What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Almost any injury might seem catastrophic. However, for an injury to legally be considered catastrophic, it must severely affect the individual for the foreseeable future. It must also prevent the victim from remaining employed. Finally, the injury must have happened unexpectedly.
We’ve seen catastrophic injuries come about from car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and more. When a catastrophic injury occurs, the individual often cannot return to work. They lose their mobility and their independence. Sometimes, even their personalities are medically affected. Here are just a few of the injuries that cause these lasting effects:
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal Injuries
- Broken bones
- Disfigurement and or amputation
Each one of these injuries can lead to further complications, both physically and mentally. And, the recovery time extends much longer than more minor injuries. So, victims won’t be able to transition quickly back to how life was before their accident. Instead, they will have to face new challenges that they could have avoided.
What Causes Catastrophic Injury?
The biggest task for a catastrophic injury lawyer in New Mexico to complete is to determine who caused the injury. This requires us to investigate exactly what happened to your loved one that day. The process begins at your free case evaluation and consultation, where we will listen to your situation and determine whether or not you may have a case.
Then, we will ask you for any documentation you may have concerning the accident. This might include photographs, witness statements, and the name and phone number of the other parties’ insurance companies. We will take all of this into consideration, and then look into the facts ourselves.
What causes catastrophic injury? It can be a number of things. In some cases, the accident is caused by two or more parties. Make sure you don’t miss any details, and employ a knowledgeable New Mexico accident attorney from Lerner and Rowe. We will work hard to build an effective case from the evidence and determine what to do next. That way, you can focus on recovery.
How Does a New Mexico Catastrophic Injuries Lawyer Win Compensation?
After building your case, your attorney will decide exactly what amount of compensation to demand. When coming up with an amount, the following factors will be considered:
- Past and future medical bills
- Cost of physical therapy
- Cost of psychiatric therapy
- Prescription medication costs
- Cost of medical devices needed for the home
- Pain and suffering
- Other home improvements, to increase accessibility
- Lost past and future wages
Then, they will draft a demand letter, and send it to the insurance companies of the parties involved. From there, they will receive all communications so that you don’t have to. They will fight low offers, and if necessary, represent you and your family in court.
