Types & Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury is considered any type of injury that takes a devastating toll on the victim’s quality of life. Catastrophic injuries tend to result in long-lasting, if not permanent damage to the victim, and are often life-threatening, debilitating, or disfiguring.
At Pacific Attorney Group, we have experience representing victims of all types of catastrophic injuries, such as:
- Brain Injuries
- Birth Injuries
- Cerebral Palsy, Ebbs Palsy, Brachial Plexus Injury
- Burn Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Quadriplegia or Paraplegia
- Loss of Vision or Hearing
There are several circumstances that can result in this type of injury. When a person suffers a catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another, they should speak to an attorney about their legal rights to compensation. California personal injury laws entitle accident victims to compensation if they can prove negligence, recklessness, or carelessness caused or contributed to their injury.
At Pacific Attorney Group, we will thoroughly review the circumstances surrounding your injury in order to determine if negligence was a factor. If it is, we can help you file a lawsuit against the responsible party in an effort to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost earnings, property damage, and emotional trauma. We have handled a variety of catastrophic injury claims, such as those in which the injury occurred due to a car accident, bicycle accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, bus accident, truck accident, medical malpractice, defective drug, defective product, dog bite or attack, nursing home abuse or neglect, a slip & fall, toxic exposure, or a workplace accident.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a catastrophic injury, and you believe another is at fault, a Los Angeles personal injury lawyer at Pacific Attorney Group is available to review your claim and help you take legal action!
