What’s a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries are serious injuries that permanently change a person’s life. They can stem from car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, and other events.

These injuries can include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Second- and third-degree burns
  • Severe fractures
  • Amputations
  • Blindness
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Catastrophic injuries affect you physically, mentally, and emotionally.

And when you’re impacted by a catastrophic injury caused by someone else’s negligence, a Memphis personal injury lawyer can help you seek monetary compensation from the at-fault party.

There Are Two Ways to Recover Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries

After a severe accident, you’ll need all the financial help you can get.

Luckily, when someone else’s negligence causes you to be injured, Tennessee law allows you to recover compensation for medical bills, property damages, lost wages, and other expenses.

An experienced personal injury attorney can help you get compensated through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.

Personal Injury Claims

Whether you’re injured on the road, at the doctor’s office, or at a convenience store, your first source of recovery is the at-fault party’s insurance coverage. But, if we’ve learned anything in personal injury law, it’s that working with the insurance company is trickier than it should be. 

Adjusters may try to lure you into making a recorded statement about the accident, taking a lowball settlement offer, or worse, accepting fault for your own injuries.

Personal injury attorneys can help you prove that the other party is responsible, calculate how much your damages are worth, and negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf so that you don’t have to.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

There’s always a chance that the insurance company won’t cooperate. If the adjuster wrongfully denies your claim, stops negotiating, or tries to hold you at fault for the accident, filing a personal injury lawsuit may be the only option.

According to Tennessee personal injury law, you only have one year from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit—not accounting for time spent in recovery, investigating, or negotiating a claim. An experienced attorney can keep your case on track by filing it as soon as it becomes apparent that it’s not going to be a fair fight.

In general, filing a lawsuit is the last resort option and may not be the best course of action for every case. But if it becomes necessary, you need personal injury attorneys who know their way around a courtroom.

Why Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

When you’re badly hurt in an accident, you need a professional on your side.

The truth is insurance companies are not interested in helping you get better. They are interested in paying out as little as possible on your personal injury claim while keeping their company out of trouble with regulators. That could mean they’ll watch you make mistakes in your personal injury case and use every trick in the book to avoid paying out what you’re worth. Sometimes they’ll even resort to illegal tactics.

Our personal injury attorneys keep the insurance company on their toes by using our knowledge of the law and insurance system to get you paid.

Here’s how we’ll back your personal injury case:

  • Investigate and assign fault
  • Protect your legal rights
  • Seek out all sources of compensation
  • Calculate the value of your damages
  • Negotiate with the insurance company for payment
  • File suit, if necessary

What’s better is we’ll do it with a smile on our faces and without charging you a dime unless we’re successful. Contact a Memphis personal injury lawyer today for a free consultation.
