Huntington Personal Injury Attorneys For Life-Altering And Catastrophic Injuries
Accidents that result in injuries are tragic. They are even more traumatic if the accident happened because of someone else’s negligence. When that accident results in a life-altering and catastrophic injury, they are devastating. If you or someone you love has sustained a serious injury in West Virginia, like a brain injury, burns or a spine injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, our Huntington personal injury attorneys want to help you recover damages for your losses.
Permanent And Debilitating Injuries
A catastrophic injury is any sort of injury that leaves permanent or life-altering damage. Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
- Amputations or the loss of a limb
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Permanent scars or disfigurement
A serious or debilitating injury can happen in any sort of major accident like a car accident, a motorcycle crash or a commercial vehicle collision. But serious and catastrophic injuries can even occur from seemingly minor accidents. For example, a premises liability accident in which a falling object hits someone in exactly the right place to cause major damage or a dog attacks a child causing permanent disfigurement.
Damages In A Catastrophic Injury Case In West Virginia
In any action for negligence, a victim can seek damages to compensate for the economic losses they suffered due to their accident injuries. Economic damages include medical expenses and lost wages. However, in a case to recover damages for catastrophic injuries, an accident victim is more likely to also claim and receive noneconomic damages for emotional pain and suffering.
