Catastrophic Injury


Catastrophes are, by definition, events that occur without previous knowledge or ability to prepare for what's coming and the end result is disastrous physically, fiscally, or other. Catastrophic injury, then, is obviously that result of bodily harm which makes a person less capable of living their life than before. This usually is a direct result of car accidents, but can also occur because of sporting events, wicked weather, and and gross negligence on a responsible party's part.

Let's take the car accident, for example. Driving home from work on a Friday night is practically a recipe for death no matter where you live. It's date night, friends go out to the bars and restaurants, stuff is happening that could result in a minor fender bender to vehicular manslaughter. As "luck" has it, you're hit from the side by a truck driver who nodded off while exiting the freeway. As his rig plows through your car, your injuries leave you unable to walk again. This isn't just about you, either. Your spouse or significant other, your children, your family, your friends, are all affected by the accident. You need a ton of money to pay the medical bills and rehab, medical equipment, medicine...the list goes on. Your doctor lists your chances of walking again as grim or nil.

You need a personal injury attorney as soon as you are able to talk to one. If you can't a loved one should speak for you. The semi driver has altered the course of your life, and has a responsibility to help with your expenses. A personal injury attorney with experience in catastrophic injury is ideal, but if there isn't one in your area, a personal injury attorney will work. It's their job to empathize with your situation and fight to get you a settlement that you can live with the rest of your life.

Solid counsel and advice in these situations is always hard to hear and more difficult to talk about. The catastrophic event that put you where you are is always fresh in your mind, and it's not just your body that needs to heal. Hire a personal injury attorney as soon as you are able because in some states a statute of limitations on these cases is shorter than others which just rubs salt in your physical, emotional, and psychological wounds. We're here to ease your pain.
