What are Your Rights After a Catastrophic Injury?
When an individual is involved in a serious accident or suffers injury caused by intentional misconduct, the physical, emotional, and financial consequences can be huge. Severe and catastrophic injury can mean staggering medical bills, extended periods of disability, and mounting unpaid bills the victim tries to recover from their injuries. We handle claims involving all types of injury, ranging from soft tissue injuries that will heal within a reasonable period of time to permanent debilitating injuries, including the following:
- Third-degree burns
- Loss of use of limbs
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage causing paralysis
- Amputation of limbs
- Severe joint injuries
- Herniated disc and other back injuries
If you suffer these types of injuries or other forms of significant injury, you may be entitled to compensation that may include but is not limited to the following:
- Repair or replacement of your vehicle
- Past and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Impact on quality of life
- Lost income & diminished future earnings
- Burial and funeral expenses in wrongful death cases
- Punitive damages in certain cases
Let Us Handle the Insurance Company
It is possible that you may be contacted by a representative from the responsible party's insurance company following a serious accident. The person who speaks to you may seem concerned about your well-being and interested in resolving your liability claim. Even if the insurance adjuster seems amicable, however, you must never lose sight of the fact that the adjuster's only function is to diminish the value of your injury claim. The insurance company may minimize your injuries, claim they are pre-existing or even attempting to assert that you are legally responsible for causing your own injuries. It is never a good idea to discuss your personal injury claim with the negligent party's insurance provider without legal representation. Insurance companies process thousands of these claims each year and have the expertise and skills to take advantage of personal injury victims without representation.
How an Attorney Can Help
Our Richmond personal injury lawyers at Goeing Goeing & McQuinn PLLC typically employ accident reconstruction experts for accident analysis, medical experts to evaluate injuries, and/or economic experts/forensic accountants to calculate damages. Although the majority of personal injury lawsuits settle during negotiations, our legal team prepares cases with the assumption that the case will go to trial. Thus, we focus on constructing a convincing case based on compelling legal arguments and supported by persuasive evidence. We know that insurance companies handle cases differently when they know that the law firm representing an injury victim will not hesitate to take a case to trial if the insurer fails to deal fairly with their client.
