Catastrophic Injuries in Palm Springs

What constitutes a catastrophic injury?

When an accident is so severe that it causes you permanent and difficult to treat injuries, it can be classified as catastrophic in nature. Catastrophic injuries are those that have created trauma, pain and suffering, and disability from which it will take months, possibly years, to recover. In the worst case scenario, you are at risk of never fully recovering. Because these injuries have the potential to adversely affect the rest of your life, or at least many years to come, they are classified as a catastrophic injury as distinguished from any other type of injury.

Debilitating, life-altering and often extraordinarily painful, catastrophic injuries are the subjects of many legal actions. Victims of car accidents, bicycle accidents, construction accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle accidents, defective products accidents, dog bite injuries, and other negligence caused accident victims, are all susceptible to being injured to a catastrophic degree. The same is true for burn victims, medical malpractice victims and even abuse victims. If you are suffering from any one of the following types of injuries you may have reason to make a claim:

  • Disfigurement caused from burns and / or scarring
  • Vision loss
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Orthopedic injury
  • Crushing injury
  • Brain injury
  • Organ damage
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Acoustic trauma
  • Blunt force trauma

Take Legal Action Now!

Attending to your catastrophic injury from a medical standpoint may not be enough to relieve you of the pain and suffering for which you are now feeling. In addition, you will need to take legal action as well. For many victims of such disastrous accidents, pursuing their accident legally is the only way they have of securing the financial means necessary to pay for the costly expenses of recovery, i.e. surgery, reconstructive repair, physical therapy, medication, etc. Included in the legal action brought against the defendant(s) being pursued in your case, you can seek various forms of damage and loss recovery. Specifically, it will be important that you and your attorney take the means necessary to ensure that you are rightfully compensated for your pain and suffering as well as the past and future medical bills that were caused by the accident and injury. You may recover damages for past and future lost wages or business income resulting from your injuries and disability. The bottom line is that the innocent victim of a negligently caused catastrophic injury and the immediate family of the patient need experienced and proven successful legal representation. Insurance companies will not treat you fairly and do not have your best interest at heart.
