Can I Be Compensated for a Catastrophic Injury?
As permanent disability is typically a part of catastrophic accidents, financial compensation is often pursued by the injured party in an effort to cover costs associated with long term treatment and care as well as other economic damages, including present and future predicted loss of income. Damages such as pain and suffering and loss of quality of life must also be addressed in your claim that should be filed by a skilled legal professional. Establishing a relationship with a skilled and determined legal team is an excellent way to begin seeking compensation for your catastrophic injuries.
In cases where a catastrophic injury has been caused by the negligent actions of another person, they can be held liable and responsible for all damages. This includes medical costs associated with diagnosis, treatment and recovery, physical therapy, and emotional therapy to help come to terms with these traumatic events. Since many catastrophic injuries are permanent and require a lifetime of medical or nursing care, the negligent party may also be held responsible for the costs associated with that care, whether it is provided by a family member or a professional.
