Maryland Serious & Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
We fight to win the compensation injured victims need
Injuries are a fact of life. Whether caused by tripping on a shoelace, accidentally touching a hot surface, or playing a sport, at one time or another most of us have needed some type of medical attention after being injured. While no one intends to become injured; sometimes these mishaps simply happen, and some are due to the negligent or reckless actions or inactions of another person.
Recovery from some injuries can be difficult. The resulting pain, suffering and costs can be extensive and create ongoing difficulties, not only for the injured person, but for their families. At the law offices of Karp, Wigodsky, Norwind, Kudel & Gold, P.A., our Maryland serious and catastrophic injury attorneys are dedicated to helping victims who have sustained life-threatening, debilitating, and even permanent injuries due to another’s negligence.
Which injuries are considered catastrophic?
There is no particular threshold at which an injury is legally classified as “catastrophic”; anybody may seek to recover damages for any injury caused by the negligence of another party. Certain serious injuries, however, tend to result in greater damages. For a catastrophic injury attorney, what sets these injuries apart from other injuries isn’t the total cost of the damages, but in the complexity of the claim, not just the medical issues, but the overall impact the injury has on the life of the injured client.
Injuries likely to generate profound and long-lasting damage include:
If not life-threatening, these are life-altering injuries, sometimes resulting in disabilities such as organ damage and loss, blindness, scarring and disfigurement, and paralysis.
If my catastrophic injury was caused by someone else, what can I recover?
A defendant found to have negligently caused a catastrophic injury can be held liable for damages including:
- Past and future health care and medical expenses;
- Pain, suffering, and mental trauma caused by the injury
- Past and future lost income
- Long-term care facilities and personal care assistants
- Physical and psychological therapy
- Provision of handicapped access and transportation, including the cost of retrofitting a residence
Due to the overwhelming nature of their circumstances, many injured people and their families have no idea of how to begin even considering how to assess these costs. It requires an experienced Maryland catastrophic and serious injury attorney to properly calculate the full amount necessary to properly compensate you for your particular injury.
