Why You Need a Riverside Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
A catastrophic injury can carry a lifetime of physical, emotional, and financial burden. The cost of life-long medical care can be daunting. Catastrophic injuries often lead to the need for nursing care, alterations to the home environment, and custom prosthetics. The medical aspect of a catastrophic injury can range into the hundreds of thousands over the course of several months. This amount of compensation would not last an individual his or her lifetime, to say nothing of the overall lowered quality of life, and the pain and suffering associated with the injury.
Hiring an experienced Riverside accident attorney is very important to your future wellbeing and quality of life. Leaving your compensation up to chance, or worse, up to the insurance companies, is not going to be adequate when it comes to providing for your future.
What Makes an Injury Catastrophic?
Catastrophic injury may be defined as an injury that permanently prevents an individual from performing gainful work. It generally occurs suddenly and leaves the individual with permanent disabilities that he or she must deal with for the rest of his or her life. This can put a serious strain on the victim’s family emotionally and financially.
Common types of catastrophic injuries include the following:
Traumatic brain injury: these types of brain injuries can result in permanent disability or in the worst cases, a vegetative state.
Limb amputation: the loss of a limb requires constant medical care and will permanently impact the quality of life.
Broken bones: cases of multiple broken bones can lead to medical complications and long-term damage.
Eye injury: the partial or full loss of vision will affect one’s life greatly. The extent of personal and financial loss must be considered when compensation is pursued.
Paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia): spinal cord injuries can leave one permanently paralyzed. In such a case every form of compensation must be fought for by an experienced personal injury attorney.
