Catastrophic Injuries

Suffering personal injuries due to the reckless or careless conduct of another person is frustrating. However, when an accident causes catastrophic injuries that affect a victim’s entire life, that is simply unfair. Individuals who suffer a catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another person may no longer be able to maintain the same employment to support themselves and their families. All the while, these victims will be accumulating high medical bills, which they cannot pay due to the inability to work. Insurance companies know how costly catastrophic injuries can be and will do everything in their power to minimize your injuries and shift blame for the accident onto you.

At Schlacter Law, we understand how disabling and difficult it is to suffer catastrophic injuries. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients, including $2,076,758, $1,625,0000, $825,000, $800,000, $790,000, and $775,000 in major personal injury accidents. We make sure that insurance companies do not take advantage of our clients by blaming them for the accident or minimizing their catastrophic injuries. We offer a FREE consultation, and, if we accept your case, we will aggressively pursue your case, which may include hiring industry-leading professionals and experts. There is no risk to ask for our help because we only get paid when we recover compensation for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the common causes of catastrophic personal injuries?

There are many possible causes of catastrophic injuries, but the most common causes of catastrophic injuries include motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle crashes, trucking wrecks, slip and falls or trip and falls, medical malpractice, construction site accidents, and any other personal injuries. Catastrophic injuries are very serious and should be handled by law firms such as Schlacter Law.

How long do I have to file a catastrophic injury claim?

Four years in a motor vehicle accident, including a motorcycle accident, bicycle accident, or trucking accident. Two years for medical malpractice cases, unless the injury was not reasonably discovered, then it is two years from the date the injury or malpractice should have been discovered.

How much do I have to pay a catastrophic injury lawyer upfront?

At Schlacter Law, you pay nothing upfront. We know that catastrophic injuries are debilitating and result in high medical bills while being out of work. We do not ask for any money upfront and use a contingency fee agreement. This means you only pay a percentage of what we recover for you in a settlement or award. If we settle your case before filing a lawsuit, that fee is 33.33%.

He was timely, communicative, and most importantly he didn't quit until he won the case. He has a desire to win like no other attorney I've ever used and values building long lasting relationships. I would highly recommend the Law Offices of Brett L Schlacter for anyone that needs a competent lawyer in Miami.
