Personal injury attorney for the permanently disabled
If you’ve been injured due to the negligent act(s) by another party that results in a permanent disability, it can be life altering for you and your loved ones. The costs that arise from medical treatments, lost wages and the ability to work, and the physical, mental, and emotional pain and suffering that result from becoming permanently disabled have long-lasting effects on your finances as well as the overall quality of your life.
A serious or catastrophic injury can include traumatic brain injury, internal injury to major organs, amputation, severe burns, and spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis.
In addition to seeking damages for medical bills incurred as a direct result of negligence on the part of the defendant, you’re also able to seek compensation for future expenses to treat your disability as well as lost income. In many personal injury cases involving permanent disability, you may be able to seek compensation for:
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Rehabilitation and pain management
- In-home care and assistance
- Loss of consortium
Enlisting the services of a personal injury lawyer for the permanently disabled is critical to ensuring that you get the compensation that you need and deserve when it comes to maintaining your quality of life and protecting your finances.
Your legal case
Car accidents are the most common cause of personal injury claims in California. Like many other states, California has an “at fault” or “tort” system with respect to insurance claims. In other words, it’s necessary to prove negligence on the part of the defendant for your personal injury claim to be successful.
When someone has suffered a permanent disability as the result of another’s party negligence, he or she has a right to take legal action and file a suit for due compensation. In addition, depending upon the severity of the injury and details of the accident, the victim or plaintiff may also seek punitive damages.
