Catastrophic Injuries

Accidents involving catastrophic injuries are devastating and life-changing. No matter the cause, the injuries that result from these incidents require significant medical intervention and years of surgeries, rehabilitation and therapy for the injured individual. They may need substantial accommodations such as motorized wheelchairs, vehicles with lifts, homes with ramps and elevators and permanent round-the-clock health care assistance.

The lawyers at The Nail Law Firm understand the seriousness of these cases and the importance of recovering compensation for the injured party and their families. These injuries may impose substantial burdens on the family, in addition to the emotional stress of witnessing their loved one suffer. Our attorneys recognize that a settlement or verdict should provide support for the individual for the rest of their lives, replacing the income they would have earned, the value of contributions they made around the home, and covering their current and future medical expenses and other damages.

Catastrophic Injuries Are Life-Changing

The common element of a catastrophic injury is its life-changing aspect. After such an injury, your life and that of your family's will be fundamentally different. You may not be able to work at your prior occupation. In some cases, you may develop new skills and be able to perform different work, but for many, the injuries frequently include loss of cognitive abilities and render many occupations impossible.

Catastrophic injuries may occur in many contexts, but car and truck crashes, medical malpractice or nursing home neglect produce a large percentage of these injuries. Catastrophic injuries include:

  • Amputation
  • Paralyzation
  • Chronic pain
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Severe burns
  • Scarring
  • Blindness

Our firm has experience you and your family need when bringing a case that may involve a multimillion-dollar damage component. We have the resources to build a compelling case, using expert reports and testimony, exhibits, and day-in-the-life videos to demonstrate the significant effects the injuries have had on you and your family's life.
