Are there limits on damages in catastrophic injury cases?

Can I be found to have been partially at fault for my catastrophic injury?

You can, but you still have a claim. It’s all a matter of comparison. It depends on why you were injured, how you were injured, what injuries you have. Even if you were partially at fault for them, you still have a claim. You can still be compensated, you can still hire a lawyer to represent you. It all depends on all the different facts. Please contact us. We can help you navigate through this, and figure out how to get you compensated for what you’ve suffered.


Do I have to give a recorded statement to the insurance company if I suffered a catastrophic injury?

Well it all depends. Usually if you’re suffering a catastrophic injury as a result of an automobile collision, there will be two different auto insurance policies involved, two different companies involved. The first will be the person who caused the injury and harmed you. You do not have to give a recorded statement to them, and you never, ever should. You shouldn’t be talking to them actually. You should contact a lawyer and have them help you navigate all of that. The other insurance company would be your own insurance company, who under certain circumstances will get involved. Sometimes you do have to cooperate with them and do a statement, but again, you need to contact a lawyer and have them help you with that. If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury please contact us because we can help you navigate all of the insurance companies and all of the different coverages available to get compensation.


Do I need an attorney to represent me in a catastrophic injury case?

If you’re suffered a serious or catastrophic injury, it is vital that you speak to an attorney about your rights. Only an experienced lawyer who is used to handling catastrophic injury cases can advise you of all the things that you need to be concerned about as you proceed forward in your personal recovery and your legal recovery.


How can I pay my attorney’s fees in my catastrophic injury case?

Well the good news is that you can easily afford to hire an attorney. The way we get paid is we get a contingent fee, so we don’t get paid until the very end of your case, and when we do get paid, we get paid a percentage of what we’re able to collect for you. Unlike other types of attorneys that you might hire who charge you by the phone call or the email or by the meeting, the clock doesn’t tick with us. Those things don’t cost extra, we represent you throughout the entire case to the very, very end and we only get paid at the end.
