Seeking Justice for Victims Catastrophic Injuries
Defending Victims of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries leave a colossal impact on the life of an individual. Such a devastating injury can leave a person unable to return to normal activities or perform any meaningful work. These changes don’t just affect the victim, but also the people around him, or her, as well. Regardless of what may have caused the impact, those who are suffering will need proper treatment and seek justice. Rather than going about this injury alone, or with an unreliable insurance company, such individuals and their families should consider the legal assistance and knowledge of the trusted personal injury attorneys here, at JT Legal Group.
Catastrophic injuries can be a result of many different causes. While car accidents contribute a major percentage to these catastrophic injuries, these accidents generally include those who were involved in t-bone collisions, motorcycle accidents, head-on collisions, truck accidents, and rollovers. Another cause of such an impact refers to medical malpractice cases. A medical practitioner may have made an incorrect diagnosis or administered the wrong treatment, causing such a sickness to worsen. Whatever the reason may be, those who are liabile for such an irreversible condition, should be professionally (and legally) confronted.
Personal Injury & Property Damage Recovery
Property recovery claims are often the first component of a settlement that is transferred by the respondent’s insurance company, which is also a good sign that the insurance company will not fight liability on their client’s part. This protection can include assignment of a rental vehicle while awaiting repairs or paying off the value of the vehicle if it is totaled out by the insurance company. The personal injury settlement negotiation is usually where the most intense resistance occurs from the insurance provider, especially when the insurance adjuster thinks they can argue for an increase in the comparative negligence percentage of the injured plaintiff driver or avoid long-term medical coverage for permanent or disabling injuries included in an intentionally delayed settlement.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries usually have an ever-lasting impact on those who were harmed. The following are a few examples of some catastrophic injuries:
- • Traumatic Head Injuries / Brain Injuries – Serious injuries like these often leave lifelong damages, even leaving some unfortunate souls in a vegetative state for the remainder of their lives. Traumatic brain injuries may also cause extensive memory loss, vision loss, physical disabilities, and some mental disabilities, as well. These are only a few among many other conditions.
- • Spinal Injuries – Injuries to the spine may be the result of one’s neck becoming impacted during an accident. Paralysis is the primary result of spinal injuries. Besides car crashes, an incorrect diagnosis of an illness can cause such injuries.
- • Multiple Bone Fractures – These injuries may leave devastating impacts on those harmed, as the pain may be excruciating to deal with, such may take a long time to heal, and some of these fractures may not even heal completely, or at all, with some victims.
- • Injuries Resulting from a Fire – This catastrophic event may leave lasting damages to their victims. This includes scars, burn marks, dis-figuration, and loss of proper mobility.
