Help for Your Catastrophic Injuries
Understanding Your Catastrophic Injuries
When you are injured in a catastrophic accident that renders you permanently disfigured or disabled, you need compensation for your injuries. Under California law, you have a right to file a lawsuit against the parties that caused these catastrophic injuries.
Often accidents are so severe they prevent people from returning to work in the same field or role. These people may need to seek employment in a completely different position or line of work. These injured people may have long-term injuries from a catastrophic accident that reduces their quality of life. Many who suffer from these injuries require live-in assistance to care for their daily needs.
Catastrophic injuries often include one or more of the following associated health issues:
- Spinal cord damage
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Partial or total paralysis
- Loss of a limb
- Severe burn injuries
- Severe scarring
- Neck and back injuries
- Crush injuries
- Loss of vision
With these catastrophic injuries, you may have no ability to work in any capacity or earn a living for you and your family. You have a right to a settlement award for accidents that cause catastrophic injuries from someone else’s negligence. In most instances, these cases provide higher compensation to accommodate your injuries while living as normal a lifestyle as possible.
