Compensation for catastrophic injuries considers many factors

Catastrophic injuries can be difficult for a person to live with. These often come with considerable pain and changes in what they are able to do. Brain damage and spinal cord injuries are two examples of what will fall under this category.

When the injury was caused by the negligence of another person, you might decide to seek compensation for the financial damages you have to deal with as a result of the accident. This is done by filing a lawsuit in civil court. You have to consider a variety of things to determine the financial value of the claim.

Many victims of accidents that lead to serious injuries have high medical care costs. These might be expected to continue for the rest of their life. This means that we must consider the entire cost, both past and future, when we are coming up with the amount of the claim. We know you don't want to be unable to afford care in the future because you didn't get an adequate settlement or award.

We need to ensure that your case accurately reflects all the ways that the accident and injuries impacted your life. If you had a promising career that was cut short by the injury, we need to show that you lost income and your livelihood. Including loss of income in your claim is often necessary so that you can still have a part in supporting your family.

Because there are time limits in these cases, you should get your case started as soon as possible after the incident. If the statute of limitations expires in your case, you won't be able to do anything to recover the damages.
