Catastrophic Injury Accidents

Catastrophic injuries are so debilitating that the victim can never fully recover. And these injuries arise from any number of accidents at home, on the roads, or even at work.

The trial attorneys at Fisher Stark understand how catastrophic injuries occur and how life is changed forever as a result. So, don’t let your loved one be left behind, taking the first offer an insurance company presents. Because hiring an experienced personal injury attorney helps fight for fair compensation, including future expenses.

Compensation for lifelong injuries

Everyone with a catastrophic injury deserves a champion fighting for them and advocating for their best care and recovery. And the attorneys at Fisher Stark are experienced with the numerous limitations arising from catastrophic injuries and the complex ways they can occur. So let us help you get fair compensation for personal injuries.

Catastrophic injuries are traumatically induced. Consequently, they are so serious that victims never fully recover. As a result, these debilitating injuries often involve the spine, spinal cord, brain, and / or skull. Also, such serious conditions often involve lifelong medical care which means nursing assistance for example.

You only have one chance at full recovery. So hiring the personal injury attorneys at Fisher Stark frees up victims to focus on health recovery and getting back to the business of life. Consequently, our attorneys focus on dealing with the at-fault person’s responsibilities, including their insurance company's adjusters.

Insurance companies have their own interests at heart, not yours. So at Fisher Stark, P.A., we fight for the rights of victims to receive fair compensation. Consequently, the insurance companies know our reputation.

What causes catastrophic injuries?

Catastrophic injuries can happen anywhere to anyone. So, we've represented victims involved in auto accidents, others suffering head injuries from falls, and others receiving impacts with objects. Also, victims with debilitating burns need aggressive representation too. So while each case may be different, all catastrophic injuries affect the victim's life for the rest of their lives.

So if you or someone you love has a catastrophic injury, you should have experienced legal help. Because fighting for adequate compensation means factoring in future medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering. Because the worst part about catastrophic injuries is that these accidents are often caused by negligence or reckless behavior of others. So, we fight for you.

Catastrophic injuries result from:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Sport and recreational activities
  • Defective medical devices or drugs
  • Medical mistakes
  • Falls from height

Types of catastrophic injuries

When a catastrophic injury is caused by someone else, proving the carelessness, negligence, or recklessness of the at-fault person is easier said than done. But, Fisher Stark, P.A., has experts at gathering evidence. And insurance companies know our willingness to go to trial. Consequently, we earned this aggressive reputation with more than 50 years' combined court experience and more than 170 verdicts.

Fisher Stark, P.A., has experience helping people with cases involving:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries; causing lifelong problems; cognitive dysfunction, abnormal speech and language, emotional problems, even mobility issues.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries; causing partial or full paralysis, respiratory and circulatory problems, muscle reflexes and spasms, chronic pain, and loss of bowel and bladder control.
  • Severe Burns; often leading to infections, limb loss, disfigurement, and permanent disability depending on the location and severity of the burns.
  • Limb Loss; creating severe physical challenges and emotional issues for the amputee as well as for family and friends.
  • Ruptured Bowels, Kidneys, Liver or Spleen; happening because of a car crash or other accident, resulting in life-threatening internal bleeding.

Costs Associated With Lifelong Injuries

Catastrophic injuries mean a lifetime of care and expenses. Consequently, such a burden can easily ruin a person financially. Experienced attorneys fight because care can include extended hospital stays, then ongoing medical care afterward if the victim is unable to take care of their own personal needs. No one should be ruined due to the bad decisions of someone else.

At Fisher Stark, P.A., we have experience with the costs associated with catastrophic injuries, including expenses like:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Nursing care
  • Medication expenses
  • Physical therapy
  • Occupational therapy
  • Ongoing psychological counseling
  • Medical equipment for specialized needs
  • Home remodeling to accommodate wheelchairs
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement

Catastrophic injury challenges

Lifelong injuries can cause other medical issues over time. So, someone suffering a spinal cord injury can develop respiratory problems much later. Also, victims suffering a brain injury can appear perfectly normal, but may face debilitating, lifelong issues. Consequently, these conditions can include chronic headaches, memory loss and cognitive dysfunction. And such injuries make it nearly impossible to keep a job or even hold long term personal relationships.

Numerous studies illustrate how traumatic brain injuries affect the person on a cellular level. And these debilitating problems substantially increase the likelihood of future cognitive problems.

Catastrophic injuries should have experienced representation like Fisher Stark, P.A. Because serious injuries deserve serious lawyers.
