What Is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?
Determining whether an injury is catastrophic depends more on the effect of the injury than on the accident itself. For legal purposes, any serious calamity that leaves a victim paralyzed, disfigured, or significantly impaired is a catastrophic injury. In these situations, the pain and suffering extends for a long time after the event and possibly even for the victim’s entire life.
The most common cases our Milwaukee catastrophic injury attorneys handle include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Injuries resulting in partial or total paralysis
- Injuries resulting in the loss of a limb
- Severe burn injuries
- Injuries resulting in disfigurement and significant scarring
If any of these sound familiar, you may be entitled to compensation from whoever is responsible for your accident. Even if you think you may be partially to blame, the law protects victims and it is worth investigating.
Spinal Cord Injury Help in Milwaukee & Beyond
Injury to the spinal cord caused by a car accident, a workplace injury, or a medical procedure often leaves a person in a state of semi-paralysis and may even cause death. The scientific and medical details involved in such a case can be complex, and it is crucial that you have competent, experienced legal representation at your side to fight for you through settlement negotiations or litigation.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
The injury attorneys at our Milwaukee firm have seen many types of spinal injuries and brain injuries during the decades that we’ve litigated spinal injury cases.
The more common causes of spinal injury include:
- Medical malpractice
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Nursing home negligence
- Wrongful death situations
- Construction site injuries
If you or someone you know was hurt in the spinal region, it is crucial to have a dedicated attorney by your side to get you compensation for your mental, emotional, physical, and financial suffering. Our Milwaukee spinal injury attorneys bring in top experts to help you assemble the facts and build a solid case to help alleviate some of your pain from this catastrophic experience.
Experienced Brain Injury Representation
The human brain is the center of all cognitive and neural functions. Without normal brain function, a person may face substantial emotional, physical, and mental challenges throughout life. A brain injury can impact interpersonal relationships and even the ability to maintain basic personal hygiene.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, our team of Milwaukee personal injury lawyers can fully investigate the cause of the injury, fight your legal battle, and hold accountable those who may be liable to pay compensation. Even if you can function properly and show few signs of damage, you may have a strong case against those who caused your injury because of the sensitive and traumatizing nature of brain injuries.
Signs of a Brain Injury
It’s common for someone to have a brain injury and remain unaware of its existence, its nature or its full extent. Our Milwaukee personal injury lawyers have represented injured clients for a number of decades, and this is familiar territory. If you have been involved in an accident or undergone a medical procedure, and you are disoriented or confused, or something just doesn’t feel right, you may be entitled to compensation as a brain injury victim. It is crucial to have dedicated lawyers by your side to research every angle and build a solid legal case to fight for you.
Many victims of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may not recognize the signs. Some of the more common symptoms of a TBI include:
- You routinely display quick, angry outbursts
- You become depressed easily
- Your speech has suddenly become impaired with a stutter or other impediment
- You forget words or thoughts, or have significant “holes” in your memory
- You have lost a motor skill, like snapping
Without proper medical treatment, your symptoms could become permanent. If you or a loved one suffered a brain, spinal, or other catastrophic injury, you deserve a qualified advocate to get you compensation. Our Milwaukee injury lawyers dedicate their careers to helping people recover from such a traumatic experience. We work together to collect all the background data and the specific facts of your accident. We employ highly skilled medical experts to solidify your case. We research your legal issues and fiercely present them to a judge or jury to get you every penny you deserve.
