Catastrophic Injuries

In Florida, around 125,000 residents are injured to the point where they need hospitalization, according to the Department of Health, many of which qualify as catastrophic injuries. A catastrophic injury is one in which the victim suffers extreme injuries. Examples include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple fractured bones, and permanent scarring or facial disfigurement. Medical expenses for catastrophic injuries are extreme, as is the amount of pain and suffering that the victim goes through. Pain and suffering is usually calculated by multiplying the victim’s total medical expenses by 1.5-5, with 1.5 being less serious injuries and 5 being the most extreme. Catastrophic injuries are generally multiplied by 4 or 5.

Wrongful Death Claims

While we like to believe that our society has, for the most part, cut out fatal accidents with seat belts, air bags, modern medicine, strict enforcement of the laws, and safety regulations that pertain to just about every part of our lives, the truth is that unintentional injury deaths are still the third leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the CDC. Around 175,000 Americans die every year from fatal accidents, which include motor vehicle collisions, falls, defective products, poisoning, and more. The family members of those killed in motor vehicle collisions, slip and falls, and other unintentional fatal injuries have the option of filing a wrongful death claim against the at-fault party for damages.

Our Lake Butler Personal Injury Attorneys are Available to Help Today

After eye-popping medical bills start arriving in the mail, it is no wonder why the two most common questions victims of serious injuries usually ask their lawyers are 1) what is my claim worth? And 2) how long will the lawsuit process take? Unfortunately, receiving fair compensation usually takes many months, or even years. But it is always better to work with an attorney, as opposed to just saying yes to whatever quick, low offer the other party sends your way. Here at Douglas & Douglas, you can be assured that our Lake Butler personal injury attorneys have your best interest at heart. Call us today at 904-201-8226 to schedule a free consultation.
