The Long-Term Consequences Of Catastrophic Injuries And Wrongful Death

A catastrophic injury or sudden loss of life in an accident is tragic for anyone to experience. While the initial consequences of these accidents may seem obvious, there are long-term consequences you may not be aware of. When negotiating for your compensation, you want a figure covering both the short-term and long-term costs, so how can you obtain that?

Here at Stuart Tinley Law Firm LLP, you can meet with our attorneys who serve the Nebraska and Iowa communities around our office in Council Bluffs. Our firm and its predecessor partnerships have been representing clients since 1861. In the generations we have represented the victims of personal injuries, we have learned what is needed to secure sufficient compensation for these accidents.

What Lies Ahead In Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or severe scars or burns come with hefty medical expenses, but that is only the beginning. These major injuries also cause victims to suffer long-term costs such as:

  • Lost income
  • Future surgeries and operations
  • The cost of medical equipment or home modifications
  • Denied opportunities as a result of your injuries
  • Lifelong emotional trauma

For families of loved ones who passed away in a tragic accident, their long-term costs often come from sources like:

  • Loss of financial contributions to retirement plans
  • Loss of additional income for the home
  • Loss of medical insurance or other benefits

No matter what kind of long-term consequences you may experience from your catastrophic injury or wrongful death, we can help you make sure that you are securing compensation that best reflects both the short- and long-term consequences of the accident.
