The Experienced Representation You Need After A Catastrophic Injury
At Haberkorn & Associates, we are dedicated to helping injury victims of all kinds, but our attorney is especially experienced in litigating catastrophic injury cases. A catastrophic injury is one that greatly limits a person’s daily activities and may take months or years to recover from – if full recovery is even possible. It often means significant and ongoing medical treatment and will likely require environmental adaptations and other accommodations.
If you or a loved one have suffered a catastrophic injury as the result of another’s negligence, our firm is ready to provide the aggressive legal advocacy you deserve. Attorney Matthew Haberkorn offers more than three decades of legal experience, and our firm has a strong track record of success on behalf of clients, both in and out of the courtroom.
Examples Of Injuries Considered Catastrophic
Mr. Haberkorn has represented victims suffering from a wide range of life-changing injuries, including:
- Severe traumatic brain injuries
- Extensive burns covering significant portions of the body
- Spinal cord injuries that limit mobility or result in paralysis
- Lost limbs and injuries requiring amputation
- Significant organ damage
Catastrophic injuries may also be those greatly limit one’s future opportunities, like the inability to walk or the loss of sexual/reproductive function.
Seeking Full And Fair Compensation For A Lifetime Of Costs
You may be filled with questions and worries right now. How will you provide for your family if you can’t work? How can you afford astronomical medical bills? What if life is never the same again? These are the fears that Mr. Haberkorn wants to help you address.
Our firm will seek maximum damages on your behalf to compensate you for:
- Current and future medical bills
- Lost wages from time spent unable to work
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced enjoyment of life
- Adaptive costs associated with permanent disability
Insurance companies have a role to play in most types of accidents resulting in catastrophic injury. As a former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Haberkorn understands the tactics insurers use to deny or limit claims, and he will work tirelessly to overcome these roadblocks in order help you claim the funds you need and deserve.
Legal And Personal Support For Families Who Have Lost A Loved One
Sadly, many catastrophic injuries prove to be fatal. If you’ve lost someone you love in a preventable act of negligence, Haberkorn & Associates would be honored to help you pursue a wrongful death claim against the at-fault parties.
Wrongful death claims commonly arise from the same types of accidents that lead to personal injury lawsuits, including medical negligence, slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites and animal attacks, and other accidents on unsafe premises. You can also pursue wrongful death claims for intentional acts of lethal violence.
Compensation For Wrongful Death Plaintiffs
The damages available in wrongful death cases include those already mentioned above. But families can also seek compensation for funeral and burial expenses as well as noneconomic damages like loss of the victim’s love and companionship.
Matthew Haberkorn is a family man as well as an attorney. He understands that although no amount of money can replace who you’ve lost, the financial costs of losing a loved one are both real and overwhelming. He will fight to ensure that you receive the financial support you need and deserve.
