Recovering adequate compensation for a serious injury requires more than just being able to prove the negligence of the other driver or person responsible for causing the accident. Obtaining sufficient results requires a thorough understanding of the unique challenges facing the serious accident victim, which often involves long-term and life-long needs and expenses. As Santa Barbara catastrophic injury lawyers with decades of experience recovering large settlements and verdicts for people with serious injuries, our firm has the knowledge, skill and ability necessary to achieve a successful result.
Skilled Santa Barbara Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
At James McKiernan Lawyers, we see some of the most serious accidents and the injuries they cause. Automobile accidents involving trucks, buses, or SUVs often cause serious damage to the smaller vehicle and its occupants. Even collisions involving small cars can result in rollovers and crushed roofs, fuel fires and explosions, and other serious damage. When a case involves a serious back injury or traumatic brain injury, our firm answers the call with forceful representation designed to achieve successful results. In the most serious of cases, Santa Barbara catastrophic injury lawyers from our office fight to see that grieving family members are taken care and are not forced to endure financial hardships from the loss of a loved one.
Serious injuries almost always involve additional long-term or life-long expenses beyond the initial need for medical care. One way to approach this issue is to develop a life care plan for the injured individual. A life care plan is a comprehensive document that can serve as a road map for the individual to know what to expect and plan for throughout life and make sure all future needs are thought of and planned for to the fullest extent possible. This document can also prove invaluable in preparation for trial. It may be used in settlement negotiations or in presentations to the jury to justify the amount of money damages being sought. Our Santa Barbara catastrophic injury lawyers work with neurologists, occupational therapists and life care planners to make sure your condition is fully understood and that all your present and future needs will be taken care of.
