Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic InjuryThe time immediately following a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming for the survivor and his or her family members. Determining how to move forward is often the biggest challenge. One important early step toward making things right is selecting a qualified personal injury attorney. At The Corson & Johnson Law Firm, we understand the delicate balance of having compassion for the survivor and his or her family while aggressively pursuing compensation from the responsible party.

 

Life-Altering Events

A catastrophic injury is one that results in an extremely serious and long-lasting medical condition, permanent disability or, sometimes, a shortened life expectancy. We have tried cases involving life-altering injuries including:

  • Brain damage
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Multiple traumatic fractures
  • Other severe trauma
  • Internal injuries

 

Catastrophic injuries have a long-term impact on a person’s health and financial future. This puts stress on not only the injured individual, but his or her family as well. Lawsuits may be necessary to obtain financial resources for a lifetime of care and to prevent similar harms from happening to another person. Having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side to help you determine who is at fault and how to get appropriate compensation for current and future losses is critical.

 

Determining Who’s at Fault

Our personal injury attorneys are experienced at uncovering the truth in catastrophic injury cases. We investigate the facts of the case, evaluate medical records and other relevant documentation, employ outside experts as needed, and identify responsible parties in order to determine the full value of each person’s claim. Ultimately, our research and legal expertise helps us try to obtain the maximum amount of financial compensation for the injured individual and his or her family.

 

Achieving Justice

We understand how much is involved in the treatment and recovery process. We strive for settlements or verdicts that will not only cover a survivor’s current needs, but future medical and living expenses, as well as a person’s human losses.
