Unfortunately, due to the size, weight and speed capabilities of commercial and motor vehicles, collisions often result in catastrophic injuries. Injuries are considered catastrophic when they will have a long-term impact on someone's life. These types of injuries typically require significant medical care and are often permanent in their nature. Catastrophic injuries are taxing financially and emotionally. At Leiker Law, LLC we have dealt with catastrophic injuries and know how to help you navigate you through this troubled time. There are a number of different catastrophic injuries, including:
*Severe head trauma
*Loss of vision
*Spinal Cord injury
*Permanent injuries to the foot, hand, back, neck or shoulder
Catastrophic injuries often result from trucking accidents, motor vehicle collisions and other types of collisions that occur on the road. You need an attorney who will carefully evaluate what compensation is needed to cover the costs associated with catastrophic injuries. These costs include medical bills, lost wages, future earnings, lost enjoyment of life, mental anguish, and pain and suffering.
