Austin Car Accident Coma Lawyer
When a car accident leaves a loved one in a coma, you’re likely to feel overwhelmed and uncertain about the future. Days and months in the hospital and an uncertain prognosis can easily take a toll on your life. Add to that the cost of ongoing medical care to put your finances on the brink of disaster.
Facing all of that, you’re going to need some help. If the car accident that left your loved one in a coma was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another person, you may need to retain an Austin attorney to help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
The lawyers at Colley Firm P.C. understand your predicament and know your options. They also know how to get you the compensation you need for your hardships.
Causes of Serious Car Accidents
A car accident serious enough to leave a passenger in a coma isn’t your everyday fender-bender. It takes certain negligent actions by someone involved in the accident to lead to an impact that serious.
If another party was to blame for the accident that caused your loved one’s coma, our firm will represent your interests to get you the compensation you need.
Another party could be held liable for a serious car wreck for the following reasons:
- Drunk driving
- Driver fatigue
- Distracted driving
- Driver error
- Reckless driving
Working with Victims’ Family Members
From a legal perspective, car crashes that cause serious, long-term injuries like a coma can be complicated. The in-depth legal processes involved in obtaining compensation for these injuries require experience and knowledge of these kinds of lawsuits. For example, if your loved one passes away, then the case moves from a personal injury lawsuit to a wrongful death claim.
A lawyer from our firm can handle the complex insurance issues and legal details like Texas statutes of limitations that accompany your car accident coma case. From start to finish, we’ll handle everything while you focus on your family member’s recovery.
Compensation for Coma Victims
Extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation often follow coma-related injuries. Your loved one may even require long-term treatment for brain damage, which can be astronomically expensive.
A qualified attorney can help you quantify current and future medical expenses, as well as all related expenses, to name in your claim.
Damages commonly named in claims for serious car accidents include the following:
- Medical costs, including future procedures, surgeries, devices, and care
- Lost income and potential earnings
- Mental health treatment
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death of a family member
