Serious & Catastrophic Injury

Injuries that will have a negative impact on an individual for the rest of their life are typically known as catastrophic or traumatic injuries. Some long-term injuries include:

  • Scars and disfigurement
  • Persistent or chronic pain
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Blindness
  • Deafness
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries

Many catastrophic injuries can leave a person disabled, forcing them to leave the workforce and needing to apply for disability benefits. Often enough, catastrophic injuries also cause victims to suffer from mood swings, depression or other long-term mental health conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder.

Your Right To Compensation For Your Injuries

If your serious or catastrophic injury was the direct result of someone else's negligence, then you have the right, under Pennsylvania law, to seek compensation from the at-fault party. Whether your injuries were caused by a serious motor vehicle collision, an accident on an unsafe property or a dangerous or defective product, you deserve fair compensation that will cover:

  • Your medical expenses, including your hospital bills, the cost of medical treatments and medication, as well as future physical therapy.
  • Lost wages because of time away from work due to your injuries.
  • Your pain and suffering, which can include loss of quality of life.

We understand you're hurting and know full well the challenges you still have yet to face, which is why we aggressively litigate on your behalf to get you the compensation you need now and in the future.

Seeking Compensation Through Legal Action

Pennsylvania law allows accident victims to seek compensation for their injuries through civil litigation. Victims only have two years after suffering injuries to file a personal injury claim. Afterward, they lose their right to seek compensation from the negligent party.

It's perhaps because of this very reason that you should talk to a lawyer immediately after suffering serious or catastrophic injuries. The attorneys at Vinsko & Associates, P.C., know our state's statute of limitations well and have successfully helped clients throughout Luzerne County file their claims in a timely manner. We work with our clients every step of the way, making sure their rights are protected and they are getting justice for their injuries.
