California Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Los Angeles
Catastrophic injuries cause life-altering disabilities that can be temporary or permanent for a victim and their family. These types of injuries can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating as they can take away someone’s independence, destroy their marriage, and ruin their ability to work.
Even with medical insurance, the costs of hospitalization and surgeries can amount to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars and victims may not even be able to go back to work after they have recovered if they are even able to work at all. For example, treatment for a spinal cord injury may cost upwards of $500,000 for the first year after the injury occurs.
