Catastrophic injuries not only affect the way you live your life forever but also may lead to devastating financial loss. The medical bills to treat a catastrophic injury—many of which require permanent care—may reach into the millions. The injury may prevent you from working and earning a living, making it all the more difficult to meet the rest of your household expenses. Even the long-term care accommodations offered by the government cost in the thousands per month.

Catastrophic Injuries in Markham, Ontario
Preszler Injury Lawyers fights for the rights of clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries in Markham, Ontario. No matter how your injury occurred—in a car accident, a fall, an intentional act of violence, or another way—we may be able to help you go after the responsible party and fight for compensation. If you qualify for damages, we may be able to help you collect what you deserve.
We have helped clients recover compensation for the following types of catastrophic injuries and more:
A head injury may be a difficult injury to recover from. Those who suffer permanent cognitive damage may require round-the-clock care, along with being unable to work and earn a living. Even injuries that do not lead to permanent brain damage may cause severe lasting effects, including headaches, memory loss, depression, and mood swings. All of these symptoms require extensive medical treatment and may lead to high bills. They may also reduce your future earning capacity. We may be able to help you take action against the responsible party or parties.
A spinal injury may lead to paralysis, impaired movement, loss of feeling, muscle weakness, and a host of other consequences, many of them long-lasting or even permanent. With a compromised spine, it may be difficult to work or partake in other activities you once enjoyed. You deserve compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial losses, and Preszler Injury Lawyers may be able to help you fight for what you deserve.
Losing part or all of a limb requires a major adjustment process that changes the way you live. You might require home modifications to get around, such as a ramp or elevator. You may have to take medication to control pain or get fitted for a prosthetic—all treatments that come with high costs.
Our lawyers may be able to help you fight for damages and collect the compensation you deserve for your loss of limb.
Each of your internal organs, such as your heart, liver, and kidneys, plays a vital role in the natural body processes that keep you alive and healthy. Even minor damage to an organ may have major effects on your health. If you suffered organ damage, either in an accident or during surgery, we may be able to help you take action against the responsible party or parties and fight for the compensation you deserve.

How Preszler Injury Lawyers Builds Your Catastrophic Injury Claim
In order to win your claim, our catastrophic injury lawyers serving Markham may seek to prove four things:
Duty of Care
We first may be able to show that the other party owed you a duty of care. If you suffered injuries in a traffic accident, the other driver had an implied duty to you as a fellow motorist by virtue of getting behind the wheel and driving on public roads. If yours was a medical or surgical injury, the doctor and staff owed you a duty of care that was implicit in the doctor-patient relationship.
Breach of Duty
We may be able to next demonstrate that the liable party breached their duty of care to you. A breach of duty occurs when a person or business does not behave as a reasonable person should in a given scenario. We may be able to collect as much evidence as is available to make it clear that this breach occurred.
We use the evidence we gather to show a cause-and-effect relationship between the other party’s breach of duty and your injuries. We may be able to make the connection very clear and strong.
We list the specific damages you incurred because of your injury and give dollar amounts. We may be able to pursue the entire sum.
Be sure to get started soon. Ontario’s Limitations Act determines how long you have to file an injury lawsuit.
