No matter the severity of your injuries, NST Law can handle your case. In the past, NST lawyers have helped clients with lost limbs, paraplegia, quadriplegia, spinal cord damage, and brain damage recover maximum compensation for medical bills, lost wages, permanent disability, and pain and suffering. Following a car accident, a victim could require immediate medical care in a hospital, including emergency surgeries and x-rays. In addition, a victim’s recovery process could require physical therapy. NST Law can retain experts to document all hospital and medical bills a victim has incurred or will likely incur in the future. Similarly, if a victim must miss work or return to work at less than full strength as a result of the accident, NST Law can retain vocational economists to document lost wages and compute future diminished earning capacity. For a victim who suffers permanent injuries, NST Law can commission a day-in-the-life video that illustrates how that victim’s injuries affect his or her ability to perform routine daily tasks. NST Law also recognizes that victims may suffer emotionally as a result of being involved in a car accident. For these victims, NST Law can consult with psychiatric experts to document any emotional distress suffered. With the help of these reputable experts, NST lawyers can thoroughly develop the damages portion of a client’s claim.
