Helping Catastrophic Injury Victims Get Full & Fair Compensation: Evaluating Both the Current & Future Cost of Your Injuries

- Current medical costs, including emergency room costs, surgeries, prescription drug costs and more
- Your future medical care
- Physical therapy
- Vocational/occupational therapy
- Long-term care
- The cost of in-home care and in-home modifications
- The cost of medical devices
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life for your family
- Emotional distress, including the cost of counseling for you and your family
- And more
