What to Do After a Catastrophic Injury

If you’ve been in an accident or the victim of a serious injury, you may be wondering, “What do I do if I’ve been severely hurt?” You’re unsure of the injury recovery process, and want to be sure you don’t make any mistakes which could be costly. Here’s a look at the steps to take prior to filing a severe or catastrophic injury lawsuit.

Seek Medical Help

  • First and foremost, it’s essential that you seek medical care right away. Even if your injuries seem minor at the time, they could be hiding serious problems which won’t be symptomatic until later. A prime example of this is a concussion from a car accident or while playing a sport. Many people are able to continue their activities even after receiving a head injury. It may be many hours, or even days, later before symptoms begin showing. The longer you go without treatment for a severe injury, the greater are your chances of longer-term damage.

Keep Detailed Records

  • As soon as you’re able, write down all details of your accident. If you wait too long, your memory will fade, and you may miss an important fact. Get a copy of the police report if one exists or any other documentation about the incident, such as insurance records or medical reports.Continue to track the effects of the accident, including all medical treatment and how you respond. Note all symptoms, even those you may not be sure are related to the incident.

    Don’t forget to record how your life has changed, and whether you need help getting dressed or getting to doctor appointments.

    Catastrophic injury lawsuits can seek awards for more than the actual medical expenses. Your suit can also include compensation for the pain and suffering involved and the impact it has on your life. The more detail you provide to substantiate your claims, the stronger your case will be.

Hire an Experienced Attorney

  • Choose a personal injury attorney with experience in your situation, whether it’s a car accident, workplace injury or something else. Meet with them to discuss your case, and bring all of your documentation with you. The more information you can provide, the better prepared an attorney will be to provide effective legal counsel for your situation.The attorney will construct a case based on the information you provide and any other documentation they can obtain. They’ll give you an estimated amount you can expect to receive for the lawsuit, based on the facts. Continue to work with your attorney and do what they request in order to ensure that a solid case is presented in court.

    Following these steps should help you begin the process of seeking – and receiving – fair compensation for your situation. Talk to us at the Deuterman Law Group for answers to your questions about how to properly bring a catastrophic injury claim.

What Are the Benefits of Filing a Catastrophic Injury Lawsuit?

A lawsuit for a severe or catastrophic injury is filed on behalf of the victim in order to receive compensation that covers expenses resulting from the incident in question. This compensation may be listed under several categories, depending on the exact situation. Here are the main categories:

Payment for medical bills, past and future

  • A person may be injured in a car accident and have a spinal cord injury which renders them paralyzed. They will need ongoing therapy to prevent muscle atrophy. They may also require medication and other treatments as well as assistive devices such as a wheelchair or handicap accessible transportation.

Damages for Physical and Emotional Pain and Suffering

  • This is often hard to determine, but the amount of pain suffered is taken into account as well as the emotional impact. In the case of the car accident, the person is no longer able to be as independent as before, and has to adjust to not being able to walk, which can take an emotional toll.

Lost Wages, Present and Future

  • In the same scenario, the compensation for lost wages will depend on the person’s ability to obtain employment in the future. If the accident victim’s job required walking and was a skilled trade they can no longer perform, they may receive at least partial compensation for the loss of income, depending on whether they can obtain another source of comparably-paid employment.

Out of-Pocket Expenses

  • If the person has to hire someone to assist them in daily tasks, the expense would be included. Other items would include the cost of a wheelchair, and alterations that had to be made to the home to accommodate the victim.

Punitive Damages

  • This refers to money awarded as punishment to the defendant, and often goes to the plaintiff. In the car accident example, if the defendant was driving while intoxicated, the case may include punitive damages.
