Attorneys Pursuing Maximum Compensation For Catastrophic Injuries

A serious injury may mean that you need surgery, hospitalization and a lengthy recovery. A catastrophic injury will change your way of life for a long time or permanently. The death of a loved one changes a family forever and may lead to a wrongful death claim.

Life-altering injuries include:

  • Amputations
  • Burn injuries resulting in major scarring
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs or head injuries)
  • Spinal cord injuries (SCIs)
  • Explosion-related injuries resulting in the loss of sight or hearing

At Carey & Stewart, our trial lawyers know from experience that a prompt, aggressive and thorough approach is essential in catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. With the help of experts, such as life care planners and occupational experts, they develop winning strategies.

When Your Life Has Changed Drastically

After a catastrophic injury, you may need expensive durable medical equipment in your home, such as a power wheelchair and a hydraulic lift to transfer you from your bed to your wheelchair at least twice a day. In addition, your home may need to be remodeled.

Or, you may need to move to another dwelling altogether. You may need a modified van that can accommodate your power wheelchair. You may need the services of a personal care assistant (PCA) at least once or twice daily.

When An Accident Has Been Fatal

The death of a loved one in a fatal accident also brings challenging consequences to surviving next-of-kin. Besides losing the love and companionship of your spouse, child or parent, you may also lose their income and practical contributions to your family.

If you are eligible, you may bring a wrongful death claim or lawsuit. Our attorneys are ready to pursue this path with you.

Can Money Solve Everything? Of Course Not, But It Can Offer Hope.

No legal remedy can put your life back as it was before the car or truck crash, elevator accident or fall. Nonetheless, monetary resources can provide the building blocks for a rewarding life despite your losses.

With the reality of your challenges in mind, our team is ready to gather the necessary evidence to document a compelling personal injury or wrongful death claim or lawsuit on your behalf. We prepare every case as if for trial. This approach brings about results.
