Catastrophic Injury

Chicago Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

A catastrophic injury dramatically alters a lifestyle permanently. Recovery and rehabilitation after a spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury can be one of life’s greatest challenges. Immediate needs, such as emergency treatment, surgery, and weaning from a respirator, are soon overshadowed by long-term needs, such as durable medical equipment and daily personal care for life. In addition, in the aftermath of a catastrophic injury, there is greater risk of developing complications, such as urinary tract infections and strokes.

Thankfully, however, there is great hope for people with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, and other catastrophic injuries, thanks to advanced methods of medical treatment, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and assistive technology.

When Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. represents someone who has suffered a catastrophic injury in a motor vehicle accident, a workplace accident, or any type of accident, we do so with a sense of determination and optimism. We do not want our clients to be constrained by financial limitations. We fight to ensure that our clients have access to innovative therapy and devices — including technologies that researchers project will be available in the near future.

CNN reported that a woman with paraplegia completed the London Marathon on May 8, 2012, by using an innovative walking suit. Furthermore, a standing power chair allows people with paralysis to live a life that more closely resembles the life of a fully able-bodied person.

When such devices offer hope to our clients, our Chicago catastrophic injury attorneys fight to get the compensation needed to pay for them.

After a Catastrophic Injury, Medical Treatment and Time to Heal are Essential for Recovery

After a car accident or workplace accident, the hope is that someone who has suffered a catastrophic injury will recover with proper medical treatment and time to heal. Catastrophic injuries may include:

  • Closed head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Lacerations
  • Burn injuries

An accident victim who is recovering from a catastrophic injury is likely to require aggressive medical treatments, physical therapy, and rehabilitation. The good news in today’s world is that modern medicine has made many strides. Some catastrophic injury sufferers may recover the ability to continue part or all of the lifestyle they enjoyed before the accident. Others may even resume a productive place in the workforce and/or family life. However, recovery costs can overwhelm even people with good health insurance. Because these injuries very often leave a victim disabled indefinitely, medical costs and long-term care expenses can quickly skyrocket. Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. zealously pursue full and fair compensation on behalf of clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries.

A Personal Injury Claim, Lawsuit, or a Workers’ Compensation Claim Can Provide Necessary Resources

If an accident was the result of someone’s negligence, a personal injury claim or lawsuit may tap into the resources needed to help the injured person pay for surgeries, medications, any needed medical equipment, and therapy. If an accident occurred on the job, workers’ compensation benefits may apply. Contact Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. to learn how our personal injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve after a car accident or a workplace accident.

Our Law Firm Can Represent You if Workers’ Compensation Benefits Have Been Cut Off Prematurely after a Catastrophic Injury

Time to heal and readjust to life after a catastrophic injury is as important as medical treatment. If you were injured at work and now the workers’ compensation carrier has cut off your benefits prematurely, our law firm may succeed at getting your benefits reinstated. You may be entitled to retroactive payments for missed benefits that you should have been paid.
