Analyzing the damages resulting from a catastrophic injury

If a loved one has recently been involved in a serious accident, their injuries may have been catastrophic. This can have a devastating effect not only on their own life but on the lives of all those who love them and depend on them. Those who experience catastrophic injuries have often suffered some form of brain or spinal injury that can severely impact the way that they are able to continue living their lives.

No amount of money will never be able to compensate the victim and their loved ones for the amount of pain and suffering that has been endured. However, making a claim for damages can help pay for expensive medical bills and much needed services that will help improve the quality of life of the injured person. This is why it is important to have the case fully analyzed, enabling the extent of the physical, emotional and financial damages to be quantified. The following are some key things that will be considered when evaluating a case in Michigan.

Will the injured person be able to continue living in their home?

Many people who are catastrophically injured after an accident will need to live in a modified space. While it may be possible to modify their space by making bathrooms suitable for wheelchairs and installing stair lifts, the injured person may need to relocate entirely.

What is the extent of emotional trauma?

It is very common for injured people to suffer some form of trauma after their accident. This can lead to depression, and it should be treated as seriously as any physical injury. Costs for therapy and counseling should be taken into account.

Is long-term care necessary?

The financial costs that result from the injury may continue for decades, and this is why it is important to fight for the correct amount of damages. The need for long-term care should be accurately evaluated, and the lifetime cost should be calculated while accounting for inflation.

If a loved one is suffering due to a serious accident, you should make sure that they get the damages they deserve. By making sure that their case is evaluated in depth, you will have a good chance of being successful.
