San Francisco Catastrophic and Serious Personal Injury Attorney
San Francisco Bay Area Injury Attorney
Catastrophic and serious personal injuries are life-altering. They typically result in permanent disability and many significantly shorten your life expectancy. The lifetime costs of catastrophic injuries are unbelievably high, and most victims and families grossly underestimate the long-term expenses. It is important to seek enough compensation to cover your injuries for the rest of your life, because you will not get the chance to ask for more later. The San Francisco personal injury attorney of Fleming Law can help you and your family get full compensation for your serious injuries.
Catastrophic and Serious Injuries
Examples of catastrophic and serious injuries include:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Organ damage or loss
- Severe burns
- Severe scarring
- Vision loss
- Hearing loss
- Neurological damage
- Terminal or debilitating illness, such as cancer (due to toxic exposure)
Costs and Consequences of Catastrophic and Serious Injuries
Serious injuries typically cost more in the long term than they do for initial treatment, even when the initial treatment costs are astronomical. They are often permanently disabling meaning that they cost you your income and generate expenses for equipment needed to accommodate your disability.
Catastrophic injuries can also mean that you will require frequent or ongoing medical treatment for the rest of your life. Some serious injury victims will need long-term care in a facility such as a nursing home or extensive home health care. With some types of injuries, such as spinal cord injury, secondary conditions ensue and can be fatal.
Of course, many severe and catastrophic injuries cause chronic pain, depression, and a reduced capacity for the enjoyment of life.
