San Bernardino Catastrophic Injuries Attorney

No injury is fun. But when doctors and San Bernardino catastrophic injury attorneys talk about catastrophic injuries, they’re referring to the type of injury that will have at least some permanent, lifelong effect. Generally, that means a disability, noticeable disfigurement or some sort of physical loss. These catastrophic injuries could include severe burns; a traumatic brain injury or other head injury; a spinal cord injury leading to paralysis; chronic pain; or the loss of a limb or organ. Accidents that frequently lead to a catastrophic injury include:

Because of their injuries, victims can no longer live the lives they lived before, the lives they planned or the lives they would have chosen. At the very least, this can be emotionally devastating. Victims may no longer be able to do the same job they did before the accident, or not be able to work at all. They may need to spend months or years learning new ways to perform basic tasks. In the most severe cases, they may need daily care for the rest of their lives. Typically, family members without caregiver training must step in to help, even as they’re dealing with their own feelings of hurt and loss. And if the victim or a family member loses an income, the family may be scrambling just to make ends meet.

We can’t reverse the effects of a catastrophic injury, although we wish we could. But with a catastrophic injury lawsuit, we can help victims get the care they need and put affected families back on firm financial ground. In a lawsuit, clients can claim compensation for all past and future medical costs related to the accident, as well as all the income they lost -- even if that means a lifetime of lost wages. They can also claim compensation for the physical and emotional pain the injury caused and the devastating loss of abilities. We’re proud to be able to help our clients recover money that allows them to get the care they deserve and rebuild their lives.
