Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Chicago

Representing Victims of Serious Injuries & Their Loved Ones

Even a minor accident can have disastrous effects on the human body. Ultimately, it does not take a high-speed collision or a fall from a significant height to cause a serious injury. Many factors contribute to the severity of an injury. If you or your loved one was seriously injured in an accident, our firm can thoroughly examine your case and work with your doctor to determine if your injury will have long-lasting or life-changing effects.

The Chicago catastrophic injury lawyers at Woodruff Johnson & Evans have more than a century of combined experience handling even the most complex serious injury cases. Our injured clients rely on us for thorough preparation and skilled representation. We work diligently to understand all of the facts of a client’s injury, such as any ancillary complications, necessary surgeries, hospital stays, physical therapy, or life alterations. We pride ourselves on examining the big picture to learn exactly how an injury will change our clients’ lives.

If you or your loved one suffered a serious injury that resulted in permanent, life-altering impacts, contact us now at (866) 400-4450 for a free consultation with a member of our legal team.

What Are “Catastrophic Injuries?”

Some injuries are more severe than others. Generally, when an injury has temporary or permanent life-altering effects, it is considered “catastrophic” in nature. Serious or catastrophic injuries are those that affect an individual’s ability to return to his or her normal life before the accident. They may preclude the victim from returning to work or from obtaining any gainful employment whatsoever. Ultimately, these injuries tend to require the most medical care—including ongoing treatment—and have the most lasting financial, physical, and emotional effects on the victim and his or her family.

Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Closed head injuries
  • Amputations
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical burns
  • Third-degree heat burns

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury or have lost a loved one in wrongful death, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced serious injury attorney. We can fight to protect your financial stability while giving you the freedom to recover to a pre-accident state of health.
