When Is An Injury Catastrophic?

Catastrophic injuries permanently change the way you live. They may leave you with severe disabilities, long-term health problems and a shortened life span. You may be unable to work or engage in the activities you once loved.

At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we represent victims of catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Paralysis and spinal cord damage
  • Severe burns
  • Damaged organs
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Open head trauma
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Serious back injuries

We also handle tragic cases that end in death.

Why These Cases Are Different And Why We're Equipped To Handle Them

In catastrophic car accident injury cases, much more is at stake. The medical expenses alone can number well into the millions of dollars. Add to that the cost of ongoing rehabilitation, long-term care and a lifetime of lost wages, and you can see why these claims are so significant.

Securing a strong outcome requires a painstaking approach. Proving the extent of your injuries, for example, may require the testimony of specialists and other medical experts. We may also need to establish:

  • Who was at fault, and to what degree
  • What amount of lost wages are connected to your accident
  • What future expenses you're likely to incur as a result of your injuries
  • What dollar amount is a reasonable estimation of your pain and suffering

As you can see, it's not easy to translate the countless ramifications of your injury into a single dollar amount. Because our legal team includes an attorney who previously worked for insurance companies, we understand how the other side will value your claim. This means we know how to present a compelling case to help you obtain the full compensation you deserve.
