Serious Injury

Helping You Recover Financial Compensation in Syracuse

In some accidents, people are hurt and their injuries eventually heal. But other times, people suffer injuries from which they never recover. These serious injuries-also known as catastrophic injuries-have a lifelong impact on victims. The personal injury attorneys at Cherundolo Law Firm, PLLC help the injured recover the financial compensation they need and deserve to rebuild their lives.

People with catastrophic injuries are left unable to work or take part in their usual activities. They often require additional medical treatment throughout their lives, and may also need home modification and home health aides. They are also often left unable to work.

Examples of serious or catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI). Any type of impact to the head can result in an injury to the brain. People with serious TBI can suffer seizures or paralysis. Many experience personality changes, hearing loss, vision loss, or cognitive or learning deficits.
  • Spinal cord injuries. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that carries signals from the brain to control movement. Depending on the severity, an injury to the spinal cord can cause weakness or paralysis.
  • Severe burns. Third-degree burns go through the skin and affect deeper tissues. They are painful and require long-term treatment and rehabilitation.
