Forest Hills Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
Representing Victims of Severe, Life-Altering Injuries in Queens & All of New York
Any injury can result in severe pain and ongoing complications. However, some injuries are so severe, they are considered “catastrophic.” While there is no set definition of a catastrophic injury, injuries that are temporarily or permanently disabling and/or prevent the victim from returning to his or her normal, pre-injury life are generally deemed catastrophic.
If you or your loved one suffered a catastrophic injury, you already know the immense impact these injuries have, both on victims and their loved ones. Catastrophic injuries often require immediate emergency medical attention, as well as ongoing, sometimes lifelong treatment. Victims may need in-home care and assistance; they may be unable to work, drive, or even get dressed on their own.
At The Law Firm of Davidoff & Associates, we fight for catastrophically injured victims and their families in Queens and throughout New York. We understand the unique challenges you are facing, and we know how to work to overcome those challenges on your behalf. Our Forest Hills catastrophic injury attorneys have successfully secured millions of dollars for our clients, both in settlements and verdicts.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
We have discussed the nature of catastrophic injuries, but what specific injuries are typically considered catastrophic?
Generally speaking, the following injuries are often considered to be catastrophic in nature:
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of vision
- Shoulder and back injuries
This is not a complete list of catastrophic injuries; any injury that severely or permanently affects the victim’s life could be considered catastrophic.
Catastrophic Injury Victims Have Unique Concerns
In any personal injury claim, victims can seek compensation for their current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, among other damages. The same is true of catastrophic injury victims, but at The Law Firm of Davidoff & Associates, we understand the unique challenges and concerns many catastrophic injury victims have.
Catastrophic injuries will not only have an immense impact on your life right now but will also likely continue to affect your life for months and years to come. The total lifetime cost of these injuries can be immense.
At our firm, we seek full compensation for all of your damages, including but not limited to:
- Emergency medical treatment
- Ambulance/hospital fees
- Ongoing treatment and care
- Rehabilitative therapy (cognitive and/or physical)
- Medical equipment (wheelchairs, prosthetics, etc.)
- Prescription medications
