Los Angeles Serious Injury Lawyers You Can Rely On
Personal injuries are considered catastrophic injuries when they have an enormous impact on the lives of the individuals who experience them. Such injuries often result in a lifetime of medical treatment and continuous care. The financial and emotional effects can also be devastating. Victims may face years or decades of lost income due to disability. The lives of the victim and his or her family are often changed forever.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, it is essential that you contact an experienced attorney who can assess the extent of your injuries and understands the kind of medical care that is needed. At The Trial Law Offices of Bradley I. Kramer, M.D., Esq., our principal attorney has the additional expertise of being a licensed medical doctor and surgeon. Since your injuries may very well require such things as multiple surgeries, physical and psychological therapy, rehabilitative care, and a number of other medical treatments, it is essential that your attorney is knowledgeable in medical practice and procedure.

Living with a Catastrophic Injury
A catastrophic injury or illness very often causes severe disruption to the central nervous system, which in turn affects other bodily systems, such as the gastrointestinal system, the circulatory system, and the urinary system. The injury may also result in a loss of communication skills, loss of sensation, loss of mobility, loss of cognitive ability, and loss of other essential body functions. The victim of a catastrophic injury usually needs a number of medical treatments or surgery and faces a long and painful period of rehabilitation.
Some victims never recover from their injuries. Victims also face the challenge of healing emotionally and mentally. The trauma of a catastrophic injury may lead to fear, depression, and anger. The victim’s family members also suffer in the aftermath of a catastrophic injury which can last many years, even when they are older and need full time care. They must also endure the emotional strain of providing care and often experience the same fear and uncertainty as the victim. The attorneys at The Trial Law Offices of Bradley I. Kramer, M.D., Esq. will aggressively fight to recover compensation that extends beyond the immediate medical costs.
We can also help you recover damages for treatments and therapy that may last a lifetime, pain and suffering, emotional damages, and compensation for the suffering of your family members.
