What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic or personal injury is any injury that leads to long-term damage. Incurring this kind of injury can prevent you from working, require extensive ongoing medical care, and result in a severe financial burden for your whole family. Lost wages, medical bills, and rehabilitation costs add up quickly, and you shouldn't be responsible for paying them.

Examples of a catastrophic or personal injury can include:

If your loved one didn't survive their injury, you may qualify for a wrongful death lawsuit instead. A wrongful death case allows our legal team to pursue compensation that makes up for lost wages, funeral expenses, and other losses.

Your Case Is a Top Priority FOR OUR LAW FIRM IN LAFAYETTE

Our personal injury lawyers take on a limited number of clients, so we can ensure that each case gets the attention and preparation necessary to result in the best outcome. Upon hiring us, we will get to work on your case immediately.

Filing a Lawsuit
Without a Lawyer
CAN RESULT IN A BAD OUTCOME

Courtroom

Our Lafayette personal injury lawyers understand each stage of the court process, know what a client is able to claim, and have experience going to trial. The average person isn't expected to know how the legal process works, and if you go to trial without a personal injury lawyer, you may be giving the defense an advantage.

Not only do you stand a better chance in court with one of our Lafayette attorneys, but hiring a lawyer after an injury that has been catastrophic can save you time and lower your stress levels when you should be focused on your recovery. The Law Offices of Richard R. Kennedy can help secure fair compensation from the liable party and the insurance companies.

How Can I Afford a
Personal Injury Attorney?

Our office can provide you with a free initial consultation. During this consultation, you can explain how you've been injured and discuss any financial hardship your injury has caused. We can then decide if you have a case.

We also work on a contingency basis, meaning our fee is a reasonable percentage of your eventual verdict or settlement. We will never collect this fee until we have secured compensation.

You could initially save money by representing yourself in court, but our lawyers know what they can do to secure the highest possible payout, and increase your chances of long-term financial stability, recovery, and success.

Honest, straight forward attorney that explained everything about the legal process concerning my case. I never felt pressured to accept any offer that was made on my case, I was allowed to decide what I would accept. If I ever needed an attorney again, he would be the one I would choose. I trust him so much I have recommended him to others that I know.
