Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
in Atlanta, Georgia
Almost 100 million Americans a year find themselves in the emergency room due to an unintentional injury.
Tragically, for many, this emergency visit is just the first in a long series of doctor's appointments, check-ups, and surgeries on their journey to recover from a catastrophic injury. Unexpected accidents can turn your world upside down and leave you facing mounting debt, loss of mobility, reduced quality of life, and a long road towards recovery.
We understand the challenges, stress, and anxiety that follow a catastrophic injury. If you've been the victim of a catastrophic or severe injury, you shouldn't have to worry about pursuing the fair compensation you deserve.
We founded our firm to remove this burden from injured individuals in our city of Atlanta, Georgia, and the surrounding communities of Savannah, Macon, and Columbus.
We have dedicated our legal career to offering comprehensive legal representation and advocacy for the victims of severe injuries against powerful groups like employers, corporations, government bodies and agencies, and more.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
The United States Code defines catastrophic injuries as those that permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.
In the state of Georgia, labor codes define catastrophic injuries as:
Spinal Cord Injuries - involving severe paralysis of an arm, leg, or trunk.
Amputation - of an arm, a hand, a foot, or a leg.
Severe Brain or Closed Head Injury - severe or closed head injuries are legally considered catastrophic if they cause:
Severe sensory or mobility issues
Severe reduction in the ability to communicate
Damage to regular cerebral function
Severe disturbances to mood or consciousness
Severe and ongoing neurological disorders
Second or Third-Degree Burns - over 25% of the body, or third-degree burns to 5%+ of the face or hands.
Blindness - defined as vision so poor an individual cannot work
Catastrophic Injury Law
As you can imagine, injuries that prevent individuals from working also impact the rest of their life.
Mobility issues, emotional suffering, chronic pain, and challenging physical therapy await victims of catastrophic injuries on the road to recovery.
And unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are more common than you think. Around 2.7 million Americans suffer workplace injuries every year. And someone in America suffers a traumatic brain injury every 23 seconds.
Juggling recovery and day-to-day responsibilities become a tall order after a severe injury. The idea of adding complex court proceedings and legal processes to pursue a fair payout is just too much for many injury victims to consider.
We are friendly injury attorneys committed to
pursuing justice for you.
