Virginia Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Helping Secure the Future of Victims of Severe, Life-Altering Injuries

At Breit Cantor Grana Buckner, we represent individuals and the loved ones of those who have suffered severe, life-altering injuries. Our Virginia Beach and Richmond catastrophic injury lawyers understand the immense impact debilitating injuries can have—not only on victims but on their family members and other loved ones as well. The cost of treating a catastrophic injury can easily exceed millions of dollars over the course of a lifetime. We fight tirelessly in our efforts to secure the maximum compensation our clients are owed for their medical expenses, lost income, emotional distress, and other damages.

In a legal sense, catastrophic injuries are those that are so acute in nature, they prohibit the victim from returning to his or her normal life. Catastrophic injuries typically prevent an individual from returning to work or obtaining any form of gainful employment whatsoever.

Catastrophic injuries typically require extensive, ongoing medical care. This can quickly become incredibly expensive, with the total lifetime cost of many catastrophic injuries reaching the million and multi-million dollar range. This often places a severe financial strain on both the injured individual and his or her family. We help you pursue a settlement that will reduce your financial strain, improve your future, and allow you to move forward with your life. Since 1979, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars on behalf of seriously injured Virginians, including more than 150 individual verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more.

Breit Cantor can help you work to recover the compensation you are owed. Contact our Virginia serious injury attorneys at 855-212-8200 for a free consultation. Offices located in Virginia Beach & Richmond. And don’t worry about the legal fees, even after your consultation. Our goal is to support you, so if we don’t secure a settlement for you, you don’t owe us a dime.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

While all injuries can be life-changing, some injuries are so severe, they are considered “catastrophic” in nature. While there is no official definition of a catastrophic injury, what constitutes a catastrophic injury is one that is so debilitating it prevents the victim from returning to his or her normal life and/or prevents the victim from obtaining any gainful employment (whether temporarily or permanently.)

Injuries do not need to be permanent in order to be classified as “catastrophic;” even injuries that temporarily disable the victim or prevent him/her from returning to work or living his/her normal life can be catastrophic.

Other Catastrophic Injury Examples

There are a few injuries that are generally always categorized as “catastrophic,” such as those described above. However, an injury that causes severe, long-term/lifelong disability or disfigurement can be considered a catastrophic injury.

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Amputation
  • Loss of hearing
  • Loss of vision
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back and shoulder injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Broken bones and fractures

If you were catastrophically injured as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, you may be entitled to receive compensation. While financial recovery cannot undo the pain and suffering you and your family have been through, it can help with the cost of immediate and ongoing medical treatment, lost income/wages, lost earning ability, and non-economic damages like physical pain and emotional suffering.

In most cases, you’ll get the best results when working with an attorney who specializes in your injury, such as an amputation injury lawyer in Richmond, VA. Breit Cantor Grana Buckner’s catastrophic injury lawyers have deep expertise and experience with many types of catastrophic injuries along with the complexities of Virginia law. We can help you get the best results possible.


What Do I Need to Know About My Catastrophic Injury?

As a victim of a severe injury, you are in a very difficult situation. It is important to choose a catastrophic injury lawyer who will relentlessly pursue compensation that adequately covers the damages you have faced and are expected to face in the future.

At Breit Cantor, we understand the overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial impact these types of injuries have on victims and their families. While we cannot undo the injuries you or your loved one has suffered, we can help you fight for the fair recovery that will allow you to obtain medical treatment, make up for lost income, and begin the healing process. Your pursuit of full compensation is our number one priority.

We want to pursue the highest compensation that we can get on your behalf. We have earned a number of groundbreaking results, including some of the largest settlements and verdicts in the state.

Understanding Your Rights Under Virginia Law

If you fall under this category and have been injured from another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to reimbursement for the following types of damages:

  • Loss of future income
  • Medical bills & other health expenses
  • Future medical bills
  • Pain & suffering you’ve experienced
  • Punitive damages if the cause was done in a nefarious manner

You have the right to file a claim for compensation. You also have the right to hire an attorney to help you protect your rights. Catastrophic injury claims in Richmond, VA and other areas in Virginia are often highly complex. The lifetime care costs of the injury must be calculated and, in most cases, negligence must be proven. We can help you fight for the just compensation you and your family deserves. We make it our goal to secure the maximum compensation you are owed; we don’t just accept the first lowball settlement from the insurance company.
