Catastrophic Personal Injury

Catastrophic Personal Injury

A catastrophic personal injury is a life-changing event. While you can experience some form of recovery, victims are often never completely whole again and their lives are forever changed. Individuals that suffer catastrophic personal injury require significant physical therapy, advanced medical equipment, sometimes round-the-clock care and frequent medical attention throughout the remainder of their lives.

This type of care creates expenses that result in mounting medical bills that oftentimes insurance will not cover and the injured party cannot afford. That is compounded by having to deal with a potentially debilitating injury which not only affects the injured person, but his or her family as well. If you experience an injury as a result of negligence, you may need to file a personal injury claim to obtain compensation for your pain and suffering, lost wages, as well as current and future medical expenses.

Lombana Hoelle Trial Law attorneys possess extensive experience handling catastrophic injury cases. Our team understands how these unfortunate situations can affect victims and their families. We strive to assist victims of catastrophic personal injury by holding the responsible party or parties accountable for their negligent actions.

A catastrophic personal injury may occur due to various events. These can include medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, trucking accidents, bus accidents, motorcycle accidents, aviation accidents, premises liability and construction accidents.

A catastrophic personal injury may include any of the following:

  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Quadriplegia
  • Concussions
  • Closed Brain Injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Hypoxic brain injuries in newborn babies
  • Amputation
  • Burns
  • Wrongful death

Catastrophic personal injury cases pose a unique set of challenges and can be particularly challenging to litigate. Explaining a catastrophic personal injury to a jury of non-medically trained individuals is often a complicated endeavor. It involves hiring expert witnesses in various fields of medicine to educate the jury and help them understand the nature and extent of the victim’s injuries.

The stakes are also higher with catastrophic injuries. If you or a loved one suffer a catastrophic personal injury, you need specialized legal assistance. The attorneys at Lombana Hoelle Trial Law posses the skills and expertise to help you attain a positive outcome in court or during negotiations.
