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.*
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)
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.*

Prompt, thorough, understanding and knowledgeable, are only a few of the adjectives that describe Jetton & Meredith. Fabulous lawyers, highly recommend for any family law cases!!- Former Client
Eric Meredith represented me during what turned out to be a lengthy divorce settlement. During the first meeting, he fully explained the process ahead and answered all my questions and concerns. I still remember the feeling of relief after that meeting knowing I had a true professional in my corner. Eric, along with his Paralegal Julie, kept me updated along the way and were quick to respond with any additional issues. Not only did he call with any updates to the case, he also would ask how I was doing. I cannot recommend Eric at Jetton & Meredith enough.- Tim
I highly recommend Mark. I hired him to handle a simple assault charge that was filed against me. Mark handled it professionally and expeditiously. He explained each step in the process, and everything happened just as he described. He is exactly the type of lawyer you want representing you.- J&M Client
Great service and very personal. Jetton & Meredith are very hardworking attorneys. I will recommend Jetton & Meredith to anyone in need.- Former Client
I cannot stress enough how great the customer service was with Jetton & Meredith, with my case being a little more complicated I had the opportunity to work with both Mr. Jetton and Mr. Meredith. I can say they know their stuff, Mr. Jetton was able to get my case dismissed the first time we went to court, no questions asked. Working with Mr. Meredith was a longer process but he walked me through the steps and gave me realistic expectations of an outcome that he was able to provide just as he stated he would do. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision to hire Jetton & Meredith as my attorneys, and I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of an attorney!- Former Client
This law office far exceeded my expectations. All options and possible outcomes were set before me from the start and everything was handled in a professional and timely manner. Not only will I use this law firm again, but I would also and have already recommended them to the people I care most for. Thank you for all you’ve done.- Former Client
