Serious and Catastrophic Injuries
Our firm is particularly attuned to the considerations in injuries to children, and we are well-equipped to ensure that victims of serious and catastrophic injuries receive the full compensation they will need to cover losses and adapt. While any personal injury is serious to the victim, those who have suffered burns, paralysis, brain trauma, fractures, or spinal injuries, have special needs that can only be addressed by an attorney with experience to fully present more complex injury cases.
We have successfully handled numerous catastrophic injury settlement claims. We are available to handle a range of serious injury cases including:
- Wrongful Death
- Brain Injury
- Burn Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Back & Neck Injury
- Bone & Joint Injuries
Establishing Liability And Damages
Our trial attorneys excel at identifying the responsible parties, including lawsuits against third parties who caused or contributed to accidents or allowed assaults or injuries to happen through their inaction or indifference. Many cases of negligence are more about what wasn’t done, as opposed to what was done. These are cases of negligent omission.
We work closely with clients and medical providers to recover all elements of damages they are entitled to, including compensation for:
- Medical care– Hospital bills, surgery and physical therapy, medications and medical equipment, nursing care, home modifications and other anticipated treatment
- Lost income– Lost wages for time away from work and projected earnings and benefits for injury victims who are unable to return to their jobs. At times, someone is able to return to gainful employment, albeit with limitations that affect future earnings potential
- Disability or disfigurement– Loss of use of bodily functions, loss of limbs, facial scarring and disfiguring injuries
- Pain and suffering– Chronic pain, anxiety, depression and other physical, psychological and emotional effects
- Loss of consortium– Loss of intimate relations with a spouse/partner due to disabling injuries and loss of an injured spouses’ ability to contribute to the tasks of daily living in a household.
These damages can quickly add up, especially when the injuries are extensive or permanent. It is important to be represented by a law firm that is committed to your comprehensive needs and not merely looking for a fast settlement. We are prepared to go to trial to make the liable parties and their insurers pay full damages.
Crafting The Settlement To Reflect Your Situation
Our job is not done when we win money for you. We develop a game plan for how your personal injury proceeds will be received and distributed. A lump sum settlement may be appropriate, but many times we structure the settlement or award to provide a future stream of income, or to cover future medical care or job retraining. For example, if you are forced to retire early because of your personal injury, we help you connect with tax and investment professionals to make sound financial decisions with your settlement.
We will never just send you on your way and say “good luck.” Our firm is committed to assistance from the day you walk in the door through the conclusion of your case.
