Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Negligence or wrongdoing may cause catastrophic injuries. Accidents do happen, but they often have a specific cause that can be traced back to an act of recklessness or misconduct. This means that a specific person or company may be held legally responsible for the effects of the accident or other incident that caused catastrophic harm to another person.
Our New York City serious injury lawyers take on cases involving:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Defective and dangerous products
- Construction accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Dog bites
Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your injuries and who caused them, you may be entitled to monetary damages for medical bills, ongoing treatment, physical therapy, medication, assistive devices, in-home care, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, emotional trauma, and more. Let us maximize the value of your claim so you have the opportunity to put the pieces of your life back together.
