Coping with the aftermath of a catastrophic personal injury

On Behalf of | Oct 14, 2019 | Personal Injury |

As you undoubtedly know, a personal injury can disrupt your life at any moment. Motor vehicle accidents, in particular, cause a great amount of harm to the human body from broken bones to brain damage to catastrophic spinal cord injuries.

Should you shroud yourself in bubble wrap and stay in the safety of your home for eternity? Of course, you don’t want to do that and neither do we, but remaining aware of danger may you avoid a catastrophic injury. For example, if you are driving home in the late evening, be aware of your surroundings, including other motorists. Look for signs of drunk or distracted driving behavior and maintain a safe distance.

A personal injury, especially if it’s catastrophic, usually means a long recovery period. It may also mean living with a disability on a short or long-term basis. Most victims of a catastrophic injury in Florida also suffer from significant financial hardships on top of their physical harm. Examples of these hardships include the following.

  • Ongoing medical and therapeutic treatment costs
  • Expenses associated with a personal nurse or caregiver
  • Costs of making disability modifications to your home
  • Temporary or permanent loss of a regular income to pay bills
