Catastrophic Injuries

Morgantown Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Put an Aggressive & Experienced Legal Team on Your Side

Some injuries are so severe, they are considered “catastrophic” in the eyes of the law. A catastrophic injury is generally one that inhibits the victim’s ability to return to work or obtain any gainful employment whatsoever. More broadly, however, a catastrophic injury is really any injury that greatly affects the victim’s overall quality of life.

At Hayhurst Law, we understand the immense impact catastrophic injuries have, both on victims and their loved ones. With over a decade of legal experience, our catastrophic injury attorney in Morgantown knows how to navigate these types of personal injury claims and seek the full, fair compensation you or your loved one deserves.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

As previously mentioned, any injury that seriously alters the victim’s life can be considered “catastrophic.” Additionally, these injuries can occur as a result of a variety of accidents and situations, including car and truck collisions, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and more.

Some of the most common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Amputation
  • Severe burns, such as those caused by natural gas explosions
  • Broken bones and multiple fractures
  • Head, neck, shoulder, and back injuries
  • Vision loss
  • Hearing loss
  • Internal organ damage

Note that this list is not exhaustive; our firm can assist you if you suffered one of the above-mentioned injuries or another catastrophic injury caused by someone else’s negligent or wrongful actions.

Why You Need a Morgantown Catastrophic Injury Attorney

While all personal injury claims tend to be relatively complex, claims involving catastrophic injuries are particularly complicated. In most cases, victims will need extensive immediate treatment, as well as ongoing medical care. This may even last the duration of the victim’s life. Determining the full cost of a catastrophic injury, therefore, can be difficult.

How is Catastrophic Injury Compensation Determined?

Attorney Eric Hayhurst is highly skilled and experienced in navigating complex catastrophic injury claims. Along with our entire legal team, he works to determine the full extent of your injuries and the impact they have had—and will continue to have—on your life. This may include things like:

  • Physical pain, emotional suffering, and more.

In every case, our firm works to recover the maximum compensation our clients are owed. This results-driven approach has helped us secure millions of dollars for our clients; find out how Hayhurst Law can help you.
