What are Catastrophic injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are injuries that result in death, permanent disability or serious injuries (fractured neck or serious head injury) (via UNC). These injuries are going to take substantial time to heal, need extensive medical treatment, and the victim may never be physically or mentally the same again. Some examples of catastrophic accidents would be motorcyle accidents in which the rider sustains a severe TBI, a pedestrian who is hit by a speeding car, or a small car vs. tractor trailer truck accident. If you notice in these accidents, the victims are not protected from impact which results in more serious (catastrophic) injuries. However, any accident, can unfortunately result in catastrophic injuries under the wrong conditions.
Do you need a NC Catastrophic Injury Attorney?
Catastrophic injury cases usually involve extensive medical records, exorbitant medical bills, as well as severe financial losses to the victim from missing work and the inability to work in the future. Unfortunately, many insurance companies want to pay as little as possible and close cases as quickly as possible so they don’t have to pay for further medical treatment. In Catastrophic Injury cases, this must be avoided. Inability to work and future medical expenses need to be calculated into your settlement with the insurance company before the case closes. If something happens after settlement and the victim needs extensive medical treatment there will be no way to recover. This is where a NC Catastrophic Injury Attorney can help you and your family. Gathering medical records, finding out from your doctor what future treatment you may need, calculating your lost wages and negotiating with the insurance company are all essential steps to achieving the highest settlement possible. Having an personal injury attorney to help you with this allows you and your family to focus on the victim’s recovery.
