Serious or Catastrophic Injuries

When you or a family member have suffered a serious permanent injury such as a brain injury, spinal injury, amputation, or wrongful death, it is absolutely imperative that you research the law firm that is going to represent your case and that you hire a Rhode Island personal injury attorney experienced enough to take the most serious cases.  

It is not an exaggeration to say that a catastrophic injury is life changing.  Your future, your family, hopes and ambitions, may have been stolen from you in a single accident.  In these types of big cases, there is honestly no amount of money that can ever repair the damage done.  A fair and just settlement or jury verdict, however, may ease some of the burden on you and your family.  

If you have been seriously and permanently injured in any kind of accident, you are entitled to lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.  You are also entitled to future medical bills and future lost earnings if you are unable to ever work again.  Depending on your family circumstances, a husband or wife, may also have a claim for loss of consortium.  Loss of consortium is essentially payment to the spouse for the impact that the catastrophic accident has had on his or her life.  We fail to remember sometime that if a husband is critically injured in a car accident, that the wife may have to act as a part-time nurse, or obtain a first or second job to help pay the bills if her husband is no longer able to work.

In a catastrophic injury case, the pain and suffering can be quite a lot of money if there is sufficient insurance to cover the damages.  You need to hire an attorney capable of securing large settlements and jury verdicts, and who is able to think outside the box to find additional defendants and insurance policies which can help cover the staggering amount of damages associated with a catastrophic injury case.
