Chattanooga Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Catastrophic injuries are described by federal law as those that take away your ability to work. These are challenging claims to prove, as they require a lifetime of healing and recovery as well as projections of lost earnings. Some states expand this definition, especially when it comes to workers’ compensation claims.
Many injuries are severe, but when someone suffers catastrophic harm in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, or Southern Tennessee, lives and finances are at stake and a higher level of legal insight is needed.
Injured victims should turn to Pritchard Injury Firm.
Led by Zach Pritchard, the Chattanooga Injury Lawyers of Pritchard Injury Firm have extensive experience in securing compensation for residents who have sustained catastrophic injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Nerve damage
- Internal organ damage
Causes of Catastrophic Injury
These injuries and many others can certainly prevent someone from working (or working in the prior job or capacity). And they can happen in an instant and due to various circumstances, including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Unsafe or hazardous premises
- Slips and falls
- Acts of violence (intentional torts)
- Trucking collisions
- Construction accidents
Though these situations are preventable, they are unfortunately all too common. For example, slip-and-falls are consistently a top cause of occupational injuries in the U.S. The industries most at risk for slip-and-fall accidents are transportation, warehousing and agriculture, which essentially puts a bullseye on the backs of thousands of hard-working men and women of Chattanooga and Tennessee.
