Catastrophic injuries affect victims and their families. Some injuries may be so severe that the individual requires constant care and attention. Home renovations, vans, wheelchairs and other special equipment to accommodate their injuries may be necessary. The cost is high for all of these remedies.
A personal injury attorney will help you seek compensation in the form of pecuniary loss, which is out-of-pocket money loss directly related to the injury and death.
Compensation can cover such items as:
Furthermore, when a loved one dies in a fatal accident, the surviving family members suffer significant “noneconomic losses.” Compensation, then, may also be awarded for items such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship, guidance, and support.
The aftermath of a loved one’s death is extremely difficult to go through, especially when it was unexpected and caused by someone else. The family of the deceased faces the stressful situation of trying to get things in order.
