Pleasanton Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Suffering a personal injury is difficult; being in pain, having to undergo medical treatment, and having to stay positive during your recovery while likely being unable to work for an extended period of time can be trying for the injury victim. But when that injury is completely life altering, it is a catastrophic injury. No one and no city is immune to catastrophic injury accidents. Such injuries occur in Pleasanton, just as they do in other cities across Northern California and the rest of the state, and such injuries are devastating on a physical, emotional, and financial level. When a catastrophic injury is caused by the negligence or recklessness of another, it can be almost unbearable.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can result from a wide range of incidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle crashes, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall and other property accidents, and industrial accidents.

The characteristics that define a personal injury as catastrophic typically include intense pain and suffering as well as causing permanent change, whether it is the type of job the person can do, ongoing physical or mental limitations, ongoing medical care and/or rehabilitation, lower quality of life, and/or other severe consequences. Injuries that can create such turmoil include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Spinal cord injury;
  • Loss of limb;
  • Traumatic brain injury;
  • Burn injuries;
  • Loss of hearing or sight;
  • Chronic illness;
  • Crushed bones; and
  • Multiple bone fractures.

Holding At-Fault Parties Accountable

Catastrophic injuries require an inordinate amount of time and money to recover from and, even then, recovery may never be complete. It is not uncommon for insurance companies to provide insufficient compensation for medical bills and other injury-related costs, and without the appropriate financial support, a catastrophic injury victim will not be able to get the care they need and deserve. If your injury is caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, however, the right amount of compensation is attainable through legal action.
