A serious and permanent injury or impairment is physical or mental damage which will restrict the employment and/or other activities of a person for the rest of his/her life. In a lawsuit to recover damages caused by the negligence or intentional wrongful act of another, a permanent injury can be a major element in an award of general damages.
A serious personal injury can be life-changing. Many victims can no longer work or enjoy favorite activities, and everyday life is one challenge after another.
Injuries could be caused by car or truck accidents, collisions with trains, motorcycle crashes, pedestrians or bicyclists hit by cars, farm machinery accidents, occupational accidents, and slip and falls.
Covering Future Needs
The medical bills alone can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The insurance companies may offer what seems like a lot of money. But that money has to cover many needs for many years to come.
We consult life care planners, physical therapists, doctors and nursing specialists to determine the costs of future medical care: round-the-clock aides, surgery, physical rehabilitation, medications, prosthetics and medical devices.
