When an injury or death is the result of another person’s negligent actions, these problems are only worsened by the hassle of having to deal with insurance adjusters. People who suffer serious or catastrophic injuries at the expense of others are often entitled to obtain compensation for costs they have incurred as a direct result of the incident.
DID YOU KNOW?
A serious or catastrophic injury can include any type of physical trauma that is life-threatening or has a significant impact on one's life over a period of time. Spinal cord injury, brain damage, amputation, severe burns, and internal organ damage may all be considered catastrophic injuries with long-term ramifications for the injured client. A victim must keep ongoing costs in mind before settling for less than will be needed for the future consequences of the accident.
WHAT TO DO NOW
Expenses such as the cost of medical care, rehabilitation, and physical therapy, as well as lost income for time missed at work, loss of earning capacity in the future, and other losses are all recoverable in court. Scott Pryor Law helps clients anticipate and calculate such expenses, seeking the highest settlements possible. At-fault and uninsured/underinsured insurance policies are meant to cover these expenses in the event they are needed; nonetheless, insurance companies commonly drag their feet on the settlement numbers or try to deny liability altogether in order to increase their profit margin.
