California catastrophic injury attorneys
While personal injury situations arise almost every day, certain situations involve injuries so severe that they change the life of the injured person forever. When someone has suffered this sort of injury, his or her first step should be to seek the help of an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer. The catastrophically injured person faces a lifetime of needs that should be handled by the enforcement of legal rights.
Immediate costs and damages
When someone is seriously injured, they often need extensive medical care that involves potentially lengthy stays in a hospital. Even if they have health insurance, that will not always cover all of these costs, and many patients can face hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in medical bills. We can help you recapture these costs.
Many serious injuries also involve ongoing and intensive medical care even after the person who has been harmed is released from the hospital. Costly care may include physical therapy, psychological therapy, prosthetics, other specialized equipment designed to make that person’s life more manageable, as well as many other costs that arise every month and never go away. These ongoing expenses can actually add up to more than the cost of a lengthy hospital stay. We make sure that these types of damages are accounted for when a claim is filed and pursued.
Job loss and lost income
People who have suffered serious injuries because of the negligence of someone else often face the prospect of either no longer being able to work at all or having to work different jobs that do not pay nearly as much as they were earning before the incident and the injuries it caused. The income that is lost can be recovered in a successful personal injury case, but the figure that’s pursued needs to be accurate and clearly pleaded at the outset of the case. We make sure your legal rights are protected and enforced.
