Fort Lauderdale Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Seeking Justice for Accident Victims in South Florida

If someone you love has recently suffered a serious, life-threatening, or catastrophic injury, you could be struggling with the aftermath. Victims of catastrophic injuries are often forced to take months or years to recover from their damages. In some instances, catastrophic injury victims will be unable to return to work due to the extent of their injuries.

In these scenarios, securing a substantial amount of compensation could not only be used to pay for medical expenses, but could even be the victim's only source of future income. This means your choice in legal representation will be crucial and could even influence the final outcome of your case. Turn to the Fort Lauderdale injury attorneys at Kelley/Uustal.

Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases We Handle

Some accidents can result in minor injuries, like bumps, bruises, or scrapes. In other instances, however, accident victims can suffer debilitating, life-threatening, or even fatal injuries. In these situations, the victims and family members can be forced to live the rest of their lives dealing with the devastating aftermath of someone else's misconduct.

The most common types of catastrophic injury claims include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Head and neck injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Amputation or loss of limbs
  • Temporary or permanent paralysis

Victims of catastrophic injuries can be subject to some of the most painful and traumatic types of damages. From permanent damage to the nervous system to the complete loss of a limb, the result of a catastrophic injury can have life-long emotional, financial, and physical repercussions. This is why you need an aggressive advocate fighting for you.

Life-Changing Injuries Require Maximum Compensation

When an injury is catastrophic in nature, the resulting losses can be enormous. Over the course of a lifetime, a catastrophic injury can result in tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars in medical expenses and lost earnings. And, this still doesn’t account for the physical and emotional suffering experienced by the victim.

If you have suffered a life-changing injury, you deserve compensation for:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Lost income / loss of earning capacity
  • Mental and emotional distress
  • Physical pain and suffering

When you work with a personal injury lawyer at our Fort Lauderdale law firm, you can trust that we will stop at nothing to secure maximum compensation on your behalf. Whether your injuries were caused by a car accident or medical malpractice, our firm can fight for you.
