At RSnyder Law Firm, PC, we can guide you through the difficult process of obtaining the rights you are entitled to as someone who works in the state of California.
A catastrophic work injury is one that is severe and leads to long-term, if not permanent, disability and disfigurement. While there is no exact legal definition of catastrophic injury, they often entail a very difficult recovery process, multiple surgeries and possibly a lifetime of medical treatment. Our Orange County attorneys can help you fight for the recovery you deserve.
Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys can answer your questions and help you determine the best course of action for you.
Rightful Recovery For Catastrophic Injuries
A worker who suffered a catastrophic injury may also be unable to return to work, either in their chosen field or any field at all. Catastrophic injury victims are often eligible for benefits through Workers’ Compensation insurance.
Without an attorney to fight for your rights as an injured worker, rightful benefits are often left on the table, and insurance companies never have to pay. Examples of catastrophic injuries suffered in the workplace include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Permanent loss of an arm or other body part
- Loss of memory or brain functions
- Disfigurement and significant scarring
- Major or minor back injuries
- Loss of eyesight
Call Us For Help Working With The Insurance Company
Even though the law protects those seriously injured by someone else’s negligence, insurance companies do not always do what is in the best interests of the victim. The financial needs for families dealing with serious and life-changing injuries are significant. These can include diminished physical capacities, hospital costs, long-term medical care and lost wages.
In every injury case, the injured person is entitled to damages, including compensation for all losses stemming from the injuries and their impact.
