Catastrophic Injuries And Wrongful Death

An accident resulting in a catastrophic injury can affect you — and your family — for many years to come. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury, spine injury, burn injury or other type of injury due to someone else's negligence or recklessness, you have a right to seek financial compensation for your losses. Such losses may include medical expenses, permanent disability, in-home care costs, lost income, lost earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, pain, suffering and more.

Let the personal injury attorneys at Siegal & Richardson LLP help you obtain the full and fair compensation you deserve. We are a team of aggressive, compassionate, experienced lawyers who know how to assess the full extent of an injury — and how it will affect your life now and in the future.

Wrongful Death Damages

Losing a loved one is devastating. If the loved one's death was caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness — whether in a motor vehicle accident, or as a result of a defective product, medical malpractice, or any other reason — surviving family members are entitled to be compensated for the wrongful death.

Obviously, money isn't going to bring your loved one back, but the financial consequences of a family member's death can be overwhelming, and you really do need a lawyer to ensure that you and your family are compensated fairly.

Wrongful death damages typically include compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses, future lost wages and benefits, and emotional losses. If you have recently lost a loved one and you believe it was a wrongful death, do not — under any circumstances — sign a settlement agreement before you talk to us. We can help ensure that you receive the maximum available compensation to which you are entitled.

Brain Injuries

In most cases, brain injuries are the result of a sudden impact to the head, although injuries to the brain can also occur as a result of oxygen deprivation. Sometimes the damage to the brain is not immediately obvious, and signs of a brain injury may not be apparent until days or even weeks or months after the accident. In fact, even a mild concussion can result in changes to a person's mood, memory, ability to concentrate and ability to even sleep.

At Siegal & Richardson LLP, we have the extensive experience and resources to assess the physical, emotional and financial cost of a brain injury. These are not simple calculations, and it is in your best interest to consult with an attorney who understands the magnitude of your injury.

We can put the pieces of your case together by assembling any witnesses, gathering medical evidence, assessing the various costs of the injury, and representing you with strength, compassion and integrity throughout the entire process.

Spine Injuries

Whether or not they result in paralysis, spinal cord injuries are life-changing. Because of the sensitive nature of the spinal cord, these injuries often require long-term medical treatment, the cost of which can be overwhelming. Additionally, lost wages, rehabilitation and all of the necessary home modifications required to deal with a spine injury can have a lasting impact on your financial situation.

As personal injury attorneys with more than 45 combined years of experience, we will work on your behalf to help you get the full and fair compensation you need for the financial, physical and emotional losses resulting from a spine injury, whether it occurred as a result of an auto accident, a construction site accident or a falling accident.

Burn Injuries

Devastating burn injuries can require years of medical treatment and leave you unable to work and earn a living on your own. In addition to lost wages, medical expenses can quickly pile up as you try to navigate your road to recovery. No matter the degree of the burn, a serious burn injury can have an impact on one's appearance, as well as have long-lasting psychological effects.

Whether your injury is from a defective product, unsafe property conditions or a fiery car accident, our lawyers can investigate your case and work to ensure that the party who caused your injury is held responsible. We have extensive experience in these matters, and we can help you obtain the compensation you need for emotional and financial losses, as well as any cosmetic surgery you may need.
