Olympia Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

A catastrophic injury can upend your life. If you’ve been injured due to no fault of your own, call an Olympia catastrophic injury lawyer for help.

One of our skilled lawyers is pleased to meet with you at no cost and hear what happened to you. At that time, we’ll be able to inform you of your legal rights. It’s possible you can file a personal injury claim and pursue financial compensation.

Ways Catastrophic Injuries Happen in Olympia

Sadly, there are many ways you can be injured because of someone else’s carelessness. At Ladenburg Law, we deal exclusively with personal injury law and helped helped hundreds of clients receive settlements.

Some of the cases we accept include:

This list is not exhaustive. If your injuries are the direct result of someone else’s negligence, please reach out.

When to Involve a Lawyer for your Injury

Catastrophic injuries include burn injuries, loss of a limb, traumatic brain injuries, and other significant injuries that impact your life.

These types of injuries often come with steep medical bills. Perhaps you can relate. Have you required a hospital stay, surgery, medical device, or ongoing therapy? Maybe the doctors are telling you that you won’t be able to return to work anytime soon – or ever. You might be seeing a therapist. If this sounds familiar, reach out to an Olympia personal injury lawyer.

Our lawyers offer free case evaluations and can help determine your legal rights. Pursuing a settlement can provide financial restoration and hold the guilty party for the damage they’ve caused you.

How to Help your Claim

Until we’re able to meet, there are a few things you do to help strengthen your claim.

  1. Take photos. If you’re able, take pictures of your injury and the scene of the accident. Sometimes, evidence can be quickly cleaned up and lost.
  2. Keep a journal. Our memories aren’t as reliable as we’d like to think they are. Thus, keeping a daily log of your symptoms, pain level, and missed activities can help your case.
  3. Use social media sparingly – or not at all. More than ever, we’re seeing insurance companies and attorneys scouring victims’ social media accounts to discredit their claim. Even seemingly innocent posts where you’re smiling or at an outing with family could be twisted and used against you. (For more information on this topic, please see our post on social media usage and your personal injury.)
  4. Avoid making recorded statements. A common tactic is to have that at-fault party’s insurance company contact you and ask to take a recorded statement. This agent may claim to want “your version of the story,” and sound sympathetic. However, nothing  you say will help your claim – and it may hurt it.
  5. Keep your medical appointments. We know the volume of doctor appointments may seem overwhelming but keeping them sets you up to recover faster and provides a basis for your personal injury claim.

Once we meet, we will be able to provide you with additional, targeted advice about steps you can take in your situation.
