Fighting for the Seriously Injured
A serious injury can completely change the course of a person’s life. In the blink of an eye, a once healthy and able-bodied person may no longer be able to care for themselves or earn a living. They and their families may suffer beneath the weight of expensive medical bills and costs of long-term care. They may no longer be able to do all of the things they once enjoyed, such as travel, hobbies, or even playing with their children, resulting in a severely diminished quality of life that can lead to depression and other mental consequences.
When other people cause accidents that change another person’s life this profoundly, they should not go unpunished. At BD&J, we work tirelessly to ensure that our most seriously injured clients are fairly compensated by liable parties. With decades of combined experience and more than $1 billion recovered for our clients, you can trust that our firm has the resources, skill, and drive it takes to pursue maximum results.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is an injury of such severity that it prevents the victim from being able to perform gainful employment. In other words, the victim is left unable to work in the same capacity they once did, or at all, and thus can no longer support themselves.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Multiple bone fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries & paralysis
- Internal organ damage
- Severe burn injuries
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of eyesight
Catastrophic injuries can result from a number of different types of accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace accidents, construction accidents, and exposure to toxic chemicals. Defective and dangerous products and instances of medical malpractice, such as a medical error that causes paralysis or a brain injury, are also causes of catastrophic injuries.
Who is Responsible For My Catastrophic Injury?
There may be a singular person at fault, or there may be multiple people who are. You can file suits against everyone responsible in the state of California. It can become complicated quickly if a corporation or other legal entity become involved, but with the help of BD&J, the process can seem simple.
