What is a catastrophic injury in California?
If you have been injured by recklessness, negligence, or bad intentions of another person, you may be eligible for damages, for which you need the support of a California catastrophic injury attorney. A good lawyer with experience, knowledge and resources, can help you recover damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
Before, however, to obtain financial compensation, a California court must judge whether you have actually suffered a catastrophic injury. In accordance with the Code 42 § 3796b of the United States, an injury is considered catastrophic when it “permanently prevents a person from performing paid work.”
However, catastrophic or serious injuries must also be proven in court when a personal injury lawsuit is filed that includes this category of injury. The victim alone will hardly be able to present the claim and defend himself before third parties responsible for the injuries.
So you will always need the legal help of a lawyer who is responsible for studying the case and, according to the law, find the best legal way for you to get the most fair and reasonable compensation. You have to think not only about the present problems but about the future ones.
The common catastrophic injuries can leave a person crippled for life, this means receiving continuous medical care, in addition to treatments and rehabilitation therapies, permanent assistance and home care. These expenses must be covered by someone and the only way for the victim of catastrophic injuries to maintain himself or herself at least in part is through compensation.
