A catastrophic injury is one that changes the life of the victim forever. Such injuries often require a lifetime of treatment as well as personal care. Two of the most serious types of catastrophic injuries are brain injury and spinal trauma. If you or a loved one has sustained this type of harm and someone else may be legally responsible, you need skilled and determined legal representation to help you recover the greatest amount of compensation possible. With Vassallo, Bilotta, Friedman & Davis, you get an accomplished legal team with an impressive record of success in catastrophic injury cases. We understand what is at stake in your case, and we work tirelessly to deliver the results you need.
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, occurs when a force or a foreign object destroys brain tissue. There are three main mechanisms for causing traumatic brain injury:
TBI causes a range of physical, cognitive and emotional symptoms, which are often disabling. Recovery is slow for most victims, and many never fully recover. That’s why it’s essential for TBI victims to seek compensation that fully accounts for their harm over the long term.
The spinal cord is the conduit for messages from the brain to the body. When spinal trauma occurs, brain communication is disrupted, so bodily functions are affected. In the worst cases of spinal trauma, victims suffer:
Auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and slip and fall accidents are common causes of paralysis due to spinal injury.
You only get one chance to sue a defendant, so you must retain an attorney who can capably pursue the maximum amount of compensation. If your accident occurred in the workplace, it’s vitally important that you get a fair total disability settlement from workers’ compensation and that your attorney investigates the facts to see if there are grounds for a third-party lawsuit that would allow you to recover personal injury damages.
Although no lawyer can guarantee an outcome, a practitioner’s track record is a solid indicator of ability to manage your case successfully. When you retain our law firm, you can rely on our knowledge, experience and determination to fight for you.
