Information on Catastrophic Injuries
Certain accidents are so serious that they cause catastrophic injuries, some of which require a lifetime of medical care. These injuries will change the victim's life forever. Specifically debilitating and life-threatening, catastrophic injuries result in lasting disability or disfigurement. Brain injury, spinal cord injury, birth injury and burn injury all may qualify as catastrophic.
Talking to a Michigan personal injury attorney at the Freedman Law Group as soon as possible is one of the most important things you can do in the wake of a serious accident. Whether you were involved in an auto accident or slip and fall accident, suffered a serious dog bite or were injured due to medical malpractice, an experienced lawyer can evaluate your particular situation and determine how to help. A lawyer can evaluate the worth of your claim and then take action to negotiate a settlement out of court. If negotiations with the responsible party and their insurance company are unsuccessful, your lawyer can take your case to civil court to seek a judgment on your behalf.
Were you the victim of a catastrophic injury?
Under personal injury law, a victim who has sustained catastrophic injuries in an accident of another's causing may be able to seek and recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and emotional trauma. Due to the extent of injuries sustained in catastrophic injury cases in particular, victims are usually able to seek more for medical care (as continued or lifelong medical assistance may be necessary) as well as higher amounts for pain and suffering and emotional trauma. The loss of enjoyment of life, depression anxiety may all result from debilitating or disfiguring injuries. Contact a Michigan injury lawyer today to learn more!
