Attorneys for Brain Injuries, Spine Injuries, and Other Catastrophic Injuries in Cook County, Kenwood, and Ashburn

While many different types of bodily harm can be troublesome, there are some injuries that are so severe that they affect a person's ability to work, their quality of life, and their overall well-being. These catastrophic injuries will often require extensive medical treatment that can be very costly, and if a person is unable to work or faces other limitations while recovering, the loss of income can lead to additional financial difficulties. In personal injury cases, victims may pursue compensation from people or companies that were responsible, and doing so can be crucial for those who have suffered severe injuries since they will likely need financial help to get back on their feet.

At Karchmar & Lambert, P.C., we understand the difficult position that many victims find themselves in, and if you are struggling because of a catastrophic injury, we are prepared to do everything possible to ensure that you will have the financial resources you need. Our lawyers share more than 50 years of combined experience, and we will provide you with dedicated representation as we gather the necessary evidence to show that someone else was liable for your injuries and demonstrate the impact it has had on your life. With our help, you can receive the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Legal Help With Multiple Types of Catastrophic Injuries

With our years of experience representing clients in personal injury cases, we understand the effects that serious bodily harm can have on a person and their family. We can assist with:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) - A blow to the head can cause brain damage that may be irreversible. As a result, a person may experience seizures, memory loss, confusion, sensory issues, and mood disorders, which can affect their ability to perform daily functions, their enjoyment of life, and their relationships with others.
  • Spinal cord injuries - Damage to the nerves in the spine may result in partial or complete paralysis of different parts of the body, including paraplegia or quadriplegia. These permanent disabilities will often require victims to make modifications to their home and life to accommodate a wheelchair or other assistive devices, and covering these costs can be difficult if an injury has made a person unable to work.
  • Amputations - Injuries that lead to the loss of an arm, leg, hand, finger, or other body part will affect the types of work that a person will be able to perform. For some victims, it may be impossible to return to the activities they enjoyed prior to being injured, resulting in a diminished quality of life.
  • Burn injuries - Fires that occur in car crashes, because of landlord negligence, or for other reasons can cause severe burns. These injuries can be incredibly painful, and they can leave behind permanent scarring and disfigurement.
  • Broken bones - Fractures can cause a great deal of pain, and they often take multiple months to heal completely. In more serious cases, surgery may be needed to repair bones that are crushed or shattered, and a person may never be able to regain the full function of the affected parts of the body.
