The Compensation You Deserve
Orange County Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?
Injuries of catastrophic proportions are those that are severe enough to change a person's life forevermore. These often take shape in accidents that result in brain or spinal injury. The catastrophic nature of an injury is determined by its ability to alter a person's life so dramatically that it will never be the same. Someone who is paralyzed after an accident or someone who suffers from disfiguring burns may be a victim of a catastrophic injury. Although a person may have survived the dog bite or construction site accident that led to their wounds, their lives will never be lived in the same way as they were prior to the incident.
Motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and the like can all leave a person or persons severely — some might say catastrophically — injured, and in these cases, there is no better action to take than securing the highest level of legal representation available.
What Damages Can I Seek To Recover?
The type of claim you should make regarding your injury will depend on a number of factors surrounding the circumstances of your particular case.
The factors that should be considered include:
- The amount of pain and suffering you have incurred
- The wages you have lost during recovery or will lose in the future as a result of the injury
- Any loss of companionship that may have resulted from a death and so much more will all be assessed in order to determine how to best move forward with your case.
