Our Lawyers Build Strong Cases for Clients With Catastrophic Injuries
When someone suffers catastrophic injuries, it often occurs because of someone else’s negligence. When one person acts carelessly or recklessly, it can cause significant harm to others. This happens in car crashes, boating accidents, premise liability incidents, and other personal injury accidents.
Our lawyers understand how to determine whose negligence caused these injuries and hold them liable. We do not believe the victims’ families should have to pay for their care and treatment. Instead, those responsible for causing it should. Often, the at-fault party has insurance to cover these costs. For example:
- Auto liability coverage pays for car accident claims
- Homeowner’s insurance pays for dog bite claims
- Corporate liability coverage pays for falls in a store or restaurant
We gather evidence to show negligence and liability, documenting that the at-fault party caused the incident and injuries. We use this evidence as support when we demand compensation for our clients. This usually leads to negotiations with the insurer and often an appropriate payout based on your expenses and losses.

Damages in Catastrophic Injury Cases in Duluth
When a catastrophic injury occurs in Duluth, treatment and stabilization are the top priorities. Victims often go directly to Northside Hospital Gwinnett, a Level II trauma center. Some injuries require an air medevac to Grady Memorial in Atlanta or another Level I trauma center. This is common with serious burns, for example. Catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic amputations
- Severe burns, scarring, and disfigurement
- Other life-altering injuries
The costs of stabilizing, treating, rehabilitating, and living with catastrophic injuries add up quickly and often continue for years. Many catastrophic injuries are life-long and life-altering. When we pursue compensation for our clients, we identify the family’s related expenses and losses and estimate their future care costs with help from experts. The recoverable damages in these cases could include:
- Ambulance or medevac transportation from the accident scene
- Medical treatment, including hospitalization, treatment, and follow-up care
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Necessary ongoing care
- Future medical expenses
- Loss of income
- Reduced earning capacity due to lasting injuries
- Property damages, if applicable
- Miscellaneous related expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Other intangible losses
- Wrongful death damages if the victim passes away

Our Attorney Manages Duluth Catastrophic Injury Cases
At Kaine Law, our attorneys handle all aspects of Duluth personal injury cases. We build robust support for insurance claims and work to negotiate a fair and just settlement. When this is impossible, we do not settle for less than our clients need to cover their expenses and get the necessary care. Under O.C.G.A. § 33-6-34, victims have a right to get an appropriate payout.
If we need to sue on behalf of our client, we will not hesitate to do so. This does not mean the case will go to trial. Instead, it often prompts the insurance company to increase its offer, and we can settle for our client outside of court. Alternatively, we could take the case to trial and present a solid argument to the judge and jury to show:
- Whose negligence caused the accident
- How they caused the injuries
- The severity of the injuries
- The client’s damages
We will present a strong argument for our client that shows they deserve a fair and just payout. This could prompt the jury to issue a favorable verdict and order a monetary award in our client’s favor.
Georgia has a two-year deadline for filing personal injury lawsuits under O.C.G.A § 9-3-33. This applies in most cases, although there are exceptions. Missing this deadline could mean you cannot pursue compensation in the case through the court system. This could greatly affect your ability to get a fair payout, so meeting this deadline is essential. As long as we know about your case in time, we ensure you meet all deadlines.
