Motor-vehicle collisions can cause all kinds of catastrophic injuries. Depending on their severity, these injuries can have lasting repercussions and may even prevent you from returning to work or earning a living wage.
With the right legal team by your side, though, you may be able to recover compensation for all the losses that result including medical expenses, pain and suffering, scarring or disfigurement, disability, lost wages, and loss of enjoyment of life. At Donaldson & Weston, we have secured settlements to cover all these damages for clients who sustained various catastrophic injuries.
We handle cases involving:
- Brain Injuries: Motor-vehicle collisions are a leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Although people who sustain minor TBIs can make a full recovery, those with more extensive brain damage may have to cope with permanent disabilities.
- Burn Injuries: Fires are fairly uncommon in car wrecks, but when they do occur, they are typically catastrophic. Accident victims can also suffer thermal burns and deep tissue damage from external heat sources, such as hot metal, steam, and scalding fluids, when exiting the wreckage.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) can cause permanent paralysis, making them one of the most devastating outcomes of any kind of accident. The lifetime costs of living with an SCI can easily amount to millions, and this figure does not even include indirect damages such as lost benefits or loss of earning capacity.
- Ruptured Organs: Sometimes the force of impact in a wreck is so great that one or more parties involved ruptures an organ. Suffering internal bleeding or rupturing the kidneys, liver, or spleen can cause life-threatening complications. Those who receive medical intervention quickly can survive such injuries, but they may face serious health issues as a result.
