Catastrophic injuries include any severe injury to the spine, spinal cord or brain that result in wrongful death or permanently prevent an individual from dealing with life’s daily tasks and/or performing any gainful work. These life-changing injuries require a skilled personal injury lawyer to pursue a settlement on behalf of the injured individual and/or their family.
A head injury (a.k.a. closed head trauma or traumatic brain injury) is any head trauma that involves skull, brain or scalp injury. There are many causes of brain injuries including car accidents, work injuries, falls, and construction site injuries. Head injuries are scary and while some are minor, many require hospitalization and potentially lifelong medical care. Our office has represented numerous clients who suffered a wide range of brain injuries including concussions, contusions, penetrating injuries and anoxic injuries. We work with doctors and other experts to assure that our clients receive the best possible medical care and we gather all the information necessary to obtain the maximum award for our clients.
Products liability cases occur when people are injured by products that are designed unsafely or fail to work properly. These cases can happen anywhere — at home, on construction sites or in a public place. Defective product claims can involve household products such as toys or furniture as well as other products like automobiles, guns, industrial machinery and equipment, farm machinery, aviation products and medical devices, to name a few.
While products liability litigation is complex, our team has successfully represented many people seriously injured or killed by defectively-designed products. In addition, we understand that some products liability and construction injury cases require special attention and, in those cases, we partner with other attorneys and law firms (at no additional charge to his clients) to assemble the best legal team to represent our clients.
Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death claims occur when a person dies because of another person or company’s fault or negligence. Wrongful death claims can arise from any type of accident including car accidents, construction accidents or even a bad slip and fall. When a person dies due to another’s negligence, the family or heirs can file a wrongful death claim against the people and/or companies at fault to purse damages for the harm caused.
At the Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC, we work closely with our clients to investigate who was at fault for the death and evaluate all of the damages you have suffered including medical expenses, end of life expenses, projected future income losses, projected losses of future financial contributions such as mortgage and tuition and the value of the loss of a loved one.
