What are catastrophic injuries?
Every injury to a person is terrible, but certain injuries are so life changing as to be properly called catastrophic. Examples of catastrophic injuries include: spinal cord injuries, paralysis, brain injuries, closed head injuries, herniated discs, bulging discs, amputations, and blindness.
How are Catastophic Injury Cases Different than most other cases?
Catastrophic injury cases are very expert intensive cases. You need to have the injured person evaluated by doctors, economists, rehabilitation and employment experts to properly assess the physical, emotional and economic loss to negligence. You need lawyers who have experience working with highly qualified expert witnesses and who can give you the best chance to win your case. Our lawyers at Preston Law who have been successfully handling catastrophic injury for almost twenty years will speak to you about your rights for free in a no obligation consultation.
Does it cost anything for me to speak with your firm?
At Preston Law, we only get paid if you get paid. We work on a contingent fee basis that explicitly states that you owe us nothing for attorney’s fees if we don’t collect for you. Hiring a lawyer is a personal decision, but at Preston Law we have a team of four lawyers and a large office staff of experienced legal professionals. Our goal is always to recover the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries through trial or the settlement process. Unlike some law firms, if the insurance company will not offer you a reasonable settlement, we will take them to court and have a jury decide your case. We practice throughout all of Missouri, but our office is located in Springfield, Missouri. We regularly handle cases in the surrounding areas including: Ozark, Nixa, Branson, Joplin, Monett, Neosho, Bolivar, Camden, Nevada, Lamar, Lebanon and Mount Vernon.
We only get paid if you get paid and we charge nothing to meet with you to discuss your case. If you have been injured in any type of accident resulting in serious injury, please contact our Springfield Mo injury lawyers at Preston Law for a no obligation appointment with one of our experienced lawyers. Our office phone number is (417) 616-5000 or toll free at (866) 953-6736. You can also contact us online with the form provided on the sidebar of this page.
