Law Offices of Michael D Payne
Catastrophic Injuries

Maximizing Compensation For Life-Changing Injuries

When an accident results in profound or permanent injury, recovery is measured in years. Some never fully heal. The victim and the family suffer physical challenges, financial hardships and emotional heartache.

If your loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, you want a lawyer who will fight for every dollar of compensation. You can count on the Law Offices of Michael D. Payne to hold the negligent parties accountable for your losses and suffering. In 25 years of advocacy for the injured, we have handled big cases with big results.

The Experience And Resources For Catastrophic Injury

We have represented people badly hurt by auto collisions, medical negligence, construction site hazards and other tragedies. We are familiar with severe and permanent injuries, including:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Loss of limb
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Facial disfigurement
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Eye injuries

These injuries demand significant medical resources, from emergency surgery and reconstructive surgery to assisted care or round-the-clock nursing. In the case of spinal cord trauma, the person may be forever paralyzed. With a brain injury, the person may seem outwardly fine yet suffer cognitive impairment or behavioral changes. Many victims need long-term physical therapy and/or psychological counseling to rebuild their lives.

We work with many professionals to understand the extent of disability, gauge the chances for recovery, and document the economic harm. We also work with accident reconstructionists and other experts to establish the underlying negligence that led to irreversible harm.

The Insurance Companies Know What Your Case Is Worth

When an accident results in permanent or catastrophic injuries, the defendant’s insurance company does the math. They know the value of your case, and they do not want to pay that much money. They will either approach you with a lowball settlement offer to buy you off cheaply or they will fight liability and downplay the injuries.

Michael D. Payne worked for the insurance companies early in his career. He knows how insurers evaluate personal injury claims and the tactics they will use to avoid full compensation. We counter those tactics with a thorough investigation and investment in experts to provide solid evidence and strong testimony of all the ways the accident has changed your life and created hardships for your family.
