Catastrophic Injuries

Attorneys representing Eastern Connecticut residents who have suffered disability or loss of livelihood due to serious injuries

A catastrophic injury is serious enough to leave a person permanently disabled, affecting their ability to earn a livelihood and do the activities they love. Coupled with the expense of medical bills, catastrophic injuries create major financial hardships on people and those closest to them.

The most important skill an attorney can have in handling a catastrophic injury case is the ability to fully convey to a judge or jury what it really means to lose the ability to take care of yourself, to take care of your loved ones, or to even recognize yourself in the mirror. Helping others see what these losses really mean is what we do for our clients.

What Is A Catastrophic Injury?

Examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injury or closed-head injury
  • Amputations
  • Loss of hearing or vision
  • Severe burns, scarring, or disfigurement
  • Multiple fractures

I could not have asked for an easier, stress free way to handle my legal business. I dealt with Mike mostly and it was a pleasure, but the staff was great too! Definitely a positive experience and a PROFESSIONAL I'm glad to have in my circle.

For thirty years, we have never faced a vendor-related contract failure... but it finally happened.We turned to the compassionate team at Anderson and Anderson, for our goal was a resolution that met the needs of clients and agency but didn't turn into something nasty or not reflective of our corporate culture.Chris and his team at Anderson and Anderson were professional, calm and supportive. Through a strong and guiding presence, they helped us successfully negotiate a settlement with a vendor that failed to deliver as promised.While it was a challenge to experience this process, Chris translated the legal-ease and clearly protected our best interests and that of our client. We could not have been more pleased or grateful for his guidance and support.I can clearly envision how he would protect those injured and in need of a skilled advocate. We had to go to court, and other clients may have to do so, as well. Ultimately it really matters who you choose to be your representative: someone who says "they will fight for you," or someone who has a proven record of walking into a courtroom to fight on your behalf.
