Experience Matters

Our Georgia Car Accident Attorneys already know the potential pitfalls to avoid and strengths to take advantage of in car and truck accident claim, and we’re ready to put our Georgia auto accident attorney’s expertise to work for you. The insurance companies want to settle your claim for as little as possible, and will almost always approach you quickly after the accident to sign documents. Never sign any document from an insurance company without the assistance of an attorney. Let the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm get you fair compensation you deserve and the help you need to get your life back on track.

Insurance companies will not compensate you fairly unless they are forced too. Big insurance use a variety of techniques to delay or minimize the payment of settlements and may even try to avoid paying altogether. Representation by an experienced accident attorney is usually the only way an accident victim can get what he or she deserves.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries in Car Accidents

A catastrophic injury is considered to be a physical injury that is extremely serious, has a significant impact on the victim of the injury, and requires considerable medical care. While catastrophic injuries are not always fatal or permanent, they may take many years to heal.

Examples of catastrophic injuries that can occur from car accidents are:

  • Neck and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Limb amputation
  • Severe burns
  • Internal organ damage and bleeding
  • Mental trauma

At best, a catastrophic auto accident can leave the victim with a lifetime of pain, suffering, and physical and mental turmoil. Impacts of a catastrophic injury on the victim’s life include:

  • Loss of gainful employment or business
  • Need for costly surgical intervention
  • Need for prolonged medical rehabilitation
  • Continuous medical care
  • Daily personal care

Obviously, this is not a comprehensive list of negative impacts of a catastrophic automobile accident.

Sustaining a catastrophic injury from a vehicle accident often changes the victim’s life forever and affects their loved ones. In the worst-case scenario, a catastrophic car accident can kill the victim or others involved in the crash.  Whatever the facts and situation, understanding the common types of catastrophic car accidents and consequent injuries is critical to seeking the best care, compensation, and settlement after the incident.
