Catastrophic Injury Claims in Alabama

Legally speaking, an injury is catastrophic whenever it takes away your ability to work. While the laws surrounding catastrophic injury vary slightly by state, the federal definition of a catastrophic injury is as follows:

an injury, the direct and proximate consequences of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.”

If an injury prevents you from returning to the career you had before your accident and was caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation via a catastrophic injury lawsuit.

Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney?

Just as each accident brings with it unique challenges as you adjust to life with your injury, each claim has its own complexities and the statute of limitations can vary depending upon the nature of your injury. Victims of catastrophic injuries may benefit from consulting a skilled personal injury attorney who can advise victims of their opportunities for financial recovery and what important steps should be taken. In the days following your accident there may be documents or evidence that can be helpful in your case.

Types of Damages You Can Recover

Sustaining a catastrophic injury changes your life in many ways and presents several different challenges. Not only do you lose your ability to work, but you may also have endless medical expenses and need around-the-clock care and assistance. A successful catastrophic injury lawsuit can help you and your family cope with these changes and challenges.

You could recover damages for:

  • Your medical bills
  • Missed work
  • Future earnings
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Retaining caretaker(s)
  • Assistive devices
  • Experimental treatments
  • Pain and suffering
  • Changes to your quality of life
  • And more

Although results matter, your personal goals matter to us more. That’s why we take time to get to know you and build your case based on what you want out of the legal process.

Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases

In most lawsuits, there is a statute of limitations determined by the state in which the lawsuit is filed. This statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Alabama is two years, meaning you have two years from the date of your injury to file a personal injury lawsuit. It’s important that you file your lawsuit sooner rather than later so as not to lose important information and evidence that could be helpful during your case. When you contact our lawyers, we begin our investigation of the circumstances of the accident and the sooner you contact us, the sooner we can go to work securing helpful evidence for your case.

All you need to do is call us at (334) 490-6344 or schedule yours online today.
