The Money You Need To Move Forward After A Catastrophic Injury

What is the cost when an athlete faces life in a wheelchair following a spinal cord injury? When a professional suffers memory loss as a result of a brain injury? When an infant suffers cerebral palsy as a result of a birth injury? When a young woman suffers disfiguring burns on her face? When a warehouse worker seriously injures his back in a car accident?

If you or a member of your family has suffered a life-altering injury, you know that the cost of a catastrophic injury cannot be calculated in dollars and cents. No amount of money can compensate for a brain injury, spinal cord injury or birth injury. While a financial settlement cannot ever fully compensate you for your losses, a fair verdict or settlement can help you move forward in life without worrying about how you will take care of yourself and your family.

Working to Recover Maximum Compensation for all Damages

When settling a claim, insurance companies often discount a victim's pain and suffering, emotional distress, and the effect the injury has on his or her everyday life. All insurance companies often consider is hard damages such as medical expenses and past and future lost income. At our law firm, we understand your damages go far beyond the financial cost of your medical treatment and inability to work. We will prepare evidence documenting all of your losses - whether physical, financial, or emotional - which provides support for compelling arguments to juries and insurance negotiators. We use photographs of your injuries, day-in-the life videos, and consult with medical experts, life care planners, economists, and accountants to determine the full extent of your losses.
