Certain types of injuries are delineated as “serious” or “catastrophic” based on the increased prospect of lifelong disability, disfigurement or death. Brain trauma, spinal cord damage, amputation, third degree burns, paralysis, facial bone breaks and internal bleeding are all classified as serious injuries. These injuries, which are often the unfortunate consequence of a truck accident, motorcycle accident or pedestrian accident, have a profound impact on the lives of the victim and his or her family.
By nature, serious injuries necessitate immediate hospitalization; often, they often also require substantial medical attention, including but not limited to multiple surgeries, supervised recovery and extensive rehabilitation. Even with these procedures, serious injury victims generally do not regain the abilities, employment and lifestyle that they once had. When calculating the damages caused by this type of injury, it is critically important that you obtain the legal counsel of a skilled professional.
Our San Diego car accident attorney at Eugene Bruno & Associates has the requisite experience and knowledge to determine the full, lifetime cost of the accident. Given that the astronomical medical costs of a serious injury alone can easily bankrupt a family, even one with comprehensive insurance, the proper estimation of damages must be obtained prior to negotiating a settlement with the insurance company. Inadequate compensation can not only lead to financial ruin, but also to further medical complications and pain if the victim is unable to afford the level of medical care he or she needs.
Attorney Bruno has aggressively advocated for car accident victims for more than 30 years, and our team can fight for you.
