The Cost of a Los Angeles Catastrophic Injury Attorney

You Could Recover Compensation
After suffering a catastrophic injury, you likely have immense medical bills. However, you shouldn’t have to suffer financially because of someone else’s actions. Our attorneys can fight for you to recover the compensation you deserve for the life-altering injuries you sustained.
Types of Damages You Could Recover
Damages are monetary awards the court orders the liable party to pay to the victim for causing their injuries. Damages you could recover after sustaining a catastrophic injury include:
- Current and future medical bills
- Costs for rehabilitation treatments
- The income you lost while recovering from the accident
- The future income you’ll lose if you can’t return to work at all or in the same capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium if your loved one passed away or has such severe injuries they can no longer provide the companionship and support they once could
Our attorneys can review your damages to determine the value of your case. Once we know the value of your case, we can use this figure to negotiate with the insurance companies.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are different from a typical injury claim because these injuries usually result in long-term or lifelong damages to the victim. In addition, these injuries can cost the victim significant amounts of money in medical treatment for the rest of their lives.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
The following types of injuries are considered catastrophic:
- Spinal cord injuries that cause total or partial paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Injuries that require an amputation (or where a limb was severed during the accident)
- Severe burns
- Injuries that cause permanent disability
Regardless of the type of catastrophic injury you sustained, our Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyers can be by your side throughout your case.
Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Recognizing the causes of catastrophic injuries can help victims prove the other party’s negligence caused their injuries. Common causes of catastrophic injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Slips and falls
- Medical malpractice
What Determines Liability in Catastrophic Injury Accidents
To prove liability after a catastrophic injury accident, you must prove that:
- The at-fault party owed you a duty of care
- The at-fault party breached that duty by not providing a standard level of care
- The breach of duty caused you to sustain injuries
- The breach of duty caused you to incur damages as a result of the accident
Our attorneys at KJT Law Group can develop a solid case strategy to prove the at-fault party’s negligence caused your catastrophic injury. We can hold them accountable for altering your life forever.
