Victims with serious injuries may require long-term medical care, extensive rehabilitation and daily assistance to perform even the simplest tasks. An experienced personal injury lawyer who understands the long-term effects of a catastrophic injury will be better equipped to ensure their clients receive the compensation they need to undergo necessary medical procedures while remaining financially secure.

- Costly medical bills including surgery, ongoing care, and prescription medications
- Loss of earnings when you are unable to return to work (if at all)
- A high degree of emotional trauma, anguish and pain and suffering
- A loss of relationships with your spouse, children or other family or friends
