Catastrophic Injuries After An Accident: What You Should Know

An accident that involves a catastrophic injury is traumatic, particularly if it was caused by the negligence of another person or entity.

Both mentally or physically, your life is interrupted after an accident as you undergo excessive medical, surgical, and rehabilitative procedures. Even if you expect to recover most of your capabilities in time, you may quickly be overwhelmed by bills at a time when you can’t work. You may become increasingly depressed and angry as you try to cope with your situation and the annoying calls from creditors.

Serious accidents may change your life or that of a loved one – or, in the worse case – end it prematurely. In that case, you are not only struggling with grief but may also be feeling the effects of the loss of income and support from a partner, parent, or other loved one.

Ariel Law Group is here for you.

Our Philosophy

At Ariel Law Group, our philosophy is about truly helping people.

We understand that a catastrophic injury from a drunk driver or a fall on a hazardous sidewalk or in a poorly lit parking lot can happen to any of us — to you or a spouse, child, relative, or close friend. What happens in a minute can result in serious injuries and medical expenses, rehabilitation therapy, and pain and suffering that can last a lifetime.

While we do not have the power to undo a tragic event, we can help you get the monetary relief you need to carry on

Losing A Loved One

In certain situations, severe injuries result in death. Whether this happens at once or months or years after the accident, family members must mourn the loss of a loved one. They also often lose the financial security their loved ones provided for the family and risk serious financial distress.

Our team has helped spouses, children, and other relatives file wrongful death lawsuits to recoup expenses for the loved one before their passing and provide ongoing support to the family.
