Recovering From A Catastrophic Injury
A catastrophic injury changes the victim’s life forever. This doesn’t mean all is lost, but it does mean you can never have everything back the way it was. Because of the magnitude and permanence of your losses, your catastrophic injury case requires skilled management by an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
At Johnson Law PLC, we understand how important your personal injury recovery is to your future, and we fight to secure that future for you. For 35 years, we have served accident victims throughout the Roanoke region of Virginia. Attorney Neal S. Johnson is AV Preeminent peer review-rated by Martindale-Hubbell,* so you can trust his reputation for professionalism and high ethical standards.
Common Accident Scenarios That Lead To Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries result when the body is exposed to extreme trauma, violent torquing or other external conditions that cause severe damage. Common causes include:
- Auto accidents
- Being struck or crushed by an object
- Electric shock
- Suffocation or near-drowning
In our personal injury practice, we have extensive experience assisting clients who’ve suffered catastrophic injuries in car crashes, especially drunk driving accidents, as well those severely injured by defective consumer products and medical malpractice.
Examples Of Injuries Considered Catastrophic
Catastrophic injuries are life-changing not just for the victim but also for the victim’s family as well. Although many people who’ve suffered catastrophic injury can become self-sufficient, many others must rely on care for the rest of their lives. Catastrophic injuries include:
- Amputation or loss of function of a key body part
- Burns over a significant part of the body
- Disfiguring scars
- Loss of eyesight or hearing
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries resulting in partial or complete paralysis
An injury that requires a lifetime of care, deprives the victim of essential life experiences or inflicts a lifetime of pain requires ample compensation. To get the level of compensation your injury deserves, you need capable and experienced legal representation.
A Preeminent Trial Attorney Can Make All The Difference
Victims of catastrophic injury have a great deal at stake in their personal injury litigation. It’s vitally important to secure a settlement or jury award that can cover your future medical expenses and costs of home care, allow you to live comfortably, and provide for your family’s security if you can no longer work. The attorney you choose to litigate your case must be up to the task.
At Johnson Law, we treat our clients with the utmost compassion while aggressively prosecuting their cases to deliver the maximum possible recovery. We have the knowledge and experience to present your case in a compelling manner, and the resources to counter defense attorney tactics. Most importantly, we have the determination to fight for justice.
