Compensation for catastrophic injuries in Connecticut communities, including Norwalk and Stamford

The Pickel Law Firm, LLC has helped burn victims, amputees and people who have suffered other types of disfiguring and debilitating injuries to obtain justice and compensation for their losses in cases involving the following:

  • Automobile collisions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Animal attacks
  • Playground accidents

Over more than 65 years of combined experience, our personal injury attorneys in Connecticut have developed professional relationships with accident reconstructionists, medical specialists, physical and occupational therapists and other highly respected experts in Norwalk, Stamford and surrounding Connecticut communities. We rely on these powerful resources and on our extensive knowledge to ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for your serious injuries.

Recovery for burn injuries

Burn injuries are extremely painful and cause profound physical damage, such as disfigurement, loss of sensation, loss of mobility and loss of limb. These devastating burn injuries also result in severe emotional and psychological harm, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), loss of self-esteem, depression and the inability to enjoy or take pleasure in living life.

Our lawyers have walked through the treatment and recovery process with burn injury victims and understand the challenges you face. We have successfully helped others to overcome the obstacles resulting from electrocutions, car crashes, fires and other types of negligent accident cases. We are confident in our ability to help you too.

Head and spinal injuries in Connecticut

The nonprofit Christopher & Dana Reeves Foundation estimates the lifetime costs to a 25-year-old who suffers a spinal cord injury to be approximately:

  • $4.53 million for high tetraplegia (C1–C4)
  • $3.32 million for low tetraplegia (C5–C8)
  • $2.22 million for paraplegia
  • $1.52 million for incomplete motor function at any level

The nonprofit Family Caregiver Alliance reports that lifetime costs of living with a traumatic brain injury can reach as much as $4 million.  These are only the economic costs and do not include lost earnings or non-economic pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life’s activities, permanent disability or loss of use and/or function of body parts.

Obtaining the compensation you deserve

In addition to physical pain and personal losses, catastrophic injuries can diminish your earning capacity and may permanently keep you from working. The lifelong financial implications of sustaining burns, disfigurement, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, neck injury and loss of limb can seriously strain your family’s financial wellbeing. Our lawyers consider how your disabilities affect your long-term future when we calculate your rightful compensation.
