Help After a Catastrophic Accident in Miami
There are special considerations in catastrophic accident cases. You need to make sure that you appropriately identify your injuries and value your claims. Our team works thoroughly on your behalf to ensure that you don’t miss any key elements that can prevent you from getting what you and your family need after a catastrophic accident.
The first way that we work on your behalf is by preserving critical evidence from the accident scene. As soon as we represent you, we get to work demanding the preservation of evidence, reaching out to witnesses, and taking steps to gather critical evidence personally. A crucial part of our work is thoroughly documenting the full extent of your medical injuries.
When you’re hurt in a catastrophic accident, you need to know what your injuries are and what your long-term prognosis is likely to be. Our team has experience pouring through medical records and working with medical experts to thoroughly identify and document your injuries. We rely on that evidence to show the other party and the jury how your life has changed because of the accident. Medical evidence can be key to proving your present and future damages.
Recovering after a catastrophic accident is about so much more than recovering for your immediate medical bills. Your injuries may mean that you’re expected to have medical costs that last throughout your life. Extensive injuries can make it impossible to work and provide for loved ones that depend on you. Even things that you used to enjoy before the traumatic events that resulted in your injuries may be impossible now. You may find yourself hiring other people to help you or hiring other people to do things around the house that you used to be able to do without assistance. The feelings of frustration and uncertainty can increase over time after a serious accident.
All of these types of losses are losses that our Miami catastrophic accident attorneys can include in your claim. Missed work, lost future income, replacement services for personal care, and mental anguish can comprise a significant part of a claim for a catastrophic accident. Your medical bills are only one small part of the equation. Many people that we talk to are surprised to learn that they could leave substantial compensation on the table by failing to consider every type of damages available for a catastrophic accident victim. When you work with our team, we work carefully and diligently to pursue every path for recovery that may be to your benefit. With expert eyes which have looked at thousands of cases, you can have the confidence that your case is being handled with skill, experience, and determination.
