In every type of personal injury lawsuit, our attorneys strive to get the largest possible settlement or award for our clients. This goal is especially important in catastrophic injury claims for two reasons.
First, catastrophic injuries usually require a lifetime of care. Complicated medical treatments and home health workers are extremely expensive and the requirement for such care and the associated expense is often ongoing.
Family members should not have to care for and support a person injured because of someone else’s negligence. At the same time, family members often do not understand how much money catastrophic injuries can cost over a person’s lifetime. This is where a lawyer can be a great help.
When negotiating a settlement, this must be factored in the settlement amount. If your case goes to a jury, we use expert witnesses to impress upon the jury how great this burden can be.
Second, catastrophic injuries deprive victims a lifetime of earnings. Any award or settlement offer must support the accident victim for a lifetime if work is not an option.
The attorneys at Kilo Flynn use well qualified economists as expert witnesses to calculate the amount of money necessary to compensate our clients for this loss of earning potential. If the case proceeds to trial, these experts are called upon to testify and explain to the jury the amount of money necessary to replace a victim’s loss of earning capacity.
