What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is one that leaves the victim paralyzed, severely disabled, unable to work, and/or dependent on a caregiver. Examples of catastrophic injuries include brain and spinal cord injuries, or other injuries that cause paralysis. Serious motor vehicle accidents can result in catastrophic injuries because of the size and weight of vehicles, and the impact of a collision.
Catastrophic Injury from an Auto Accident
The Tenge Law Firm works with the families of victims who have been catastrophically injured in car, motorcycle, truck, SUV rollover, mass transit, and drunk driving accidents. Catastrophic injury victims typically require a lifetime of medical treatment, physical rehabilitation, and help with everyday tasks. Though it is the hope that victims will find effective ways to cope with and conquer obstacles, the reality is that these injuries often leave victims in a precarious physical, emotional, and financial state. Since the cost of lifelong medical attention and caregiver services quickly adds up, victims and their loved ones usually face significant financial hurdles in addition to their physical challenges and limitations.
The Tenge Law Firm can help. Our team can conduct a thorough investigation of the incident, and build a solid case against the liable party. We use all our resources to do so. We have medical, financial, and occupational experts we use to prove your case and to evaluate your damages. Through the use of evidence and the testimony of expert witnesses, we are able not only to prove liability, but also to determine the proper amount of compensation a victim justly deserves for his or her injury.
Wrongful Death after an Auto Accident
The most devastating motor vehicle accidents result in the loss of life. In these situations, the family of the deceased can file a wrongful death claim against the person responsible for the accident that killed their loved one. By proving the fault of the person who caused the accident, families may recover damages for unpaid medical bills, funeral costs, loss of income, as well as loss of companionship, support, and consortium. In cases of egregiously wrongful behavior causing death, the family may also be awarded punitive damages.
