Dealing with Major Accidents with a Catastrophic Personal Injury Lawyer

Catastrophic Injuries Change Lives

Life is often hard and full of challenges. Suffering a catastrophic injury such as a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury can present a victim with a new set of extremely difficult challenges. Catastrophic injuries are defined for the seriousness of their nature and the long-term impact that they have on people’s lives. The challenges that a catastrophic injury introduces not only affect the victim of the injury, but also the victim’s loved ones, friends, co-workers and others.

As you can imagine, a catastrophic injury will have a severe impact on the victim’s physical abilities which will require medical attention and treatment teams. These types of injuries also introduce significant psychological, financial and social obstacles for victims and their loved ones.

A reputable and experienced catastrophic personal injury lawyer will be able to provide professional legal advice about the unique situation, help the victim access the medical and treatment options necessary for recovery and also help the people around the victim understand the extent of the injuries and what to expect going forward. The Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS) is in place to ensure victims have access to the benefits they require. A catastrophic personal injury lawyer will help victims fight for the benefits they need so they can focus on the long road to recovery and make the most of their lives.


Pursuing Catastrophic Personal Injury Claims

Defining a catastrophic injury and acquiring the proper diagnosis of the injury can be a difficult process. In order to acquire the diagnosis of the injury, you may need to see a number of different doctors, specialists and medical treatment teams. This often requires a lot of time to set up appointments and acquire any necessary referrals. An experienced catastrophic personal injury lawyer can help you gain efficient access and referrals to the medical professionals you need to significantly speed up the diagnosis.

There are complex legal forms such as an Application for Determination of Catastrophic Impairment form that must be filled out by a medical professional. These forms can often be intimidating and confusing for doctors and medical professionals as they contain a lot of legal language. A catastrophic personal injury lawyer will ensure the doctors and medical professionals that you see have experience with these forms and are able to fill them out correctly.


Securing the Catastrophic Injury Benefits You Need

Insurance companies often try to drag out the process of having clients qualify for catastrophic benefits because the benefits are extensive and expensive. An experienced catastrophic injury lawyer will have the expertise to ensure your claim is able to progress efficiently while eliminating many of the tactics that insurance companies commonly use to delay the process.
