About Catastrophic Injuries
There are a number of serious personal injuries that are classed as "catastrophic" as the individual will never again function as they did prior to the accident. These are cases such as traumatic
spinal injuries resulting in paralysis, loss of vision, loss of limb, severe
injuries to children, and disfiguring injuries. If another individual is responsible for the injury, you have the right to file a claim or lawsuit to recover compensation in the case. The recovery of the award is very important in such cases, as the injured will likely require extensive medical care and treatment, and the costs should be paid by the person liable in the case. In some catastrophic injury cases, the liable party is in the medical field, such as in cases of surgical errors or birth injury cases. The Mulvey Law Offices legal team is prepared to evaluate your situation and advise the best course of action in your case.
Aggressive Representation for Victims
Each case has specific circumstances that led to the catastrophic injury. Some have taken place in the workplace; others may be related to a drunk driving or other car accident case. A full review of the details of the case is important when moving forward with a lawsuit. Some cases may be criminal negligence and the possibility of filing for punitive damages is likely in a serious injury case. This allows for extra financial awards to the client who is now facing an altered future through the criminal actions of another individual
