ABOUT OUR NAME
In Greek mythos, Praxidice was venerated as the goddess of exacting justice. Orphic hymns exalt her as the steward of moral order through casting judgment upon those guilty of violating social norms and conventional rules. The daughter of Zeus and Themis, Praxidice is depicted as the embodiment of virtue and one of the three divine personages of Justice.
Suffering a serious injury or the death of a loved one in an accident is a traumatic event. When death or catastrophic injury occurs, the effects can be devastating and long-lasting. It is therefore of vital importance to obtain the best legal advice possible.
CATASTROPHIC INJURIES - AN OVERVIEW
A catastrophic injury or illness usually occurs suddenly and without warning. Injuries that are considered catastrophic, due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who experience them, include the following: brain injury, spinal cord injury, accidental amputation, severe burns, multiple fractures, or other, neurological disorders. A catastrophic injury or illness very often causes severe disruption to the central nervous system, which in turn affects many other systems of the body. In addition to possible loss of movement, sensation, and communicative and cognitive abilities, the injury or illness may impact respiration, circulation, skin, the urinary system, the gastrointestinal system, and other body systems. Management of such an injury is complex and requires the expertise of a team of health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counselors. Clearly, the long-term needs of someone who has experienced this type of injury far surpass those of individuals with less severe injuries. Individuals may recover from some catastrophic injuries if they receive proper, early medical treatment; however, others may experience permanent disability, significant suffering, and reduced life spans.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE?
Determining who may be responsible for catastrophic injuries can be difficult. There typically is one party directly involved at the scene. However, there may be several other less obvious parties whose conduct played a role in causing your injuries. Catastrophic injuries usually cause the victim to suffer extensive monetary damages, so it is important to identify everyone who may be responsible so that complete justice may be done. An attorney experienced in handling catastrophic injury cases knows how to investigate the facts of a case and to learn the identities of every responsible party.
Any party who bears possible liability for your injuries should be investigated. Every case is, of course, different, and the exact identities of the responsible parties will depend on the facts of your particular case.
