Serious and Catastrophic Injuries

The attorneys at Hanratty Law Group are experienced in all areas of personal injury claims. Unfortunately in that experience comes the requirement to characterize each and every injury in terms of money on behalf of our clients.

While other law firms may take each and every case that comes through the door, Hanratty Law Group is selective in the cases it takes in a diligent attempt at giving each and every client the time and attention they need to obtain the maximum level of compensation for the client.

It is also imperative that the attorney represent the client to the best if his/her ability and to fully advise the responsible party and its insurance company of who the client is and the effects that the accident has had on their life and family. In doing so, Hanratty Law Group strives to present the most compelling argument for the client to obtain the maximum level of compensation.

Valuing a Claim for Catastrophic Injury or Wrongful Death

An injury is considered catastrophic when a client requires long-term medical treatment, long-term rehabilitation, or suffers a permanent injury and/or disability. Examples include significant back, neck and spinal cord injuries, paralysis, permanent nerve damage, chronic and endless pain post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), amputation, and loss of life functions such as the ability to speak, breath, see, or hear.

Calculating the value of any given injury often includes consultation with numerous experts including occupational therapists, life-care therapists, economic experts to assess valuing and calculating the costs of future care and accommodations, and in extreme cases long-term nursing experts to calculate the costs of all such future treatment.

Hanratty Law Group will also seek recovery for you and your family’s loss of the injured party’s ability to work (wage loss), the already endured and future pain and suffering, and loss of consortium (services) to a spouse. If you have experienced any of these injuries, or just need to speak to one of our attorneys, please feel free to contact Hanratty Law Group today.
