Huntington Beach Serious Injury Attorneys

A serious injury is a major challenge, and for many people, is overwhelming in its impact on every aspect of life. Most people who suffer a serious accident such as those listed below face major medical expenses and a lengthy recovery. However, most do recover and return to a "normal life" over time.

  • Broken bone(s)
  • Burn injury
  • Dog bite injury
  • Back or neck strain
  • Repetitive stress injury

A catastrophic injury, on the other hand, changes a lifestyle — of the injured person as well as a family — indefinitely. Depending on the person's occupation, it may be impossible to return to work. After a catastrophic injury, the injured person typically lives with disability indefinitely, with a need for ongoing therapy, personal care and accommodations. Catastrophic injuries may include the following:

  • Brain and spinal injury (one or both)
  • Amputation
  • Disfigurement caused by a burn injury or dog attack
  • Debilitating, disabling chronic pain following a broken bone, back injury or neck injury

A person suffering a catastrophic injury will need compensation to cover much more than medical bills and lost wage replacement. A catastrophic injury victim will have special needs for a lifetime. Testimony from experts such as occupational therapists, occupational rehabilitation specialists and life care planners is often a key component of a successful injury claim or lawsuit after a brain and spinal injury.
