Seeking Compensation After a Catastrophic Injury

| Mar 29, 2019 | Catastrophic Injuries, Firm News |

Any injury that a person sustains can be difficult to endure, especially when you consider the physical, emotional, and financial hardships. A serious, catastrophic injury often results in even more difficulties that may be experienced.
Catastrophic injuries often require the injured individual to undergo multiple medical procedures,
long-term care, and in some cases, even customize their home, vehicles, and more. This makes seeking compensation imperative, but there are some things that you should know.

How Much Is My Case Worth?

To answer this question, there are a lot of variables that need to be considered including the cause of the crash, the damages sustained, the severity of the injury, the person’s age, and more. These are all taken into account when determining how much the injured party may be offered or awarded.

For instance, if the injured individual is younger, has a higher paying job, and the catastrophic injury prevents them from working any longer, the loss of future earning potential may require a higher amount in compensation.
State caps may also be considered as this could limit the amount of compensation received.
