Catastrophic injuries often have life-altering consequences for the person injured and his or her family. That is why it is vital to get the full compensation available under the law from those responsible for the injury.

The Louisiana accident attorneys at Mansfield Melancon help people who have suffered a wide range of injuries get back on their feet after an accident by getting them the money that they deserve. We are seasoned attorneys with a track record of success in the courtroom and at the negotiating table.

At Mansfield Melancon, we understand that no amount of financial compensation can make a person whole after a catastrophic injury. We work tirelessly, however, to ensure that clients can focus on their physical and mental recovery without having to worry about the financial implications.

Our attorneys take pride in our personalized approach to legal representation. We take the time to understand our clients’ unique individual situations and tailor a strategy to meet their specific needs. We also make ourselves directly available to the people we represent 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You will not have to navigate through a tangled web of administrative assistants, case managers and paralegals to speak with your lawyer at our firm.

Common Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries come in a number of shapes and sizes. The common denominator is that these types of accidents cause serious physical damage that is often long-lasting. Some of the catastrophic injuries that we commonly see include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Vision loss
  • Burn injuries

Regardless of the type of impairment, a serious injury can severely limit a person’s day-to-day activities, including the ability to make money and provide for a family.

Compensation For Your Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can happen in a wide variety of ways, from a multi-car accident on a busy highway to a platform accident on an oil & gas offshore rig, or even an explosion at a plant.

A person who is injured in these and other types of accidents in Louisiana has the right to seek compensation from those responsible. That may be a store owner who allows the premises to become unsafe or a negligent driver who causes a crash.

The money damages available in these cases typically include compensation for current and future medical bills, lost wages or any reduction in earning capacity caused by the injuries. Additional compensation is often available for pain, suffering and emotional distress, including that related to a person’s inability to enjoy common daily activities.
