What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
A catastrophic injury, such as wrongful death, stroke or paralysis obviously has enormous impact on the injured person and their family. The physical disability, emotional trauma, and resulting financial hardship are usually unpredictable and unimaginable.
As a medical doctor and civil trial attorney, Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D. offers our clients a unique perspective in medical-related personal injury claims. For over 24 years, he has used this knowledge to fight for the rights of injured victims throughout Florida and within the Orlando, Florida area. Mr. Barszcz has obtained multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts and recovered more than $100 million dollars for his clients.
In the unfortunate event of a catastrophic injury, victims may be able to recover damages from any liable party to help cover their extensive medical expenses and other related costs. Depending on the details of their claim, folks might be eligible for reimbursement for past and future lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability or disfigurement, as well as legal fees.
Additionally, in cases where negligence caused the catastrophic injury and resulting losses, punitive damages may also be available if they are specified by state. While an award won't take away the pain of such an injury, it can offer some peace of mind as catastrophic injuries often involve long-term personal care or financial security.
At Michael Barszcz, M.D., J.D., we focus on helping you seek the most favorable outcome possible after a catastrophic injury. Let us help you understand your rights and seek the compensation you need to move forward.
