Catastrophic Injuries

Speak With a Personal Injury Attorney in Cedar Rapids, IA

Helping Iowans recover damages from serious injuries
The Iowa accident lawyers at Brady Preston Brown in Cedar Rapids represent seriously injured accident victims throughout Iowa.

What is a catastrophic injury? It is more than an unfortunate event - it is a tragedy that permanently changes life as you know it. While most injuries may result in a few trips to the doctor and a set of other inconveniences, a catastrophic injury will wreak havoc on all facets of your world, from your career to your finances, to your family to your hobbies. Very simply, a catastrophic accident could shatter your life and leave everything that you knew in pieces.

At Brady Preston Gronlund, we work hard to put the pieces back together after our client suffers a serious accident and injury. As the hospital bills pile up and as the insurance company refuses to see your side of the story, we can examine the evidence of your case and determine who is responsible for the tragedy that occurred and why. Located in Cedar Rapids and serving all of Eastern Iowa, we take pride in handling the most complex and distinctive catastrophic accident cases across the state. In the past, we have handled accident cases involving:

  • Farm equipment accidents and agricultural accidents.
  • Car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents.
  • Accidents caused by faulty auto parts.
  • Nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse cases.
  • Erb's palsy and birth trauma cases.
  • Traumatic brain injury cases.
  • Wrongful death cases.

A catastrophic injury can alter your life - an accident attorney can help you find justice

Unfortunately, catastrophic accidents and serious injuries take place each day in Iowa - they can occur when you are driving on I-80, when you are working on your farm, when you are in the hospital, or even when you are in your own home. These serious accidents commonly involve traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, nerve damage, back injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, disfigurement, severe burns, eye injuries, internal injuries, multiple fractures, or even death. In many cases, these severe injuries and outcomes often require ongoing medical care and result in lifelong disabilities.

Catastrophic injuries can have harsh repercussions:

  • You may not be able to return to your former job - either for an extended period of time or forever.
  • You may not be able to reenter the workforce at all.
  • You may not be able to continue to financially support your family.
  • Your financial security may be threatened by medical bills and ongoing medical costs.
  • You may not be able to be a companion to your spouse, resulting in the loss of care, affection, and intimacy.
  • You may not be able to enjoy your former interests and hobbies, such as playing the piano, riding a bike, or reading a book.
  • You may continue to suffer emotionally or psycologically from the trauma of your accident.

Although we can't do anything to completely erase these painful losses, we can help you to recover compensation for what has happened to your life. This could mean payment for the damages listed above, depending on the details of your case. If another person or company was responsible for the accident, they should also be responsible for the stark changes in your quality of life following your injury.
