Los Angeles Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
After an Accident Causes Serious Injuries, You Need Someone to Fight for You
We rely on our car to brake when it is supposed to and our airbags to inflate in an accident. When we give a baby a toy, we expect it to be free of toxic paints and chemicals. Likewise, we trust those around us on the roads, in public spaces, and at work to act with regard to everyone’s safety.
When negligence builds up, the systems we have put into place to keep our society safe break down. Accidents can result in catastrophic injuries to innocent bystanders. If this sounds like what happened to you, we want to help. You’ve already suffered an injury—you don’t need any other hardships.

We Protect Your Rights After a Catastrophic Injury
Oftentimes, clients ask us what makes an injury catastrophic?
When considering a lawsuit, it’s any injury that results in permanent disabilities of some kind. Catastrophic injuries may prevent you from returning to your job, doing work around the house, being able to drive yourself, or completing other daily requirements.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bone-crushing injuries
- Injuries leading to wrongful death
- Birth injuries
With more than four decades of combined legal experience, our lawyers know how to promote your interests in our court system. No matter how complex your case is, we’re confident we can handle it.
Catastrophic Injuries Caused by Defective Products
Serious injuries caused by defective or dangerous products are among the most frustrating because many of them could easily have been avoided. Manufacturers and designers endanger all consumers when they fail to make sure their products are safe before putting them on the marketplace.
At Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation, our lawyers specialize in catastrophic injury cases involving dangerous and defective products, such as:
- Auto parts
- Construction equipment
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Household appliances
- Medical devices
- Child safety products
- Children's toys
Catastrophic injuries come in many forms. They may entail severe burns and disfigurement requiring extensive surgery. They may cause the loss of function of our arms or legs or result in amputation. They may result in blindness. Injuries to the brain can result in the loss of skills and mental capacity.
When a defective product causes serious harm to you or a family member, we can help you bring a product liability lawsuit to pursue fair compensation.
How Shoop | APLC Can Help You Seek Justice
Catastrophic injuries can change a life in an instant by adding challenges that may subside but will never fully be overcome. At Shoop | APLC, we represent clients in this situation.
We start every case with a client interview so we can get the details of the accident, their injury, and how their future may change. Then, our catastrophic injury lawyers in Los Angeles will investigate the accident to find the underlying cause and determine who can be held liable.
Everything we do is geared toward winning our clients maximum compensation.
Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, we can help you determine what damages you should ask for in three main categories: general, special and punitive. General damages compensate for quantifiable losses, while special damages compensate for non-concrete harms to your quality of life. Punitive damages are assessed to punish the negligent party and are not reliant on any of the plaintiff’s costs.
In catastrophic injury cases, the damages are often substantial.
Where liability is established, the victim may claim for:
- Medical expenses
- Hospitalization costs
- Loss of income
- Lost earning capacity
- Rehabilitation costs
- Retraining expense
- Long-term care costs
- Pain and suffering
In addition, if the defendant’s conduct was malicious, oppressive, and/or fraudulent, punitive or exemplary damages may be awarded to punish and deter them from future unlawful conduct.
