Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries change people’s lives, with many struggling to work, to maintain relationships, and even enjoy life as they did before their accident. Justice demands those responsible pay.
Each catastrophic injury is unique, results in long-term or permanent disabilities and presents its own set of challenges.

MLG is uniquely positioned to protect your rights as a victim who has suffered a catastrophic injury due to another’s recklessness, carelessness or misconduct. Every case is both critical and complex and requires medical, legal, biomechanical, engineering, pyschological and financial expertize as well as a meticulous attention to detail. Experts include:

  • Accident reconstruction experts and mechanical engineers may be necessary when the facts of a car crash are in dispute.
  • Human factors experts give opinions regarding physical reactions in particular environments, such as a perceived danger leading to a car wreck.
  • Experts in product design, labeling and engineering may be useful in a product liability case which resulted in catastrophic injury.
  • Medical experts testify about the plaintiff’s diagnosis, prognosis, reasonableness and necessity of the past, present and future medical care.
  • Biomechanical or biomedical engineer(s) testify about the mechanical laws relating to the movement of the body and their relevance to the case.

All of this gets expensive. You need a law firm with the breath and depth of experience as well as the financial resources to support an often lengthy and arduous legal battle on your behalf. Your life has likely been irrevocally changed by your accident; we seek to recover that which will lesson your pain and support you for the long journey ahead.

On Life Support Due to Defect

Our client sustained heart damage, diminished lung capacity and mobility as well as a worsened diabetic condition all due to a failed recall repair! Here’s what happened. Traveling across the desert with his daughter, the car stalled for several hours and he was unable to eat or take his diabetes medication until the next day. The stall was part of a repetitive pattern so prior to this trip, repair techs assured them everything was ok – it was NOT!

Going so long without food, water, and his medicine resulted in Victor’s body shutting down and having to be rushed to the hospital. Victor was placed on life support and medical professionals told Shannon they expected Victor would likely pass away within a day or so. After intensive medical attention, which lasted several weeks, Victor finally survived the ordeal but with a greatly diminished quality of life and health.

Final Outcome

Victor’s case illustrates how a recall can have ripple effects that may result in catastrophic injury or even wrongful death. For Victor, a jury found Hyundai liable for the defect that wrecked so much pain and suffering. True to our conviction to never, never, never give up, we are continuing the fight for justice against Hyundai and all auto manufacturers who put profit over public safety.
