Louisiana and Mississippi Brain, Neck, Back, and Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

A catastrophic injury is one which has serious and long-term effects on a victim. Catastrophic injuries may leave a person with a permanent disability, and may even result in shortened life expectancies. For example, neck, back, and spinal cord injuries might result in permanent paralysis, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. A brain injury or amputation injury can similarly have a devastating impact on the lives of victims and their families.

A Firm Prepared to Handle Catastrophic Injury Cases

A case involving a life altering spinal cord or brain injury obviously requires a lawyer fluent with the complex medical issues involved in these cases. The Bowling Law Firm's practice in the field of medical malpractice therefore complements its ability to navigate the medical issues involving the most serious forms of personal injury cases.

In addition to the physical and emotional effects of a serious injury, catastrophic injuries can have enormous financial impacts on victims and their families as a result of expensive rehabilitation and medical bills which will last over the course of a victim's lifetime. Additionally, the victim's family may incur expenses related to home modifications, vehicle conversions, and personal care attendant needs. At the same time, catastrophic injuries can prevent the victim from earning any income. Catastrophic injury lawyers need to work with experts in fields such as life care planning, life expectancy projection, vocational rehabilitation, neuropsychology and economics.  The Bowling Law Firm has extensively worked with experts in these fields.

The firm's attorneys have handled numerous cases involving brain, spinal cord, amputation, and other catastrophic injuries. The firm has extensive experience seeking compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and other damages associated with catastrophic injuries.
