Chicago Catastrophic Accident Attorney

Chicago Catastrophic Accident Attorney

Catastrophic injuries are serious, dangerous and potentially fatal injuries. They can have a life-changing impact on a person and their whole family. Inability to work and other physical and mental limitations can be financially and emotionally debilitating. When another's negligence causes a serious accident, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries.

At Tschiggfrie Legal, our experienced Illinois catastrophic injury attorneys will help you get the compensation you need to pay for yourself and your family when you recover from your catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic Injuries and their Types

A catastrophic injury is described as an injury that causes the victim to suffer serious and permanent damage. Catastrophic injuries can be serious. Not everyone walks away with a minor injury. Others typically sustain serious injuries that lead to rehabilitation and life-long medical bills.

Common types of catastrophic injury cases include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries;

  • Burn Injuries;

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs);

  • Amputations;

  • Internal Organ Damage;

  • Neck Injuries; and

  • Disfigurement.

  • Eye Injuries

  • Accidental Amputation

Only with adequate legal representation will the offending party be held completely liable for the injury caused by their negligence and aggressive pursuit of a just financial settlement be made possible. 

Our personal injury lawyers can take the critical steps to protect the rights of the injured party and also, gather all the facts and evidence to thoroughly present the claim to the responsible party.

Compensation for Illinois Catastrophic Injuries 

Under Illinois law, within two years after the incident, an injured party will file a lawsuit claiming a personal injury. Our catastrophic injury lawyers know that these types of injuries come with their own set of obstacles, financial commitments, and expectations for long-term health care. That's why it's so important to consult with an experienced injury attorney to get assistance as soon as possible in seeking compensation for injuries, losses, and other damages.

When an individual or entity's negligence or recklessness causes an accident resulting in catastrophic harm, a victim may seek monetary damages by filing a lawsuit for personal injury. The amount of compensation would be dependent on the injury extent, current, and future financial obligations/hardships, and expected long-term care costs. This includes the costs of personal hardships such as:

  • Loss of future wages

  • Pain and suffering

  • Ongoing or permanent disability care

  • Medical equipment

  • Childcare

  • Education expenses
