Catastrophic Injuries and Personal Injury Law
A catastrophe, according to Dictionary.com, is a sudden, widespread disaster; any misfortune, mishap or failure; fiasco. Injuries are quite often an inevitable result of catastrophe.
Catastrophic injuries can take the form of fatalities, permanent disabilities such as spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, traumatic birth injuries, skull or spinal fractures or any serious injury resulting from any traumatic event.
Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere. What happens is unpredictable and the results are difficult to manage or accept. The one thing that is in your control is how you take charge of the situation. Addressing your legal rights and demanding compensation for your injury is a requirement if you and your loved ones are to stay financially sound.
Right to Recover Under the Law
You are entitled to recover money damages in the event you or your loved one was injured or your loved one died at the hands of another’s negligence. The statute of limitations, which is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit for the wrong, is two years from the date of injury.
Securing proper representation and preparing strong evidence quickly are vital components to your winning at trial. Chad Pinkerton is an experienced catastrophic injury/personal injury attorney armed and ready to take on your challenge and help you take back control.
Money Damages from Catastrophic Injuries
