Experienced Catastrophic Injury Lawyers Give Your Case the Attention Needed to Get Fair Compensation

Regardless of how your injury was caused, if you are suffering the effects of a catastrophic injury—or any type of serious injury—you need a skilled lawyer by your side to make sure you get the financial compensation you deserve.  That compensation award may vary depending upon the type of injury involved, such as:

  • Loss of limbs.  Catastrophic injuries resulting in loss of limbs generate unique damages that an inexperienced lawyer might overlook.  Phantom pain can haunt you for years if not permanently, requiring extensive emotional counseling. Prosthetics are not only expensive, but also must be replaced every few years—creating an ongoing need for compensation over the years that our lawyers will work with experts to estimate.
  • Traumatic brain injuries.  In severe traumatic brain injury cases, the patient’s physical body may work just fine.  The cognitive and emotional impact can be life-altering—and also difficult to quantify. We work with experts in neuroscience, vocational rehabilitation and even lifetime care planners to fight for fair compensation.
  • Spinal cord injuries.  Even if a spinal cord injury does not result in paralysis, the victim can face life-altering pain.  Sometimes, the pain cannot be eliminated through medical treatment and patients are forced to choose between addictive painkillers and suffering.  We meticulously research to build an argument for compensation that accounts for pain, which can be difficult for someone lacking experience to put into monetary terms.

Most catastrophic injuries happen suddenly.  In the blink of an eye, your life has been transformed—and most victims are not entirely sure what to do when the bills start piling up. When someone else caused your accident, you have the right to financial compensation.

Despite this blanket statement, it is important to be cautious and get experienced legal help.  The insurance company may recognize that they will be required to pay. In these cases, their goal becomes minimizing the amount that they must pay.  Most victims understandably do not fully understand what they are entitled to receive. Our lawyers will fight to get compensation for:

  • Your past medical bills
  • The cost of future medical care
  • Physical therapy and rehab
  • In-home modifications
  • The cost of in-home assistance
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of your future earning potential
  • Lost employment benefits
  • Vocational rehab
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of your loved one’s company
  • Loss of financial support
  • And more

Frequently Asked Questions About Catastrophic Injury Cases

How long do I have to file a catastrophic injury claim?

Generally, two years. Our lawyers will begin preparing your case from the moment you hire us. Remember, it can take time to learn what a fair compensation award means in your case. Taking action by hiring a lawyer quickly can be key to getting the best results.

Are there any limits on the damages I can recover?

 New Jersey does not limit your right to compensatory damages.  Insurance coverage limits can provide a de facto limit on the damages you may receive, which is why it is important to have someone with experience by your side.  Our lawyers can investigate to identify every possible source of compensation to make sure you get the most compensation available in your case.
