Charlotte Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Catastrophic Injury Classifications in North Carolina

Typically catastrophic injuries are classified in three categories: physical, spinal, and cognitive injuries. Personal injury cases involving life-changing injuries require attorneys with a special set of skills and relevant experience.

You will want an attorney who:

  • Has the investigative abilities to try to establish the liability of the responsible party or parties
  • Has access to physicians and specialists who can provide insights into the medical needs of severely injured people
  • Can understand the suffering of their clients and the burdens they face
  • Is a skilled advocate who can present persuasive arguments in settlement negotiations or the courtroom

    Jetton & Meredith has these abilities, skills, and resources. As a dynamic team of attorneys for the injured, we provide results-oriented representation to clients throughout the state of North Carolina, seeking favorable results in every case we handle.*

    We invite you to contact us online or call (704) 931-5535 to request a free initial consultation.

    What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

    A catastrophic injury is generally considered to be an injury that severely impacts the victim and results in long-term pain, disability, or incapacity.

    We represent people who have suffered these types of catastrophic injuries:

    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
    • Concussions
    • Burns
    • Amputations
    • Blindness

      At Jetton & Meredith, our Charlotte catastrophic injury attorneys help our clients seek the financial compensation needed for medical care, physical therapy, and other needs. We work closely with medical specialists at Duke University Medical Center, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Carolinas Medical Center, and other hospitals to understand the medical needs of our clients. In your case, we will seek maximum compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.*

      Developing a Comprehensive Life-Care Plan

      A person who has suffered a catastrophic injury, such as a spinal cord injury or TBI, will have medical needs for the rest of his or her life. In addition, family members may need to provide personal services and ongoing care for the injured person.

      To help accident victims better handle these burdens, we retain the services of a life-care planner. This medical professional can develop a comprehensive outline that describes all of the medical care, rehabilitation services, and personal services the injured person will need. In a case involving a severe spinal cord injury, for example, the plan could specify the need for a van that can accommodate a wheelchair, alterations to the family home, or residence in a long-term care facility.

      Jetton & Meredith then works diligently to try to obtain the funds that can pay for these needs, as well as full compensation for all other losses.*
