A Personal Injury Lawyer for Catastrophic Injuries
Every year, there are thousands of accidents that result in the need for medical care. Some of these are mild to moderate in their severity while others may be serious, life threatening, or fatal. Whenever a person is injured in such a way that their life will be changed forever, it may be considered a catastrophic injury. These injuries include impairment, disability, loss of limb, severe scarring, and so forth, and can impact the way a person is able to enjoy life and maintain a standard of living he or she had prior to the injury.
When negligence is thought to be the cause of the injury, you should ask a Decatur catastrophic injury lawyer to review your case. If it is a catastrophic injury, a greater amount of compensation than the average claim, may be available. For a consultation with a Decatur catastrophic injury lawyer call Andrew R. Lynch, P.C.
Recovering Fair and Just Damages for a Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries include those that are considered to be severe and life changing; for example, burns, brain injuries, and spinal injuries.
Burn Injuries – Heat or chemical burns can cause permanent scars that may affect the victims’ self esteem. They may also cause permanent damage to muscle tissue and nerves; thereby, resulting in chronic pain and discomfort. In some cases, burn victims will require multiple operations, skin grafting, or in some cases an amputation of the limb. If you suffered severe burns in an accident, a Decatur catastrophic injury lawyer can explain your legal options to you during a consultation.
Brain Injuries – Any blow to the head that results in bleeding, bruising, or brain damage can be so severe that it affects the victims life in many ways. For example, they may experience:
- A diminished cognitive capacity
- Insomnia or sleep disorders
- Speech impairment
- Mood swings
- Visual problems
- Chronic pain
- Vegetative state
Spinal Cord Injuries – The spinal cord is responsible for protecting the central nervous system. In the event of the spinal cord becoming damaged, paralysis or loss of feeling below the point of injury could result. Spinal cord injury can be temporary; however, it is often permanent, and usually, the victim will be unable to resume their same lifestyle prior to the accident. If you suffered a spinal cord injury, please call a Georgia brain and spinal cord attorney from our firm.
