DETERMINING COMPENSATION AFTER A CATASTROPHIC INJURY

On Behalf of | Nov 6, 2020 | Motor Vehicle Accidents, Truck Accidents

Any injury sustained by a person can be hard to handle, specifically when you consider the emotional, financial, and physical hardships that are endured. However, a serious, catastrophic injury normally results in even more complications.

A serious, catastrophic injury often requires the person who is injured to undergo multiple procedures and/or surgeries. They may require long-term care, and in some instances, they may require customization to their cars, home, and more.

These things make seeking compensation and the help of an experienced personal injury attorney imperative. Here are some things we think you should know.

HOW MUCH IS YOUR CASE WORTH?

There are a lot of variables that go in to answering this question, some things that need to be considered are:

  • What was the cause of the crash?
  • What damages were sustained?
  • What is the severity of the injuries sustained?
  • What is the injured parties’ age, and much more?

All of these are taken into consideration when determining how much an injured party could be offered or awarded by the responsible party’s insurance company. For example, if the injured party is young with a high paying job, and the serious injury prevents them from working any longer, the loss of future earning could require a higher amount of compensation be awarded. There are also state caps that may be considered and could limit the compensation they receive.
