A catastrophic injury is life-threatening or life-altering, such as one that causes a permanent disability. In legal terms, a catastrophic injury is sometimes described as any injury that prevents the person from holding gainful employment. At McGinn Montoya Love & Curry, we want to make sure that our 35+ years of legal experience are put to great use, so we intentionally focus on cases involving catastrophic injuries, both in the medical and legal sense.
We can work on catastrophic injury claims that involve:
- Third-degree burns
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Visible disfigurement
Every injury claim has a value or worth that is equivalent to the damages owed to the claimant. The worse the claimant has been injured by the defendant’s mistakes, the higher that value tends to be. With this said, catastrophic injury claims can have significant values that far exceed the average personal injury claim.
When a large amount of compensation is on the line, the defendant and any insurance companies that represent them will be more likely to push back and deny all liability. Get ready for this harsh resistance by teaming up with our Las Cruces catastrophic injury attorneys. We focus entirely on severe injury cases, so we will be ready to handle whatever the opposition uses against your arguments and evidence.
Furthermore, we prepare every case for litigation, even if it seems like a settlement could be possible. This extra preparation ensures that we aren’t caught off guard by the opposition and that the compensation that we demand accurately reflects your losses.
The value of your catastrophic injury claim can be increased by:
- Pain, suffering, and hardship
- Past and future medical bills
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Lost independence
- Lost wages and income-earning ability
- Necessary lifestyle or living situation changes
- Permanent disability complications
- Shortened life expectancy
- Special medical needs
- Years of rehabilitative therapy
Given that we can assume the defense will fight your catastrophic injury claim as much as it can, we will want to find valuable evidence to support your argument. Our lawyers know where to look for different types of evidence that prove how severely you were injured and what caused that injury. The goal is to give the opposition no room to argue otherwise, so they feel compelled to give you a fair settlement sooner than later.
We can look for these types of evidence sources and more:
- Medical records
- Testimonies from medical experts
- Pictures or camera footage
- First responder statements
Our reputation as Las Cruces locals comes in handy when building a case with convincing evidence of liability. Third-party groups tend to be more willing to lend a hand when they recognize the name of the attorney at their door or in their inbox. Let our local reputation enhance your claim today.
