Injured individuals and their families could turn to a Cobb County catastrophic injury lawyer for help ensuring that they are compensated for medical bills, lost wages, and emotional pain sustained as a result of someone’s negligence. If you have suffered severe trauma as the result of an accident, contact a personal injury lawyer today to schedule a consultation.

Defining a Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries usually occur with no warning and leave the individual with permanent disabilities. These injuries require the victim to have constant supervision and care, may lead to depression and other types of mental illness, and often put a significant strain on their families.

The costs of a catastrophic injury, especially over a lifetime, can be astronomical, further burdening the victim’s family members. In most cases, individuals who suffer a catastrophic injury will never be able to perform any gainful work. Types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Head trauma and brain injury
  • Accidental amputation
  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Back injury
  • Neck injury
  • Severe burns
  • Spinal cord and neurological injury

Injured individuals who suffer a catastrophic injury should discuss their case with a compassionate Cobb County catastrophic injury attorney as soon as possible after their accident. An attorney could file their legal claim and help them recover their damages.

Types of Damages Available to Injured Individuals

Damages are the monetary representation of the suffering, inconveniences, and financial costs the plaintiff incurred due to their injury.

Actual Damages

Actual damages are the amount of damages that can be calculated and are measurable. Lost wages, medical bills, continued medical expenses and rehabilitation or long-term care, and legal expenses are all common actual damages.

General Damages

General damages are awarded to compensate for intangible harms. They include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of bodily functions
  • Scarring or disfigurement
  • Loss of society
  • Loss of consortium
  • Lost future earning capacity

Punitive Damages

Both actual and general damages are intended to compensate an injured individual for their losses. Punitive damages are quite different as their purpose is to punish the defendant for their actions and deter future similar behaviors. According to Georgia Code 51-12-5.1(b), a jury can only award punitive damages in cases where the defendant acted with spite and malice, a fraudulent or evil motive, conscious and deliberate disregard of the interests of others, willfully or wantonly.

An attorney could help an injured victim determine which damages apply in their case and how much they might be worth. By hiring a skilled Catastrophic injury lawyer in Cobb County, plaintiffs could maximize their damage award.

Call a Cobb County Catastrophic Injury Attorney
