New York Catastrophic Injury Attorney
After a serious car crash or accident, you or a loved one may have been left with severe, life-altering injuries that will require extensive treatment and rehabilitation. If your catastrophic injuries were the result of negligent or reckless behavior by another New York driver, business owner, or product manufacturer, it is critically important that you hire an attorney to pursue your claims who understands the costs associated with these injuries and how to successfully prove those costs in court. A catastrophic injury attorney of Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello experienced in New York catastrophic injury law will make sure you’re fully compensated after you’re hurt. If you or a loved one have experienced any of the following tragic injuries, contact our office for a consultation on your potential claims.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as an impairment in brain function, ranging from short-term to permanent, caused by an external force, such as a blow to the head, sudden and violent jolt, or piercing by an object. TBIs can interfere with a victim’s abilities to perform basic tasks, such as speaking and walking; can impair the victim’s memory; and can cause the victim to suffer mood swings. TBIs require accident victims to undergo expensive testing, such as CAT scans or MRIs, just to diagnose, and require costly rehabilitation and treatment extending into the months and years after the accident. You’re entitled to have that treatment and rehabilitation paid for by the party responsible for the injury, so that you can obtain all the care you need without worrying about the cost. Our firm’s attorneys are experienced in proving brain injury claims for negligence victims in Marlboro and Kingston, and throughout Ulster County.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The spine is integral to the functioning of the body’s nervous system. Even minor injuries to the spinal cord can result in limited movement of a hand or limb or nerve damage, and a serious injury can cause lifelong impairment or paralysis. Physical therapy, full-time nursing, and experimental treatments can cause a threat of bankruptcy for families caring for a spinal injury victim. Instead, hire a Hudson Valley lawyer who will seek full compensation for all costs of treatment, rehabilitation and assistive technologies, and any pain and suffering you or your loved one incurs.
Severe burns are extremely dangerous, as they are not only painful, but they leave victims vulnerable to serious infection, shock and other life-threatening conditions. Burns can limit movement of affected areas, cause nerve damage, and require extensive reconstructive surgery and skin grafts. Rusk, Wadlin, Heppner & Martuscello’s lawyers can aggressively pursue your claims for burn injuries, to allow you to focus on your physical recovery while we handle your monetary recovery.
