Catastrophic Injuries: Spinal Cord Injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
After a serious accident, a critically injured person and his or her family face many serious short-term and long-term challenges. An injury victim who is paralyzed will need personal care for the rest of his or her life. A family typically requires recovery and accommodation as well. Home remodeling may be required to allow the injured person to be reintegrated into family life:
- Wheelchair ramps installed going in and out of the house
- Doorways widened
- Kitchen counters lowered
- Safety grab bar rails installed in bathrooms
- Other accommodations

Serious Injuries and Financial Considerations
In the event that you receive a lump-sum compensation for your serious personal injury that has left you disabled, how will you ensure that the money lasts a lifetime as it is intended to?
We are prepared to advise you on issues related to payout including structured settlements and consultations with financial experts that we will recommend to you when you receive your settlement or verdict payout.
We are also vigilant to watch out for medical liens, health insurance liens and blanket liens that may cut into your settlement or verdict money. Please let us know at your initial consultation with a Georgia lawyer at Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. if you have received a letter from a health care provider warning you not to "settle or disperse funds; please report to us on the status of the serious injury claim." We can take steps to protect your financial interests by intercepting such attempted takeovers of part of your settlement or verdict.
We will also advise you on other financial matters that need tending to while the accident claim is underway, including negotiating with creditors to prevent damage to your credit score. Contact the law offices of Andersen, Tate & Carr, P.C. to schedule a consultation after a car accident resulting in serious injury or death.
