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
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
- 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. Contact the legal team at Barry Regar APLC today, we
