Catastrophic Injuries To People, Especially to Seniors
Personal injuries can be devastating at any age. It seems that they hurt our youngest and oldest family members most. People in those age groups often have the most difficulty recovering from injuries.
We have a particularly strong desire to help seniors who have been injured because many of our clients we already care about are seniors. There are many times an injury and the healing involved are more serious for seniors. The results of an injury can take many forms and lead to additional complications in someone older. Many older adults are particularly susceptible to more severe outcomes including traumatic brain injury or whiplash due to cranial thinning, loss of bone density, skull changes, etc. as we age.
For seniors, even a broken bone can lead to problems with their mental, physical health and their recovery. The older adult may have more serious consequences caused by the negligence and that is the responsibility of the party found to be guilty or the defendant.
Our Personal Injury Focus

What you can recover depends on the facts. No two accidents are the same just like no two people are the same, and that can lead to challenges. You might be able to recover:
Economic damages. You may be able to recover economic damages. That could include medical expenses, lost income, vehicle repairs and future and past expenses.
Noneconomic damages. The court often awards damages for pain and suffering. That could include damaged reputations, emotional anguish, humiliation and more.
Punitive damages. Courts often find it necessary to punish a defendant for egregious, negligent acts.
