Understanding Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are severe and often have long-term, if not lifelong, effects. They can result from various incidents, including car accidents, workplace mishaps, medical malpractice, or slip-and-fall accidents. Such injuries often involve significant harm to the spinal cord, brain, or other major organs, potentially leading to permanent disability or disfigurement. 

Common catastrophic injuries include: 

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Organ damage
  • Birth injuries 
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) 
  • Amputation or extreme lacerations
  • Paralysis and paralysis 

These kinds of life-changing events often require significant medical attention, leading to costly hospital bills that you shouldn't have to pay for as a result of someone else's negligence. Our attorneys are committed to helping you take legal action and holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions. 

What Are Your Legal Rights After a Catastrophic Injury?

If someone else's negligence or carelessness caused your catastrophic injury, you have the legal right to seek compensation. 

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to:

  • Payment for medical expenses 
  • Lost wages or loss of earning capacity 
  • Pain and suffering damages 
  • Psychological damage compensation 
  • Punitive damages, in some cases

At Metzger Wickersham, our lawyers understand the complexities of catastrophic injury cases and will work hard to ensure you receive full compensation for your losses. 

Evidence in Catastrophic Injury Claims

To pursue a successful compensation claim, it's essential to have solid evidence that links your injury to the negligent party. 

This evidence is typically gathered through the following:

  • Medical records 
  • Eyewitness accounts 
  • Expert testimony and medical reports 
  • Accident scene photos or videos 
  • Testimony from expert witnesses 
  • Police reports 
  • Documentation of lost wages or earning capacity

Having an experienced lawyer on your side is essential to gathering and presenting the evidence required for a successful outcome. At Metzger Wickersham, we understand the complexities associated with catastrophic injury cases and can provide the necessary legal counsel to help you obtain the maximum compensation available under the law. 

Our Approach to Catastrophic Injury Cases

At Metzger Wickersham, we understand the profound implications of catastrophic injuries. We take a comprehensive approach to representing our clients, thoroughly investigating the circumstances of the accident to build a robust case. The evidence we gather - medical reports, witness statements, accident scene photos - is meticulously examined to establish negligence and argue for maximum compensation. 

Our commitment extends beyond the courtroom. Recognizing the financial and emotional upheaval catastrophic injuries can cause, we strive to support our clients in their recovery journey. Our legal team works tirelessly to secure compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, pain, suffering, and future care needs. With us, you do not need to worry about upfront legal fees as we operate on a contingency basis. That is, you pay only if we successfully obtain compensation for you. 

As a victim of a catastrophic injury, your primary role is to focus on recovery. However, you can assist your case by keeping all medical records, receipts of expenses, and documenting your experience during the recovery process. It is also beneficial to inform us immediately if the at-fault party or their insurance company contacts you. We're here to protect your rights and ensure you are not pressured into accepting a settlement that is less than what you deserve.
