Knowledgeable counselor makes your recovery a priority

A catastrophic injury can be defined as an injury that “permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful work.” While there are many injuries that could be categorized as catastrophic, injuries such as these are most common:

  • Limb loss — If an accident victim loses a limb as a result of the incident, that loss will affect their lives forever. People lose limbs most often in car and construction accidents.
  • Spinal cord injury — Cervical spine trauma often results from contact sports and vehicle accidents, with consequences as severe as partial or complete paralysis and also chronic pain, loss of bladder control, and respiratory or circulatory problems.
  • Traumatic brain injury — This type of injury, from a fall, car crash, or another event, is caused by a violent blow or jolt to the head. TBI victims may suffer permanent cognitive dysfunction, limited mobility in arms or legs, and abnormal speech and language patterns, and all may have lasting repercussions. If you or someone you love has suffered a TBI due to someone else’s negligence, we can help you recover damages for lost earnings, medical bills, and household expenses.
  • Ruptured organs — When a serious accident leads to a ruptured organ and internal bleeding, the victim’s life may be threatened. We provide strong advocacy for clients who’ve suffered such serious injuries.

If you have experienced any of these injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence and your quality of life has been permanently altered, you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney immediately. We have represented many victims of catastrophic harm and succeeded in obtaining the financial recovery they deserved.

A dedicated firm offering strong advocacy when you’ve suffered serious harm

While some catastrophic injuries are caused by events in which negligence plays no role, others can be tied to careless or reckless acts. Common causes of catastrophic injuries that justify a personal injury claim include automobile accidents, workplace accidents, and construction accidents. Injuries of this nature tend to involve expensive medical costs, which can ruin a victim financially. Due to the overwhelming financial burden that victims incur, one of the most important aspects of catastrophic injury claims is determining the value of the damage award. After going over the details of your case, we can assist you in establishing the best course of action in pursuing full compensation for your catastrophic injury claim.
