changing damage. If you cannot go back to work or resume your typical daily activities after an accident, you have suffered a catastrophic injury.
The team at STEINLAW represents those who experience serious injuries due to someone else’s negligence. We understand the various ways serious and catastrophic injuries can alter an individual’s life. Many of our serious injury clients require constant or nearly constant care and will face medical expenses associated with their condition for the rest of their lives. Our job is to take away some of the financial burdens associated with these injuries and to help victims and their loved ones find justice and a sense of peace after such tragic incidents.
Types of Serious and Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can arise from many different types of accidents, including workplace accidents, car accidents, and slip and fall accidents. Injuries that fall under the category of serious or catastrophic include:
- Traumatic brain injuries that cause permanent and life-altering changes
- Spinal cord injuries, such as paralysis
- Severe burns
- Specific and permanent injuries affecting certain body parts or organs
- Illnesses and injuries arising from exposure to hazardous substances
When these injuries are so serious that they completely alter a person’s life, the victims have the right to seek compensation from those responsible. STEINLAW pursues cases against all possible defendants, including product manufacturers, employers, companies, and other individuals.
While some catastrophic injuries are immediately apparent, others may take time to manifest. To protect your right to file a claim, contact an attorney as soon as you receive a catastrophic injury diagnosis. The attorneys at STEINLAW will go over the facts with you and help you make an informed decision about pursuing a personal injury case.
Insurance and Catastrophic Injury Cases
Most personal injury cases involve liability insurance. Whether a careless driver or a product manufacturer caused your injury, insurance will likely play a role in the amount of compensation you can obtain. At STEINLAW, we know how to negotiate with insurance companies to secure fair compensation for our clients. You can count on our knowledgeable attorneys to focus on delivering the maximum compensation you deserve after suffering from a serious and permanent injury.
What Makes Serious and Catastrophic Injury Cases Different?
To secure a positive outcome, our team must prove the extent of your injuries and carefully calculate the financial required for your losses. These cases involve determining financial compensation amounts for your past, current, and future losses associated with the injury. In serious and catastrophic injury cases, damages awarded tend to run much higher than in typical personal injury cases.
Our firm has access to the medical experts, accident experts, and financial analysts needed to build a fair case and secure maximum compensation on your behalf. We have the expertise and skills needed to represent anyone who suffers from a serious and life altering injury. Every case is different based on an individual’s earning potential, age, and prognosis.
