How Our Lawyers Help Victims with Catastrophic Injuries in RIContact for a free consultation
For example, hospitalization following a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can cost over $5,000 per day, and one-year costs may exceed $500,000. For those with a spinal cord injury, first-year costs average $334,000 to over $1 million, while lifetime costs are in the range of $1.5-$4.5 million or more.
Even if a victim has health insurance, medical expenses can quickly turn into serious debt. Many catastrophic injury victims are unable to work for a long time, and some are never able to earn a living again.
Those who are severely injured because of someone else’s wrongful actions shouldn’t have to worry about how to pay for medical care, but that is the outcome in far too many catastrophic injury cases.
Full compensation through a successful personal injury lawsuit is often the only way to provide an injured claimant with needed future care while avoiding financial hardship. Securing maximum money damages in a catastrophic injury case depends on an attorney’s ability to identify all potential sources of compensation after calculating the full extent of the victim’s current and future losses.
In matters of catastrophic injury, there is no substitute for experience. The Marasco and Nesselbush personal injury team has over a century of combined experience in resolving injury cases.

Determining the Full Extent of Your Losses

- Life-care planners – A comprehensive life-care plan details the rehabilitation and long-term needs of individuals who have experienced catastrophic injuries.
- Vocational experts – A vocational expert’s testimony can help establish the injured person’s earning capacity based on employment history, earnings and benefits.
- Economic experts – Economic experts calculate the amount of money that will fully compensate catastrophically injured victims by looking at factors such as healthcare inflation and wage growth.
Finding All Potential Sources of Recovery
To explain how Marasco & Nesselbush seeks out all potential sources of recovery, consider the case of a car accident. The most obvious lawsuit target is the at-fault driver, but a number of other parties may prove to have played a role in the accident.
For example, if the at-fault driver was drunk at the time of the accident, it’s worth looking into whether a bar or restaurant may be liable for serving too much alcohol to the driver. Or, it may be possible that a vehicle defect led to the accident. In such a case, the manufacturer may be liable. If the at-fault driver was on-the-job, his or her employer may be held responsible for the accident.
You may even be able to obtain money from your own car insurance policy. If the at-fault driver had no insurance or not enough, you may be able to make a claim under your own uninsured or underinsured (UM / UIM) coverage.
"I am a motor vehicle versus pedestrian, accident survivor. Although struck in a crosswalk outside my clinic. As a physician, I’ve had to deal and negotiate with insurance companies in the healthcare arena my entire career. Consequently, I felt that legal counseling would be the safest and most prudent way to approach this unfortunate circumstance. Having researched the numerous legal offices on the internet, Marasco and Nesselbush had a very strong and positive presence, and I must sincerely and wholeheartedly agree.
The Firm, and my M&N attorney, represented me in the most professional and experienced manner, and with ethics of the highest standards, during a significantly emotional time in my life. My M&N attorney was knowledgeable and compassionate about my case and situation. He came to my home the very day I contacted his law firm, thoroughly explained every detail clearly and distinctly, and honestly answered all of my questions. He was genuine, personal, reliable, and patient, offering not only professional support and responsible legal counsel, but also friendship and guidance during a difficult time and situation in my life. He and his staff have earned my deepest trust and respect. I wholeheartedly recommend Marasco and Nesselbush."
