Many of the situations discussed elsewhere on this site — premises liability, defective products, vehicle and pedestrian accidents — can result in catastrophic injury, which are those injuries that result in long-term consequences. Victims of catastrophic injury may require medical care for the rest of their lives. Life expectancy may also be shortened as a result of their injuries. These types of cases are complicated because current and future financial needs (which can be overwhelming) are addressed and included in any compensation. Victims of catastrophic injury also suffer such intangibles as pain, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life. I can help ensure that your medical expenses are covered and that you are compensated fully and fairly for your financial losses and the intangibles mentioned above. If you've suffered a catastrophic injury, please call me. I hope you'll give me the opportunity to fight for justice on your behalf.
Losing a loved one is a traumatic experience. If the loved one's death was caused by another's conduct or negligence — whether in a motor vehicle accident, or as a result of a defective product, medical malpractice, or any other reason — surviving family members are entitled to be compensated for the "wrongful death." Obviously, money isn't going to bring your loved one back, but the financial consequences of a family member's death can be devastating and you really do need a lawyer to ensure that you're compensated fairly. Wrongful death damages typically include compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses, future lost wages and benefits, and emotional losses, which, believe it or not, a lawyer can help you put a dollar value on. If you've recently lost a loved one and you believe it was a wrongful death, don't — under any circumstances — sign a settlement agreement before you talk to me.
