Any kind of personal injury can involve medical bills, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs, but catastrophic injuries are particularly severe. A catastrophic injury can lead to life-long medical expenses and permanent disability that prevents you from living the life you once enjoyed.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, consult with Attorney Heath Sullivan at Gulf South Law Firm. As a knowledgeable catastrophic injury lawyer in Gulfport, he can investigate your case, uncover your legal options, and help you determine if you are entitled to compensation.
What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are particularly severe and often cause temporary or permanent disability. Many people who suffer catastrophic injuries are unable to work or support themselves. These injuries can result from many types of accidents, and almost always result in overwhelming medical bills and other expenses. Catastrophic injuries are not only physically devastating but can be financially and emotionally devastating to both the injured individual and their family.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Extensive and serious burns
- Organ damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
It’s not uncommon to see people suffer catastrophic injuries in construction site accidents, auto accidents, defective product and medical device accidents, pharmaceutical accidents, workplace accidents, and even the exposure to toxic chemicals and other substances.
Compensation for Traumatic Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can occur as a result of any number of accidents including work accidents, car crashes, and even medical malpractice. Brain injury lawsuits often result in large settlements because the victim will often require constant care or assistance for the remainder of their life. In cases like this, being represented by a Gulfport brain injury lawyer can often mean the difference between getting a fair settlement and an unfair settlement.
Symptoms of a brain injury can often include any of the following:
- Headaches or dizziness, light sensitivity
- Loss of memory
- Inability to focus, or mental fuzziness
- Depression, emotional behavior, personality changes
- Fatigue and changes in sleep patterns
- Blurred vision or slurred speech
- Numbness or paralysis
If you have experienced any of the above symptoms or believe that you may have a brain injury as a result of your accident, seek medical attention immediately and contact a traumatic brain injury attorney as soon as possible.
Compensation for Spinal Cord Injuries
Damage to the spinal cord can often result in varying degrees of paralysis; whether it be partial or complete. Whether your injuries have left you completely paralyzed or with limited range of movement, you deserve compensation. By hiring a Gulfport spinal cord injury lawyer, you ensure that you will be strongly represented and receive the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
