July 17, 2017 - Uncategorized
We get this question at our offices on a daily basis, “Do I really need a catastrophic injury lawyer to handle my case?” The short answer is “Yes, you really do.” The longer answer is a bit more complex.
What is the number one reason why I need to hire a catastrophic injury lawyer for my case?
The number one reason why you need a catastrophic injury lawyer to handle your case is because your catastrophic injury is devastating and will be for years to come. You do not want someone who is inexperienced with this type of law because you only get “one shot” to get justice and to receive an appropriate settlement. If you choose to work with a lawyer who is not well versed in catastrophic law, you may walk away with a pittance compared to what you deserve, but you will not get a second chance. You will have to live with your injuries for the rest of your life (or for a significant period of time) and will have no other recourse for additional monetary compensation.
What does a catastrophic injury lawyer understand about monetary compensation for catastrophic injuries?
A catastrophic injury lawyer understands the level of care needed in these types of cases and scenarios. They also understand how to look at every possible need in the short-term and long-term as well as factoring in possible future complications that may require treatment. When choosing to go with a lawyer who is not well versed in this type of significant injury, the level of compensation is often far below the necessary care for the injured person’s lifetime. It is important to remember that you need to be compensated not just for your short-term injury needs, but also for your long-term care.
What is a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are injuries or illnesses that have severe implications and in most cases, long-lasting, implications for the injured individual. This means that there is significant damage to the person’s life including their quality of life. Most often these types of catastrophic injuries show up via head injuries and brain stem injuries, body amputations or body paralysis, brain defects such as memory problems, and spinal cord injuries.
