If you have been affected by a catastrophic injury, here are some ways that a personal injury attorney can help ease the burden. We look forward to working with you to help ease the burden that this accident may have caused you.
Defining Catastrophic Accidents
According to US Legal, the definition of catastrophic injury is “consequences of an injury that permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” These events can be anything from head and brain injuries, burns, amputations, serious psychological damage, and any other debilitating accident. These situations usually occur swiftly and without warning. With the help of a personal injury lawyer, you can determine if your situation qualifies as a catastrophic event in legal terms and what options you have to assist you with lost wages and medical bills.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
One of the biggest responsibilities of a personal injury lawyer after a catastrophic event is dealing with insurance companies. You should know from the beginning that insurance adjusters are not working on behalf of your best interests. They are working for the best interests of their company. Adjusters will try to pay as little as possible or completely deny your claim. They are in the business to make money, not give away their money. If you solely depend on your insurance company to act in your best interest, you may be left with a small settlement or pressured into settling early. This can be disastrous to your long-term injury care. A personal injury lawyer will work for you with your best interests in mind to get you the money you need and deserve.

Throughout the process, you might have an accident report or legal case. The legalese and jargon in these cases may confuse you. This confusion may additionally pressure you into settling for less than you deserve.
