Catastrophic injuries change lives forever. Types of injuries that are considered catastrophic typically include traumatic brain injuries, burns, and loss of a limb.

Living with a catastrophic injury is not only frustrating and devastating, but costly as well. Surgeries, physical therapy, in-home medical care, medications, endless doctor appointments, and not being able to work will end up costing thousands of dollars over the course of your life.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

Fortunately, you may be able to receive compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. The law has guidelines about the amount you can receive and rules about what you can actually seek money for.

  • Damages. The person responsible for the accident is usually required to “make the plaintiff whole.” This means that the defendant should pay enough money to cover all of the victim’s medical expenses, pain and suffering, and time lost from work. This fee is typically rather high in catastrophic injury cases
  • Determining the amount to ask for. Coming up with a number may be difficult, particularly if you are just beginning the recovery process and are unsure of the effect your injury will have on your life. Proving that you should receive the amount you ask for is typically a difficult process, as you’ll need to present facts and arguments that support your request. Your attorney will need to possess a good understanding of the medical process to obtain a reasonable idea of what future medical treatment will cost.

Contact an Attorney for Help

Attempting to seek such a large amount of compensation for your catastrophic injury by yourself will likely end in disappointment. Instead of taking this large task on by yourself, obtain the help of an experienced attorney who has your best interests in mind. The Andrew Kim Law Firm will do what it can to get you the justice you deserve. Contact us today to learn how.
