Catastrophic injuries

When people are injured through no fault of their own, they deserve legal representation to ensure adequate and fair compensation for their injuries. Catastrophic injuries involve long-term disability or disfigurement.

If other parties caused or are liable for that injury, they are also obligated to provide restitution that makes the injured person “whole.” Moreover, that means compensation must cover the injured person’s medical expenses and provide for wages lost as a result of the injury.

The Handley Law Center has more than 30 years experience representing injured Oklahomans and has collected damages for its clients from individuals and companies who otherwise would not have paid for their negligence.

Injuries are considered “catastrophic” based either on the disability created for the injured party or the effect an injury has in preventing that party from working a job similar to that which he or she held before the injury. Many times, someone suffering a catastrophic injury will be unable to return to work in the same field as before and should be compensated appropriately.

The Handley Law Center can provide a free consultation to see whether your situation includes grounds for a claim. Catastrophic injuries can include: amputation, brain injury, disfigurement, organ damage, vision loss, mobility impairment, spinal damage and many other debilitating injuries.

If you or a loved one has suffered in this manner and you believe another party is responsible for the injuries, call to set up a time for your consultation. You deserve compensation when someone else is at fault.
