What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is one with serious, long-term, and/or life-changing consequences for a victim. A catastrophic injury often means the loss of a vital part of your person, such as permanent paralysis or brain damage. Common examples of catastrophic injuries are:
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain injury
- Third-degree burn
- Internal injury
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
- Traumatic amputation
- Fatal injury
Catastrophic injuries can be inflicted by many different types of accidents in Los Angeles, including motor vehicle collisions, falls, workplace disasters, defective products, nursing home abuse, and criminal attacks. Milanfar Law Firm, PC can help you with any type of case.
Compensation for a Catastrophic Injury
Without the financial compensation that you could receive from a personal injury lawsuit, your family may struggle to make ends meet with a catastrophic injury. You may be dealing with expensive medical procedures, devices, medications, and around-the-clock care. You may also suffer losses such as lost wages, lost capacity to earn, diminished quality of life, pain and suffering, and mental anguish. These are all compensable losses in a personal injury claim in California. Filing a civil lawsuit can bring your family the financial relief that it needs to pay for your present and future foreseeable needs.
Don’t Wait – Time Is Running Out
California has strict laws in place that you must follow when bringing a personal injury case. One of the most important laws is the statute of limitations. This is a legal deadline on your right to file. In California, the statute of limitations is two years for most personal injury cases. If more than two years have passed from the date of your accident, you may find that you are barred from making a financial recovery. This is why it is important to contact an attorney in Los Angeles as soon as possible after suffering a catastrophic injury.
