The Impact of Catastrophic Injuries
When a catastrophic injury is experienced after an unexpected car accident or any unfortunate tragedy, it impacts the lives of not just the victim but all family members, including children. The victim may face continual medical visits or surgeries that result in ceaseless medical bills. Consistent medical treatment can be time-consuming and overwhelming for all concerned, not to mention financially devastating. This is especially the case if you’re the head of your household, or if you’re responsible for caring for young children.
Most if not all victims of catastrophic injuries experience emotional trauma and loss of enjoyment of life as the result of their injuries. Some families find the strain of dealing with constant stress to be too much, which can cause broken marriages or difficulty in relationships. This type of emotional distress plays a significant factor in any personal injury claim, and non-economic damages are something that typically can only be adequately monetized by an experienced personal injury attorney.
If your injuries have impacted your ability to walk, you may need to move or change your home to make it more wheelchair accessible. There are many different scenarios that pan out for injury victims and their family members after a catastrophic injury, and every unique injury case also entails unique damages.
