Sugar Land Serious Injury Attorney
Catastrophic Injuries & Your Rights
A catastrophic injury is generally defined as an injury that is significant and life-changing. An injury of this kind will have a lasting and sometimes permanent impact on a person and may prevent him or her from working or taking part in activities he or she once enjoyed. Recovery may be long and arduous, and medical expenses are likely to stack up quickly. In these cases, seeking an attorney's help may be your best course of action.
When catastrophic injuries are caused by another's actions (or failure to act, in some cases) the injured party may be entitled to financial compensation. This money, often paid out by at-fault parties' insurance companies, is meant to compensate the victim for the physical and emotional trauma he or she has experienced. Of course, there is no amount of money that could possibly make up for a serious injury, but it can alleviate the pressure of mounting medical bills and financial problems caused by lost earnings.
