There is a beautiful scene in the new Peter Rabbit movie where a rooster is super elated to see the sunrise again. He is so taken aback that the sun has risen again that he must yell to start a new day. We may not wake up every morning with such enthusiasm, but we do wake up with the intention of starting our day and continuing the paths we normally take to work, to school, or to an event. We typically start our day by entering our car. We turn the car on and begin our journey. We never expect, no one ever expects, to be hit by another car, truck, or bus. Yet it happens. These accidents aren’t your normal fender benders, but those that are caused when vehicles are moving more than 50 mph. We at Compass Law Group, LLP in Los Angeles understand that sometimes catastrophic accidents don’t always result in death. Sometimes they result in life long injuries, chronic pain, and life with constant need of help. Our firm understands and wants to see the people in our community stable and thriving instead of suffering and wanting.
Catastrophic Accidents aren’t Just Car Accidents
Car accidents are common. We encounter them constantly, so it is easy to think of catastrophes in their relation to automobiles, but this isn’t always the case. Catastrophic injury means “consequences of an injury that permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” This typically means injuries related to the brain, spine, or severe burns. These injuries happen when falling off of roofs, high speed vehicle accidents, sports related injuries, pool diving accidents, or head on motorcycle accidents. Just as the rooster is shocked that the sun has chosen to rise again, accidents can be just as shocking, but not in a good way.
Typically if you have experienced a catastrophic event, you will have to deal with lifelong injuries, long term effects, and certainly constant medical bills. If this catastrophic event is caused by negligence, a defective product, or an intentional act, you can file a personal injury claim. This will help you get just compensation for the catastrophic event you suffered. This is why you need Los Angeles catastrophic accident attorney.
What Do I Do Now?
At Compass Law Group, LLP we have had the benefit of working such diverse client situations. We focus on working one on one with our clients throughout their legal needs and beyond. Our goal is to make you feel supported through this trying time in your life. Litigating a catastrophic accident is different than claiming regular accidents because there is a higher standard of proof. This means that the litigation time is longer and more in depth than a regular case. We are also aware of finite financial resources, therefore, we do consider settlements as well as taking cases to court. As you begin to learn your new lifestyle around your injury, we will try to make this process ass easy as possible.
