Often in such cases, I will hire our own expert, in addition to your treating doctors, to reinforce the fact that your injuries are real and that your treatment was in fact reasonable, medically necessary, and accident-related.Read More
The term catastrophic, from a personal point of view, is subjected to the person’s opinion. For example, you may think that a collarbone fracture is a catastrophic injury, while another person could consider amputation as catastrophic. Like all opinions, this one will change according to the person’s criteria.
When the victim has a family burden, getting compensation will help the family to coup the financial struggle. Additionally, it could be used to cover the victim’s lost wages.
Not only the victim’s working ability gets affected, but the concept of “normal life”, for him, is completely changed. For example, a survivor of a pedestrian accident gets one of his legs amputated. He used to go walking to work, he liked to go for a jog or a hike, and he likes to travel. Now, he has to learn either how to use crutches or a prosthetic leg to walk. Also, is less likely that he will continue to jog and hike as often as before. This is just a simple example of how the victim’s life is affected by catastrophic injuries.
All accidents have the potential to cause a catastrophic injury. But the truth is that certain situations enhance such potential. Most of the catastrophic injury claims are related to:
- Traffic accidents. Especially in motorcycle accidents.
- Work-related accidents.
- Drowning and swimming accidents.
- Injuries related to faulty medical products and wrongful medical treatment.
