Catastrophes, by definition, are momentous events that cause sudden tragedies and large-scale changes. A “catastrophic” injury is more than a just legal label; it’s a distinction which speaks to how much those injuries alter lives. From long-term limitations to life-long impairment, catastrophic injuries have truly devastating consequences – and they make for highly complex and high-stakes cases.

We know how catastrophic injuries change lives, create unimaginable costs, and cause incalculable losses for victims and their families.

As a firm comprised of compassionate and highly capable trial lawyers, Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn represents victims and families whose lives have been profoundly impacted by serious injuries that could and should have been prevented. Though every case is unique, our team is available to assist clients with potential claims involving all types of catastrophic injuries, including:
Catastrophic injuries aren’t defined by pain or where they took place. They’re defined by how substantially they alter the lives of victims and their families. While there are many measurable damages, including the expenses and economic losses families incur, catastrophic injuries are most strongly associated with profound emotional suffering, which is less intangible than physical harm or medical bill.
Though it is difficult to put a price on pain and suffering, our attorneys work diligently to discover the true impact catastrophic injuries have on our clients, and fight aggressively to obtain the financial recoveries they deserve. What value your claim has is dependent on the individual facts and circumstances involved, but victims are generally entitled to a recovery of the economic and non-economic damages which directly arise from their injuries. These may include:
Though seriously injured victims have the right to recover damages by pursuing civil claims, compensation is never guaranteed. As claimants, victims must meet high standards for proving fault and liability, and be able to effectively navigate and neutralize the many efforts defendants make in their reluctance to pay what victims rightfully deserve. In most cases, they must also combat powerful corporations and insurance companies that leverage their resources to protect their bottom line.
As legal advocates, our attorneys are passionate about helping clients overcome these obstacles, handling complex legal work, investigations, collaboration with experts, and other aspects of their cases while they focus on recovering and repairing their lives. Our resources, experience, and considerable knowledge in a range of difficult personal injury cases – from car accidents and claims against property owners to medical malpractice and product liability – allow us to level the playing field for our clients, and position them to seek the most compensation possible.
Rouda Feder Tietjen & McGuinn is driven by the passion of attorneys and advocates who care about the work they do, and the results they’re able to secure for clients.
