From Whiplash to Paralysis and Traumatic Brain Injury, our Firm is Prepared
We represent injured people throughout southern California from all walks of life. Our office represents professional athletes and construction workers who have been injured on the job as well as teenagers injured in car accidents and retirees injured in slip-and-fall accidents. From elite athletes to minimum-wage-earning teens, we are prepared to help you. And even if you do not think that your injuries are serious, we can have our medical investigators perform a thorough examination of your case to determine if you have injuries that are not immediately obvious. Some of these types of injuries may not present symptoms for days or weeks after an accident:
- Hairline bone fractures
- Psychological injuries and PTSD
- Traumatic brain injury
- Soft tissue damage
- Spinal cord and back injuries
The above represent only a small sample of the many types of injuries that are not apparent to the untrained eye. For instance, repetitive motion injuries can be debilitating and may lead to the need for compensation but the damage may be “hidden.” Children, also, can suffer injuries on playgrounds, at school or daycare or at a friend’s house that are not immediately apparent. Elder abuse at nursing homes or by in-home caregivers can also be difficult to identify. Internal damage from defective pharmaceutical drugs may also not reveal symptoms immediately. Our legal team and medical consultants know how to investigate such cases.
We are a law firm dedicated to personal injury and workers’ compensation and we have recovered more than $50 million for our clients since 1999. Because of our success, we have access to the best medical professionals in southern California and we have expert investigators to help us find the truth. We will call on witnesses and experts from a variety of fields to help us build your case and pursue maximum compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering.
Catastrophic Injury Cases Require Lawyers who are Aggressive Advocates
There are many reasons why catastrophic injury cases must be handled by an experienced firm who has extensive resources. Some of the resources necessary in such cases involve access to neurosurgeons, orthopedic experts, pathologists and other medical specialists. Accident-scene investigators, life-care specialists, psychiatrists, and others may all be necessary to provide the most compelling argument for a favorable settlement or judgment. The Law Office of Patrick G. Shea, APC has all of these resources and has the experience for cases involving:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Wrongful death
