Catastrophic Injury Settlemments
Successful litigation in a catastrophic injury case is dependent on the claimant’s ability to show a duty of care was owed and breached by the defendant, resulting in physical injury in what should have otherwise been an avoidable or preventable accident.
In most cases, these injuries are sustained due to the negligence of another individual or business, such as a motor vehicle collision, recalled products, premises liability, workplace accidents, or construction accidents.
