Jefferson Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

There are many types of personal injuries that can result in expenses and psychological impacts for the sufferer. However, some injuries are so severe in nature that they result in disabilities that will likely permanently prevent the sufferer from being able to earn an income or to accomplish personal tasks independently. These are known as catastrophic injuries. If you or your loved one have suffered an injury to the brain, spinal cord, or other permanent injuries such as loss of vision, a Jefferson catastrophic injury lawyer can help you understand the process of seeking compensation for a lifetime of expenses and impacts.

Have You Suffered a Catastrophic Injury in Jefferson?

The term catastrophic injury most often applies to injuries to the brain or spinal cord, which are the organs that make up the body’s central nervous system. In spite of the importance of the central nervous system in controlling nearly every function of the body and its involuntary responses, neither the brain or the spine are particularly adept at healing from damage. With spinal cord injuries, there is a high likelihood of paralysis. With brain injuries, there can be deficits affecting memory, self-control, the ability to communicate, or to move in a coordinated manner.

Permanent loss of vision or hearing can also result in the inability to earn an income or accomplish personal tasks independently, as can amputated limbs, and severe injuries affecting the spinal vertebrae or discs in the back or neck.

ANSWERS FOR YOUR QUESTIONS

What makes an injury catastrophic?

A catastrophic injury is generally defined as one that results in permanent disabilities that prevent the injured person from ever being able to earn an income. Often these injuries also result in a loss of the ability to live alone and accomplish personal tasks independently.

Is it worth getting a lawyer for a Jefferson catastrophic injury?

Having the assistance of an experienced Jefferson catastrophic injury lawyer is absolutely crucial to your claim. Because this injury is highly likely to result in an inability to earn an income, along with the severe psychological impacts that come from incurring a permanent disability, it is vital that your claim is properly valued in order to obtain enough compensation to last through a lifetime of expenses.

Additionally, your lawyer brings experience with the legal process, including experience in the types of evidence and expert testimony needed to prove the presence of permanent injuries. Because it is an unfortunate reality that many personal injury claims are not fully compensated as they exceeded the limits of the at-fault party’s associated insurance policy, your attorney can also provide guidance in determining the presence of other liable parties and associated insurance policies that can also help to produce the level of compensation you will require through life.

What questions should I ask a Jefferson catastrophic injury lawyer?

When seeking the assistance of a Jefferson catastrophic injury lawyer, you will want to ask questions to help you understand what their level of experience is. Examples of these types of questions include:

  • How many catastrophic injury cases have you won?
  • How many cases like mine were settled out of court, and how many have you litigated?
  • What is your success rate at trial?

While the majority of catastrophic injury claims, like other types of personal injury claims, settle outside of court. However, if your case happens to be one of the few that does wind up in court, you want an attorney that is comfortable and experienced there.

You also will want to inquire about your attorney’s fees. Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingent-fee basis, meaning you do not have to pay for their services until you have been compensated. However, it is never safe to assume. Questions about fees can include:

  • How are your fees paid?
  • If I lose the case, am I responsible for costs?

Finally, you will want to ensure that your attorney has time to devote to your case. Questions about timing and scheduling include:

  • How long do you think it will take to resolve my case?
  • Will you be handling my claim or will someone else in the office be in charge of it?
  • Who is my point of contact?
  • How often can I expect updates?

Who is Responsible for a Catastrophic Injury?

Most catastrophic injuries are the result of negligence, which is a failure to exercise proper care. In order to prove who was liable (legally responsible for your injury), you must  show the following elements:

  • The at-fault party had a duty of care to take reasonable actions to protect the safety of others.
  • This duty was breached by the at-fault party’s actions, which were contrary to the care that was owed.
  • The breach caused an accident in which you were injured. Because of your injury, you sustained permanent impacts and expenses that will likely continue throughout your life.
