Your Well Being Is Our Top Priority
Catastrophic Injury Claims
While all injuries are severe, there are some deemed to be more serious or “Catastrophic” than others. In situations where injuries are truly catastrophic, they are completely life-altering, with consequences that are permanent into the future. Examples of a catastrophic injury include a brain or spinal cord injury, or any injury that makes you dependant on medical care or medical devices for the rest of your life.
The lawyers at Pennekamp Law, P.A. represent victims who have been involved in serious accidents that resulted in catastrophic injuries. While our law firm is able to help clients who have been involved in all types of personal injury cases, we have a vested interest in helping those who have suffered from what is known as catastrophic injuries. These are set apart from more normal injuries by their long-lasting effects in the life of a victim.
Types Of Catastrophic Injuries
An injury might be classified as catastrophic if the victim will never fully recover or if they will always be living with the side effects. For example, someone who has suffered from the loss of limb will never fully recover and will need to learn how to live as an amputee. This is therefore a catastrophic injury and is something that will cause a lifetime of medical bills, potentially lowered earning potential, as well as mental suffering. Other examples of catastrophic injuries include the following:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Loss of vision
- Loss of hearing
- Severe burn injuries
At Pennekamp Law, we serve clients throughout Southeast Florida, including residents of Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe County. With more than five decades of combined experience, our attorneys are able to help clients in a wide range of accidents-including the serious cases of catastrophic injuries we have litigated. If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident that resulted in a catastrophic injury, it is extremely important that you contact us as soon as possible.
At Pennekamp Law, we are committed to representing injured drivers that have been hurt by other motorists on the road or by poor road conditions. Our attorneys help victims gain the justice and restitution they deserve for their injuries and losses. If you are suffering physically or financially due to a catastrophic injury, make sure you contact us today to get the compensation you deserve.
You Deserve Compensation
Many people do not realize that they can recover more than just the physical damages to their car or property. There are additional costs such as health care, therapy, pain, suffering, and other losses that can be paid for by insurance companies when legal action is taken. For example, if you were in a car accident, some of the items you are entitled to receive compensation for include:
- Loss of employment
- Time missed from work
- Interest losses
- Medical bills
- Therapy costs
- Mental suffering
- Emotional suffering
- Physical pain
- Vehicle repair costs
Remember, the main goal of the insurance companies is to offer you the lowest payment possible to minimize their own expenses. Our goal is just the opposite – We fight to get you the most amount of compensation and restitution you deserve to live a painless and financially free life, for the rest of your life, despite your injuries. We are here to help you in the pursuit of your well being and maximum compensation.
Regardless of what caused your catastrophic injury, Pennekamp Law will provide you with the legal representation you need to get adequately compensated. Our experienced and dedicated legal team will be available to provide you with the knowledgeable counsel and compassionate support you need.
