Our staff of injury law professional at Ehline Law Firm PC, appreciates the devastation families all face when they struck with negligently afflicted injuries, including those serious and catastrophic ones that can put a family in the poorhouse.  At the top of the inventory of the serious injuries list, are those cases involving the cessation of life. When a client faces the “eternal rest” of their loved one, they are never ready for the serious consequences of being left alone with all the bills and responsibilities, let alone, the loss of love and companionship.  This is why most American courts have a mechanism of recovery carved out in statute, called the wrongful death claim.

Our Wrongful Death Attorneys in Los Angeles

At the top of the list of devastating and traumatic experiences, losing a buddy in combat, the demise of a wife or husband, a bad divorce, or a stillborn delivery are up there. It is only natural that bereavement and great sadness goes hand in hand with a visit from the grim reaper. If your natural or legally adopted husband, wife, daughter, father, brother, or other immediate family had their life eradicated due to another’s foolish, uncaring action or inaction, a wrongful death lawsuit may arise.

This means you have the green light to sue various defendants for money damages in court. Compensation includes money for the burial and memorial services as the deceased are being ushered off to their eternal resting place. Reimbursable expenses include the costs of the coffin, coroner’s fees, ambulance transport, etc., for which the survivor’s estate would normally be on the hook when the estate is divided up. Those left behind are also entitled to bring various compensatory claims for lost past, present and future income, medical costs, such as breathing machines and life support services, and in some cases, even for the pain and suffering of the victim (See Survivor’s Statute), as well as that of the survivors who perceived the devastating event while it occurred (Learn More.)  The devastating financial and emotional havoc that a bitter end can bring….

Brain injuries are very serious, and they are not just from automobile accidents. Some are genetic, yet many more are human caused. In the news, we have seen the recent rash of NFL lawsuits stemming from impacts and blows and ineffective helmets.  Lesser known causes are those arising from exposure to, and inhalation of deadly chemical vapors in the construction and manufacturing industries.  A bad head injury, damage to the central nervous system, or the grey matter itself, can dramatically upset a person’s ability to ambulate and complete those normal functions associated with healthy living.

This means a survivor of this type of debilitating harm could be totally disabled and require a host of round the clock caretakers and medical equipment for things like respiratory failure, vision impairment, vascular disruption, brain tumors, and other “acquired brain injuries“. When a traumatic or mild traumatic brain injury is thrust upon you due to someone’s negligence, the surviving victims will have many legal and emotional barriers and pitfalls to overcome.

When a main bread winner is taken out, lifestyle can be drastically altered, as well as the long term and short term emotional well being of all who were negatively effected.  At least a million reports of brain injury are made every year in this country. The greatest cause of these are vehicular collisions. But as discussed, they can also arise from sporting injuries, professional malpractice of a hospital or physician, and even from occupational hazards and diseases that can cause damage to brain cells and even neurological illnesses.   Other factors that may cause brain injuries include severe blows and jolts from explosions and violence….

Burn and scald injuries stand in a league all their own in the pain and anguish department. These afflictions will typically require lifelong pain management, physical and emotional therapy.  Even with intricate medical care, and years of therapy and treatment, there is still the issue of who is paying for all of this. Proving a case like this is no walk in the park. The immense financial and emotional pressure that must be absorbed by the entire family often causes divorces, break-ups and even suicides.

Lawsuits need to be handled by lawyers and emotional physical healing needs to be focal point of the survivors. Ehline Law Firm PC  acknowledges that burns can have intensely catastrophic outcomes. When the skin can no longer sweat, and nerves are killed, and skin is melted, victims can lose their ordinary human appearance, and part of their very humanity.  The significant hospital costs accrued by those lucky enough to survive a horror story like this, does not end when the lawsuit is over. Survivors will require lifelong …. Learn More.

Injuries to the spinal column, like the others discussed, likewise dictate unduly burdensome duties on the survivors and their beloved kin. These dictates involve every aspect of one’s life; having to do with money, emotions and care-taking for those who are crippled. Being diagnosed with a spinal cord injury and a bad prognosis for a full recovery and a devastating blow to all concerned.  Annually in the USA, literally thousands of cases of spine injuries are reported by the government.  Others go unreported, but either way, we know there are plenty. In terms of inconvenience and care, these are right up there with the other serious and catastrophic injuries discussed above. Still sadder, a great deal of these Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) could have been prevented if other would have acted with reasonable care….Read More.

Catastrophic and Serious Injuries Lawyers in Los Angeles, CA

As you probably already reasoned, there are different classifications of injuries. A soft tissue case, although serious enough, has a significantly greater chance of healing, than say, a person cursed with a missing digit or dangerous blow to the head.

Achieving the Goal of Adequate Compensation Catastrophic to Serious Injury Claims

When satisfaction is sought for physically injurious events that were no fault of your own, and they are seriously catastrophic, the permanent disabilities, loss of property such as vehicles, the past and future paychecks that are no longer coming in, and long term medical expenses are all things for which you can make a legal claim. Ehline Law Firm PC stands ready to demand and reserve these rights. In some cases, the victim could be partially at fault, yet still be entitled to a partial recovery less his or her degree of personal fault.  This is because California is a pure comparative negligence state.  We are merely a phone call away, so why delay?
