Tucson Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Some injuries are so severe the victim may never be the same. These injuries can create significant physical and emotional challenges for victims, in addition to the financial costs for treatment and management of symptoms.
At Phillips Law Group, our skilled lawyers have nearly 30 years of experience and have recovered more than $750 million in damages for the injured clients we have represented, including $4 million for a victim who was paralyzed in a car accident and more than $7 million for a client who suffered a skull fracture and brain injury in a motorcycle crash.
While compensation cannot change what happened, it can help to ensure victims get the medical care they need and can handle the other financial challenges created by a catastrophic injury.
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you can contact us for a free consultation to review the circumstances of your accident and discuss your legal options. There is no obligation if you do not want to pursue a claim, but if you do, we do not charge you any money unless we are successful in obtaining compensation for you.

Do I Have a Valid Case?
It is difficult to give an accurate answer without knowing the details of any specific accident, which is why it is generally recommended that you meet with an experienced personal injury lawyer who understands the complexity of a catastrophic injury claim.
In any personal injury case, your attorney must prove these four elements to establish that someone’s negligence caused your accident and resulting injuries:
- Duty of care – The at-fault party owed you a duty of care to use reasonable care to prevent harm.
- Breach of duty of care – When a duty of care is ignored – or breached - the party responsible for your accident may be held liable for your injuries and other damages.
- Causal link– Your attorney must prove that you would not have been hurt if the defendant had upheld his or her duty of care.
- Injury damages – You must have suffered damages as a result of the injury.

What Types of Compensation Am I Eligible For?
This is an issue you can discuss with your attorney. There are many factors that help determine the value of an injury claim, including the length of your treatment and recovery, lifelong consequences from your injury, missed time from work, and emotional and psychological issues.
Some of the damages that may be available in an injury claim include:
- Past, present and future medical expenses
- Permanent disability assistance
- Ongoing surgical interventions required for recovery or improvement
- Caregiver expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Costs of rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Property damage
