Count On Skilled Legal Advocacy After A Life-Changing Catastrophic Injury

It’s important to have good legal representation for any type of personal injury litigation. But if you or a loved one has sustained serious injuries or been catastrophically injured by someone else’s negligence, finding the right lawyer is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Thankfully, the choice is easy: Cowan Law Firm, LLC. Since 2003, our firm has been a trusted legal resource for injury victims in Dalton and throughout Georgia. Whether your injuries were the result of a car or semi truck accident, dangerous conditions on private property, a dog bite or physician malpractice, our skilled attorneys are ready to protect your rights and advocate for the compensation you deserve.

What Kinds Of Injuries Are Catastrophic?

While catastrophic injuries are legally defined for purposes of Georgia workers’ compensation claims, they are not considered a separate type of claim in a personal injury context. Nonetheless, there is some overlap in the types of injuries considered catastrophic. These include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries and skull injuries
  • Severe injuries to the neck, back and spinal cord
  • Paralysis (quadriplegia or paraplegia)
  • Amputation of a limb (arm, leg, foot, hand)
  • Loss of one or more senses like blindness or deafness
  • Burn injuries covering a substantial portion of the victim’s body or a significant portion of their face and hands

Catastrophic injuries are likely to be life-changing and life-limiting for victims and their families. They may take years or decades to heal and full healing may be impossible. They may prevent the victim from working, may limit their mobility and will negatively impact their quality of life.

Compensation For Serious Injuries Is Critical, And We Are Ready To Fight For It

The costs of treating a catastrophic injury are so high that medical bills alone can send victims into bankruptcy. To protect their own bottom lines, insurance companies for the at-fault parties are likely to contest, deny or underpay claims. Catastrophic injury cases often go to trial when smaller cases would settle.

For these reasons, it is critical to work with an experienced and aggressive trial attorney who knows how to build a compelling case against the at-fault party and fight for maximum compensation. That’s what you’ll find at Cowan Law Firm, LLC. Our two lawyers have more than four decades of combined legal experience in personal injury law, and they come highly recommended by former clients for their tireless advocacy and personalized service.
