Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that results in serious, permanent effects on the victim. A catastrophic injury often impacts the spine, spinal cord, or brain and usually happens suddenly, without any warning.

These types of injuries can severely devastate a family emotionally and financially. Due to the serious nature of these accidents they often require significant ongoing medical treatment and personal care. In addition, the expense of a lifetime of rehabilitation and medical bills can add serious financial stress on a family. Your health is most important to us and we are dedicated to helping families adjust to the life changes that develop.

Do I need a lawyer?

When it comes to making this decision we ask our clients to keep in mind that defendants frequently have teams of attorneys on staff prepared to find ways to pay out as little as possible on every claim. So why not hire a team of accomplished attorneys who focus on personal injury litigation to level the playing field for you?

What is the first step I should take if I am injured?

Seek the medical attention that you need. The most important thing is taking care of your injury. Forget about the case, medical care trumps everything.

What is negligence?

Negligence is a large factor of a personal injury case. This involves someone who is careless or reckless and causes harm to another person. No one ever asks to be injured, but when one person’s negligence has significantly impacted another person’s life we are here to care about, defend and protect you. Proving negligence in a personal injury case is essential to helping our clients obtain the compensation that they deserve.

Should I accept an offer from the insurance company?

It is common for an insurance company to offer a settlement after an accident occurs. To some, the settlement may seem like a good offer but you need to understand why it is not. These insurance companies make money by offering you the least amount of compensation possible. Your case is most likely worth a lot more than what the insurance company will offer you. It is highly recommended that you never accept an offer from an insurance company without speaking to an attorney first. We can provide you with better care and compensation than any insurance company can offer.
