Accidents happen all the time - we know this. Often accidents are caused by the carelessness or the wrongdoing of another person. And, on top of dealing with the accident itself, the victim may suffer through physical, emotional, or financial challenges.
These challenges are the reasons that you or your loved one - after suffering injuries due to a serious accident - need to file a personal injury claim and receive reimbursement for your losses and damages.
Kate Franke Law's committed personal injury attorneys can provide you with the legal representation you need to recuperate as best as possible. Our team has the expertise and resources to help your fight for the recompense you deserve.
Serious Vs Catastrophic Injury
The definition is 'personal injury which results in death; dismemberment; significant disfigurement; a fracture; loss of a fetus; permanent loss of use of a body organ, member, function or system; permanent consequential limitation of use of a body organ or member; significant limitation of use of a body function or system; or a medically determined injury or impairment of a non-permanent nature which prevents the injured person from performing substantially all of the material acts which constitute such person's usual and customary daily activities for not less than ninety days during the one hundred eighty days immediately following the occurrence of the injury or impairment'.
A catastrophic injury is one that forever negatively alters a person's life. These will affect a person's physical appearance, mobility, mental capacity, and overall enjoyment of life. Hospitalization and surgery are usually extensive and will require long-term treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery. These include injuries such as amputations, birth injuries, nerve damage, paralysis, severe burns, etc.
Suppose you are a victim of an accident that will endure various expenses caused by the careless action or wrongdoing of the person that caused the accident. In that case, you can seek financial compensation for these expenses. In most cases, the injured party or surviving family will receive a settlement by the legally responsible person or business.
Common personal injury accidents include car and bike collisions, defective products, and accidents such as slip and falls, pedestrian, worksite, and subway.
