How a Spindale Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Can Help You

Your Spindale catastrophic injury attorney will keep you up to date on your case as we:
- Investigate the accident and retrieve evidence to establish liability for your injuries
- Coordinate communications with insurance companies, other counsel, and medical professionals involved in your case
- File a lawsuit seeking the money you need and deserve
- Negotiate a fair settlement for your economic and non-economic losses
- Fight for your right to recover compensation at trial, if necessary
Proving Liability for Your Severe Injuries
A successful personal injury lawsuit requires establishing the other party’s liability. To do so, your attorney must prove:
- Duty of care: The defendant was responsible for acting in a reasonable manner to avoid reckless or careless actions.
- Negligence: The defendant was reckless or careless.
- Causation: The defendant’s negligence caused your accident and injuries.
- Damages: You suffered losses because of the defendant’s actions, including economic and non-economic losses.
Your attorney will retrieve evidence that may include police reports, photographs, eyewitness testimony, medical records, expert testimony, and more to prove liability and the extent of your losses. We’ll present your case to the insurance company and in court to establish that you are entitled to recover damages.

Financial Compensation for Losses Related to Your Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries are life-altering. Victims who suffer severe injuries may need long-term medical treatment, assistive devices, physical therapy, and other ongoing care. Many are unable to work or have to take a lower-paying position because of their injuries.
Fortunately, the law permits those injured to recover economic and non-economic damages from the at-fault party and others liable for their accident and injuries.
Examples of Recoverable Damages in a Catastrophic Injury Lawsuit
Our legal team can help you obtain the money you need to cover these expenses. Additionally, we can help you pursue pain and suffering damages. It’s vital to recover fair compensation that accounts for the long-term effects of your injuries, as once you agree to a settlement, you generally cannot reopen the case.
