After a serious accident occurs, a victim can sustain catastrophic injuries, which can cause the individual and the family members of that individual to suffer a lifetime of medical expenses, emotional pain, and various other consequences. If an individual is harmed due to another person’s carelessness, negligence, or recklessness, they may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident.
