Your Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
Catastrophic injuries happen to Georgia residents frequently, and these injuries can permanently keep a person from working and fully enjoying their family and way of life as they would have prior to the accident. Catastrophic injuries can involve permanent disabilities or have long-term effects, such as permanent disfigurement, brain injury, and paralysis.
A catastrophic injury can be the result of many different circumstances. These include automobile and truck accidents, accidents in the workplace, motorcycle and bicycle accidents, falls, sports and recreational-related activities, along with accidents in the construction and other industrial industries. There are also personal injuries suffered by patients which include surgical procedure errors, defective medical devices or drugs, and misdiagnoses in treatment.
Lifelong Injuries and Damages
Regardless of whether you or your loved one has been severely injured in a car accident, a boating incident, or due to medical error, you must be sure sufficient medical care is received. Oftentimes, this care may be long-term and for the rest of the injured person's life.
When a person suffers a catastrophic injury, the effects of that injury may be present for years after the accident. There can be complications, infections, follow-up procedures, physical therapy, and ongoing medications. A catastrophic injury could one day develop secondary medical problems months or even years after the original injury happened. When there is an injury to the brain or spinal cord, there can be any number of issues, such as migraines, memory loss, and cognitive difficulties.
That's why you should contact Tosi Law immediately to make certain your rights are fully protected, and you can properly make a claim for the compensation you or a family member will need in the years ahead.
A catastrophic injury can have a severe impact on an entire family. If the victim is the primary breadwinner, he or she will likely not be able to contribute to the household income as they were before the accident. In fact, a victim's catastrophic injury may cause him or her to be unable to work permanently, which means no income from that person. In addition, the victim may require lifelong medical assistance.
There is really no limit to the kind of injury a person can suffer in a catastrophic injury case. Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries are caused by the negligence, lack of care, or recklessness of another person or entity. These include traumatic brain injury, burns, spinal cord injury, paralysis, the loss of a limb or its use, and damaged organs like ruptured kidneys, spleen, liver, or bowels. All these types of injuries can be life-threatening.
Types of Catastrophic Injury Damages
The catastrophic injury attorneys at Tosi Law help our clients recover the damages and compensation they need to move forward in their lives when their injuries are caused by an individual or organization's negligent, reckless, or intentional conduct. This type of injury will require the victim to need ongoing medical attention and lengthy hospital stays.
The damages for a catastrophic injury can be significant. They include medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and other expenses. In addition, our attorneys will ask for substantial noneconomic damages to help deal with a life with such an injury, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, mental anguish, permanent disability, and disfigurement.
The medical expenses, the cost of daily nursing care and other related expenses can ruin a person financially. These costs can include emergency medical expenses, continuing medical care, visiting nursing care, prescriptions and other medications, physical and occupational therapy, mental health counseling, durable medical equipment such as a home hospital bed, wheelchairs, a Hoyer lift, and the expense of retrofitting your home to accommodate a wheelchair.
