Filing a Claim for Catastrophic Injuries
It can happen in an instant. Suddenly and without warning, you find yourself in a serious accident that leaves you with a severe and life-changing injury. One moment you are enjoying your life as normal, and the next you have sustained an injury that can forever change nearly every aspect of your existence. Now, you may be facing a future of partial or total disability, a future in which you cannot earn the income you need to support your family and will be unable to enjoy your favorite activities.
Economic Effects of Your Injury
The economic consequences of a catastrophic injury can be devastating. In fact, suffering a major medical event is commonly cited as being one of the most common causes of bankruptcy across the United States. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the average spinal cord injury victim can expect to require between $15,000 and $30,000 in medical care on a yearly basis, and between $500,000 and $3 million in treatment over the course of a lifetime.
If you have been severely injured as a result of another person's negligence, you should not be forced to make difficult choices about whether or not you can afford the treatment that you require to make the fullest possible recovery. You should not be left struggling to make ends meet. You deserve compensation for the immense pain, suffering and emotional distress that you have sustained.
