Top Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Georgia
Securing fair and full compensation for people devastated by profound, life-altering injuries
What is a catastrophic injury?
A catastrophic injury is a profound, life-altering injury that impacts everything of value in a person’s life. Catastrophic injuries can prevent someone from holding down a job, taking care of their spouse or children, and even performing the activities of daily living most of us take for granted – such as bathing, dressing ourselves, or cleaning our home.
At Bell Law Firm, our team of experts specializes in handling the most complex legal cases, which tend to be medical malpractice cases. In addition to medical malpractice, we also handle other cases where negligence leads to catastrophic injuries, such as trucking accidents, severe injuries from premises liability, industrial accidents, negligent security, and other types of negligence that lead to catastrophic injury. We help victims and their families obtain fair and full compensation to offset the burdens they face due to the profound and lasting impacts of catastrophic injury.

What should I expect if I start a catastrophic injury case?
No one wants to be a victim of a life-altering, long-lasting injury. After working with hundreds of clients, we know there is often hesitation to take legal action and sue another person. The legal process can feel intimidating and drawn out. However, if you’ve found yourself in a situation where you need to consider a personal injury lawsuit for your catastrophic injury, we hope this rough timeline gives you a better picture of what to expect and how your case can potentially be resolved.
Find the right representation for you or your family. You need to work with someone with a record of success with catastrophic injury cases.
Obtain your medical records and healthcare bills. One of the first things your attorney will likely ask is about your sustained injuries and the circumstances that led to the catastrophic injury.
Once the lawsuit and essential paperwork are filed, discovery begins. This is the process of determining what the adversary’s legal claims and defenses are. Depositions are taken for all relevant parties and witnesses.
Mediation and negotiation can occur after the discovery period ends. Sometimes, the plaintiff and defendant attorneys can settle a case by discussing it amongst themselves. Other times, mediation is required.
Lastly, if mediation doesn’t work for your case, it moves forward for trial. At this stage, your attorney will present the intricate facts of the catastrophic injury case before a jury to secure a favorable verdict.
