Any injury that results in a long term/permanent disability / long term medical problems or shortened life expectancy is known as a catastrophic injury.
If we can prove that your serious injuries have arisen as a direct result of the negligence of a third party then you will have a claim for compensation.
A seriously injured accident victim, whether brain / head injury, spinal injury, amputation etc, will have suffered a life changing event which will affect them, their partner, children and loved ones. Changes to surroundings and lifestyle are often inevitable and distressing.Aids and adaptions, rehabilitation, specialist financial support, nursing and medical care together with case management are all likely to be required and are areas in which we can assist the seriously injured person.
The changes to lifestyle and the need to alter surroundings or obtain nursing services can be very costly.
In cases where liability is not seriously in dispute we can obtain an interim payment to buy suitable accommodation/adapt accommodation, to purchase aids and equipment and put in place care, rehabilitation packages and nursing packages.
Serious injuries affect adults, teenagers and children alike and can occur anywhere, at anytime. For example at work, as a pedestrian, behind the wheel of a vehicle, on a bike / motorbike, as a result of falls or whilst playing sports.
