Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

West Virginia personal injury attorneys fighting for you

Certain injuries are so devastating that the individual involved will suffer permanent damage and lifelong pain. These can be so severe that injured victims will never have the life they had prior to the accident and may be hospitalized for the rest of their lives. The catastrophic injury lawyers at Mani Ellis & Layne, PLLC help victims and their families recover compensation to help ease that burden.

One thing that is consistent with catastrophic injuries is the tremendous financial burden that they bring. The victims of catastrophic injuries have the right to seek justice and financial compensation for their injuries when they occur as the result of another party's careless or negligent actions. They face substantial medical expenses for the rest of their lives and may not be able to work.

Some of the catastrophic injury cases our firm handles include:

  • Spinal cord injuries - Those who have suffered spinal cord damage may suffer long-term rehabilitative needs and may even be permanently disabled either with paraplegia or quadriplegia.
  • Burn injuries - The survivors of burn injuries are put through some of the most painful and horrific injuries that a person can experience. Burns not only cause intense physical pain because of damaged nerve endings, but also bring about emotional and psychological effects because of disability and disfigurement.
  • Traumatic brain injuries - Also known as TBI, traumatic brain injuries can happen when damage to the brain is caused by an outside force such as rapid acceleration, a nearby blast, traffic collision or blow to the skull. A TBI can result in a permanent impairment that causes changes in the mind's ability to function properly.
  • Amputation - After a traumatic accident, the accident victim may need to have a limb or extremity amputated because of the injuries that he or she has sustained. Rehabilitation can be a long and difficult process and some amputees also go through psychological counseling as well.

Our personal injury lawyers recover maximum compensation for our clients. We are aggressive advocates for the injured and do not back down until the claim is resolved successfully, or we proceed to trial. We have obtained many significant outcomes for our clients, both in settlements and verdicts.
