Catastrophic injuries are serious and come with life-changing implications. You may be permanently disabled, disfigured, or otherwise injured to the point where the way you conduct your life or work will never be the same.
You may require ongoing medical care, medical equipment, or personal assistance for daily tasks. These types of injuries can be a tragic turn of events for families who must find a way to cope.
In the face of such injuries, you should be compensated fairly for the effects they cause by those responsible. Whether your condition was caused by a car accident with a drunk driver, a negligent property owner, or some other negligent party, you deserve justice.
At Childers & McCain, our mission is to help you recover compensatory damages through a personal injury claim or lawsuit. As your legal representative, we take on the fight for you, letting the insurance company know that we will match them in dedication, resources, knowledge, and resolve.
Addressing Catastrophic Injuries in Personal Injury Claims
Catastrophic injuries are defined by the extent of damage they cause as well as the level of debilitation that occurs.
Examples of such injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Spine injuries
- Severe burn injuries
- Amputation of a limb
- Permanent disfigurement
- Organ impairment/damage
These types of injuries often lead to a loss of capacity to work, loss of enjoyment of life, need for many kinds of therapies, home renovations to accommodate a new way of life, mental and emotional suffering, and more. Getting the financial resources you need to handle these issues is imperative which is why you need professional representation from a firm you can trust.
What Compensation Can You Receive for Serious Injuries?
Our catastrophic injury lawyers in Macon can help get you compensation to cover any of the following:
- Ongoing treatment or care for your injuries
- Pain and suffering resulting from your injuries
- Funding for adaptive equipment or home renovations is needed to help you obtain a better quality of life
- Compensation for your spouse or children if your injuries have caused them to be deprived of physical or emotional companionship
- Loss of the ability to work or earn a living
In some cases, we can even help you pursue punitive damages that are intended to punish the perpetrator for particularly egregious negligence that led to your accident.
Will My Settlement Be Taxed?
