If you were in an accident that resulted in minor injury, the fact that you were not more seriously injured is good news. You have a chance to return to your normal lifestyle. Those who have suffered catastrophic injuries do not. They face a lifetime of pain, suffering, disability and diminished quality of life.
At the Honolulu law firm of Cronin, Fried, Sekiya, Kekina & Fairbanks, we handle serious injury cases to assist those who need the most help, such as those who suffer due to:
- Fatal injuries and wrongful deaths of loved ones
- Head and brain trauma
- Back, neck and spine injuries
- Injuries on construction sites
Recovering Your Expenses And Losses
Many of our clients have suffered catastrophic losses from head and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputation and loss of family members who had fatal internal injuries because of serious accidents. Their losses and expenses will extend far beyond treatment of the original trauma. Besides emergency room bills, surgery and initial hospitalization, extraordinary costs lie ahead to cover therapy and rehabilitation.
Continuing Care After The Accident
In addition, there may be new expenses for medical treatment, supplies and medication such as wheelchairs, therapy and rehabilitation. It may be necessary to remodel the family home to make it navigable for a disabled person with mobility challenges. The family may need to buy a special van — which will most likely need to be replaced every seven to 10 years. In addition, lost time from work means lost wages, which translates to tangible losses for households.
Receiving Payment For Pain And Suffering
Extraordinary pain and suffering is an “intangible” but very real aspect of our catastrophic injury clients’ cases. Our attention to the loss of quality of life that our clients have to cope with sets us apart as a personal injury law firm. We have a great deal of experience advocating on behalf of clients and their families when a serious auto, truck or aviation accident means that life will never be the same for the injured.
