Do I Need to Hire a Lawyer for my Catastrophic Injury Claim?


If you’ve been involved in an accident that caused you to sustain catastrophic injuries, you may wonder if you should hire a lawyer in order to be reimbursed for your medical bills.

As defined by 42 USCS § 3796b, a catastrophic injury is one that will forever thwart a person from accomplishing profitable work.

While you can attempt to recoup some of your losses on your own through insurance claims, this is difficult for people who are not highly experienced in this area of the law. Catastrophic injury claims can become quite complex and may require more than you are really ready to handle right after a severe accident.

In general, it is in your best interest to attain experienced and relevant representation for your catastrophic injury claim. Your chances of success are far greater with the right attorney on your side.

Rob’s Been in Your Shoes

Attorney Robert “Rob” Kornfeld of Kornfeld Law suffered catastrophic injuries of his own in 1985 when he was just starting out as a fresh, young lawyer. He was involved in a serious car accident that left him with severe knee injuries as well as catastrophic brain trauma.

Similar to what you may be going through after enduring a severe car accident, Rob’s injuries left him feeling hurt, confused, and in shock. He didn’t know where to turn in order to regain some of what he lost.

The one thing that turned it all around for Rob was hiring an attorney. Once everything was said and done, Rob was finally able to feel some sort of closure from the incident.

Of course, nothing can truly make up for lost time and mobility, but Rob got his life back.
