Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Windsor Connecticut
Serving Manchester, Vernon & Enfield
Personal injuries can range from minor to severe. The more serious the injury, the greater the disruption in the life of you or your loved ones. As a result, your settlement or award will likely involve larger numbers since you are legally entitled to be paid for all of your injuries. Given what is at stake, if you have a life-changing injury, you should have the help of a Manchester catastrophic injury attorney to protect your legal rights.
The Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can result from a number of accidents, including:
- Car crashes
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Multi vehicle collisions
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Work injuries
While there is no such thing as an ordinary personal injury claim, catastrophic injuries are far more complex. The most important thing is understanding the scope and extent of your injuries and how they will impact you in the future. You only have one chance to receive compensation for your injuries, and you do not want to leave money on the table when settling your claim.
Your Damages After a Catastrophic Injury
You might be entitled to the following damages after a catastrophic injury:
- Lost wages both in the past and future
- Pain and suffering
- The cost for medical care resulting from the injury for the rest of your life
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death damages if a loved one was killed
One issue always present in these cases is how much your damages would be in the future. You can be paid for damages that you suffer even decades into the future, but you may not always know what things will cost. This is why you need an attorney who knows how to value your claim and work with economic experts to anticipate future costs. The last thing you want is to run out of money in the future when you still need medical care and cannot work.
Dealing with a serious injury is extremely stressful financially. You can face mounting medical bills and the loss of your income. The legal process may feel like one more thing you have to deal with, but you should not go through the claim process alone.
Hiring an attorney gives you and your family someone who can handle the details of your claim and provide you peace of mind knowing you have an advocate and counselor on your side.
It is no small matter to settle one of these cases, but the insurance company may be trying to rush you and your family into a settlement. Without an attorney, your family’s long-term future could be at the whim of that insurance company.
