Types Of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic neck, head and spinal cord injuries often cause acute chronic pain and long-term health problems that require ongoing medical care. They can lead to paralysis and affect an injured victim’s motor skills, muscle strength and ability to control bodily functions such as bladder and bowel movements, breathing and sexual performance. The cost of multiple surgeries, hospitalization, rehabilitation, physical therapy and long-term care can reach into the millions of dollars. Our brain injury lawyers have recovered compensation for clients who have suffered head, neck and spinal cord injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, loss of sight and hearing loss.
Other types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Loss of limbs
- Burns, scarring and disfigurement
- Severe fractures and crushed bones
- Chronic illness or injury caused dangerous chemicals or substances
Brain injuries can also cause debilitating psychological conditions such as PTSD, depression and anxiety.

Insurance Company Negotiations And Litigation
Sadly, insurance companies are in the business of making money and try to pay as little as possible on personal injury claims or even deny valid claims altogether. Our seasoned legal team at The Stanley Law Offices takes care of negotiations with insurance companies so you and your family can concentrate on your health and well-being. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, our experienced litigators will not hesitate to take your case to court and fight to help you recover maximum compensation for your damages.
