Charlotte Catastrophic Injury Attorney
What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are ones that are so severe that the victim may never return to his or her previous life. These injuries lead to extensive, costly medical treatment and ongoing care. Victims may be unable to return to their jobs—or unable to work altogether. Often, both victims and their families will suffer an immense amount of trauma and grief as a result of these injuries.
If you or your loved one was catastrophically injured in a car accident, while at work, after receiving negligent medical care, or in any other preventable accident, reach out to the lawyers at Charles G. Monnett III & Associates. We can help you seek fair and just compensation from the at-fault person or their insurance company.
We understand the devastating nature of these types of injuries; our catastrophic injury lawyers in Charlotte are here to provide you with the compassionate support and dedicated advocacy you need. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Generally speaking, these injuries are those that are life-altering in nature; in other words, the victim is not able to return to his/her “normal,” pre-injury life.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Hearing/vision loss
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries, including those leading to paralysis
Note that any injury has the potential to be catastrophic. Broken bones and fractures could be catastrophic if they are particularly severe in nature, as can lacerations and wounds, internal organ/soft tissue damage, and other types of injuries.
Catastrophic Injury Settlements
What makes these types of personal injury cases unique is the extent of damages most victims suffer. Catastrophic injuries require ongoing treatment and even life-long care. Victims may be wheelchair-bound or bed-ridden. They may need to make alterations to their home in order to get around, or they may need fulltime in-home assistance. In some cases, victims will not be able to return to work as a result of their injuries; some may never work again.
For both victims and their families, the cost of a catastrophic injury can easily reach millions of dollars over the course of the victim’s lifetime. In addition to the financial strain, there are the physical and emotional consequences to deal with as well.
At Charles G. Monnett III & Associates, we evaluate the full lifetime costs of your or your loved one’s injuries. We look at your current costs and your future expected costs—such as ongoing rehabilitation therapy, medical and psychological treatment, and future lost earnings—as well. From there, our Charlotte catastrophic injury lawyers are able to build a case on your behalf that seeks to recover the maximum compensation you are owed.
