Florida Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

All injuries are serious to some degree, but catastrophic injuries in particular require significant medical treatment and often have long-term or even permanent effects on the life of an injured victim.

A catastrophic injury generally occurs suddenly and without any warning, and can be a severe injury to the brain, skull, spine, or spinal cord. It often causes severe disruption to the victim’s central nervous system, which therefore affects the other systems in the body.

Injuries such as traumatic brain injuries (TBI), burn injuries, amputations, multiple bone fractures, and spinal cord injuries are considered catastrophic due to the huge impact they have on the life of the victim, as they often bring a lifetime of pain, and the possibility that you may never again be able to walk, drive, or earn a living.

Catastrophic injuries are life-changing injuries that can result from all types of personal injury accidents. Car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, train derailments, pedestrian accidents, boating accidents, bicycle accidents, train accidents, medical malpractice, construction accident, electrocution, slip and fall accidents, and premises liability are just some of the accident types that can cause catastrophic injuries to occur.

While some catastrophic injury victims can make an excellent recovery due to early and proper medical care, other victims may have to endure with significant pain and suffering, a permanent disability, and perhaps even a reduced lifespan. Management of this form of injury requires a team of experienced health professionals, including physicians, nurses, therapists, counselors, and consultants.

If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury because of the carelessness, misconduct, intentional act, or recklessness of another person or entity, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. It is crucial you contact an experienced lawyer right away. At The Law Offices of Philip DeBerard our catastrophic injury lawyers have been helping inured victims from South Florida and the Treasure Coast for over 40 years.

Determining Liability

It can often be difficult to determine the party or parties responsible for catastrophic injuries. While there is usually one party who is directly involved at the scene of the injury or accident, there may be numerous other parties whose negligent or careless conduct played a role in your injury.

It is important to determine all the individuals or entities that may have possibly played a part in your suffering in order to obtain complete justice. An attorney experienced with handling catastrophic injury cases will know how to thoroughly investigate the facts surrounding your case and determine all liable parties.
