Readers of our blog already know that we don't think anyone should have to deal with paying medical bills and other damages when he or she is injured in an accident caused by someone else. While some of the injuries that might be suffered in an automobile accident might be minor, others can have a lasting impact on the victim's life. The same is true with injuries caused by defective products, including faulty medical devices, and medical malpractice or negligence.
These more serious injuries, such as amputations, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain damage, close head injuries and neck injuries can require considerably more care than something like a simple broken bone. The initial trip to the hospital, follow up doctor visits, therapy appointments, in home care and medication costs can wreck havoc on the victim's finances.
The effects of a catastrophic injury don't stop there. The victim's family is likely also impacted by the injuries. A spouse might not get the attention he or she once did. That spouse or another close family member might have to care for the victim. If the victim has children, especially young children, it might be hard to help a child understand why his or her parent can't do things he or she used to do.
While compensation likely won't be able to take away the horrible effects of catastrophic injuries from an accident, it might help the victims and their family members to live the best life possible despite the injuries. The compensation might make it easier to get the tools, accessories and care necessary to heal after the tragic injury.
