Jacksonville Catastrophic Injury Attorney
Calculating the cost of medical care, therapy and rehabilitation
A catastrophic injury is a legal term for an injury that is so severe that it will probably have permanent repercussions. Many injuries, even fairly serious ones, will heal with time and proper medical treatment, but the effects of a catastrophic injury are likely to persist for many years and possibly for the rest of the victim’s life. If you have sustained a debilitating and long-term injury, it is vital to contact an experienced Jacksonville catastrophic injury attorney from Gillette Law, P.A. before you talk to an insurance agent or sign away your legal rights. Once your case is settled, you cannot sue for additional compensation — even if additional damage related to the original injury is found. A personal injury lawyer can help to approximate the cost of future care, medical needs and rehabilitation to help you reach a fair settlement or achieve an adequate money judgment.
