No one wants to be injured to any degree. Especially in a preventable way that results from someone else’s careless or intentional behavior. Some injuries are worse than others and are permanent and life altering. We call those catastrophic injuries.
Every year, about 22 million workers in this country are exposed to hazardous noise levels at work, and over 30 million are exposed to chemicals that may be harmful to the ear (ototoxic) and hazardous to hearing.
An estimated 7.3 million people in this country suffer from a visual disability. 108,000 of them are in Nevada. This includes not only those who are completely blind, but also those who cannot engage in activities normally, even with corrective lenses.
Almost 2 million people in the U.S. have lost all or part of a limb. Almost half—45%—of all limb loss is caused by trauma.
Approximately 5.6 million people (1 in 50) live with some form of paralysis. The leading cause of paralysis is a stroke. Spinal cord injuries from trauma come in second (23%).
About 2.8 million people every year have to visit an emergency room, stay in a hospital, or actually die from a traumatic brain injury.
No matter the degree of your injury, if you or a loved one have experienced (and unfortunately continue to experience) the results of a catastrophic or other life altering injury, you need to consult with a catastrophic injury attorney. A qualified and experience catastrophic injury attorney can help pay for the treatment you need and get you compensation for lost income, quality of life, pain, suffering, disfigurement, future medical care, and more.
And because you didn’t ask for this to happen, and have probably never been through something like this before, you may not know where to start. And the idea of visiting with an attorney may seem intimidating.
At H&P Law, we are catastrophic injury attorneys and understand how to get you compensated for your losses. We are often told we don’t seem like other attorneys because of our personable and down-to-earth manner. We make it our goal to help you identify the source of your injury, figure out if it was the product of carelessness or poor judgment (negligence), and then do everything in our power to make it right while you focus on healing.
