Unforeseen catastrophic injuries are devastating and can happen suddenly, leaving companies and employers questioning their ability to remain solvent in the face of enormous liabilities these events create, and leaving victims frightened and vulnerable. Often, a person who sustains a catastrophic injury requires long-term to lifelong medical care from physicians, physical therapists and psychologists - as well as the use of medical devices and medications. Such an injury can destroy a person's ability to work, pay bills and remain independent. Without adequate risk planning and insurance coverage, companies and employers can face tough questions about the viability of a business. If that isn't difficult enough, dealing with insurance companies and the legal system can be overwhelming, for plaintiffs and defendants alike.
Murphy, Pearson, Bradley and Feeney's Catastrophic Injury group helps those affected by catastrophic injury and casualty. Over the years, we have successfully assisted our clients in litigating cases involving, brain, head and spinal cord injuries; loss of eyesight and loss of hearing; paralysis; burn injuries; and amputation.
For our corporate and business clients, we offer counseling regarding the appropriate risk management measures and legal protections to take before catastrophic events occur, and in the event our clients are faced with these difficult challenges, or where the blame is misplaced by overzealous plaintiffs or attorneys, we aggressively defend their rights - from the initial investigation through trial and appeal.
