Defining a Catastrophic Injury

A catastrophic injury is a serious or extreme injury or illness that impacts a victim in a considerable way and requires significant medical treatment. While many catastrophic injuries are permanent, that is not always the case, as some will improve. Serious injuries like this often require ongoing or multiple medical treatments or changes to support lifespan and quality.

If you were hurt in an accident that left you in significant pain, facing numerous injuries, life-changing health complications, and perhaps even an inability to work, let our Georgia catastrophic injury attorneys help you. We work with people facing a wide range of injuries and illnesses brought on by the negligence of others. Some examples of catastrophic injuries we help clients with include:

Why You Need a Catastrophic Injury Attorney in Georgia

Facing these types of serious injuries on your own can be difficult and costly. Though insurance companies may owe you money, they will do anything they can to reduce what they pay. In cases where your losses are so severe that they have long-lasting consequences, you need an attorney who can calculate an accurate estimate of your damages. 

When you work with our Georgia catastrophic injury lawyer, you get hands-on support and guidance from a team that knows how to hold those who did this to you responsible. Even more importantly, you pay us nothing for our services upfront, and you only pay us if you win your case. That means there is no risk to you in hiring an attorney to represent you in this manner.

With years of experience, you can expect our attorneys to provide you with exceptional support. We can handle every aspect of the claim and lawsuit for you, providing a wide range of resources along the way. Some of the ways our legal team will work with you and support you in this process include the following:

Gather Evidence in Your Case

In an accident like this, it is critical to have all of the evidence possible to prove who did this to you. With that information and guidance, we can pursue maximum compensation for you. Our team will review the available evidence and use expert witnesses, accident recreation tools, and a wide range of additional resources to gather all available evidence to prove your case.

Determine Your Losses

One of the most complicated components of a catastrophic injury case is estimating the value of your losses, especially if your care is ongoing. With our experience as catastrophic injury attorneys, we can provide you with better insight and ensure we pursue compensation that allows you to get the medical care you need. We also want to ensure you can maintain the quality of life you expect with adequate compensation to do so.

We Build a Strong Case

Insurance companies in these accidents want to reduce the compensation paid as much as possible, and they can use a variety of strategies to do so. With our experience, we will ensure you do not become a victim again. We build a strong legal case that documents your losses, who caused them, and what you should be owed in these cases.

Exceptional Support While You Recover

Our goal is to handle the legal challenges you are facing so that you can focus on your recovery and healing. We talk to and manage the insurance company, and you do not have to feel like you are being abused in the process. Our legal team will work closely with you over the course of your claim and fight for your best interests. 

Navigate Comparative Negligence as it Applies to Your Case

A very significant complication of many catastrophic injury cases is comparative negligence, which means that the police and insurance company believe you hold some degree of responsibility for the accident. Our goal is to minimize and eliminate that belief by providing evidence to demonstrate your lack of fault. You can count on us to work carefully to ensure that these claims are fully exhausted.

Handle the Insurance Company’s Claim

Once we have a good idea of what your long-term losses are, our catastrophic injury attorneys in Georgia file your insurance company. We answer all of the questions the insurance company has, support you in the process of providing only the necessary documentation, and protect your right to privacy. Let us negotiate on your behalf.

File a Lawsuit When Needed

If the insurance company is not treating you fairly, we make it our goal to pursue legal action in a court of law to allow a judge and jury to listen to your losses and provide compensation to you. Every case is very different, and while most of our cases are settled without going to court, you can depend on us to fight for your right to compensation if necessary. We are highly experienced trial attorneys.

Why You Should Not Just Settle Your Case

It is common for injured individuals to just want to move on with their lives, and that often leads them to settle their claims too soon. We do not want you to wait, and we will work aggressively but efficiently to ensure your case is not delayed. However, there are several key reasons why you do not want to settle your case too soon:

  • You have a lot on the line. With a catastrophic injury, you likely need comprehensive compensation to continue to pay for your long-term medical needs. If you settle too soon, you may not get enough of the funds you need.
  • You may not be sure what your losses are just yet. Many people with serious injuries like this are not sure how much they will improve, and if you do not recover, you need a far higher level of compensation than if you do.
  • Explore all types of losses you have. In catastrophic injury cases like this, you likely have significant medical bills, but your losses are likely far more than this and could include a significant amount of noneconomic compensation.

When the time comes to settle your claim, you can do so with confidence when you have our catastrophic injury attorneys in Georgia by your side. We know how to make them pay, and we will work extensively to ensure you exhaust all potential options. Expect us to answer all of your questions and guide you throughout the process.

Common Losses Associated with Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries create significant losses. You know that because you are facing it right now. You should receive compensation for all losses you suffer that were brought on by another party’s negligence or recklessness.

Our attorneys will help you navigate these losses by discussing how much this accident has changed your life and impacted your relationships. Our goal is to ensure you know what your legal rights are by getting to know who and everything you are facing as a result of this negligent action. Take into consideration some of the financial losses you may be owed.

  • Medical bills from the incident: We often work with clients who are faced with thousands, if not millions, of dollars in medical bills from their accident.
  • Medical costs for ongoing care: With catastrophic injuries, the fact that you may need ongoing medical care to some degree for the rest of your life is very much possible, and you need compensation to meet those financial obligations.
  • Lost time at work: Any time you could not work due to your injury is a time when you should receive compensation for your wages and benefits.
  • Loss of earning ability: You may find it difficult to continue to work if you have long-lasting or permanent pain or discomfort.
  • Property damage: If you were in a car accident or other incident in which you suffered damage to your property, you may be owed compensation for those losses.
  • Pain and suffering: Catastrophic injuries often lead to chronic and acute pain, and that limits your quality of life. We provide you with the legal support and guidance you need in these situations.
  • Emotional trauma: The mental impact that a catastrophic injury creates can be incredibly challenging to manage.
