When you’re injured in an accident, you hope that with proper medical treatment, you’ll regain your health and mobility and life will be normal again. Unfortunately, there are some injuries that permanently alter a victim’s life. When you or a loved one suffers a catastrophic injury due to someone’s negligence, recklessness or criminal conduct, you are entitled to compensation for the totality of your losses. This includes not only monetary losses, such as medical bills and lost income, but also physical pain, mental suffering, loss of quality of life and loss of enjoyment of life. Your damages include future income you might lose because you are no longer able to work as you once did, as well as expenses for future medical treatment and personal care.
You can have a better chance of recovering the full damage award you’re entitled to if you entrust your case to an attorney skilled in dealing with catastrophic injury claims. When you retain Faught & Faught, P.A., you get a dedicated team with more than 50 years of combined experience, totally focused on delivering clients the results they deserve.
A catastrophic injury is one that is so severe that the victim never fully recovers and faces a lifetime of limitations as a result. Catastrophic injuries include:
Each of these injuries involves a different type of permanent loss. The victim may no longer have full mobility or bodily functions. Strength, stamina or balance can be affected, limiting activities. Cognitive function, mood and even personality can be altered. A victim can lose autonomy and require personal care, which in turn may injure his or her dignity. Injuries that affect the victim’s appearance change the way he or she interacts with people and can limit the ability or willingness to forge relationships. All of these losses are compensable and our attorneys fight to maximize the amount of your damage award or settlement.
To make a successful claim for damages, a victim must be able to prove that another person’s wrongful act or omission directly caused the harm. Catastrophic injury cases involve such incidents as vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents and industrial or workplace accidents.
