What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A “catastrophic injury” is permanently life-altering. They are typically irreversible, and a complete recovery will not be possible. This means that a catastrophic injury is likely to affect the victim’s ability to work as well as their quality of life. It will likely require ongoing medical care.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Common consequences of catastrophic injuries include:
- Loss of or damage to mental faculties
- Loss of one or more limbs
- Loss of movement, including fine motor skills
Living with a new catastrophic injury inevitably takes a lot out on you, especially as you are forced to confront how you will cover your medical expenses and lost income. We understand how to strategically advocate for individuals and families in these unimaginably difficult scenarios. Our Atlanta catastrophic injury attorneys can evaluate your circumstances and walk you through your legal options.
We Can Help You Seek Just Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries
When you sustain catastrophic injuries through no fault of your own, the responsible party or parties need to be held financially accountable for your new reality and its life-altering consequences. Our team at Cunningham Bounds may be able to negotiate a fair settlement with the at-fault party or their insurer. If an acceptable settlement cannot be reached, you will need to consider civil litigation.
Because there are time limits associated with seeking compensation through civil litigation, it is in your best interest to get legal advice as soon as possible after you suffer a catastrophic injury. Waiting too long can prevent you from securing the compensation that you are owed.
Our attorneys are fierce litigators who are not afraid to go to court. When you come to us for help, we will determine liability, review how the legal process works, and fight to deliver an optimal outcome that gets you the compensation you need to move forward.
