Accidents happen every day and most people walk away from them relatively unscathed. But a catastrophic injury can affect you and your family, financially and emotionally, for a lifetime. A catastrophic injury is a life-altering one, causing long-term or permanent pain or loss of the use of a limb or organ. It can include things like paralysis and spinal cord injuries, disfiguring burns, amputations, the loss of the use of a limb, traumatic or other brain injuries that result in permanent cognitive impairment, chronic lung damage, and blindness or deafness.
Are You Facing Long-Term or Permanent Physical Impairment?
If you or a loved one are facing chronic physical or mental impairment as the result of a catastrophic injury, you may have medical bills stacking up.You may be unable to currently work now or in the future. You maybe in a great deal of pain with no end in sight. If your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, short or long-term care, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, or psychological treatment.
In California, more than one person can be held liable for your catastrophic injury. In addition to the negligent person, there may be an employer, company, manufacturer, or an insurance company to help compensate you for your damages.Even if you believe you may have been partly at fault, another negligent party can also be held partially responsible under California’s “comparative negligence” law.
