    Catastrophic Spinal Injuries

    Here are the serious spinal injuries that many of our clients suffer:

    • Brain Injuries
      If you suffer a TBI, you may sustain cognitive deficits or personality changes. Other victims are depressed and anxious.
    • Spinal Cord Injuries
      The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that control body movement. If you damage your spinal cord, you may suffer paralysis. Many spinal cord injury victims lose control of their bladders or bowels. If you’re paralyzed after an accident, contact an Atlanta catastrophic injury lawyer ASAP.
    • Neck & Whiplash Injuries
      Whiplash (a.k.a. “neck strain”) is a common car accident injury. If your strain is moderate, it may heal through rest, physical therapy, and pain meds. Other neck injuries include disc injuries, pinched nerves, or bone breaks.
    • Back Injuries
      Most injury victims suffer minor back strains. However, some victims also suffer fractured vertebrae and herniated discs. Back injuries are often very painful. For instance, some back injury victims suffer sleeplessness. Others are unable to work for an long time. Also, some back injury victims are permanently impaired.
    • Sprains & Strain Injuries
      Accidents often cause soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries include muscle, ligament and tendon strains and sprains (a.k.a. “overstretching”). Most strain and strain (“overstretching”) injuries are temporary. However, torn soft tissues require surgery and physical rehab. Some victims might regain full function. Others are impaired for life.
    • Other Catastrophic Injuries

    • Broken Bone Injuries
      Many accidents cause bone fractures. Simple fractures quickly heal. However, complex fractures often require surgery. After surgery, you’ll undergo physical rehab. After you’ve healed, you still might be disabled. Also, if the bone pierced your skin, you may suffer a deadly infection.
    • Amputation Injuries
      Severed limb injuries are rare, but harmful. Sometimes, surgeons may re-attach fingers and toes. However, most severed limbs are permanent.
    • Burn Injuries
      Burn injuries are often caused by chemicals, electricity, fire, and heat. First-degree burns are mild. Second-degree burns are moderate. Third-degree burns are often deadly. If you suffer third-degree burns, you may need skin grafts to repair your wounds. Also, you might need to undergo scar repair surgery. Contact an Atlanta injury lawyer to learn how you can recover burn injury damages.
    • Vision & Hearing Loss
      Some accident victims suffer hearing and vision injuries. For instance, if you’re exposed to harmful chemicals you may burn your eyes. Also, a loud workplace blast may damage your hearing. Rehab providers help injury victims recover some of their deficits. However, some hearing and vision injuries are permanent. Those injury victims require job training.
    • Polytrauma
      Accidents rarely cause isolated injuries. In fact, serious accidents often cause multiple traumas. When you suffer polytrauma, you’ll suffer immensely. Also, you have to undergo extensive medical treatment.
    • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
      Many victims suffer PTSD after a serious injury. PTSD causes many different symptoms. For instance, some victims suffer severe anxiety. Other victims suffer impulse control and anger issues. Talk therapy and medicine help PTSD victims recover from their injuries.

    Catastrophic Injury Damages

    Many serious injury victims recover large settlements and court awards. However, each case is unique. First, our Atlanta catastrophic injury lawyers will determine who caused the accident. Next, we’ll calculate your economic damages. Your economic damages include your:

    • Medical bills
    • Lost wages
    • Potential future medical costs
    • Diminished earning capacity

    Next, we’ll evaluate your non-economic injuries. They include your physical pain and your mental suffering. They also include the value of your disfigurement and/or disability. Once we determine how much your case is worth, we’ll send a demand letter to the insurance adjuster. If they don’t pay you what you deserve, we’ll take them to trial.

    Catastrophic Child Injuries

    Children are resilient. In fact, many children fully recover from their injuries. However, some children are permanently injured or disfigured. Their peers may ostracize them which can cause immense psychological distress.

    At Graham Scofield Injury Lawyers, we’ll help ease your child’s suffering. We’ve successfully resolved many child injury claims. We look forward to helping your child, as well.

    "When I felt all hope was lost, I contacted Graham Scofield to see if he could represent me. He immediately called me back and thoroughly reviewed with me the case. He was the most patient, kind, sympathetic and the upmost professional attorney throughout the entire process. He was also extremely knowledgeable about the law and was creative when the case worked through the twists and turns. He was also a heck of a fighter for me and got me more settlement than I was expecting. I only wish I called him sooner! Thank you so much Graham, you are an amazing lawyer!!"
