Serious Injury Means Serious Expenses
Catastrophic injuries are unique in that the medical care and treatment
that is required will often continue to incur over years to come. This
makes it more difficult to accurately determine the full scope of medical
expenses that will result from the original incident. Furthermore, catastrophic
injuries can be gateway injuries in that they can cause additional, even
more severe impairments down the line. Thus, if you have suffered such
an injury in an accident, it is essential to have a competent and aggressive
attorney who can fight for every penny that you need and deserve.
Damages that may be unique to catastrophic injuries include:
- Long-term medical care
- Physical therapy
- Walking aids and other equipment
- Behavioral and emotional changes
- Visible disfigurement
- Inability to continue working
- Adjustments to vehicle or living environment
- Changes to everyday functionality
The more severe the injury, the more likely it is that the victim will
be forced to significantly alter the way they live their life. This can
mean anything from learning to function with a permanent disability to
being forced to find a new career path. It is reasonable and understandable
to expect such victims to experience immense emotional distress and even
depression at the sudden, preventable, and dramatic change they have been
forced to endure. At Henningsen Injury Attorneys, P.C. we want to help
you hold responsible parties accountable for the consequences of their actions.

Catastrophic Injuries in the Workplace
Although many catastrophic injuries are caused by
traffic accidents and
medical negligence, workplace accidents are another leading cause of devastating personal
injuries. Some employees are at a higher risk of suffering a catastrophic
injury, depending on their profession. For example, construction workers
are more prone to involvement in accidents at their workplace, which can
involve heavy equipment, power tools, and large beams.
The following occupations often bring a high risk for catastrophic injuries:
- Construction workers
- Sanitation workers
- Offshore or maritime workers
- Electrical power workers
- Law enforcement
If you were involved in an accident at your place of work that was caused
by the negligence or recklessness of an employer or coworker, it is essential
that you reach out to an experienced and compassionate attorney. Most
employers carry workers’ compensation insurance, as a means to ensure
that victims of workplace accidents can receive the support they need.
However, as with most insurance providers, these companies do not have
your best interest at heart and will often attempt to underestimate your
injuries and offer you a settlement that is far less than what you deserve.
