Wrongful Death & Catastrophic Injury
Our law firm has helped many families deal with the aftermath of a tragic accident by handling wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims on their behalf.
The legal representative or surviving families of a person whose death was caused by the wrongful act, neglect, or default of another person may bring a wrongful death action against the person or parties who caused the death. Compensation may include economic damages, such as medical and burial expenses, as well as noneconomic damages, such as loss of love, support, guidance, or affection.
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal car crash, you are likely in a state of shock and grief, and may find yourself overwhelmed with having to make financial and legal decisions that could permanently affect you and your family. Our attorneys can help you through this difficult time by handling every aspect of a wrongful death action, allowing you and your family to focus on emotional recovery.
Some personal injuries are so serious that they are considered life changing, as they require ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, and adaptation to overcome. Such catastrophic injuries generally include:
Traumatic Brain Injury – Brain damage may occur from a blow to the head, an object hitting the head, or the head striking an object such as dashboard or windshield. TBIs often require surgery to prevent lasting damage to cognitive functions.
Spinal Cord Injury – A blow to the head, neck, or vertebrae could cause a spinal cord injury. The worst spinal cord injury cases may result in partial or complete paralysis.
Amputation Injuries – A serious car accident or motorcycle accident could result in a crushed or mangled limb that requires amputation, or the force of an accident could sever a limb. An amputation is substantially life altering, as victims must relearn basic tasks.
Burn Injuries – Burns may require skin grafts, plastic surgery, and other procedures to repair the injured tissue; however, victims are often left with scars and even disfigurement.
If you or someone you love has sustained a catastrophic injury, you are likely facing mounting medical bills as well as future costs as care continues, potentially over a lifetime. Our attorneys have helped many people hold responsible parties accountable for the damages they have caused, and battled insurance companies to obtain maximum available compensation for our clients. Trust in our experience and legal skill to help you overcome a catastrophic injury.
