Life planning for severe injuries
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, there are many issues that need to be considered when preparing your case. As your lawyer, I will look to determine how the injury will affect you not just in the near future but for the rest of your life. Only then can I work to compensate you for what you have lost.
An amputation, which is the loss of a limb or part of a limb, is a serious and complex injury. In 2000, I represented a man who got his foot caught in a machine at work. During the initial surgery, his foot was amputated behind the toe. However, that was not the full extent of his losses.
In the months and years that followed, my client needed 20 additional surgeries due to infections related to his injury. He ended up losing not only his foot but also his leg through the knee. For my client's ongoing workers' compensation case, we needed to consider what types of prosthetics my client will need to help him walk and function as well as possible. We also needed to consider what types of prosthetics may be available in the future that will be better than what my client has today.
You only have one chance to resolve your personal injury claims for amputation and other catastrophic injuries. Your lawyer needs to include everything that can conceivably happen to you in the future as a result of your injury. Once your case is tried or settled, it's over.
Being in a serious auto accident is another cause of catastrophic injury. We are committed to helping car accident, trucking accident, and motorcycle accident victims recover the just and fair compensation they are entitled to receive under the law in North Carolina.
