Modesto Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
Representing Severely Injured Workers in the Central Valley
If you suffer a severe work-related injury, you may find yourself facing massive medical bills and temporary or even permanent disability, rendering you unable to return to work for long periods of time. You may be left completely unable to work and earn a living for yourself and your family.
At Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC, we understand how devastating catastrophic injuries are. Whether you were injured on the job or as a result of someone else’s negligence, you should not have to simply suffer the financial consequences of such an injury on your own. Our Modesto catastrophic injury lawyers can help you examine your options for financial recovery, whether that’s through filing for workers’ compensation or bringing a personal injury claim.
Contact us online or call (916) 884-6554 to request a free consultation. There are no fees when you work with us unless we recover compensation for you.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
While any injury can be severe, some are generally always considered to be “catastrophic” due to the serious and lasting effect they have on victims.
Common examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and back injuries
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of vision
- Tissue damage
- Severe illnesses/conditions
Generally speaking, an injury is “catastrophic” if it severely affects the victim’s normal, pre-injury life, including their ability to work and carry out normal everyday activities. For example, a simple broken arm may not be catastrophic, but a comminuted fracture—or bone that has been shattered, splintered, or crushed into more than two pieces due to crushing force—generally is catastrophic. Additionally, a broken knee or similar joint injury may be catastrophic due to the location of the injury.
Seeking Fair Compensation for Your Injuries
Catastrophic injuries tend to have serious, long-term implications for both victims and their loved ones. At Rancaño & Rancaño, APLC, we work to help catastrophic injury victims recover full compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and, in some cases, non-economic damages.
Note that if you were catastrophically injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, these benefits do not cover pain and suffering, emotional distress, or any other non-economic damages. In some cases, it may be better to pursue a third-party work injury claim, particularly if your employer is not liable for the incident that resulted in your injuries.
We encourage you to reach out to our Modesto catastrophic injury attorneys as soon as possible to discuss your legal options with our experienced team. We have been serving injured workers and their families throughout the Central Valley since 1989 and have a proven record of success in complex injury cases.
