Ventura And Los Angeles Injury Attorneys
SPINAL CORD INJURIES, BURN INJURIES, TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
Catastrophic injuries are generally categorized as very serious injuries such as brain injuries, spinal injuries, lost limbs, partial or full paralysis and even vegetative states that can take weeks, months or years to recover from, or result in permanent disability. Common causes of catastrophic injuries include car accidents, construction accidents, drowning accidents and many others. In most cases, individuals who suffer from catastrophic injuries will face increasingly high costs related to treatment and recovery including surgery, medication, therapies and more. If this type of injury is caused by another person, the victim may be able to recover some or all of these costs by seeking financial compensation through the representation of an expert Ventura personal injury lawyer or Los Angeles personal injury lawyer with the Law offices of Neustadt & Berriz.
Whether the victim is an individual or the primary family breadwinner, catastrophic injuries can have devastating effects. Beyond the costs associated with recovery such as medical bills lies the additional financial consequence of lost wages, which can make up a large part of any settlement or court decision. Many catastrophic injury victims may miss significant time from work, and more still may have a permanent inability to work due to their injuries. In these situations, a specific amount may be agreed upon, or imposed by judgment, not only to cover current lost wages, but may also extend to cover any projected earnings that a person may have gone on to earn if the injury had never occurred.
