Serious Injury Settlements

Catastrophic injuries, sometimes called serious injuries, are injuries that cause long-term pain, dysfunction or disability. Our clients who suffered such injuries experience permanent or long-lasting effects in every aspect of their lives, including their jobs, family, physical ability, recreational activities and overall lifestyle.

If you, a loved one or family member has suffered a serious or catastrophic injury because someone else was careless, reckless or otherwise negligent, we are here to help.


The Truth About Settlements

Insurance companies will invariably offer a settlement when liability and negligence can be proved. However, often these settlements are not sufficient to cover the extent of damage and the required care, not to mention financial compensation for pain, suffering and loss of amenity. More often, it takes a law firm known for its trial acumen, expertise, resources and experienced personal injury lawyers to force an insurance company to pay what is fair and just.

Over the years we have developed a depth of expertise by working together with our serious injury clients against insurance companies, the government and other corporations. We have the financial resources and experience to ensure that our client’s rights are enforced and that their case can be heard in court against big organizations. Our experience in this area of the law enables us to resolve our cases favourably for our clients or push through to completion through trial.


Understanding a Long-Term Disability

A serious or catastrophic injury will often leave you unable to work and incur high medical and care expenses that can include long-term care, home care and special modifications to your vehicle, workplace and home. These injuries are often the result of a car accident or motorcycle accident, but they can also happen as a result of a workplace accident, a slip and fall in a store, or due to medical negligence.


Serious injuries typically involve, among other injuries, the following:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Severe burns
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Permanent scars or disfigurement
  • Loss of vision or hearing
  • Multiple orthopaedic injuries


If you suffered a serious injury, you know that the injury is not isolated but affects all areas of your life. Everything changes after a serious injury, including your relationship with your partner, friends and family. The emotional impact is often the least addressed and the most difficult.


Your Right To Pursue Full Compensation

If you have suffered a severe or catastrophic injury you have the right to pursue financial compensation. Damages that can be pursued include:

  • Loss of current and future wages
  • Permanent disability
  • Current and future medical bills
  • Extended rehabilitation services
  • Pain, suffering and loss of amenity


Insurance Company Offers for Settlement

The sad truth is that most settlements offered by insurance companies do not even cover a fraction of the real costs of serious injury, and seldom include satisfactory compensation for pain and suffering. If you have suffered a serious injury we can help you to recover your full compensation and push through to a favourable completion of your case.
