Life-altering injuries affect a person in many different ways, all of which can be difficult to cope with and recover from. Financially, your injury may require a lifetime of expensive medical care. Dealing with the trauma of the injury and the physical pain can also be extremely challenging. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury as the result of a negligent accident, you can turn to the lawyers at The Cartwright Law Firm for help.

Catastrophic injuries such as burns, spinal cord injuries and amputations directly impact the victim’s ability to complete day-to-day activities. An amputation can prevent you from returning to work and providing for your family. Amputation/loss of use victims often struggle with physical pain known as “phantom pains,” as well as emotional and psychological trauma. We have represented people suffering from amputations as the result of:
Amputations also require the need for prosthetic devices to replace the missing limb. Most insurance companies try to restrict both the kinds of prosthetics available to victims and the number of replacement prosthetics an individual may require over the course of his or her life. We at The Cartwright Law Firm make sure to include this issue in all dealings with insurance companies that are liable for the cost of your injuries.
We represented an individual who suffered a foot injury after stepping on a submerged snap tie at a sulfur prilling plant. Given the nature of the injuries and the fact that our client was diabetic, the injury resulted in a likelihood of a leg amputation from the knee down. We were able to recover $1.35 million in a settlement for our client.
You can count on the lawyers at our firm to represent your interests. We will work to maximize your settlement so you have the financial compensation you need to move forward after the injury. Before settling with the insurance company, contact our lawyers.
