Why You Need To Hire an Attorney With Experience Handling Catastrophic Injury Claims
These devastating injuries often happen suddenly without warning. They have a severe impact on the victim's life and on those of his or her loved ones. The victim may be subject to long-term suffering or a significantly shortened lifespan. In some cases, as when a bone heals improperly or if there was a childhood injury with long-term growth platelet issues, catastrophic injuries do not surface for many years.
The victim of a catastrophic injury may undergo years of rehabilitation. Side effects such as stress, anxiety, depression and even violent behavior are not uncommon. The victim may have trouble communicating. And the burden of expensive medical bills is exacerbated by a lifetime of lost earnings.
A qualified personal injury attorney can help you recover the maximum damages and compensation you or your loved one may be eligible for. Because injuries are often so severe, catastrophic injury lawsuits seek millions of dollars in damages. An experienced catastrophic injury attorney can also advise you on government benefits that may be available.
