catastrophic personal injury
As plaintiff attorneys, we often bear witness to the devastating effects a life-altering personal injury has—not only on our client, but also on his or her family. At Stratton Faxon, we are dedicated to seeking justice for every catastrophic injury and loss that we handle.
This area of law is designed to protect those harmed by the negligence, recklessness or malpractice of others and encompasses a full range of legal claims—from wrongful death, auto accidents or birth trauma to defective drugs, product liability or aviation disasters.
Although you can never fully regain the loss suffered as a result of a catastrophic personal injury, you can recover financial compensation for medical costs, loss of income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, disability and other resulting injuries you may have incurred. At Stratton Faxon, we work extremely hard, and often creatively, to prove the adverse party in your case truly bears legal responsibility for your injury and that the damages claimed reflect the total extent of the injury or loss.
A statute of limitations applies to all personal injury cases; however, it may vary based on your claim. Because catastrophic personal injury is a broad, evolving area of law, you should contact our office to discuss your individual claim. Some of the cases we frequently handle that fall under personal injury law are: sexual abuse, slip and fall, toxic mold, car and truck accidents, wrongful death, construction accidents, injury at work, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, premise liability, product recall, playground accidents, birth injury and aviation disasters.
