AtOPLawourexpertpersonal injury lawyers are here to guide you through the complex decision making that follows a catastrophic injury. In addition to the compensation aspect of your personal injury claim, we will provide clear practical advice in relation to the issues of rehabilitation, aids and equipment, care, health insurance issues, housing and employment.If a catastrophic injury was caused by the negligent or intentional act of another, or by a dangerous or defective product, a personal injury claim will be an important process in determining the injured party's future quality of life, including the quality of the medical care and other support he or she will receive. In view of the huge financial implications a catastrophic injury has, one of the most important aspects of bringing a personal injury claim is the accurate determination of the value of such a claim.
The long-term implications of many catastrophic injuries often do not surface or become apparent until years after the original injury. Individuals injured as children may experience changes in their abilities/disabilities as they grow, requiring surgeries or other medical intervention to accommodate their growth. Similarly, a burn victim might continue to undergo reconstructive surgeries for many years after the original injury. As a claim must usually be brought within 3 years of the injury occurring it is important to seek legal advice as quickly as possible.
