The personal injury attorneys handle all types of serious injury cases, including:

Catastrophic Injuries – These injuries require more than just a surgery or single treatment. They can involve irreparable damage, permanent disability, fatal injuries, paralysis, and other life-altering consequences.

Traumatic Brain Injury – Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, usually involves some type of brain damage and can range from memory loss to severe neurological or cognitive impairment to coma.

Orthopedic Injury – Orthopedic injuries involve the bones, joints and ligament systems and can cause back and spinal pain, hand and wrist injuries, elbow and shoulder problems, and hip, knee, and ankle problems.

Spinal Disc Injury – Spinal disc injury can cause disc compression and may result in herniation (tear) or rupture. Tingling, burning and numbness are just the start of a myriad of painful symptoms.

Burns – Chemical, electrical and heat burns are very difficult and expensive to treat and may require multiple surgeries and skin grafting.

Neck Injury – Chronic neck pain may be a sign of a spinal disc injury or other spinal cord dysfunctions.

Paralysis – Paralysis refers to a loss of muscle function and may be caused by trauma to the nervous system, brain, or spinal cord.

Whiplash – Whiplash is pain and stiffness that occurs after an accident when the ligaments, muscles, and tendons of the neck are forced to extend beyond their normal range of motion.
