Serious Car Accident Injuries
While any injury that results from an accident can seem serious, catastrophic injuries are in a league of their own. These injuries often have devastating short- and long-term effects on an individual. In many cases, a victim of a serious or catastrophic injury will require long-term treatment or rehabilitation. These are the cases where victims suffer from injuries that are not only permanent, but also devastating.
Serious and Catastrophic injuries can impact virtually every aspect of your life. They take away your ability to be independent, forcing you to rely on others for almost everything. Basic daily routines that you always took for granted are now things that you need help with. These are often injuries that rob you of your mobility, making you rely on machines and tools to sit, stand, and walk. Victims of catastrophic injuries are oftentimes never the same again.
At the same time, a catastrophic injury will affect the lives of your loved ones, sometimes just as much as the person who was injured. There are many ways that your loved ones will have to change their lies. A spouse can turn into a caretaker. A child can lose the financial and emotional support that they need as they grow up. This is why many catastrophic injuries will include an allocation for something called Loss of Consortium. This is the way that your loved ones, especially your spouse and children, are affected because of an injury to you.
If your injury occurred due to a motor vehicle accident, a work accident or a premises liability accident, you could be entitled to more compensation than your insurance company is offering. Insurance companies are notorious for attempting to downplay your injuries and give you less than a fair settlement. For example, many insurance companies need specific types of reports to consider an injury to be permanent. While you and your doctors may think it’s obvious that you will never be back to 100%, the insurance company may refuse to state the obvious.
