What Causes A Catastrophic Injury?
Our obvious specialty is bicycle and pedestrian accidents. But we have obtained outstanding results for our clients in automobile and slip-and-fall accidents as well. Other causes of catastrophic injuries include fires, athletic injuries and assaults. An injury can occur any time and at any place. It can occur while a person is at work, spending time with family or friends or simply while they are shopping at the mall. No matter how careful a person is when it comes to their safety, accidents happen.
How Is Compensation For Catastrophic Injuries Determined?
When it comes to catastrophic injuries, compensation is normally determined by a combination of past and future economic damages (bills for medical care, long-term care, lost income and other economic damages), and the impact on the victim’s quality of life. For example, a person who loses a limb may still be able to work, but may not be able to perform the functions of their current job. Their prospects for other employment may also be severely limited.
A person who suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may not be able to function independently. A victim of TBI may require personalized care for the rest of his or her life.
Another factor in determining compensation is whether or not the person or company responsible for the accident knew there was a risk.
