Catastrophic Injury Claims in Bradford County
Under §10284 of United States Code, a catastrophic injury means “any injury, the direct and proximate consequences of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” Put more simply, a catastrophic injury is one that keeps you from working.
In some states and situations, the definition of catastrophic injury is expanded to indicate injuries where it is impossible to live your life the way you did before the accident.
Unfortunately, many catastrophic injury cases involve negligence, which is the legal term for carelessness. If someone else’s carelessness caused your catastrophic injury, the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. can help.
