Los Angeles Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
Anyone lucky enough to survive the initial trauma of a catastrophic injury has a long road, possibly life-long, of surgical procedures, medical treatment and rehabilitation. Catastrophic injuries are those which involve a long-lasting or permanent medical condition or disability, and might seriously compromise one or more systems in the body. These may be sustained in violent accidents such as explosions, major car accidents, equipment malfunctions, fires or result from defective products. Many catastrophic injuries result from the negligent actions of another. A personal injury attorney at our firm has decades of experience in bringing claims for damages in these cases to a successful conclusion.
Serious Injury Claims and Compensation
The lives of victims of catastrophic injuries and their families are severely disrupted by these events. Catastrophic injuries include:
- Crush injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Birth injuries
- Burn injuries
The injured person may rely upon medical equipment to continue to breathe or to remove toxins from the system. The expense of medical treatment and daily care can soon become enormous. The company, person, or government entity responsible for these injuries is not usually willing to provide adequate monetary damages unless forced to do so by a determined catastrophic injury lawyer. Our legal team is well versed in the tactics used by insurance companies to avoid fully compensating victims injured through the negligence of their clients.
