Westchester County Catastrophic Injuries Lawyers

Attorneys in Fairfield County for Victims of Severe Injuries

In most personal injury situations, the injuries will eventually heal, and the victim will generally be able to resume the life he or she had prior to the accident. While the victim might experience lingering pain or other residual effects, such concerns are usually manageable. In some cases, however, another party's negligence could cause the victim to suffer much more severe and life-changing injuries.

For more than 70 years, the trusted attorneys at Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC have been helping victims of catastrophic injuries seek full compensation under the law. We understand the challenges that those who have been severely injured may be facing, and we have recovered many millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients. If you or a member of your family has been seriously injured in any type of accident, we are ready to put our knowledge and experience to work for you.


Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are typically considered to be those which require extensive, ongoing medical care and result in a significant decrease in the victim's quality of life. Those who suffer such injuries are often left with permanent problems that leave them unable to work. At our firm, we help victims collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, home modifications, pain, and suffering related to catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Severed or amputated limbs
  • Thermal or chemical burn injuries
  • Neck and spine injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)


Burn injuries are a common type of catastrophic injury. While most people understand the dangers of burns caused by exposure to intense heat, there are other ways in which a victim can be severely burned. Contact with caustic chemicals or electric current can also cause serious burns. At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we understand that burn injuries can leave a victim with a lifetime of pain, nerve damage, and permanent scarring. Burn victims often require specialized medical care, long-term rehabilitation, and other treatment. The costs associated with such care can be staggering. Our lawyers help burn victims recover economic and non-economic damages for the injuries they have sustained.

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) can range in severity from a relatively minor concussion to life-altering, permanent brain damage. TBIs cause a variety of physical, cognitive, and emotional impairments, as well as a dramatic decrease in the quality of the victim's life. If you or someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury in any kind of accident, the team at Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC can help you seek the compensation you deserve.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Catastrophic injuries generally include injuries to the back, neck, and spinal cord. In addition to being very painful, a spinal cord injury can lead to the loss of mobility, the loss of ability to sense touch or temperatures, muscle and nerve spasms, and many other problems. In extreme cases, damage to the spinal cord can result in paralysis or death. Our lawyers offer guidance and representation to spinal cord injury victims throughout the region.

Frequently Asked Questions


Who Can Be Held Liable for a Catastrophic Injury?

When you have suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident caused by another party's negligence, the negligent party may be financially liable for your losses. In some cases, multiple parties might have been negligent, so each could share in the financial liability as well. Catastrophic injury cases are complex, but an attorney from Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC can help you navigate the justice system.


My Injuries Left Me Permanently Disabled. What Kind of Compensation Could I Receive?

If your accident caused you to become partially or totally disabled, you could be eligible to recover compensation for not only your time away from work but also for your lost future earnings. Our lawyers can help you build a case to maximize your financial recovery.


How Do I Know if My Injuries Are Catastrophic?

A catastrophic injury is any type of injury that dramatically changes the victim's life. Many such injuries may take years to heal, while others never heal completely. When it comes to filing a personal injury claim for a catastrophic injury, however, no injury is too minor. If you have sustained any injuries or losses whatsoever as the result of someone else's negligence, you could have a valid personal injury case.


How Much Compensation Can I Get?

There is no way to accurately predict the exact amount of money your personal injury case is worth. There are many factors which influence this number. However, when you choose Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC to represent you, you can rest assured that we will aggressively pursue the maximum compensation possible.
