CATASTROPHIC ACCIDENT AND SERIOUS INJURY ATTORNEYS
At Sweet James, we believe in holding the insurance company responsible for your catastrophic accident and serious injuries. Serious injuries often are the outcome of catastrophic accidents, sometimes resulting in physical disfigurements and psychological disorders.
Our catastrophic accident and serious injury attorneys know that serious injuries present more significant challenges, financial obligations, and long-term health care requirements than other injuries.
Sweet James skilled serious injury lawyers will fight until you have received a fair settlement and the resources you need to recover.
Catastrophic accidents are life-threatening and are often caused by extreme conditions or mismatches like pedestrian versus vehicle. As pick-up trucks and SUVs become bigger and more powerful they are greater threats for catastrophic accidents with smaller vehicles. Here are a number of situations that can cause catastrophic accidents and injuries:
Bicycle and scooter accidents
All of these accidents require a dedicated law firm and serious injury attorneys who have experience and success going up against insurance companies that don’t want to pay you what your claim is worth.
COMMON SERIOUS INJURIES
A catastrophic accident can lead to serious injuries that weigh you down with pain and suffering, future medical treatment, and loss of wages.
Serious injuries often result in surgery, extensive rehabilitation, severe disfigurement, and even lifelong pain management. Serious injuries are injuries that result in:
Permanent loss or consequential limitation of use of a body organ, member, function, or system.
Even if your injuries are irreversible, an experienced serious injury lawyer ensures your suffering is not. A fair settlement means you get extensive medical treatment and pain management.
If your quality of life is anything short of 100%, you deserve compensation.
SYMPTOMS OF SERIOUS INJURIES
After a catastrophic accident, the shock of the accident can disguise pain and symptoms that could indicate you’ve been seriously injured – a serious injury may not present itself until days later.
After an accident, watch for symptoms of serious injuries:
Numbness or weakness in certain areas
Neck and shoulder pain
Anxiety or depression
Don’t ignore any of these symptoms. You should get medical attention to avoid long-term health problems, and serious injuries may make you eligible for compensation.
HOW MUCH CAN A SERIOUS INJURY CLAIM BE WORTH?
Every case is different. The amount of compensation that a serious injury lawyer will be able to win for you is based on the severity of your injury, your current and future financial obligations, your financial hardships, and the estimated cost of long-term care. Personal hardships taken into account include:
Loss of future wages
Ongoing medical care and emotional therapy
Pain and suffering
Medical and ambulatory equipment
SECURING FOR YOUR FUTURE
Serious injuries can be life-changing, often leaving permanent disabilities requiring 24-hour care. Victims and their families need help to secure their future after a serious injury.
If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Compensation cannot change what happened but financial assistance can enable you to manage your injuries and live as well as possible with your circumstances.
A serious injury can be caused by all accident types, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip-and-falls, or product malfunctions. We understand that each and every case is unique, and must proceed with personal care. From our first consultation to the final verdict or settlement, our relationship covers a long stretch on a difficult road.
