Although any injury can be life-changing, some are serious enough to be classified as “catastrophic.” Generally speaking, a catastrophic injury is one that is permanent, significant, and results in considerable economic and non-economic damages. These injuries are more severe than other types of injuries, often leading to higher medical bills, greater lost income or wages, and more significant effects on the lives of victims and their loved ones.
Seeking compensation for a catastrophic injury takes an experienced and knowledgeable attorney, one who has successfully handled these types of personal injury cases before. At Bolt Law Firm, our Anoka catastrophic injury lawyers have successfully fought on behalf of severely injured victims and their families, recovering millions of dollars on their behalf. We understand what it takes to prove your case and are prepared to aggressively advocate for the maximum recovery you are owed.

Q:What is a product defect?
A:A manufacturer can be held liable for injuries that result from use of product that is not safe or does not warn of potential hazards.
As previously mentioned, catastrophic injury cases are not the same as standard personal injury claims. Victims typically experience far more extensive damages. Insurance companies and other liable parties know that catastrophic injury claims tend to be high in value, meaning they are much more likely to dispute or deny these claims. We take great pride in representing people from all walks of life and always prioritize the needs of our clients. It is incredibly important that you work with a knowledgeable attorney, one who has experience specifically handling catastrophic injury cases like yours.

- Learn how the injury has affected your everyday life, as well as your future, including all past, current, and future challenges you have faced/are facing
- Conduct a full and immediate investigation into the event that caused your injury, including how it happened and who is liable
- Handle all communication with the insurance company (and/or another liable party) on your behalf so that you can focus on your physical recovery
- Work with accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, and other industry experts to evaluate the cause, nature, severity, and effects of your injury
- Meticulously gather all available evidence and submit necessary paperwork and documents in support of your claim
- Prepare you and your case for litigation and trial, if necessary, as well as represent you in all related court proceedings
