Accidents happen every day when you least expected. These traumatizing events impact victims on an emotional and physical level. These life-changing incidents devastate millions of lives every year in the U.S. What’s worse is that many of these tragedies were completely avoidable. When your accident results from neglect, you shouldn’t be the one in charge of picking up the pieces.
Which Accidents Stem From Neglect?
If your accident stemmed from neglect, you might be eligible for compensation. While some events are obviously the result of negligence, some incidences are less apparent. These suspicious circumstances sometimes warrant further professional investigation.
Some common incidents of neglect that lead to catastrophic injuries include:
- Pedestrian accidents
- Medical mistakes
- Work-related accidents
- Defective medical devices or drugs
- Bridge collapse
- Crane collapse
- Train derailment
- Plane or helicopter crash
- Construction accidents
Expert advice helps determine the state of your case.
How Should I Prepare to Talk to a Lawyer?
It’s vital to talk to a lawyer as soon as you have an accident. They offer expert advice on how to handle an accident to get you the compensation that you need. Experts have the years of experience to help you navigate the complicated world of accident injury law.
While experts guide you through this journey every step of the way, there are some ways to prepare. Keep track of all critical data and documents related to the incident. Acquire copies of any medical or police reports to demonstrate the connection between your injury and the incident.
Be sure to file any information about the incident itself, including the individuals present, companies involved, and any photographic evidence of the scene. Even if you don’t take pictures the moment the incident happens, go back and take photographs of the scene later.
Catastrophic injuries are those which have a long-term effect on the life of the victim. A catastrophic injury is so severe that it usually results in long-term medical conditions, permanent disability, and/or a shortened life expectancy. They are often life-threatening and life-altering injuries which require extensive medical care, rehabilitative treatment, medical equipment, nursing care or personal assistance long after the accident or event has occurred which caused them. These injuries can often lead to inability to work at all in the future, affecting not only the life of the victim but family members as well who must be depended upon for care and support.
