When tragic events occur, it takes only seconds for injuries to become catastrophic and life-altering. The period of time immediately following a catastrophic injury can be overwhelming for the victim and his or her family members. Determining how to move forward is often the biggest challenge. The first 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 victim and his or her family while aggressively pursuing damages from the responsible party.
A catastrophic injury 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:
- Trauma to the brain or spinal cord
- Doctor/hospital errors
- Accidental amputation
- Severe burns
- Multiple fractures
- Other severe trauma
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 the injury from happening to any other 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 expenses is critical.
Determining Who’s at Fault
Our personal injury attorneys are skilled at uncovering the truth in catastrophic injury cases. We investigate the facts of the case, evaluate medical records and other relevant documentation, and identify responsible parties in order to determine the full value of the claim. Ultimately, our research and legal expertise allows us to obtain the maximum amount of financial compensation for the injured individual and their family.
The attorneys at The Corson & Johnson Law Firm understand what is involved in the treatment and recovery process. We strive for settlements or verdicts that will not only cover a victim’s current needs, but future medical and living expenses as well.
