Cincinnati Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Catastrophic Injury – Wrongful Death Lawyers - Ohio Burg Simpson

Few things can change a life as quickly and as dramatically as a catastrophic injury. Although there is no universally accepted legal definition of which injuries qualify as “catastrophic,” the American Medical Association defines the term as a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain. Additionally, the U.S. National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research classifies types of catastrophic injuries based on the result: fatality, permanent severe functional disability, and severe head and neck trauma with no permanent disability. What these definitions all have in are that catastrophic injuries are devastating and may cause lifelong impairments.

Burg Simpson’s personal injury lawyers in Cincinnati represent victims of catastrophic injuries and their families. As catastrophic injury attorneys, we understand what it takes to demonstrate our clients’ life-altering injuries to a jury and secure the compensation they deserve.

What to Do If You or a Loved One Suffers from a Catastrophic Personal Injury in Cincinnati

If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury, you need to enlist the help of a personal injury attorney who is capable of handling such a complicated lawsuit and fighting for the compensation you deserve. Under no circumstances should you try to negotiate or accept any settlement on your own.

Our Cincinnati personal injury lawyers understand that the vast majority of catastrophic injuries include damage that goes well beyond the initial medical costs, or even the anticipated future costs of care. Physical therapy can take months – if not years – to be effective, and in these situations, that can be considered a best-case scenario. All too often, these injuries can render someone disabled or disfigured for life, making a return to a semblance of normal life all but impossible. Furthermore, the emotional and mental costs can linger for the rest of the victim’s life. Burg Simpson’s compassionate team of catastrophic injury attorneys understand this and are here to help you.
