Not all injuries are alike. Some are more serious than others, resulting in permanent disabilities which require medical care and supervision for the remainder of the injured person’s life. Not only must catastrophic injury victims deal with seemingly insurmountable medical costs, but also find a way to find the financial means to pay for it all since they often lose the ability to work.
When a catastrophic injury is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another individual or entity, victims can pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. At Elizabeth A. Citrin, P.C., we are devoted to helping catastrophic injury victims maximize their settlements in order to help them obtain life-long care. Attorney Citrin can conduct an investigation, gather evidence, negotiate with insurers, and protect the rights and best interests of her clients. Let us help you get the compensation and justice you deserve.
The Difference Between Catastrophic Injury & Personal Injury
While many personal injuries are serious, they are often temporary in nature, resulting in a complete or nearly complete recovery of the victim. Despite the fact that personal injury victims may need to take some time off from their job duties to recover, they typically are able to return to the workplace within a matter of weeks or months.
On the other hand, catastrophic injuries leave the victim with permanent injury, disability, or disfigurement. A victim may never completely recover and return to work, often requiring life-long medical care and accommodations. Due to the substantial costs associated with catastrophic injuries, these claims often reach millions of dollars in order to cover past and future medical expenses, lost income, lost earning potential, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment in life.
Our firm handles the following catastrophic injury cases:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Burn injury
- Hearing or vision loss
- Permanent internal damage
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Multiple broken bones
