Providence Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Handling Claims for Life-Changing Injuries

An injury can be considered catastrophic if it creates a permanent change to the health or life of the person who suffers it. When a catastrophic injury occurs, it can make for a complicated and hard-fought civil injury case. Defendants and insurance companies don’t want to be liable for causing such a serious injury, so they will often deny liability as much as possible.

How are Catastrophic Injury Claims Different from Others?

Technically, a catastrophic injury claim is no different than any other personal injury claim. The processes that go into the case remain the same, such as investigating the injury, calculating damages, filing a claim, negotiating for a settlement, and if needed, litigating in court.

The biggest differences in a catastrophic injury claim include:

  • The injuries in question are more likely to be life-changing than the average injury claim.
  • The compensation owed to the plaintiff is likely to be more than the average injury claim.
  • The opposition is more likely to put up a fight with so much compensation on the line.

We can handle any catastrophic injury claim, no matter the type of injury in question.

We can also work alongside expert accountants who can help us prove that you will need significant compensation to pay for future costs associated with medical treatments, special needs, lost wages, pain, suffering, and more.

Long-Term Effects of Catastrophic Injuries

It is important not to overlook the long-term effects of a catastrophic injury. It is not uncommon for a catastrophic injury to cause chronic or frequent pain, for example. It is also typical for a severe injury to call for routine physical therapy or other specialized forms of care. The long-term effects of a catastrophic injury are what can increase the value of the claim significantly.
