A catastrophic injury is generally defined as one that will require long term medical care or cause a lifelong negative affect on the victim. If someone else was responsible for an incident that inflicted severe harm on you, it is essential to hire the right lawyer. With offices in Boston and Brookline, Feinberg & Alban PC represents clients across Massachusetts and has earned substantial sums for plaintiffs in claims arising from car crashes, falls, construction accidents and other serious incidents.
Our Massachusetts firm handles claims relating to all types of catastrophic injuries, such as:
From start to finish, you can rely on us for comprehensive legal support as we work to achieve a resolution that allows you to move forward successfully.
Catastrophic injuries can occur in a variety of circumstances, including:
Soon after you’ve been hurt, you might hear from a defense lawyer or insurance company trying to persuade you to accept a quick settlement in exchange for surrendering your legal rights. This could be a serious mistake, especially if you face a long course of treatment ahead. Once you call us, you’ll have a strong advocate on your side who provides honest advice on the type of financial recovery you should expect.
Compensatory damages in Massachusetts personal injury cases are divided into special and general damages. Both types of compensation can be substantial in catastrophic injury claims. Special damages include losses that have an identifiable financial cost, such as:
General damages, which address harm not quantifiable by a specific financial charge, are also significant in catastrophic cases. They can include:
Someone who is facing years of treatment, therapy and care might also be facing millions of dollars in healthcare costs. That’s why it is critical to retain an attorney who has a track record of securing seven-figure payments for victims of catastrophic injuries.
You might require years of treatment and rehabilitation after a catastrophic injury, so you should start the legal process as soon as possible in order to get the compensation needed to address the changes in your life. Massachusetts has a three-year statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits, but acting quickly makes it easier to collect the evidence required to build the strongest possible case.
