A catastrophic injury or illness usually occurs suddenly and without warning. It irrevocably changes a person’s life, often putting victims and their families under severe physical, emotional, and financial strain. In many cases, these injuries require long-term medical treatment or leave victims with permanent disability. Management of such an injury is complex and may require the expertise of a team of health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counselors. Injuries such as these are expensive. Few individuals or families have the resources to provide the care such injuries require.
Those who have suffered must look to the legal system for justice and financial reparation.

If a catastrophic injury was caused by the negligent or intentional act of another, or by a dangerous or defective product, a personal injury claim by the victim will be an integral factor in his or her future quality of life. Because of the huge financial impact a catastrophic injury has, one of the most important aspects of bringing a personal injury claim is the determination of the value of such a claim.
Kustoff & Phipps, LLP understands the long-term implications of such injuries and will be better able to ensure that victims receive just compensation and sufficient resources for the future.
