Catastrophic Injuries can change a family’s life forever. Nothing can change that unfortunate fact. The best that can be done is to help the injured person get the medical care and services he or she needs to regain as much independence as possible. This process will take time, support and usually a great deal of money.

Calculating a claim for Catastrophic Injury or Wrongful Death
An injury is considered catastrophic if the injured person requires extended medical treatment or suffers a permanent disability. Brain injury and spinal cord injuries are typically the most serious cases. It is especially important that the final settlement agreement cover costs over a lifetime. We call on life care planners and economists to accurately project cost of care throughout our client’s life.
With this information, our personal injury lawyers pursue compensation for loss of earning power, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and loss of services. If, for example, our client’s back injury means he is no longer able to mow the lawn or play ball with his children, those services and activities will be included in the claim.
