Are You A Victim Of A Catastrophic Injury?
The lawyers at MetroLaw.Com have extensive experience gauging the full costs of current and future needs for victims of catastrophic injuries. We have obtained substantial settlements and jury verdicts for our clients through litigation and negotiation.
We consult with top medical experts and planners to develop a life care plan for victims of spine injuries, head injuries, paralysis and all forms of life-changing injury. We account for future medical treatment and personal care, medical equipment and transportation, loss of income potential, and compensatory damages for loss of enjoyment. We work closely with victims and their doctors to ensure that they receive the total compensation required for a lifelong injury.
HOW WILL A CATASTROPHIC INJURY AFFECT YOU?
Injuries are considered catastrophic because of the enormous impact they have on victims’ lives. Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Brain injury
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injury
- Neurological disorders
A catastrophic injury or illness often causes disruption to the central nervous system, which in turn affects many other systems of the body. Management of such an injury is complex. It may require the expertise of a team of health professionals, as well as expensive treatments and rehabilitation. If you or a loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries as the result of an accident, you will need an experienced lawyer who knows how to secure compensation for you.
DETERMINING FUTURE COSTS OF CARE
Often only a small amount of insurance is available to compensate a catastrophically injured person. This is one of the most important reasons for retaining an attorney. He or she can pursue every possible benefit and maximize the amount you are receiving. Additionally, even if your attorney determines you do not have a legal cause of action against a responsible party, he or she might assist you in obtaining government benefits.
A medical evaluation to determine the severity of your impairment can have a huge impact on the compensation you receive. You will be evaluated on:
- Your ability to work
- Your rights to receive certain kinds of compensation
- Eligibility for protection against discrimination
- Whether independent living is possible
- What type of physical therapy might improve your health
We will prepare you for an evaluation and, afterward, fight for the full compensation you are entitled to.
