We Will Fight For The Compensation Your Injuries Demand

When an accident leaves you with catastrophic injuries, your life changes in many ways. You may not yet know how your future will look with these injuries. Although your health is your top priority, you also need to consider how you will take care of yourself and your family during and after your recovery. You need a law firm that will fight for you to make sure you receive compensation that matches these needs. The experienced trial attorneys at CraigWilliams, PLC, help accident victims all over central Virginia recover damages from serious injuries.

Understanding Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries differ from regular injuries in that they may change your life in a permanent way, and also affect your family. They can result from any type of accident, but some accidents are more likely to result in severe injuries than others. Anytime you have a big difference between the sizes of vehicles and the protection of the individuals, such as a motorcycle crash or an accident with a tractor trailer, the chances of severe injuries increases.

The serious injuries we see most often include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI): When you have a head injury, you may have differing levels of damage. You can treat most TBIs, but you may have some level of injury that stays with you for years to come, including memory loss, problems thinking, mood swings and reduced motor skills.
  • Spinal cord injury: Trauma to your spine can leave you either partially or totally paralyzed, resulting in additional problems with breathing, circulation, reflexes and pain.
  • Severe burn injury: Aside from being very painful, burns can leave you with infection, disfigurement and reduced limb function.

These are just a few examples of catastrophic injuries, but any injury that leaves you unable to work or provide for your family may qualify.

You Will Need Support For Years To Come

These injuries may require tremendous resources to treat, including surgical operations, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and long-term in-home care. Even home renovations may be necessary, such as installing ramps, widening doorways or putting in grab bars to make everyday life possible. You may be unable to work for a time, or even permanently.

The insurance company will try to convince you to settle your personal injury claim right away, possibly before the full extent of your injuries are known. They are trying to pay the least amount possible. You must trust your attorney to look out for you. Don't sign anything from the insurance company without seeking your lawyer's advice. And early settlement could leave you without the financial resources you need for your injuries in the years to come. Once you settle, you won't have another chance. Make it count!
