Depending on the nature of an accident, the injuries that a person suffers can lead to varying lengths of recovery. With certain catastrophic injuries, victims can have their lives irrevocably altered.
Injuries that are more serious in nature than simple bumps and bruises not only involve increased medical bills, but also potential loss of income if a victim is out of work for an extended period—or possibly unable to return to his or her job at all. If another party’s negligence causes an individual to suffer a catastrophic injury, that person is entitled to compensation that covers all of the damages resulting from caring for and managing the injury.

People can suffer severe injuries in any one of a number of kinds of accidents. In many cases, one party’s negligence is usually the cause of the victim’s injuries.
