Dallas Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Compensation for the Costs of a Severe Injury
A 2007 study conducted by researchers at Harvard University found that medical bills are the leading cause of consumer bankruptcy. The study reports that 62 percent of all bankruptcies are filed by people who have become overwhelmed by their medical expenses. While some of these bankruptcies involved people who suffered from major illnesses, many occurred after the person had suffered a catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or burn injury. The costs of a severe injury can be stratospheric, and they will often push the accident victim over the brink into a financial disaster.
As an example of how much a catastrophic injury may cost in the long term, consider the fact that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that a spinal cord injury victim can expect to pay up to $30,000 per year in medical expenses, with a lifetime total as high as $3 million. These figures do not include the amount of money that the person may lose due to being forced out of work due to partial or total disability. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident which was not your fault, you deserve financial compensation for all of these costs, in addition to noneconomic damages for your pain, suffering, emotional distress, disfigurement and loss of enjoyment of life.
