Arizona Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
When you are involved in a catastrophic injury accident, you know immediately what the word catastrophic means. It means that your life is changed in an instant and that everything you once knew about your life and your physical abilities is different now due to a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other serious injuries that cause a permanent disability or temporary disabilities, which can last for months or even years, not to mention extensive medical care, rehab and physical therapy, and likely a significant amount of time off from work without pay. When you are seriously injured in a catastrophic accident, your case requires special attention from a skilled Arizona personal injury attorney with experience in handling these types of cases.
The most common expenses associated with catastrophic accidents might surprise you, but the list grows with each line that you read. Here are just some of the many expenses that you'll be faced with if you, or a loved one, are involved in a serious accident and sustain major injuries.
- Medical care expenses: life-saving actions, surgeries, physical therapy, palliative care and nursing home treatment, lengthy stays in the hospital and the ICU, emergency room visits, in-home care, appointment fees for visits with doctors and specialists, medication costs, and more.
- Medical device and supply expenses: wheelchairs, prosthetic body parts, breathing machines and oxygen tanks, emergency alert systems, special beds and bedding, and much more.
- Loss of income: Although this may not at first seem like an expense, the problem for victims of catastrophic injuries is that the medical expenses mount up and your personal expenses, like your mortgage or rent, food bills, utilities bills, credit card bills, car payments, and other expenses do not go away. Pairing this with your loss of ability to work and earn a living can be catastrophic on its own when it comes to your finances.
Equally as important as understanding the types of expenses you may face is understanding that catastrophic injuries can occur at any time and in any place. Many people think that injuries like these can only happen in a car crash, but it isn't true. While car crashes are one of the top two ways in which you can sustain catastrophic injuries, workplace injuries share the same statistic. Arizona slip and fall accidents and machinery-involved injuries at work can have the same serious impact on your life. And while you may think that Workers Compensation insurance will cover your accident, you will likely face the same problems and run-around that many car crash victims get from automobile insurance companies.
Whether your catastrophic injuries were caused by an accident involving machinery, poor safety standards, or another worker in your workplace, or, by the actions of another driver on the road, poor roadway maintenance, or a defect in your vehicle or that of another driver, you deserve help with your expenses and getting your life back on track. That's why it's important to lean on the right Arizona personal injury attorney to help you focus on your recovery while they focus on your legal case.
