What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries often force a victim to experience a permanent disability for the full remainder of his/her life. In addition, catastrophic injuries can contribute to financial, physical, mental and emotional distress. A catastrophic injury lawyer can negotiate and advocate on the behalf of catastrophic injury victims, allowing them to receive rightful compensation for their ongoing suffering.
What Are Non-Economic Damages?
If your catastrophic injury occurs as a result of another person’s wrongdoing and/or negligent behavior, you may be entitled to compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages are typically outlined by paper and documents (such as medical bills) that illustrate the current and future financial burdens of the victim as a result of the injury. Meanwhile, non-economic damages are not as easy to prove. Typically, they refer to general pain and suffering, emotional instability, and even stress. Because non-economic damages are generally difficult to obtain, you should contact an experienced catastrophic personal injury attorney to assist you.
Demonstrating the Impact and Detailing the Need
Any settlement or jury award for a catastrophic injury must last years or a lifetime to account for projected lost income, future surgery and medications, special vans or equipment, nursing care, home modifications and more. We hire a life care planner to determine the victim's various needs and retain a wide array of experts to translate those needs into dollar amounts.
Insurance adjusters and juries need to see the "big picture" of a how a serious injury affects every aspect of our client's life. We commonly assemble day-in-the-life videos showing the person before and after the accident, as well as other tools to drive the point home. Our personal injury lawyers are fully committed to full compensation for our clients.
