Catastrophic Injury Attorney Serving Fairfield County, CT
Westport Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Victims of Severe Accidents
Catastrophic injuries such as amputations or burns have lifelong consequences for the injury victims and their families. Long-term medical treatment, psychological effects and severe pain may prevent the victim from performing daily tasks, maintaining relationships and returning to work.
If you or a loved one has suffered a disfiguring or catastrophic injury, you need financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life. These types of permanent injuries are usually eligible for greater compensation than temporary or minor injuries. I will pursue your injury claim until you receive the compensation you deserve. Simply contact me at the law office of Richard H. Raphael in Westport, Connecticut.
Burn Injuries and Amputations
Few injuries are as painful as burns. While many people think of fire as the main cause of burns, they can also be caused by electric shock, explosions and chemical exposure. The injuries caused by burns are usually severe and may include:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of sight, hearing or smell
- Nerve and tissue damage
People with burn injuries usually need long-term medical care that many include skin grafts, cosmetic procedures, pain management, physical therapy and psychotherapy. I can help you seek compensation for these expenses.
As a personal injury attorney, I also represent people who have suffered amputations. Injuries that require amputations are often caused by car accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents. The effects of an amputation may include psychological trauma, loss of mobility, phantom pain and wound pain. The medical treatment often requires pain management, rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, and psychotherapy.
