Nevada Serious Accident Attorney
A catastrophic injury is a life-altering event that forever divides life into two segments: before and after the car, truck or motorcycle accident.
Psychologists have identified phases of grief that people often go through in response to serious loss such as the loss of mobility, loss of independence or loss of a lifestyle.
- Shock and denial
- Pain and guilt
- Anger and bargaining
- Depression, reflection and loneliness
- Gradual recovery, reconstruction and adaptation
- Acceptance and hope
Of course, humans are not machines and you need not feel abnormal if the emotional roller coaster you are experiencing after a catastrophic injury does not fit this pattern precisely. You may instead find that you go back and forth in your adjustment to the trauma and changes that you and your family are going through.
In the midst of these emotions, however, there are practical matters you will need to cope with to recover from a catastrophic injury such as a brain injury, a spinal cord injury, the loss of a limb, broken bones or whiplash. These may include:
- Continuing nursing care (including medication) and monitoring by your doctors
- Possible interim treatments such as a tracheotomy, insertion of a feeding tube or ongoing use of an IV for medication
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- Outfitting with medical equipment such as a wheelchair or walker to enable increased mobility
There will, of course, be significant financial losses. If the injured person ran a business, for example, that would be an additional challenge the family must face. The sooner you have an experienced Nevada serious accident lawyer on your side, the greater your chances of recovering all available compensation. Since 2005, we have recovered more than $18 million in verdicts and settlement for injured people in Nevada, California and Utah.
