Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that have long-term serious effects. Catastrophic injuries can include, but are not limited to:
- Spinal cord injury causing paralysis
- Brain injuries resulting in loss of hearing or eyesight
- Severe burn injuries
- Damage to internal organs
- Loss of limb or broken bones
The physical, emotional and financial impact of a catastrophic injury can be devastating. These types of injuries can occur in a serious accident such as car accidents, work accidents, medical malpractice and more. You should not have to suffer the burdens caused by a catastrophic injury. Speak with an experienced Phoenix catastrophic injury lawyer from Witson Law to learn more about obtaining compensation.
To recover damages following an accident that caused catastrophic injury, you will need to prove that the party that caused your accident was negligent. In order to do this, you will need to show that you were owed a duty of care, and that duty was breached and caused your injury. It is important that you work with an experienced Phoenix personal injury attorney when going up against businesses and insurance companies. Never sign anything or accept a settlement before getting your own legal counsel. Your claim may be worth more than you think.
Damages in Catastrophic Injury Claims
Catastrophic injuries can lead to long-term medical needs, which can lead to massive financial burdens on the victim. In a catastrophic injury claim, a victim may be eligible for compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, punitive damages and more. Speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to assess your case and determine what damages you may be eligible for.
