Causes Of Catastrophic Injury
Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are not limited to inherently dangerous activities. There is almost no limit to the manner in which a catastrophic injury can occur. They often result from trucking accidents, heavy machinery accidents or motor vehicle accidents. However, they can result from a severe bicycle accident or a slip-and-fall. They may also result from medical malpractice or dangerous medications.
The Need For Proper Evaluation
Catastrophic injuries are life-changing events few people experience directly, either themselves or through a loved one. If catastrophic injuries are the result of someone else's negligence or a defective product, it is vitally important to hire an attorney with experience dealing with such injuries. You need an attorney who will carefully evaluate what compensation is needed to cover the costs associated with catastrophic injuries. These costs include medical bills, lost wages, future earnings, lost enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
