Legal Assistance to Recover Adequate Financial Compensation
Catastrophic injuries often require the victim to be constantly supervised and assisted with many or all daily living tasks for the remainder of his or her life. In addition, the financial costs involved to provide rehabilitation, medical care, adaptive equipment, and other essentials for a lifetime tend to exceed an entire lifetime’s worth of earnings. In consideration of the extreme nature of these types of injuries and the expenses involved to enable the victim to live with some degree of dignity, it is critical to obtain competent, experienced legal counsel immediately. Whiteman & Burdette assists the loved ones who will be caring for the injured person to seek adequate compensation to enable proper care to be provided for the life of the severely disabled victim.
Personal Injury Claims for Catastrophic Injuries and Pain & Suffering
The quality of life of the individual who suffered a catastrophic injury will be largely based on the personal injury claim and financial recovery on his or her behalf. If the injury was the result of an intentional or negligent act of another person or entity, a dangerous or defective product, medical malpractice, or similar liability, it is critical to pursue compensation for damages and losses in addition to medical and care expenses, including lost wages (and future wages), pain and suffering, psychological counseling and support, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and permanent disability.
