Fort Lauderdale Catastrophic Injury Lawyer with Decades of Experience and Millions of Dollars Recovered
All types of accidents can result in catastrophic injuries. From collisions on the road to collisions between athletes, and from slips and falls to impacts from falling objects, it only takes one unexpected occurrence to trigger a lifetime of consequences. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, it will be important for you to speak with a personal injury lawyer. You are facing a long-term (and perhaps lifelong) recovery process, and the process will be both expensive and demanding. Securing just compensation can help ease the burden for you and your family, but you will need an experienced Fort Lauderdale catastrophic injury lawyer to help you secure the compensation to which you are entitled.
We Help Individuals and Families Recover from Catastrophic Injuries
At Maus Law Firm, we help individuals and families in South Florida recover financial compensation for all types of catastrophic injuries. Regardless of what happened, we strongly encourage you to contact us for a free, no-obligation consultation. There are many circumstances under which accident victims and families can recover their losses, and we will carefully assess all possible options for pursuing a financial recovery on your behalf.
We handle cases involving all types of catastrophic injuries, including:
Permanent Nerve Damage
Permanent nerve damage can impact all aspects of a person’s life. It can make it more difficult (if not impossible) to work, and it can make it more difficult (if not impossible) to enjoy your hobbies and time with loved ones.
Loss of Digits and Limbs
Losing a digit or limb is a life-altering experience. It can be extremely difficult to cope with your new reality, and adjusting to life with a disability can seem like too much to bear. Therapy can be extraordinarily expensive, and it can take months – if not years or decades – to move on.
Scarring and Disfigurement
Scarring and disfigurement from burns and other severe injuries can impact your life in many unexpected ways. Many people find it extraordinarily difficult to cope – and understandably so – and they need a significant amount of help adjusting to their new normal.
Severe Bone Fractures
Severe bone fractures can lead to disfigurement, chronic pain and permanent disabilities. While surgery can help in some cases, severe bone fractures will frequently have permanent consequences.
Severe burns can also change all aspects of a person’s life. Burn victims will often need to undergo multiple surgeries, and even successful skin grafts can result in chronic pain and permanent limitations. For obvious reasons, many burn victims experience severe emotional trauma as well.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can result from all different types of accidents—including accidents that seem relatively minor when they occur. We represent individuals and families who are struggling to cope with the effects of paralysis, anterior cord syndrome, central cord syndrome, Brown-Sequard syndrome, and other types of spinal cord injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are among the most-common types of catastrophic injuries. These, too, can result from accidents that seem minor without the benefit of hindsight. We handle cases involving car crashes, falls and other accidents resulting in all types of TBI, including:
- Concussions, second-impact syndrome and post-concussive syndrome
- Coup-contrecoup injuries
- Diffuse axonal injuries
- Hematomas and hemorrhages
- Penetrating brain injuries (skull fractures)
- Secondary brain injuries (i.e. hypoxia and ischemia)
What You Need to Know if You or a Loved One has Suffered a Catastrophic Injury in Fort Lauderdale
If you, your spouse or partner, your child, or your aging parent has suffered a catastrophic injury, there is a lot you need to know. Here are five important facts for catastrophic injury victims and their families in South Florida:
If the catastrophic injury resulted from someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
Many catastrophic injuries result from accidents, and many of these accidents result from someone else’s negligence. If you or your loved one was injured in a vehicle collision, boating or cruise ship accident, slip and fall, bicycle accident, sports accident, or any other accident in which someone else may have been fully or partially to blame, you should speak with a Fort Lauderdale catastrophic injury lawyer.
Negligence can take many different forms.
There are many different forms of negligence—and not all forms of negligence will be apparent at the time an accident occurs. From drunk driving and distracted driving to failure to follow safety protocols or adequately maintain publicly-accessible premises, numerous types of mistakes can entitle accident victims and their loved ones to just compensation.
Most negligence claims are covered by insurance.
In the vast majority of cases, recovering just compensation for a catastrophic injury involves negotiating an insurance settlement. Auto insurance, homeowners insurance, renters insurance, commercial liability insurance, and many other types of insurance policies cover accident-related losses. While it might eventually be necessary to go to trial, if you have a strong claim, there is a good chance that an experienced catastrophic injury attorney will be able to secure a favorable settlement without going to court.
The lifetime costs of a catastrophic injury can be substantial.
From medical bills and lost earnings to pain, suffering and emotional trauma, the lifetime costs of a catastrophic injury far exceed most people’s expectations. As a result, it is extremely important for injury victims and their families to recover the financial compensation they deserve.
You can hire a Fort Lauderdale catastrophic injury lawyer to help you at no out-of-pocket cost.
At Maus Law Firm, we handle all catastrophic injury cases on a contingency-fee basis. This means that we provide representation at no out-of-pocket cost to you. If we help you recover just compensation, then we will collect a contingency fee which is calculated as a percentage of your award.
