Woodland Hills, CA, September 24, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Catastrophic injuries have devastating effects on those injured and on their family members. No amount of preparation can prepare a person for the long-term medical consequences of a catastrophic injury. A catastrophic injury includes injuries to the spinal cord, accidental amputation, severe burns, multiple fractures, or neurological disorders.
“Catastrophic injury victims and their family often become overwhelmed with the medical costs associated with treating their injuries,” said Los Angeles, California attorney Robert A. Brenner, founder of the Catastrophic Injury Law Group, which is comprised of a nationwide group of attorneys dedicated to the representation of catastrophic injury victims. “Costly treatment may include rehabilitation and care from therapists and specialists. Unfortunately, people fail to realize that when someone else is at fault for their injuries, this financial burden is not theirs alone.”
Brenner launched the Catastrophic Resource Center as an online source for victims and their families to learn more about catastrophic injuries and their legal rights. The center offers a medical care guide, a legal guide, a list of rehabilitation centers and support groups, and a forum dedicated to the discussion of catastrophic injuries.
“It is important for people to understand their legal rights,” said Brenner. “Personal injury law provides various remedies that include monetary recovery for someone else’s negligence or workers’ compensation benefits if the injury is work-related. A person suffering from a catastrophic injury may recover an award for past and future medical costs, rehabilitation, lost earnings, and pain and suffering.”
