Catastrophic Injuries

Over half of our nation’s bankruptcies are caused by medical bills. While many of these bankruptcies result from long-term illnesses, many others are a result of catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by a variety of different accident types, including car, truck, or motorcycle crashes, pedestrian or bicycle accidents, slip and fall injuries, burn accidents, gas explosions, construction site accidents, birth injuries, medical malpractice, premise liability accidents and more. The result is a traumatic injury that may include brain damage, paralysis, amputation, a coma or worse.

When the accident that causes these injuries is due to the negligence or recklessness of another person, hiring the right personal injury attorney can be a life-changing decision.

While you and your family are suffering from the disability and trauma associated with a catastrophic injury, medical bills keep piling up. Injuries of this type can be even more financially devastating when the family wage earner is the person injured, or needs to stay home to take care of their injured loved one. When this happens, you can lose your entire family’s earnings at the same time that you need money more than ever. If you are experiencing these types of problems due to a catastrophic injury, it’s time to contact a Minnesota personal injury lawyer.
