Serious Injury

We understand serious injuries can touch all aspects of a victim’s life. They may prevent you from working and engaging in simple daily living activities. Chronic pain can lead to stress and depression. We have seen clients with psychological damage such as severe post-traumatic stress disorder leaving them unable to conduct simple conversations. Serious injuries affect the victim and his or her relationships. A victim of serious injury may be surrounded by people who do not understand what the person is going through. Traumatic Brain Injuries may have a widespread impact on all areas of a person’s life, leaving a victim feeling isolated and uncertain about where to turn to for help. Paternoster Law Group is happy to lend an ear to victims of any type of serious injury and will get clients the care and compensation they need.

In serious injury cases, we retain expert witnesses for clients to ensure they receive the compensation deserved. Life Care Planning expert witnesses are often Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctors, also known as Physiatrists. They are trained to diagnose and treat severe long-term injuries and conditions. Additionally, they have the training to calculate the costs of medication, treatment, and surgeries expected in the future for serious injury victims.  Frequently we retain forensic economists who discount the expected future treatment back to present value, allowing us to explain what many years of treatment in the future is worth in today’s dollars. Economists, along with vocational rehabilitation experts hired by our team, assist with explaining the amount of money that a serious injury victim deserves in past and future wage loss. Some of our economists also have the background and expertise to quantify and testify regarding a client’s hedonic damages (loss of enjoyment of life).

The largest part of any serious injury claim is referred to as pain and suffering damages.  We will fight to get every penny of pain and suffering damages each client deserves. Persuading the responsible party as to what the fair amount should be is a product of experience and an area of the law where our firm shines. By taking the time to understand each person’s injuries and the impact on their lives, we can discover the client’s story and share it with an insurance company or present it to a jury when necessary.

Best Lawyer! Friendly and courteous.

From the first day i met with Glenn i could tell that he was an honest man, and strictly about his business and satisfaction to others. He was very respectful, very professional, and very blunt. Most of all, he kept his word with me so from my experience i can say he is a man of his word. He promised me that he would make the other party settle and get me the most money he could, so he fought very hard to win my case for my personal injury claim, and in the end of it all, he got me a $100,000 settlement and the insurance company paid every penny of it within 6 months. With that being all we can get because that’s all they had, i can honestly vouch and say that Glenn is one of the best attorneys that i know. He also took the time to speak to me and give me great advice when he cut me the check! For that, i find him to be a very pleasant and generous person and i would recommend him to anyone.

Thank You,
