Catastrophic Injury Lawsuits Require Extensive Resources And The Ability To Go To Trial

Some injuries change lives forever, not only for the injured party, but for his or her family as well. When this type of injury is caused by the negligence of someone else, it is critical to work with an experienced personal injury lawyer who knows how to properly value these complex cases and who also has the extensive resources necessary to pursue a full recovery on your behalf.

The Law Office of Christopher G. Lewis, P.A., is that kind of firm. I will aggressively work to maximize the amount you recover if you suffer a catastrophic injury in an accident that is caused by someone else. This includes:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Quadriplegia or paraplegia
  • Blindness
  • Severe burns resulting in permanent scarring
  • Amputation

There Are No Open-And-Shut Cases — You Need An Experienced Attorney

Individuals who suffer catastrophic injuries often are surprised to discover how aggressively insurance companies fight to minimize the claim or deny it altogether. Fault for your accident may seem obvious, but insurance companies are in the business of protecting their own bottom line. I know — I worked for an insurance defense firm for a number of years before founding my own firm and representing injured parties.

Not every lawyer feels comfortable prosecuting high-value personal injury claims. I welcome referrals from other attorneys or the opportunity to assist you with a personal injury case involving catastrophic injuries.

Experience is necessary to build the strongest possible case. I work with an extensive network of highly regarded medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists and life-care planners who are able to provide key facts to support my clients' claims.

I understand how to properly value these cases, not only to recover current and future expenses, but also to compensate for physical and emotional pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and loss of consortium. In some cases, a spouse or other family member can recover damages as well.

I'm Always Prepared To Go To Trial

You may have heard that most personal injury lawsuits are resolved without the need to litigate. While that is true, it is essential that the lawyer who represents you is recognized as an effective trial attorney who is prepared to go to court if a fair agreement cannot be reached through negotiation. Insurance company representatives in North Carolina know I am trial-tested and always prepared to litigate.

If you or someone in your family has suffered a catastrophic injury due to someone else's negligence, contact me to schedule a free consultation. There are no upfront costs and you will only pay an attorney fee if I recover a financial settlement or judgment for you.
