Experienced Chicago Catastrophic Injury Attorneys Help Those in Dire Need

Superior counsel to victims whose injuries irrevocably change their lives

Any personal injury can be serious, but some types of injuries are so severe that they are termed catastrophic. These tend to be injuries that leave a victim permanently disabled. Such victims face astronomical medical and care costs as well as years of pain and suffering, but their families suffer as well. If you or someone you love has suffered a severe injury in the state of Illinois, contact the catastrophic injury lawyers in Chicago at The Law Offices of Newman, Boyer & Statham, Ltd. as soon as possible.

Injuries for which a catastrophic injury lawyer in Chicago can help you seek compensation

In catastrophic injury cases, it matters less how the accident occurred — whether in a truck accident, due to medical malpractice or a defective product — and more on the circumstances of the injury itself. Such injuries can be suffered in countless ways, and victims endure their effects for years. The most common types of catastrophic injuries include the following:

  • Brian injuries, including traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Neck and spinal injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Severe burns

The type of catastrophic injury you have suffered should inform your choice of legal representation. If you sustained a spinal cord injury as a result of negligence, for example, you need to secure a Chicago spinal cord injury lawyer with experience specific to your type of injury.

What compensation can an attorney help you obtain?

Severe injuries have massive impacts on the lives of victims and their families. Victims may be left unable to work in any meaningful way or earn any substantive income. When brain injuries are involved, victims’ personalities could fundamentally change or their memories could be destroyed. All of this can take a massive financial and emotional toll on the family of the victim as well.

Spinal cord, brain and catastrophic injury lawyers in Chicago understand how important any amount of financial compensation can be to a family feeling the strain of an undue injury.
