Tell Us Your Story

Notice For: Anyone who has suffered a catastrophic injury.

Pond Lehocky Giordano is investigating claims on behalf of individuals who were catastrophically injured—during employment or otherwise. For more information, please fill out the contact form.

Catastrophic injuries

Catastrophic injuries are caused by life-altering events that result in lasting physical and/or psychological harm. Examples include injuries caused by serious vehicle, boating, or pedestrian accidents, extreme sports accidents, or being caught in an explosion or fire.

Our catastrophic injury lawyers handle all types of cases, including:

  • Amputation
  • Back, neck, and shoulder injuries
  • Drastic personality changes
  • Electrocution
  • Eye injuries
  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Neurological disorders
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Multiple bone fractures
Catastrophic injury settlements

When catastrophic injuries are caused by another person, the injured party may be entitled to financial compensation. This money is meant to compensate the victim for the emotional and physical trauma they have experienced.

The compensation amount is based on the severity of the victim’s injury, current and future financial obligations and hardships, and an estimated cost of long-term care.

Personal hardships that are considered include:

  • Loss of future wages
  • Required medical equipment
  • Ongoing or permanent disability care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Childcare

It’s important for catastrophic injury victims to remember that any settlement or judgment will be final. That’s why it’s crucial to hire a thorough attorney who will fight to maximize the victim’s recovery.

It is also important to hire an experienced attorney because without legal counsel, the injured party may be taken advantage of by insurance companies or other large corporations that are trying to protect their bottom line rather than accept responsibility for wrong doing. With our attorneys in their corner, victims of catastrophic injuries are prepared to go up against any opponent.

Construction site accidents

Construction is typically ranked as one of the most dangerous jobs each year. If you are a construction worker and have been catastrophically injured, our construction site accident lawyers will help you understand your rights and make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.

In addition to company employees, independent contractors, subcontractors, and civilian contractors are also eligible for compensation if they are injured on a work site.

The most common types of construction site accidents for both employees and contractors involve falling objects or workers falling from elevated heights. Many other injuries result from accidents with trucks, cranes, and forklifts. Workplace equipment and machinery can also cause serious injuries, as can electrocution, fire, explosions, and exposure to harmful substances and unsafe environments.
