Car accidents, slip and fall accidents, and workplace accidents are common examples of incidents that may end in catastrophic injuries. A victim’s life can evolve in various ways when an unexpected injury befalls them. Regardless of the cause, when another party’s misconduct or recklessness leads to a catastrophic injury, you have the right to pursue a just outcome. If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury, you might be entitled to financial compensation for your damages.

Dealing with Injuries and Treatment Plans
Victims may qualify to collect financial compensation for their injuries and other damages, but this depends on many factors. No two injuries are identical in origin or outcome. As a result, legal teams often engage in detailed investigations of an accident.
In this stage of your case, your lawyer will seek to collect as many detailed forms of evidence as possible. Some possible forms of evidence your lawyer may gather could include the following:
- Cellphone records
- Police reports
- Witness reports
- Photos captured at the scene of the incident
- Video footage
- Maintenance records
These forms of evidence often pertain to the medical treatment plans that patients undergo after suffering a catastrophic injury. The severe nature of these injuries often requires an equally serious approach to diagnosis, treatment, and care. Catastrophic injuries may require significant funds to cover complex medical procedures and years of treatment.
Seeking Financial Compensation
A diagnosis can sound discouraging to victims at first, but there is hope. Depending on the circumstances of the incident that caused the injury, you may be owed financial compensation to cover your medical bills and other expenses. Examples of recoverable damages that you may be owed include the following:
- Past and future medical bills
- Tests and exams
- Surgeries and operations
- Prescription medications
- Emergency medical transportation services
- Rehabilitation and therapy programs
- Mental health counseling and therapy
- Assistive medical devices such as wheelchairs
Recovering Expenses for Mental Health Treatments
Many accidents that end in a catastrophic injury for one or more parties may produce a variety of psychological complications. The trauma of seeing a disastrous situation unfold can linger in the mind of a victim or witness for years after an accident. As the Mayo Clinic points out, conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are often accompanied by disrupted sleep patterns, troubling flashbacks, and recurring memories of the situation.
PTSD and similar psychological conditions often benefit from treatment methods such as psychotherapy. Victims who suffer from PTSD may be worried about covering the medical bills associated with these kinds of services. When you have a lawyer from our firm working on your side, they will take these types of damages into account as they fight to recover any forms of monetary compensation that you and your loved ones may be owed.

Some Laws May Limit Your Ability to Act
A variety of state, local, and federal laws may impact your ability to take legal action after an accident that results in a severe personal injury. As an example, the statute of limitations in Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a) shows that you have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida.
By contacting our legal team soon after your incident, we can file your lawsuit on time. A lawyer from our firm will get to work by collecting evidence and building up your case. At some point in your case, other parties are likely to get involved. Your lawyer will handle correspondence with insurance agents, liable parties, law enforcement, medical professionals, witnesses, and others on your behalf.
