Catastrophic Injury Cases: What to Do If Insurance Isn't Enough

If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury and there is no insurance or not enough to cover your losses, our attorneys can help. Many accident attorneys will not take these cases, but we will. The Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone will fight aggressively for you.

The Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone knows how bills can quickly skyrocket after a catastrophic injury. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a person with a spinal cord injury has an average medical cost to pay that totals between $15,000 and $30,000 each year. Depending upon the severity of the spinal cord injury and the age at the time when the injury happens, the CDC estimates that you could spend anywhere from $500,000 to $3 million on medical care and adaptive devices for spinal cord injuries in a lifetime.

Spinal cord injuries aren't the only very expensive injuries either.  A traumatic brain injury, severe back injuries and a host of other medical problems can require ongoing and costly treatment and, in many cases, can make work impossible. The high costs of severe injuries make it very important for accident victims to take legal action with the help of personal injury lawyers in Boston if someone else is responsible for causing injury. Unfortunately, however, there may be situations where injuries are so costly that the insurance of the person responsible for the injury doesn't cover the full extent of the losses.

What to Do If Insurance Isn't Enough in Catastrophic Injury Cases

Many types of catastrophic injury happen in car accidents or as a result of other situations where someone's negligent or wrongful behavior is the direct cause of harm. The CDC, for example, estimates that motor vehicle accidents cause as many as 46 percent of spinal cord injuries.

If the catastrophic injury happens because of another person's negligence and that individual has insufficient insurance (or assets) to cover losses, the first step is to find other financial sources that can be secured on our behalf.

We won’t give up on you. We will look for all sources of compensation to hold the negligent party accountable.
