Catastrophic Injury Cases in Connecticut

We never know what lies ahead. One small mistake from anyone can lead to an accident with profound implications. Sometimes, vehicular collisions only leave property damage. On the other hand, catastrophic injuries are also possible in these scenarios.

A catastrophic injury occurs when the victim is changed forever. Typically, they will no longer be able to work because of the tragedy. In some cases victims are required to undergo a lifetime of medical care to continue functioning in their daily life. The worst-case scenario is that the victim loses the ability to function independently.

Examples of these injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Spinal injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis
  • Coma

Who Is Liable for the Catastrophic Injury?

Determining the accountability of a catastrophic injury is not always as simple as looking at the other party involved. Several factors can contribute to the case.

The following people can be accountable if the proper evidence is shown:

  • The person who owns the property that caused the injury because of poor maintenance.
  • The business owner whose employee suffered a catastrophic injury while at work.
  • The driver of a vehicle that caused an accident leading to the injury.

It is best to start by consulting an experienced catastrophic injury lawyer to understand your legal options. Contact The Doctor Lawyer Team today.

How Catastrophic Injuries Happen

A catastrophic injury can result from traumatic accidents or acts of violence. If someone has been careless, reckless, or has acted outside of the law, innocent people tend to get hurt—severely at times.

The Doctor Lawyer Team has managed many different cases of catastrophic injury. These include:

  • Vehicle accidents caused by distracted or drunk driving
  • Defective products released to the market
  • Lack of security to protect the premises
  • Dog and other animal bites
  • Train accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bike accidents
  • Falls or slips due to lack of maintenance

What Compensation Is Available to a Victim of Catastrophic Injury?

Anyone who suffers from catastrophic injuries will need extensive medical treatment. As time goes by, they may need additional procedures. In some cases, those who suffered intense injuries need constant medical care for the rest of their lives.

The injury can limit their activities, too. That means they might lose their ability to work and make money. In extreme cases, a victim can require caregivers to do everyday tasks, such as brushing their teeth or eating.

Victims not only deal with the physical pain, but with the emotional stress, as well.

Medical treatments alone cost a significant amount of money. That is why victims need to claim from the at-fault party. That will help ease their medical and financial troubles.

Compensation for victims often covers:

  • Surgeries and treatments
  • At-home care services
  • Rehabilitation therapy
  • Lost wages and employment services
  • Counseling
  • Pain and suffering
  • Future lost earnings

To understand the compensation you can claim after a catastrophic injury, talk to The Doctor Lawyer Team. We are ready to help you through this trying time.

Do Not Delay Your Catastrophic Injury Case

Your priority after a catastrophic accident is your health. That is normal and understandable. You want to return to normalcy as much as possible. That means going to therapy and treatments.

The problem is that a catastrophic injury case has a statute of limitations. If you do not file your claim within two years, you will forego your right to make a claim.
