San Diego Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

If you have been involved in a serious accident, bearing the burden of catastrophic, life altering injuries, will be nearly impossible to navigate alone against the insurance companies.

We have a team who help people that we put on your side and we work on a No Win, No Fee, Guarantee basis.

As a legal concept, catastrophic injury refers to any type of physical injury that results in a victim’s need for serious medical treatment and long-term, if not lifelong care. It generally also means a claim will be made for long term unemployment or alternate employment. As the 2017 Recipient of the Client Choice Award, our results and commitment speak for themselves.

If you and your family are grieving from the pain of a loved one because of the recklessness of another person or entity, it is understandable to feel angry and overwhelmed. While every situation is unique, many of our clients have found peace of mind and a sense of closure, in securing the financial compensation and long-term care needed, from the people responsible for the irreversible injuries of either themselves or their loved one. As highly experienced catastrophic personal injury attorneys, our team of injury lawyers are here to help you and your family navigate the complicated landscape of insurance litigation.

Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Unfortunately, we live in a world where the behavior of others, can sometimes threaten the safety and lives of those around them. Maybe they were drinking and driving, texting, checking their phone, or simply acting with careless disregard for others, resulting in injuring an innocent bystander so catastrophically, that in the blink of an eye, their lives are forever changed.

We’ve found that the most common causes of catastrophic injuries can generally be attributed to car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian hit and run, motorcycle accidents, drunk driver accidents, commercial trucking accidents, slip and fall and construction accidents to name a few.

Do you have to pay for representation?

No. We handle all cases on a contingency basis, with a no fee until we win guarantee. You only pay when we recover money on your behalf. Our fees are based on a percentage of the final settlement we are able to recover for you.

Types of Compensation to Relieve Your Losses

Of course, there is no sum of money that can ever replace the health and well-being of yourself of a loved one, but financial compensation may greatly help with the unforeseen expenses that make it difficult to make ends meet financially.

We look not only to your immediate and short-term needs, but most importantly, toward the care we anticipate you will need for the rest of your life. During the course of your case, we consult with medical experts to detail the specific damages, and what that means to your future.

We then seek compensation for things such as:

  • Intensive care or nursing home care
  • Assisted living aides
  • Modifications to the home or vehicles
  • Wheelchairs, lifts and medical equipment
  • Psychiatric/psychological care
  • Lost earning capacity and vocational retraining
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost enjoyment of life
