When a person is injured in an accident, whether it be a workplace accident, car crash or slip-and-fall case, the injuries they suffered could impact their entire life. Not only will they have to deal with extensive medical expenses, but sometimes their injuries are so severe that they are permanently unable to work. For example, an amputation, severe burn or soft tissue damage can result in a career-ending injury.
A career-ending injury can be emotionally devastating. Many people identify with their chosen occupation, and when an injury ends their career this can be emotionally difficult. Moreover, career-ending injuries are financially devastating. A person who must leave the workforce will have difficulties making ends meet financially, a situation that is very stressful and very serious.
The professionals at Butler Viadro, LLP, have handled many career-ending injury cases, including industrial accident injuries. They know what questions to ask to determine how the injury has affected their client's life. From there they can assist their client in developing a legal strategy as they move forward with their case against those responsible for their client's injury.
A career-ending injury is something that no worker expects will happen to them. However, each and every day workers in California are involved in accidents that cause serious injuries. When these injuries put an end to their careers, it is important for these individuals to understand their legal options, so they can make informed choices with regards to pursuing compensation. While no amount of money can truly undo the damages suffered in a career-ending injury, it can go a long way to helping a person out financially during a very difficult time.
