Representing Victims of Serious Injuries & Their Loved Ones

Even a minor accident can have disastrous effects on the human body. Ultimately, it does not take a high-speed collision or a fall from a significant height to cause a serious injury.

What Are “Catastrophic Injuries?”

Some injuries are more severe than others. Generally, when an injury has temporary or permanent life-altering effects, it is considered “catastrophic” in nature. Serious or catastrophic injuries are those that affect an individual’s ability to return to his or her normal life before the accident. They may preclude the victim from returning to work or from obtaining any gainful employment whatsoever. Ultimately, these injuries tend to require the most medical care—including ongoing treatment—and have the most lasting financial, physical, and emotional effects on the victim and his or her family.

Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Closed head injuries
  • Amputations
  • Chemical burns
  • Electrical burns
  • Third-degree heat burns

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury or have lost a loved one in wrongful death, it is wise to seek the counsel of an experienced serious injury attorney. We can fight to protect your financial stability while giving you the freedom to recover to a pre-accident state of health.

5 / 5 stars
“I was referred to Woodruff Johnson & Evans by a friend who had used them in the past. Everyone I had contact with was so kind and polite. My lawyer, Jay Johnson, explained the process to me so that I understood what was happening with my case. He was very patient, keeping me informed and answering my questions. I was very satisfied with the results and would recommend my family and friends that need legal help to go to Woodruff Johnson & Evans. “

I’ve had to know a few attorneys in my life and Jon was the best.

Unfortunately, I got badly injured at an athletic job. Run by a company that didn’t care about me. I needed an attorney and Woodruff, Johnson and Evans was recommended to me by a family member. That small gesture ended up being the best legal advice I ever received. Jon Walker defended me and made sure […]
