Personal injury matters often result in serious, catastrophic injuries that can change the lives of injury victims and their families forever. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury as a result of negligence, it may be possible to obtain financial compensation for your damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation costs.
At Portner & Shure, our experienced injury attorneys in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., have more than 20 years of experience pursuing the rights of injury victims. We focus on obtaining full compensation for our clients, handling all interactions with the insurance companies so they can focus on making a full recovery from their injuries.
Catastrophic Injury Claims Our Attorneys Have Tried
Negligence can result in serious injuries in many ways, including auto accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, premises liability and workplace accidents. We have experience handling claims involving catastrophic injuries such as:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
These injuries often result in the need for long-term care and significant changes in lifestyle. For example, the victim of paraplegia or quadriplegia may need to have his or her entire home retrofitted with ramps, elevators and other equipment to maintain his or her quality of life after the injury.
We work with experts such as life planners and vocational experts to determine the true extent of the needs our clients have after a serious injury. Then we work hard to make sure that any verdicts or settlements cover the past, current and future needs of our clients.
