Catastrophic Injuries

Mississippi Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Securing Your Future in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas

To some, the term “catastrophic injury” sounds like a misnomer. Aren’t all injuries and accidents catastrophic? If you’re going by the dictionary definition, that may be true, but legally, catastrophic injury means something entirely different.

According to United States Code Title 34 §10284:

’catastrophic injury’ means an injury, the direct and proximate consequences of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.”

This means, in a legal sense, any injury that leaves you unable to work is considered catastrophic.

Under federal law, if you have been affected by a catastrophic injury, you may also be entitled to compensation. MW Law Firm PLLC – Mama Justice can help you get it.

Call us at (662) 262-6264 to discuss your case today.

How Does Filing a Lawsuit Help?

After an accident and serious injury, you may just want to move on with your life and put the entire experience behind you. While we understand this impulse, we also know that injuries like this are accompanied by serious financial consequences, and we don’t think you should have to face those consequences alone.

A successful lawsuit can compensate you for:

  • Your medical bills
  • The costs of rehabilitative care
  • Time off work
  • The income you will miss out on
  • Lost earning potential
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

While money will not change what happened, this valuable compensation can help you access the care and support you need after a catastrophic injury. With a settlement or verdict, you will have access to the best physical therapists, assistive devices, and doctors available. You can also alleviate the financial pressure your injury may place on your family.
