Catastrophic Injury

San Francisco Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Helping Victims of Severe Injuries Fight for Maximum Compensation

Catastrophic injuries aren’t defined by pain or where they took place. They’re defined by how substantially they alter the lives of victims and their families.

While there are many measurable damages, including the expenses and economic losses families incur, catastrophic injuries are most strongly associated with profound emotional suffering, which is less intangible than physical harm or medical bill.

Though it is difficult to put a price on pain and suffering, our attorneys work diligently to discover the true impact catastrophic injuries have on our clients and fight aggressively to obtain the financial recoveries they deserve. What value your claim has is dependent on the individual facts and circumstances involved, but victims are generally entitled to a recovery of the economic and non-economic damages which directly arise from their injuries.

Understanding Economic Damages in Workplace Injuries

  • Past medical expenses
  • Projected future medical needs
  • Lost income and future earnings
  • Rehabilitative/physical therapy
  • Home care or living assistance
  • Assistive medical devices
  • Medications and medical monitoring

Assessing Non-Economic Damages After a Workplace Accident

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Emotional/psychological anguish
  • Lost quality or enjoyment of life
  • Disfigurement and disability
  • Emotional injuries suffered by a victim’s loved ones

Why Hiring a San Francisco Injury Attorney is Crucial

Though seriously injured victims have the right to recover damages by pursuing civil claims, compensation is never guaranteed.

As claimants, victims must meet high standards for proving fault and liability, and be able to effectively navigate and neutralize the many efforts defendants make in their reluctance to pay what victims rightfully deserve. In most cases, they must also combat powerful corporations and insurance companies that leverage their resources to protect their bottom line.

As legal advocates, our attorneys are passionate about helping clients overcome these obstacles, handling complex legal work, investigations, collaboration with experts, and other aspects of their cases while they focus on recovering and repairing their lives.

Our resources, experience, and considerable knowledge in a range of difficult personal injury cases – from car accidents and claims against property owners to medical malpractice and product liability – allow us to level the playing field for our clients, and position them to seek the most compensation possible.
