The effects of a very serious injury go beyond physical pain. Victims of catastrophic injury in East Los Angeles may be temporarily or permanently disabled, which can wreak havoc on everything in their lives: jobs and marriage, plans for the future, even their independence. It’s no exaggeration to say that this type of loss is emotionally devastating as well as physically painful. And unfortunately, a catastrophic injury is almost always financially devastating as well. Even if you have medical insurance, the cost of surgeries, hospitalization and other costs can quickly skyrocket into the tens of thousands. And of course, victims may not be able to go back to work for months or may not have jobs waiting when they return — if they can work at all.
If you or a loved one was catastrophically injured by another person’s bad decisions or bad behavior, you have a legal right to hold that person responsible for the results. An experienced Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyer can help you make your case and collect the maximum possible financial compensation. That money can’t reverse a catastrophic injury, but it can help victims get the care they need and live with dignity and independence.
