Catastrophic Injuries

Some injuries are so severe that they have a truly life-changing impact on the victims. These injuries permanently alter the course of a person’s life and can bring limitations in performing even the most basic mental and physical activities. They can even cause the development of related, severe medical problems such as respiratory illness or heart disease, and may lead to death due to secondary results like pneumonia or heart attack. Catastrophic injuries have many causes, including heavy truck or 18-wheeler crashes, gun accidents, oil and gas field or rig accidents, hunting accidents, off-road vehicle accidents, farm and ranch accidents, car accidents, falls, choking, medical carelessness, defective products, and workplace accidents. When a catastrophic injury is caused by the negligence of another person or business, Jon L. Anderson Law Office helps victims obtain the funds you or your family need to cope with the lifelong effects of the injuries.

Like back injuries, these injuries can ruin lives. 

A lawyer qualified in personal injury can obtain expert testimony addressing the otherwise invisible mental and emotional damages that don’t show up on an x-ray. A victim can appear perfectly normal but be anything from it. 

It takes skill and experience to paint the picture for the jury. Care over the life of an injured person can be a significant financial burden to the family.  Loss of wage earning capacity, physical impairment, medical expenses, and pain and suffering are all elements of damage that can be argued.

Whether in appearance, health care costs, or extreme illness, severe burns have tragic and lifelong effects. They may be the result of heavy truck or 18-wheeler crashes, oil and gas field or rig accidents, off-road vehicle accidents, farm and ranch accidents, car accidents, medical carelessness, defective products, workplace accidents, or many other causes. If your severe burn injury was caused by the negligence of another person or business, our attorneys can help you obtain the funds you or your family need to cope with the consequences of the injuries.
There are no medical issues that instill more fear than a cancer diagnosis. Advanced medicine has pinpointed the cause of many types of cancer as the result of preventable accidents, working conditions, and environments that have irreversible, life-changing impact on victims. If your life has been permanently altered because you suffer from cancer caused by the negligence or unlawful behavior of another person or company, you may be saddled with impossible financial burdens. Our attorneys will help you obtain the funds you or your family need to cope with the lifelong aftermath of diagnosis and treatment.
Injuries that result in the loss of use of control of parts of the body can bring permanent limitations in performing even the most basic mental and physical activities. Paralysis can even cause you to develop related, terrible medical problems such as respiratory illness or heart disease, and may lead to death due to secondary results like pneumonia or heart attack. Catastrophic injuries resulting in paralysis can be the result of heavy truck or 18-wheeler crashes, gun accidents, oil and gas field or rig accidents, hunting accidents, off-road vehicle accidents, farm and ranch accidents, car accidents, falls, choking, medical carelessness, defective products, and workplace accidents. If you suffered a catastrophic injury resulting in paralysis through no fault of your own, our attorneys will help you obtain the funds you or your family need to make it through the difficult times that follow.
