Prescott Catastrophic Injury Attorney
After a traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury or other type of catastrophic injury, taking legal action may be the last thing on your mind. However, if the accident was caused by another’s carelessness, you may be eligible to seek compensation for physical, financial and emotional damages.
The experienced attorneys at Phillips Law Group have decades of experience helping tens of thousands of injury victims obtain compensation. This includes millions in compensation for victims of catastrophic injuries, including $7.65 million for a motorcycle crash victim who suffered a traumatic brain injury and $4 million for an auto accident victim who suffered paralysis.
Our founding partner Jeff Phillips is a Leaders Forum member of the American Association for Justice and a premiere member of the American Academy of Trial Attorneys.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss your claim during a free and confidential consultation. We work on a contingency fee basis, so there are no upfront costs or attorneys’ fees. We only get paid if we help you obtain compensation.
Am I Eligible to File a Catastrophic Injury Case?
Determining if you are eligible to pursue compensation is difficult without knowing the specifics of your claim. When you contact our firm for your free consultation, you can discuss what happened with one of our licensed attorneys and whether you may be able to file a claim for compensation.
Generally, accident victims and their attorneys must prove the four elements of negligence to have a valid claim for compensation. These elements include:
Duty of Care
The at-fault party had a legal obligation to act in a reasonable manner to prevent harm to you and others. For example, a driver has an obligation to properly follow traffic signs and signals to keep others on the road safe.
Breach of Duty of Care
The at-fault party failed to uphold his or her legal obligation by acting in a negligent or careless manner. Generally, another person in a similar situation would have acted differently to prevent harm to others. An example of the breach of duty of care could be running a red light or driving under the influence of alcohol.
The breach of duty of care must be the reason you suffered an injury. Your attorney must provide evidence establishing a direct connection between your injury and the at-fault party’s negligence.
The breach of duty of care must have resulted in an injury that created damages. These could include monetary losses like medical bills, lost wages or emotional/psychological damage, like pain and suffering.
If our lawyers can prove the four elements of negligence were present in your accident, you may have a valid case.

What is the Value of My Case?
Each catastrophic case is different, and the value of a potential case may vary based on the severity of the injuries, the circumstances that caused the accident, and how the injuries affect the victim, financially, emotionally and physically.
If you have a case, you may be eligible to seek economic and noneconomic damages.
These are the financial losses you experienced as a result of the accident. These damages may be ongoing depending on the severity of your injury. They may include:
- Past, current and future medical expenses
- Medical assistive equipment
- Prescriptions for pain and other problems caused by your injury
- Cost of emergency care
- Ambulance ride
- Lost wages from the inability to work
- Loss of earning capacity
- Physical therapy
- Rehabilitation costs
- Funeral and burial costs
These types of losses are the emotional and psychological trauma you experienced in the aftermath of the accident:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Severe scarring
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of enjoyment of life
