Has a Catastrophic Injury Changed Your Life?

Shaheen & Gordon, P.A.: Catastrophic Injury Lawyers in Maine

An unexpected injury can be physically, emotionally, and financially disastrous for an individual and their family. Everything can change in the blink of an eye; people who were once healthy and active may no longer be able to work, go to school, care for their children, or perform their day-to-day routines. This situation can be overwhelmingly difficult and frustrating, especially knowing that an accident was caused by someone else’s carelessness and that it never should have happened.

In times like these, you have the right to pursue justice for the wrongs committed against you. The Maine catastrophic injury lawyers at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. are dedicated to helping victims of serious, life-altering injuries obtain the compensation they both need and deserve.

You may be able to obtain financial compensation for some of the following economic and non-economic damages:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Pain and suffering

It is a gross injustice that you should have to suffer the financial repercussions of a wrongful catastrophic injury. You have suffered enough already; allow Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. to fight for the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled to ensure your future care and wellbeing.

Common Types & Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury usually occurs suddenly and often results in major changes to a person’s life. Often, people who sustain catastrophic injuries are not able to return to work. Catastrophic injuries can take many forms, but some of the most common types include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Loss of a limb
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe thermal or chemical burns
  • Blindness

Catastrophic injuries usually occur as a result of a workplace accident, industrial accident, slip-and-fall accident, motor vehicle accident, or even medical malpractice. These injuries can be either partially or fully disabling depending on their complexity. For example, spinal cord damage could result in paralysis. A severe TBI could affect the way a person is able to think, speak, and interact with people. Some of these conditions may require extensive long-term care, which means significant medical bills. Holding the person or entity responsible for your accident accountable for their negligence can help you get the money you need to cover your bills and provide for your family.
