A catastrophic or traumatic injury will have a lasting emotional and financial impact on the victim, as well as the supporting family members. If a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, you may be feeling the lifelong effects it will have on you and your family. An experienced attorney may be the only means you will have to recover the full and fair compensation you will need for a lifetime of care.

Since 1971, the Queens personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm have been helping injured New Yorkers seek justice. We build on our years of collective experience to fight for our clients and their right to seek compensation and damages for the catastrophic injuries they have sustained.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are differentiated from less serious injuries in that they usually result in lasting damage to the victim, and can significantly alter the victim’s standard of life accordingly. A catastrophic injury may result in a person experiencing some or all of the following symptoms:

  • Partial or full immobility
  • The complete loss of a bodily function or major body system
  • Extended hospitalization and treatment
  • Reduced life expectancy
  • Life threatening surgery
  • Physical therapy sessions that can last for years or even a lifetime

Catastrophic injuries are the leading cause of death in Americans of all age groups. These types of injuries can occur in a variety of accidents, including:

  • Car accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle and motorcycle accidents
  • Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Work-related accidents
  • Fires and explosions
  • Aviation accidents
  • Some cases of medical malpractice

If you or a loved one has sustained catastrophic injuries in an accident that was caused by the negligent actions of another party, you may be entitled to considerable financial damages. Our lawyers have the knowledge and resources to help you get the compensation that you deserve.

Common Catastrophic Injuries

There are many different types of injuries that can be sustained during an accident, most of which can result in extreme pain and suffering. Below is a list of some of the catastrophic injuries that are most often handled by our personal injury lawyers:
