Experienced Legal Representation for Catastrophic Injuries and Personal Injuries in Las Vegas, Nevada
Collisions, product liability cases, premises liability cases (slip and falls), and medical malpractice claims can all result in personal injuries, and the trauma of the experience can overwhelm more than the person who is hurt, but their families too.
When these incidents cause catastrophic injuries, the financial impact of the ongoing, long-term medical care and lost wages — combined with the emotional pain and suffering the injured person is subjected to — can be overwhelming and last a lifetime.
At Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith, our catastrophic injury attorneys in Las Vegas, Nevada represent victims who are entitled to compensation that reflects the lasting impact and permanent effects they have suffered from another’s negligence.
Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries in Las Vegas, Nevada
Our Las Vegas personal injury lawyers demand a higher level of compensation for our catastrophic injury clients because their injuries are more severe and require long-term, expensive medical care, and treatment that requires the proper financial settlement or jury verdict they deserve.
Common types of catastrophic injuries can include, but are not limited to:
- Back and neck injuries
- Loss of hearing or vision
- Multiple bone injuries
- Organ damage
- Severe burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
How Do Catastrophic Injuries Differ From Personal Injuries?
Personal injuries are devastating and cause more than physical harm, but emotional and financial stress for the person who is hurt and those dear to them, including friends and family members who may be charged with care. Our clients who suffer from broken bones, muscle and tendon tears, joint damage, severe cuts, and abrasions deserve compensation for their injuries, so they do not have to pay any of their expenses out of pocket.
When a catastrophic injury results from a collision, medical malpractice, product liability, or another form of negligence, the injured person’s quality of life is significantly compromised.
Long-term care and ongoing financial assistance will be required because of the extent of the injuries, and our Las Vegas attorneys fight for each of our clients to ensure they are able to access the care they need.
The financial setbacks that accompany catastrophic injuries can include:
- Inability to return to work and the lost wages that result
- Long-term, specialized medical care
- Ongoing rehabilitation and therapy
- Permanent assistance or supervision
- Prescription drug and medical device purchases
- Special accommodations, including medical equipment, vehicles, and ramps
In contrast, personal injury victims are compensated for their medical care, and while the injuries can be severe, the duration of care is typically shorter than that of a catastrophic injury victim. Personal injury victims can also be compensated for the amount of time they are out of work and the lost wages that resulted from their injuries. Any miscellaneous expenses and care requirements will be included in our legal claim holding the negligent party responsible, so our clients can move forward with less stress and more positivity.
Victims who suffer from catastrophic injuries often require daily living assistance from the time of the incident, through for the foreseeable future. When their family is dependent on their financial, physical, and emotional support, the hardship extends to more than the injured person, and the result is overwhelming.
